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.

LeBron is stupid, gutless

LeBron James has basically turned into the Sarah Palin of sports. They both have their hard core supporters (maybe 20% of the population), but the rest of society are disgusted by them. I notice LeBron is now taking a page directly out of Palin's playbook: say or do something off the wall, get mocked for it, then play victim and blame the media as being out to get you.


YOU SUMMED IT UP PERFECTLY. COULDNT HAVE SAID IT BETTER MYSELF IF I HAD 3 DAYS TO PREPARE A STATEMENT...

Two different millitary commanders were responsible for systemic murders, not Teddy.  Teddy tried to cover the second one up, but he did not "orchestrate" it.  Learn your history better.  The same Teddy that rode a horse in battle to protect America also later became the first American to win the Nobel Peace prize.

What have you done for your country?

Get off these boards jerk.  Nobody cares about Teddy or wants to talk about Teddy or protecting America on CBS.  There is a time and place for everything and this isn't the forum for what you're talking about.  It has nothing to do with sports at all... zero.   And Doyel, Lebron, etc didn't make any comments that relate to anything you and that other moron said....  find another website to talk about Teddy riding horses to protect America... nobody cares around here.

lebron pokes fun at his old team and owner and he is stupid and gutless.... Doyle, I know u are trying to "shock" us with your writing. We know your not good enough of a writer to get us to read or comment on your stuff otherwise.
Of course it's gutless and stupid.  How did this become a Doyel problem?  It's not even an opinion... it's totally gutless and stupid.  Why isn't it?  Hiding behind a keyboard and making a comment like that is 100 percent gutless and stupid.  If he's going to do that then do it the right way.  He could have said it right to a reporters face and backed it up.  He could have emailed the media with his comments and stood by what he says. 

He not only chose to use twitter but he chose to lie... he chose to pretend he wasn't talking about the Cavaliers when anybody with even one ounce of brains knows exactly what he meant.   You can hate Doyel all you want, and sometimes I'm not his biggest fan either.  But when he's right he's right.. and if you can't recognize when Doyel is right and you smash him every time he writes anything, that makes you just as stupid and immature as Lebron.

Another retarded post by the Doyel man. Quit drinking the Haterade people and get off LeBron's nuts!!!! Listen man.  This article has nothing to do with Doyel's hate for Lebron.  It has everything to do with Lebron being stupid and immature.  Don't get me wrong, even though I don't like Lebron James I've stuck up for him on these boards plenty lately.  I think he's an amazing player, nothing short of spectacular and one of the biggest talents the NBA has ever seen.  The proof of how good he is comes when you click on the standings and see a Cleveland team that was number 1 overall with him about to finish last in the NBA the first season after he leaves. If that doesn't prove how unbelievable the guy is then nothing will.

But that being said, taking a shot at the Cleveland organization and fans on twitter like he did was flat out stupid. It's something an immature 12 year old will do.  The kid is barely in his mid 20's, I don't expect him to act like he's 40 or 50 like some people on here want him to act.  I expect some cockiness,,,, the big birthday bashes, the "king" labels, the "heatles" comments.. those are all typical for a kid that rich and popular at his young age. 

But his last comments were over the top and flat out ignorant and completely disrespectful to the organization that treated him with nothing but respect.  There is a line... and Lebron crossed it.  This is one time where he deserves the bashing he's getting.......  I doubt he's losing any sleep over the bashing but hey... he deserves it.

OK so when during his entire NBA career hasJames said anything that was even close to being news worthy?  The only thing that kind of maybe be on that list was if he was leaving Cleveland.  We all knew he was and when it came time look how totally unprofessional he did that.  He can play ball, I didn't say he was a professional ballplayer, but he can play the game on an individual basis, unfortunately for him it is not an individual game, it's a TEAM game.  He has won nothing in the NBA but he is "King", again self procalimed.

LeBron is stupid, gutless... new section for NBA

Here's an idea?! There needs to be a section on this webpage dedicated to those selfish athletes who care more about themselves over the team or city they play for... or did. Put it under the NBA heading because that's were you'll find most of them. That way when you log onto the homepage, you can read about SPORTS and what TEAMS do/did to win games and make their cities proud, not what some individual "Tweets!" 
Just curious... "KING" of what???

"There are good men and bad men of all nationalities, creeds and colors; and if this world of ours is ever to become what we hope some day it may become, it must be by the general recognition that the man's heart and soul, the man's worth and actions, determine his standing."

Theodore Roosevelt  Letter, Oyster Bay, NY, September 1, 1903



Did Teddy say this before or after he orchestrated the murders of millions of Philippino civilians?
