LeBron is stupid, gutless

Posted on: January 13, 2011 8:09 am

The title pretty much says it all, doesn't it? LeBron James is a moron, and LeBron James is a coward. This stuff is obvious, but James hasn't gotten to the point -- doesn't deserve to ever get to the point -- where his crimes against common sense and courtesy should be ignored or written off as old news.

Although it is getting rather old. In a delightful, how-low-can-he-go sort of way.

The latest was James' declaration that "karma is a b----" after Cleveland was routed by 55 points by the Lakers on Tuesday night. Shortly after the game went final, James sent out his Tweet heard 'round the world, commenting on karma and concluding that "'God sees everything!"

James never mentioned Cleveland specifically, but he didn't have to. The timing was obvious. The implication was clear. Cleveland had been mean to him when he left for the Heat, the townsfolk burning his jersey and the owner firing off a red-hot letter to the fans vowing to win a title before "the self-proclaimed King."

After that 55-point loss to the Lakers, Cleveland had the worst record in the NBA. Miami was No. 1 in the East. Karma, James told us, is a b----.

After the world recoiled in disgust at James' cruelty, James backed off: That Tweet wasn't directed at Cleveland. He didn't say who it was directed to, didn't say specifically or even give a hint generically, meaning that was a lie right up there with "the dog ate my homework" or "I had no idea what the word contraction meant."

And in case anyone saw through the transparency of his lie that he hadn't been talking about Cleveland, James said something else: That wasn't even him who wrote that Tweet. Here's a hint to James, and to future liars everywhere: When you're giving two different excuses, telling two completely unrelated stories to cover your tracks, you're busted. You know it. We know it.

So finally, after the contraction fiasco followed by this Tweet nonsense, what we know is this: James isn't smart enough to know when he's about to say something stupid. And he isn't brave enough to stand behind his words when the world calls him on his stupidity.

At this point, maybe he should just shut up.

One should not start a sentence with "and."

Come on Doyel, you're a journalist.

LeBron is stupid, gutless

LeBron is an idiot, but pieces like this only fuel his meglomanical ego. He has decided the best thing for his "brand" was to become a hated man, the villian of the NBA. His pompous hour long announcement address (as boring as it actually was) is all the proof we needed. He cares about championships, and as the Cavs have looked so far without him, I can't fault him for looking elsewhere to obtain the championship(s). I guess the point I'm trying to make is that this is exactly what LeBron wants. He's going to poke people, make some off the wall comments every now and again, retract them, and soak in all the hate. Unfortunately, I eventually see LeBron getting exactly what he wants...his name on every news media outlet (good or bad) and several rings. He'll get the last laugh. As far as people trying to compare the real LeBron to the real MJ, I don't see it. I can't remember anytime when MJ alienated so many people at one time, nor can I remember him saying idiotic remarks, then try to backtrack. MJ was pompous, but wouldn't you if you knew you were the best player of your time? Also...MJ did attend college, statistically that makes him smarter than LeBron.

LeBron is stupid, gutless

I don't know why people are surprised by what the man does, he is what we thought he was.  Nothing wrong with that.  Lebron is no more narcissistic than Jordan (did you see that hall of fame speech?).  I knew what was coming back in 2007 when 'The King' went across the parking lot of the 'Q' to root for the Yankees in the first round of the MLB playoffs.  He spat on Cleveland fans then, what made you think he would change?  Like a city of battered spouses.  Get over it C-town.  I still think the 1989 Cavs lineup was the best we ever had.  Jordan misses 'The Shot', and we stomp the Pistons.

Seems odd that LeBron would prefer guys like Larry Hughes and Antawn Jamison to Amare and other elite players, considering he left Cleveland to play with his current sound like a bitter Cavs fan.

Since Lebron is such a bible thumper since he says "God sees everything", I wonder if he knew God was watching when this self-absorbed, money hungry, "dumber than a box of rocks" imbacil (spelling??) took a dagger to his hometown team by breaking hearts on live television and announcing that he was taking his talents to South Beach.  LeBron let us know what God says about love of money and pride in the bible next time will you.  This arrogant fool has no idea what it means to put in an honest, hard day of work in his life like the majority of Americnas.  I cannot wait for people to line up and say "Karma is a b.... to this clown when his team gets run by either Boston, Lakers, Dallas or San Antonio in the playoffs!

Dan Gilbert is stupid, gutless

This is what the title should read.  Or maybe "Doyel is stupid..etc"  Dan Gilbert is a joke of all human beings, and LeBron could never say enough bad things about that clown.  Dan Gilbert, the guy who for years made money off sub-prime junk loans and knew in the long run they would kill many working class Americans.  Dan Gilbert deserves a lot worse than a struggling basketball team.  LeBron is right about Karma, and I hope LeBron wins a ring this year or next and shuts up all the haters once and for all.
