LeBron James Taunts Cavs Over Historic Loss: As the Cleveland Cavaliers were experienced the most lopsided loss in franchise history -- a 112-57 rout to the Los Angeles Lakers -- LeBron James posted this message on Twitter directed at the team: "Crazy. Karma is a b****.. Gets you every time. Its not good to wish bad on anybody. God sees everything!"

Christ, what an asshole.

Seriously, this choke-artist man-child is like the Sarah Palin of the NBA. What exactly is Cleveland paying karmic retribution for- your own self-aggrandizing, melodramatic exit from the franchise?

Hearing him try to explain the tweet and coming off as a complete moron is an example of why I love twitter so much.

Also, note to james, if there's a god he doesn't give a damn about the your little spat with cleveland.

I wouldn't mind a deity from the Rust Belt. He probably wouldn't be so hard on people. And Heaven would be full of old muscle cars.

Crazy. Karma is a b****..

He's talking about Karma? Oh sweet irony, you have a new suitor and his name is Lebron.

I get that LeBron is still pissed at Dan Gilbert, who was pretty classless himself during the whole "Decision" debacle. And, yes, the haplessness of this team is the proof of LeBron's reason for leaving, that the Cavs had done little to surround him with any other talent.

What hit me, though, is that 8 months ago these losers were his boys, the guys he went to battle with every night. From their point of view he abandoned them for better teammates, told the world they weren't good enough to play with him, and now has the gall to mock them on Twitter.

Head on a swivel, brother. Like someone once said, "Karma's a bitch".

Yup.

Karma sure is a bitch.

Nice to see LeBron has already stepped back from this tweet. What is that, #3 that was posted by "a friend"? Wilbon on PTI suggested it was fine to post whatever you want on Twitter as long as you take it back later.

Karma is a bitch.

LeBron attributes the Cavs' loss to payback for bad thoughts about LeBron.

Perhaps LeBron is the son of Karma.

Or maybe he's just a son of a xxxxx.

With all the crap LeBron has spread on top of his current and former teammates, coaches, and fans, he'd better pray the Heat win the title this year.

Otherwise Karma will be his ignorant arrogant ass disappearing once again come playoff time.

Never expected that I'd be rooting so much for the Lakers.

Lebron is the best PR guy Kobe's ever had.

LeBron James lost to the Clippers? The Clippers?!?! The team owned by that perv Sterling? God must hate LeBron, I guess.

Agree 100% with the sentiment, but I liken him more to AlGore, loved by the media and those that hold themselves better and more knowing than regular joes, yet rejected by the people. Palin is more loved by the everyday person and despised by elites and media types.

Really? You think that's how it is?

I've yet to meet an everyday person who doesn't count LeBron and Sarah among the assholes of the earth. I can't speak for the elitists and media types. I don't hang out with them.

I'm adding "media type" to my resume and "elite" to my business cards. As soon as I get some.

Where do people get that idea? Her approval rating in polls is dismal. Even in Alaska, it's only 33 percent.

posted by rcade at 03:20 PM on January 14

Don Cherry probably approves of her. Because he's sick of the elites and artsy people running politics.
