In the world before Twitter, you merely had to guess how a superstar like LeBron James would have felt upon seeing his former team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, suffer an embarrassingly bad loss to the Lakers. These days you know. LeBron James’ Twitter feed had a pointed message last night after the Los Angeles Lakers humiliated the Cavs 112-57.
“Crazy. Karma is a b****.. Gets you every time. Its not good to wish bad on anybody. God sees everything!”
Let’s set aside for a moment the grammatical error and focus on the meaning: James, a father of two, is a) passing judgment on a team that he voluntarily left; b) seems to think the Cavs deserve bad karma for being mad he left; c) might be wishing bad himself and d) thinks God has time to sit around punishing arrogant NBA owners.
Not sure I agree with those lessons – perhaps the tweet could have been referring to something else, but it underlines the ego that King James seems to have in heavy supply since he left the Cavs. Shouldn’t he be happy with his new life in Miami and let bygones be bygones in Cleveland? What do you think?
