LeBron is stupid, gutless

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.
