MIAMI (CBS4) – LeBron James was called everything but a basketball player, burned in effigy and had ill-will wished on him when he left the Cleveland Cavaliers.
LeBron had something to say back to the Cavaliers and their fans after the team was humiliated by the Los Angeles Lakers Tuesday night. The Lakers took the Cavaliers behind the woodshed, winning the game 112-57.
So, LeBron took to his Twitter account to unload with both barrels on the Cavs and their owner.
“Crazy. Karma is a *expletive*. Gets you every time. It’s not good to wish bad on anybody. God sees everything,” LeBron said.
For those who may have forgotten, the same night James made the decision to bring his talents to Miami, the Cavaliers owner unleashed a hateful letter towards James.
“The self-declared former “King” will be taking the ‘curse’ with him down south. And until he does ‘right’ by Cleveland and Ohio, James (and the town where he plays) will unfortunately own this dreaded spell and bad karma. Just watch,” Cavs owner Dan Gilbert wrote.
For reference purposes, the Miami Heat have the best record in the Eastern conference and the Cavaliers have the worst record in the NBA.
LeBron 1, Cavaliers 0.
James and the Heat have taken to being the villains at arenas around the NBA. The Heat work hard throughout the game to take the boos and turn them into ooooh’s and aaaahh’s.
The Heat play the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday night and then play Denver Nuggets on Thursday night. If the Heat win both games, they will push their road winning streak to 15 straight games. The all-time road winning streak record is 16 held by the Los Angeles Lakers.
Assuming the Heat finish the current road trip undefeated, the Heat could break the record at Madison Square Garden against the New York Knicks on January 27. But, the Heat now have to get past the Clippers, Nuggets, and Bulls before they even think about breaking the record.
