LeBron James

LeBron's James' tweet following the Cavaliers' 112-57 loss to the Lakers.

I’ve never really been a fan of LeBron, especially after “The Decision” and his general disdain for the city of Cleveland this past summer. I don’t have a problem with him leaving the Cavs for what he thinks is a better opportunity to win, but don’t make so a production out of it.

Just win.

LeBron sunk to a new low, however, when he tweeted this following his former team’s 112-57 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers:

“Crazy. Karma is a b****.. Gets you every time. Its not good to wish bad on anybody. God sees everything!”

Why do that? Did leaving a city in shock, sinking the value of the Cavs’ franchise by nearly $300 million, and just generally pissing a lot of people off not do enough?

On top of everything, LeBron wouldn’t even take ownership of the tweet when questioned about it by reporters. Claiming he didn’t understand how to “retweet,” LeBron explained that he was simply passing along something sent to him by someone else.

If you’re going to say something that inflamatory towards an organization that bent to your every will during your time there– after leaving them with a bare cupboard just six months ago–at least man up and own it.

Congratulations to LeBron and the Miami Heat for their recent success. I have no doubt that the success will continue–they could even win a title under the right circumstances. But, I will never again respect LeBron as a person after this latest stint.
