Though many basketball fans are excited to watch LeBron James play for the Los Angeles Lakers during the upcoming NBA season, it appears not everyone in the city is looking forward to it.

Dude need to get extra security around town.

Earlier this month, Lakers legend Kobe Bryant welcomed LeBron James to the family.
