HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS — It’s probably best to go ahead and cancel those reunion plans for 2025 right now. LeBron James won’t be receiving an invite anytime this century from the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Not after his latest dig at his former franchise.
James unleashed a merciless taunt through his Twitter account last night as the Cavs were being shredded by the Lakers at Staples Center. We’ll make it bold so there is no confusion about what he said and what he meant: “Crazy. Karma is a b****. Gets you every time. It’s not good to wish bad on anybody. God sees everything!”
The Cavs are in the midst of one of the most dismal stretches in franchise history, having lost 11 in a row. They are already the league’s worst team. But last night brought new lows, in addition to the tweeted taunt from James.
That 112-57 loss to the Lakers produced the fewest points the Cavs have ever scored in a game, not to mention the fewest points the Lakers have allowed in the shot-clock era.
“It can’t be any worse than this. If it is, someone will have to help me because I don’t know how much of this I can take,” Cavs veteran forward Antawn Jamison told Brian Windhorst of ESPN.com’s Heat Index. “This by far is rock-bottom. It’s definitely by far one of the most embarrassing moments that I’ve been a part of as far as basketball.”
While the Cavs are on the bottom of the pile in the East, the Heat is soaring behind the play of James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. They’ve lost just twice since Thanksgiving and sit atop the Eastern Conference standings heading into tonight’s game at Staples Center against the Clippers.
