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.

You might want to start saying things to people's faces rather than blog-bash them on CBS.
You are a coward and you need to get a life outside of "journalism".
The Howard Stern thing is getting old, so stop trying to copy.

You suck.

Lebron James...the Tom Cruise of the NBA. Just because you're famous doesn't mean you can't be more stupid than 98% of the population. When God offered him the choice of athletic talent or a brain, he obviously made his choice. The result? Well, karma's a b^&*^!

Bringing the heat like no one else can or wants to. Say what you want about Doyel, but he's got more balls than LeBron James ever will. I actually felt a little sympathy when James when I saw how far Cleveland took their hurt and anger. Then I saw what a complete toolbag James is, and now I see that he deserves every bit of it. Take that loss with you to the trainer's table, punk.

The real irony here is the Cavs are the worst team in the league because of Lebron.  If he was still there, they would be doing great.  They still have a couple decent players, but clearly they weren't prepared to handle life after Lebron so soon.  So it's not Karma, it's Lebron leaving that caused Cleveland to fall so low.  Well, that and injuries to Gibson and Vara and that leaves them even more depleted.
When Jamario Moon is getting significant minutes, you know you are in trouble.

Gregg Doyel is gutless, stupid.  I don't understand all this hostility towards a guy that wants to win a championship???  It's totally ridiculous.

As someone who does not have a dog in the race I will say this:  LeBron had every right to leave Cleveland as a FA, and every right to sign with Miami, but he CHOSE to be a jerk about the way he did it, with the decision, talk about playing the role of villain, and trash talking a last place team about a game he was not involved in.  When he chooses to go out of his way to attack the Cavs, he should at least own up to it.  Even though thre are a lot of people hating on the Heat, there is not nearly the same hostility directed at Bosh or Wade, because they are not behaving like a spoiled child the way LeBron has.

LeBron is the best basketball player in the world, in my opinion.
But being rich, successful, and famous apparently can't stop him from being a douche.

I love listening to the Heat fans justify everything he does - if you care so much Miami,
start attending games for your hometown teams.  Joke of a sports town.

Lebron's problem is that he's a ballin mofo.  I'd kill to have him on my team.  He just has zero class.  Dennis Rodman has more class than James.

I'll give LeBoob credit - I'll tune in just to hear or watch him do something stupid. Just when you think he can't possibly go any lower, he manages to do it. Props!

And if he were on your team, you'd have his back too. Chill man, it's all good.  :)  It's just millionnaire's whining at each other.  Kind of like the Senate. See, money doesn't solve everything.
