LeBron James isn’t playing around when it comes to protecting his Los Angeles home.
The NBA superstar has hired a team of armed guards after learning he was targeted by a team of thieves.
As we previously reported … the LAPD arrested 4 people who had hit more than 24 homes of the rich and famous, including Yasiel Puig, Rihanna, Christina Milian and others.
Cops say the bad guys had a list of 12 more celebrity targets — including LeBron, Matt Damon and Viola Davis.
We’re told LeBron is taking the situation very seriously — he’s got a wife and 3 kids at home — and is taking every possible measure to protect his family.
Sources tell us … Bron has at least 10 armed security personnel at the home — including off-duty police officers. We’re told the NBA’s security team is also involved in the security plans.
L.A. Rams star Robert Woods — whose home was burglarized — is also working with the NFL security team to ensure his safety as well.
Cops say they believe there are more people involved in the burglary crews — and they’re asking the public for leads to track down the additional suspects.
More celebrities should do the same.
