After seeing his LeBron James mural vandalized for the second time in five days, it was time to put this mural to rest. 

The artist told ESPN he covered the mural with white paint Wednesday not long after a vandal had splattered yellow paint on his work, which featured James in a Los Angeles Lakers jersey on a wall at the Baby Blues BBQ restaurant in Venice.

"I thought I had learned a long time ago to never touch religion or politics," said Never, the Los Angeles-based muralist who has also designed murals of the late Anthony Bourdain and Stuart Scott among many others.

Never has plans to do a Lakers team wall piece for Spectrum SportsNet, the network that televises the Lakers. He did a mural of Lonzo Ball for the network last year.
