Cavs Get No Mercy From LeBron

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.

    The blowout loss at the hands of the Lakers just shows how much of an impact LBJ had on his team. He is the SOLE reason they had the 61-21 record they did. He is an outstanding, complete player and of course his on-court presence will be a difference maker. Without LBJ, the cavs are nothing. They have Mo Williams, Anderson Varejao (out for remainer of season), J.J. Hickson, need I say more. They lack a truly talented offensive threat that can change the course of a game. The Cavs play with no heart and no motivation seems to be present. LeBron James leaving the Cavs meant imminent failure for the Cavs and a new beginning for the Heat, as Wade, James, and Bosh are only giving us a glimpse of what they can do together. No need to hate on LeBron.

  2. PatG says:

    I am a Knicks’ fan and have nothing vested in the Heat, Lebron James or the Caveliers. But, my heart does go out to the Cavs’ fans. LeBron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosch were planning all along to get Bosh and James over to the Heat to join Wade. Let’s face it, they admitted talking about it at the Olympics and I’m sure the Heat knew early on there was a chance it would happen. Why couldn’t he have given his former team a head’s up. Why go on TV with “THE DECISION” and humiliate them that way. LeBron admitted he only told them a half an hour before “THE DECISION”. LeBron had the right to leave the Cavs behind and take his talent to South Beach. However, he could have told the Cavs much earlier and not booked an hour timeslot to tell the world he had better things to do.

  3. Jazzfan says:

    thing is, is the quitter always opens his goofy looking mouth at the worst times. If he still is sad about what Dan Gilbert said, then he is a moron. He doesn’t need to go off keeping this whole thing going like that. No one else in the NBA decided they needed to comment on the loss, and Quitness had no reason to say anything. He’s just pissed that his face is shaped like a pear, and he can’t get over it. He’s obviously losing sleep over how he was treated in Cleveland, or else he wouldn’t feel the need to say anything. And I don’t think he understands what karma is. Karma would be him getting his heart ripped out on national TV like Ohio did thanks to his severe lack of class.

  4. blah says:

    I’m gonna tweet about karma when the Heats loses in the playoffs. Gonna be soooooo funny.

  5. miamiheat says:

    wow i love how ppl hate on lebron for not having a ring but yet he has 2 mvps kobe has 1 and lebron is about 7 years younger into the league than kobe shows how good of an individual player kobe is ;)

  6. DJ3 says:

    @Lakers Fan

    Your right. But dan gilbert probably tweeted the same thing to the cavs fans which made them think it was toward the cavs. But still people need to relax and enjoy there own team (not that there is much). And im suprised a lakers fan said anything like that. usually lakers fans would be on the cavs sides.

  7. Sathish says:

    Its true that the Cavs fans and Dan Gilbert deserved what they got. But instead of tweeting, LeBron could have actually reached out to his former teammates and said something supportive. It was a soul crushing loss.

  8. Mike D says:

    Cavs fans, I feel for ya, but you got to move on. What’s done is done. I live in Toronto and are we worse off without Bosh. Of course we are, but we’re not lamenting the loss of CB4, we’re looking at the positives. We’ve got an exciting young team and given how weak the bottom half of the Eastern Conference is, we’ve actually got a shot at the playoffs. It;s a long shot, but still within reach. Real fans stick through the good and the bad. Cheers.

    • MVP D-Rose says:

      They are sticking through it. They are still second in attendance in the NBA, even being the worst team. The Cavs rank higher than the Heat for home game attendance. Explain that?

  9. Quincy says:

    Man 55 point blowout, thats terrible. Lebron took them to the finals 4 years ago. the cavs failed to make the cut. Dan Gilbert was stupid for attacking lebron like that. That was a “Punk move” in my book and a childish one at that. He deserves to have him team beaten into the dirt and eveyone needs to point at Dan Gilbert. He said that they’ll get a championship before lebron does but the team just doesn’t have the roster. They’ll need another all-star and another all-star PLUS a good supporting cast. Boston has that. LA has that. San Antonio has that. I just want people of cleveland to be happy they had 7 dominant years.

  10. MR. BOXINGSCENE says:

    Miami Heat = 2011 NBA champion

  11. Cadillac Jackson says:

    The NBA is a business. Lebron didn’t commit a crime. He didn’t rob, rape, kill, or molest anyone. He made a business decision. Yes he went about it the wrong way because he televised it but lets be real. Cleveland wasn’t going to be better than they were last year WITH Lebron. They have no other scorers other than Antwan Jamison and no defensive players other than Verajao. Some of the players they’ve added should still be training in D-League.They’ve been playing like crap since Dec. 2nd and the only team they’ve beaten were a Knicks team who had just played Denver, Boston, and Miami in the same week. Cleveland is just mad because the “hometown” kid left home and if any of us played in the NBA and our former boss talked sh*t about us and then lost by 50-60 points we would be somewhere with a sly grin on our faces! I honestly would be shocked if Cleveland won 15 games this year.

  12. DJ3 says:

    I will laugh when the heat win the championship and the cavs get a lottery pick. lol im starting now. TAKE THAT DAN GILBERT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. blah says:

    Karma goes both ways. Hope Lebron will burn in hell forever.

  14. cll232 says:

    LEBRON DOSENT KNO BBALL HE SUCKS AT SHOOTING AND IS A WANNABE WADE. IK HE WENT TO HEAT TO SUCKHIM UP AND STAND IN WADEZ SHADOW LOL. LEBRON IS SCORING ONLY AVG 8 PTS PER GAME W HEAT SO YEAH. CAVS HAV A BETTER RECORD DEN MIAMI LAST YEAR AND THEY WILL DIS YEAR I PROMIS U . EAST CHAMPS FOR SURE GILBERT WAS RIGHT CAVS ARE PLAYIN REAL BBALL NOT FOR THE SPOTLIGHT HOE

  15. BigZ says:

    Don’t you guys see?
    This is Bron trolling the Cavs….and when Bron trolls the Cavs the NBA makes money.
    Everything that has happened this past summer is doing miracles for David Stern’s wallet so he loves this crap.
    Don’t expect it to stop any time soon.

  16. Josh Trumm says:

    LeBron is right though, karma IS a bitch. And he isn’t helping his by making comments like that. He made sure to let everyone know before that he is a member of the Miami Heat, so he should worry about the Heat. Being a jerk may get you headlines, but you’re still being a jerk. What goes around, comes around…

  17. Crissano says:

    I hate it when people call Lebron arrogant and attention seeking and stuff like that. Remember when he was a little pimple faced kid in Ohio? The MEDIA went down there and BLEW him up. Or when the CAVS fans worshiped at his feet and talked crap about Wade, Kobe and every other player who played better than him (well probably just those two). You Cavs fans made him like this! YOU created this monster! So dont trip when the same monster does what you made him to do which is thrive off attention and be a prima donna. Stop trolling these sites and think about all the years of hating on other players when Lebron was your “King” and you’ll know why even though LBJ gets booed nobody REALLY cares about CAVS fans…cus you deserve it.

  18. Lakers Fan says:

    whoa there! as lebron said, ‘it’s not good to wish bad on anybody’ be careful right there fella, you might have some not so good karma with your hate ;D

    • MVP D-Rose says:

      That would be assuming I actually believe in karma, or anything of the sort. Which I don’t. LeBron will keep doing his thing, probably win some championships, and Stern will lose a lot of basketball fans in the process. If he wants the NBA to be reality TV to try and save the ratings, which is what he is doing, then so be it. But to trash on Cleveland fans and blaming them (just as LeBron blames everyone else, who is he gonna blame if they don’t win this year? Oh yeah, his bench, perhaps the coach, maybe Bosh won’t pull his weight, etc etc) for hating on him after he screwed them over, is just ridiculous. Cleveland fans have every right to still be pissed at him. He painted himself into this “villain” corner. It’s the choice he made himself. Instead of being a savior to a city, he chose to be hated by thousands of people. It’s just sad because people aren’t hating on him because he burned their team (like how Cleveland fans hate Jordan because he burned them so many times), but because of his poor decision making, egotistical attitude, lack of grace, and total lack of respect for the thousands who adored him in his old city.

  19. Rich says:

    Cavs with LeBron best record 2 years consecutive. Without LBJ (and delonte who never really played much anyway), worst record in the league. Nuff said, LBJ is the MVP in the league…

  20. RB says:

    The reason the Cavs got their worst loss EVER (yes, in franchise history) handed to them by the Lakers is because they looked like mashed potatoes on the court. NO ENERGY.. Show up to play and maybe you’ll win more than 1 out of your last 21. It’s not all because of LeBron..

  21. jay says:

    people are really obsessed with lebron. kobe is by far more arrogant and unapproachable than lebron. kobe make the most arrogant and egotistical comments ever. jordan didnt win a title his first 7 yrs either. but no one doubted him and he is just as arrogant as kobe and lebron also.

  22. moshe says:

    the miami team is now 30wins 9loses
    by the 10th of march they will be47wins and 17looses
    and then they will play the lakers on the tenth that will be a game to watch

  23. Abdullah says:

    I think everyone (people who say LeBron sucks)should realise LBJ is “something” LAST YEAR 2009-10 CAVS (with lebron) were 61-21 (the MOST wins and LEAST losses)………… now its been 3 months and they are 8-30!! They already lost 9 MORE GAMES than the WHOLE season last year! Heat last year was 47-35 (nothing compared to the 2009-10 Cavs) Now they are 30-9. Theyre only 17 games below theyre total wins from last year, and they got plenty of games. Is it me or does no one ever look at numbers?

  24. 90210 says:

    the only teams that can stop the Heat are Dallas and Boston..

    if the Heat somehow get past the Celtics in the East, i want the 2006 NBA Finals rematch so bad. praying with all my heart :D

  25. mikesold says:

    yeah keep saying that, cause i cant wait to the heat to manslaughter the cavs again and this time for 56 points!

  26. Aldstar says:

    I give LeBron my full support in trashing the Cavs. Those S.O.A.B are so hateful. LeBron left the Cavs the wrong way, but is that so big of a deal that you have to hate on him forever? Nice going LeBron, keep on trashing the Cavs, I luv it. And please everytime you meet them, drop another 40 on them, just to let them know what they let walk away, cause honestly, I always thought LeBron had a solid supporting cast, and you have to admit, on paper, he had. Jamison, Williams, Varejao, Big Z & Shaq. But they al just relied on LeBron and never stood op themselves. LeBron, keep on trashing the Cavs

  27. Abdullah says:

    Oh and to the coaches, I like how they dont give a sh*t when theyre team loses 10 in a row or whatever, and a -55 game. Wtf.

  28. Abdullah says:

    Cavs=30th ranked in Power rankings
    Heat=1st
    Lol do the math

  29. Abdullah says:

    Lol Lebron is so right. Karma is a b**ch. No hate to the players though, they have stayed as confident as always, but to Gilbert, the fans, and the coaches. First of all, I love how everyone was all up on Lebron, now they call him a douchebag, selfish, whatever. You lost to the Heat twice, so quit talking. Im sure Miami will win one before Cavs in these 5 years to come. Obviously Cavs are nothing w/o LBJ, Big Z, Varajeo… lol 55 points. Fans deserve what they get right now, for all they wished for Lebron.

  30. Observer says:

    To the Cavs, you should’ve traded the bum when you had a chance. To Lebron, if you cost me tens of millions of dollars and set my business back ten years all for the whats best for you and your family i would of said worse things my friend. The Cavs gave you max money, money to all your friends, suites, plane tickets, etc. THey made moves to appease you and in the end you gave them a cold shoulder and a garbage 2nd round pick. Answer this, can you really blame Dan Gilbert for being pissed off? absolutely not….

    • Lakers Fan says:

      money ain’t everything my friend. and gilbert didn’t gave lebron all. he didn’t gave lebron what he needed, a good enough sidekick to back him up in the playoffs. Mo wasn’t good enough, Jamison wasn’t good enough, Shaq was also a ‘money move’ on the part of gilbert. so no, gilbert didn’t made moves to appease Lebron, he just wanted Lebron to do it all while he pockets maximum profit.

      and how about this, how about owners ditching their star players once they can get someone younger for half the price? this has happened several times but people like you don’t realize the owners are only after the bottom line! for them it’s all about the money, Lebron’s decision made players realize they can be in charge of their NBA careers, which should really be the case as they’re the ones in the limelight, they’re the ones responsible for all the endorsements, deals and ticket sales. and besides, what gilbert did was way below the accepted level of professionalism expected of people his position.

  31. Anonononon says:

    “for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction”

    I wonder if good ol’ Newton has it correct, guess we’ll see.

  32. farris says:

    No matter what lebron does, he’s gonna be the one wearing the black hate and robes, he’s the evil guy now. So he might as well embrace it and play basketball. People need to understand that hating on lebron only makes him better, he feeds off of hate and drop triple doubles and over 40 points (lakers,cavaliers and blazers) I hope people keep hating that way lebron and bosh can get their first ring

  33. LBJ6PureLove says:

    Gilbert….need some Kleenex???

  34. Dsd519 says:

    Ever since the caves and heat played each other it has been the total opposite. The heat have been 20-1, and the caves have been 1-20. The people in Cleveland and everywhere else should just leave lebron alone. He’s not with Cleveland no more and and pretty much embarrassing the caves when he dropped 38 on them. Y’all should worry bout your team. How ur gonna make ur franchise even better. Even though it might take years and years to accomplish that so good luck. And just leave other players business alone. It’s their life.

  35. Lakers Fan says:

    C’mon y’all Cavs fans stop sulking already! Lebron just made a decision and you went berserk, now Lebron just tweeted something, and you get angry at him for that? Did he specifically mentioned that tweet was for the Cavs? If you know Lebron’s recent history you’ll understand this tweet was solely for Dan Gilbert. Lebron said he has utmost respect for the fans and his former teammates, so this tweet is really just for Gilbert.

    And yeah, Lebron DIDN’T ASKED TO BE TRADED! Unlike that guy in Purple and Gold, and now this guy in Colorado being melodramatic… Y’all hating Lebron for what? Just because it became the ‘in’ thing? If you really are an NBA fan and a fan of basketball you would appreciate what the Miami Heat is all about. Heck we all consider the All-Star weekend as the highlight of the NBA season right? How could you not appreciate being able to watch 82 games of All-Star caliber when the Heat is playing? Isn’t that THE kind of game we’re all excited to see? If you can’t appreciate that then either you’re a hypocrite or not really a fan of NBA basketball at all.

  36. NBAguy says:

    Weren’t you guys the #1 seed last season?? W/O LeBron, aren’t you guys the last seed? Keep on hating LeBron, it’ll only make matters worse for Cleveland, and make matters better for Miami who haas only lost twice since Thanksgiving. Thought So!

  37. Me says:

    This is Lebrons supporting cast huh? Half these players who play either didnt play or wasnt there when Lebron played. His supporting cast from last year has been injured for one time or an another the ENTIRE season. But there is no excuse for their losing….ESPECIALLY like this! This is still an NBA team…I dont care if Jordan left!

  38. ANONYMOUS says:

    GET SOME HEAT! FIST ON THE EAST GIVE IT A COUPLE OF WEEKS AND WE WILL BE THE BEST TEAM IN THE LEAGUE

  39. TJ says:

    Oh please leave LBJ alone. He signed with Miami Heats as free agents not like he demanded to be trade. That’s enough for Cavs fans.

    Cavs is the worst team in the NBA right now and for the rest of the season too.

  40. cos says:

    the cavs was playing like high school. whats the matter with you guys you are suppose to be pros. high school probably would have looked better.

  41. golebron says:

    i think that comment was toward Dan Gilbert, not cavs players

  42. NBA FAN says:

    You all cav fan should stop hating on LBJ, He had the right to go any place he wanted to go, And he as everybody had the right to say whatever he wants and to say it the way he wanted,
    We hate on Players but we never hate on Team Owners when they decide to trade our favorite players to other teams, Lets remember that the NBA is a business, that the owners of NBA Teams don’t care about us the fans they only care about how much money they can put in their pockets
    We don’t really know and probably never will, what was going on behind the scene between LBJ and Dan Stupid Gilbert, He start hating on LBJ cuz he and only he knew how much money he will lose, He never care for the FANS or his PLAYERS, and the proves is right there now when he only cares about hating LBJ,
    His team mates had nothing to do with what happened and prove of that was him talking to all of them on the court when he get back to Cleveland, that’s why i’m sure what he tweets was about DAN and the FANS that hated him

  43. ctownrock says:

    When lebron first left, a little piece of me was excited for the cavs to be the underdog team again. Then they beat the celtics in their home opener, and it gave fans hope. The bashing of lebron stopped, and fans believed in their team. While the cavs may have the worst record in the league right now, I can say that I still watch every game expecting the cavs to win. What makes cleveland fans different from any other sports fans is that games like this rally the fans to their team, i am a bigger cavs fan now than i was yesterday.

    And yes, the cavs fans did say bad things to lebron. But lebron also left his former team in shambles (yes he was important to the cavs team). Someone needs to take the high ground to end this nonsensical backlashing back and forth. I just ask that cleveland fans take the high ground and don’t bash him for this comment.

  48. Law064 says:

    @ Zoe sorry dude the Heat will not be in the finals. I am not a Lebron fan but I liked that what should I do commercial and I can admit that Lebon is a killer on the court but he lack killer instinct no clutch in other words. He got a lot of hate from Clevland and look where they are now. Karma is a bit*h from the top of the East to the Bottom the Cav’s are nothing without him. Someone made a comment that they gave him everything but they didn’t. They never gave him a great supporting cast to compete for a title. Good tweet Lechoke I still say he choke’s in big situations sorry that’s just me to all the Lebron lovers..

    • BosBig3 says:

      He has Wade he’s clutch so that doesn’t matter

    • Lakers Fan says:

      do you know what you’re talking about? didn’t you watch or maybe even seen in the news about Miami’s last game vs Portland? Did you not see nor heard about how Lebron masterfully steered his team to victory in the last 2minutes and during the Overtime? They’re definitely other guys in other teams that choke at crunchtime but definitely not Lebron, not Wade, not even Bosh.

      Now if you the list of NBA’s chokers of all-time I have it… just ask :)

      • Law064 says:

        @LakerFan Lebron went nuts to force OT big deal he didn’t hit a game winner did he? Ohhh yeah sorry he hit 1 game winner that mattered in Clevland but that was luck I say. Dude is not clutch Wade on the other hand is a clutch player Don’t mention Bosh as clutch dude. with the game on the line I’ll pick Wade over Lebron period.

THATS RIGHT #1 EATSTERN CONFRENCE….. KARMA IS A B@%#$ …. YOU GET WHAT YOU ASK FOR … IT IS WAT IZ … FA SHO

  50. Jason says:

    Regardless of where the Cavs are and why they are there, LeBron’s right – people took the hate way too far, and that attitude alone may be the largest hurdle Cleveland has to overcome in order to get the ship back on course. Good luck.

  52. LeBron Hater says:

    Karma is not the reason the Cavs are having a bad season. Unless Karma is Lebron’s new nickname. King Karma? LeKarma James? Not only did he leave Cleveland, but he did so after all the top free agents had been snatched up. I think it’s pretty much agreed that he knew 3 years ago he was going to leave, maybe he could have let the Cavs know too, so that they could have traded him or at least made an offer to Amar’e (Probably the only big-name free agent worth having this summer). If Karma is going to have a role to play in all of this, it will hit LeBron the hardest. But I have to say that whether the Cavs never win another game or the Heat never lose another game, I will still hate LeBron (I used to be a fan of his). This isn’t about basketball anymore.

  53. LenHard23 says:

    karma karma karma.. is the word of the day in cleveland.. the bad karma that dan gilbert gives to lebron on his letter after the decision is been send back by Lebron when is vists the q and defeated single handedly the cavaliers since that game to heat roll of the hook by winning 21 of its last 22 including a 13 straight win on the road and only loss to the mavs by only 2 at home, meanwhile the cavs fate is a complete turn around compare to the heat.. since that game they’ve only won against the heat in ot showing its a huge fluke.. Maybe now this proves that Lebron doesn’t really had a solid support in the cavs these past few years because basically this team w/Lebron last season is on top of the league despite the injuries to shaq and west but now look at the cavs.. wow THEY SHOULD MOVE IN THE D-LEAGUE.. AND I TOTALLY AGREED TO WHAT LEBRON HAS TWITTED..

    Ohio…he left you because Dan Gilbert failed to build a Dinasty…. instead of opening up his wallet and paying whatever over the luxury tax decided to put bumbs around BronBron…dumbass move just like Kevin McHale in Minnesota, had a Goldmine with Kevin Garnett and traded Chauncey, Ray Ray and so many other great players…if anybody wants to hate, Hate Gilbert for being just plain STUPID….at the end of the day it is all about Business and anybody …any redblooded human being would’ve done the same thing Lebron did, try to get better and be better, That is what makes America a Magninficent Nation. Pure Love Lebron…you do what you and they will do what they can do about it…you can hate me now!!!!

  57. rondo says:

    Labron is a loser who will never win a ring. I don’t like Cleveland but the fans deserve to see Labron not win a ring.

  58. Mavs=BWAHAHAHA says:

    Lebron is a spoiled punk ass bitch. I guess he never figured out the way he left Cleveland was in poor taste. Someone should tell him that Cleveland fans are not mad at him for leaving but the way he rubbed it with his “Decision”. But it is clear he thinks he is never wrong. Go f@%k yourself lebron, your an idiot.

  61. HEAT IS ROLLIN says:

    i love the miami heat big 3…. yah!!!!!!! 2011 miami heat champs….

  62. Lebron will always be an MVP and Kobe will grow fast. He will have his last run for the championship but I doubt it because Miami Heat will rule this league.

  63. […] This post was mentioned on Twitter by Griffen Giordano and Vegas Basketball. Vegas Basketball said: No Mercy From LeBron: [nba-video vid=/games/lakers/2011/01/11/0021000560_cle_lal_recap.nba] HANG TIME HEADQ… http://on.nba.com/ftpmQr […]

  64. queen james says:

    Queen James trying to create something coz all the attention is with Melo… I guess he’s in the wrong business, should have been in holywood instead if he wants attention

  65. BosBig3 says:

    I have to say I am very dissappointed with the Cavs. Lebron James should be a lock for the MVP sorry to the othr players but Lebron is rare. To take that team and win 60+ games two seasons in a row is unbelieveable. I know everyone hates him but come on dude is the best he make below average talent look like the best. There is no way he doesn’t win aleast one ring with the Heat. Also I think that Lebron has earn the right to say what he wants to the Cavs I have no problem with it until they do right by him they will always be a bad team. Also need to worry less about what Lebron Tweets and more about finding some heart that is a disgrace.

  66. Zoe says:

    Boston sux! Haha!

  67. LeBronOwnsUKobe says:

    Just shows why LBJ is the MVP of the league

  68. Hamid Z says:

    LEBRON JAMES ALL DAY EVERYDAY F DAN GILBERT!!! to all those talking about rings he will get one soon enough until than y’all keep hating Lebron James taking over baby!!! Miami Heat 2010-2011 Champs!!!

  69. jarvis says:

    That just shows you how great James is.the cavs knew James was an atomic bomb going to war with a bunch of fire crackers on his team.to go to miami,play with 2 dominant stars and still be in the top 3 in mvp .he’s just a unbelievable talent.the best player in the nba hands down.

  70. Dalzo da Bomb says:

    So mush for LBJ staying loyal like when he said i want to win a championship in Ohio. But if u had a chance to go to the possiby the best roster ever would u accept
    PS:LBJ’s a FLOPPERRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  71. Spliftout says:

    GOOD POINT SOMETHING SEEMED FUNKY ABOUT THAT TO ME TOO…

  72. cool boy says:

    yeah! LeBron for MVP! go heat! beat L.A!

  73. Andre says:

    Lebron is bigger than the Cavs. It’s very rare to found this situation in sports. Kobe is way smaller than the Lakers. Russel was way smaller than the Celtics organization is.

    It’s very hard to stay in an organization that is smaller than you.

    • j-wizz says:

      Kobe and Russell are smaller than their respective organisations, but what they did for those organisations meant that organisations and its fans respected them and as long as that respect was a two-way thing, the organisation would do anything to accommodate them

  74. DeuceTrey says:

    LEBRON = MVP……PERIOD!

  75. Spliftout says:

    TOO BAD THE LAKERS DIDN’T DO THAT TO MIAMI THEN THIS WOULD BE NEWS… THE CAVS ARE A TOTALLY DIFFERENT TEAM THAN LAST YR THERE ARE A COUPLE GUYS THAT ARE NEW THAT WEREN’T THEIR LAST YR AND A NEW COACH SO ITS NOT QUITE CORRECT TO SAY ITS THE SAME TEAM HE PLAYED WITH… AND WHO IS TO SAY HE WASN’T TWEETING ABOUT AN EX GIRL FOR EXAMPLE… I HAVE TO ADMIT AS MUCH AS I WANT TO HATE ON LBJ HE IS AN AWESOME TALENT BUT THERE ARE A BUNCH OF THOSE IN THE LEAGUE… YOU HAVE D-LEAGUERS THAT CAN JUMP OUTTA THE BUILDING I MEAN THERE ARE ALOT OF EXCELLENT ATHLETES OUT THERE NOWADAYS…. I ALSO FEEL THE CAVS WILL GET ANOTHER SUPERSTAR IN THIS YRS DRAFT AND THAT BYRON WILL TURN THEM INTO A CONTENDER IF HE DOESN’T GET FIRED FIRST… GO LAKERS

  76. Dodong says:

    The Miami Heat will never be a champions of nba if Kobe still playing with the lakers!!! go lakers!!!

  77. theblackmamba'sno.1fan says:

    let’s not forget… THE LAKERS DID THIS TRASHING… NOT THE HEAT! THE DEFENDING CHAMPIONS ARE AWAKE NOW… NOW YOU BETTER GET READY LEBRON

    • iggybiggy says:

      Lets not forget that Lebron did not play in the fourth quarter, He could of played like how kobe played here in the fourth , but there was no point.

  78. asdf says:

    that tweet had nothing to do with Cleveland, the TEAM. That was JUST FOR DAN GILBERT. Which he deserved.

    Cleveland fans love Dan Gilbert for cursing lebron and everything but when Lebron tweets “Karma is a b****.” He is the bad guy.

    You’re hypocrites. You hate on lebron because its pretty much main-stream now. Loooosers

    • Eastwood says:

      Then he should have called Dan (or sent him an e-mail). Why the need to post it publicly? And, now, he’ll probably issue an apology of some sorts to somebody for this. Could’ve avoided that beforehand.

  79. KD35 says:

    @Adam: Well how bout jamison? YES! mo williams? YES! anthony parker? YES! varejao? YES! anthony parker? YES! jamario moon? YES! jj hickson? YES! boobie gibson?YES! most of these players were playing big minutes WITH lebron last year! so yeah, its pretty much the same team. just goes to show how great lebron is and how much of a douche you are.. please leave smart comments or dont comment at all coz ur just wasting ur time..

  80. CelticsAllDay says:

    cavs only won with lebron. the lose him and they cant get past 10 wins and its already about to be allstar break. lebron went for business purposes and his desire to win a ring. he knew he couldnt do it by himself so he just went to go get some help in wade and bosh…oh and dont forget that the heat bench is actually a dependable bench for the most part. its not lebron’s fault that he’s that good to where ppl argue to keep him. if you cant get over lebron leaving, it goes to show how bad you are at leaving behind the past and thinking about the future

  81. cool boy says:

    No LeBron = No Cavs
    They rely on LeBron only, please open your eyes cavs!

  82. jun coronejo says:

    well, the last words that came from lebron himself after his former team(cavs) got beaten by the lakers in grand fashion at the staples ctr just shows that cavs are a team on rebuilding mode aftre lebron left them at the start of the season. going back to lebrons comments it would have been better if he just shut up and never gave any negative below the belt comments on his former team. everybody knows what the cavs are going thru right now…literally and figuratively and it doesnt help for him to add insult to injury being a former cav himself(he was with them for 7 yrs) and being an ohio native as well.the comments of cavs owner about him being a quitter is not nice but did you see how lebron played game 4,5&6 of the celtics/cavs series last season? well.going back to the negative comments he made against his former team( a comment w/c he would have just kept to himself) …..thats just shows what kind of player lebron is, a player who is below par from being a role model. thats what you get for not going to college, not getting your degree and not being raised up in good way. you’re a brat lebron. good thing you changed your jersey to #6 form #23 because its a total disgrace to that jersey #. your heat might win a title but i doubt if your team will dominate because you’re not just a class act…ohio project boy…

    • j-wizz says:

      couldn’t have put it better myself. you notice the level of intelligence in players from those that went to college and those that didn’t with kobe as an exception due to him spending his childhood playing with adults and in italy.

      the heat may not win a title, they want results fast and 50-60 win season doesnt guarantee that, evidently.

  83. haha says:

    Same with LeChoke. You guys are about as intelligent and respectable as the Cleveland fans

  84. Jake says:

    lol its funny how all a few comments bring up the fact that Lebron doesn’t have a ring at this rate the cavs never will….Smh haters

  85. haha says:

    And “LeBrick” is possibly the least insulting, least clever nickname I’ve ever heard

  86. chicago97 says:

    I REALLY FEEL BAD 4 CAVS FANS… I USE TO LIKE LEBRON, NOT ANYMORE, HE REALLY CHANGED HIS PERSONALITY THE LAST 2YRS, N ITS SUX AS FAN THAT WE WILL NEVER SEE THE GOOD GAMES AGNIST LEBRON N DWADE LIKE WE USE TO THE BATTLES THEY USE TO HAVE, SUX FOR THE NBA, NOT A HATER JUST DIDNT LIKE THE WAY HE LEFT N STILL HASNT APOLOGIZED??? CRAZY, IF ALL THE GREATS SAY YU DID IT THE WRONG WAY, ITS CUZ YU DID IT THE WRONG WAY, JUST ADMIT IT, N SAY SRRY, YU HAVE WHAT YU WANT.. IDK JUST THINK HE WILL NEVER BE THE LEBRON HE USE TO BE.

    • iggybiggy says:

      Im So sorry for leaving you piece of crap team. Im Sorry Dan Gilbert , your the best owner ever that couldnt help but put the best players around me. Im so Sorry for leaving the best city in the country, Im so Sorry Waaaaaaaaaaa……

  87. haha says:

    Wow, the Cleveland didn’t deserve that? They showed the utmost sportsmanship when he announced his decision to leave. I actually think LeBron has been pretty civil in comparison to what he has the right to say after the way they immaturely turned on him

  88. TNT says:

    Wow, he really is a child. That really isn’t necessary, and with each tweet this man-child sounds more and more ignorant. From his claims that race factored into the backlash of the decision, to saying he wanted to bring a title to CLE and then bouncing, to not understanding what the term “contraction” meant, and now this. Yes, LeBron God does see everything, but it was the owner that hated, not your former teamates. At least you still have Rick Kamla and Sekou to tell everyone your great, because the rest of us are just not buying it anymore.

  89. Zoe says:

    That’s right keep on calling LeBron names & he’ll destroy your teams, your homecourts, your hopes & dreams! Haha! Finals = Lakers vs Heat

  90. Bianca says:

    Sometimes i cant stand the media. Twitter is filled with random updates. How do we even know he was talking about the Cavs in the first place. Get off LEbron nuts! If yall wanted to talk about someone it shouldve been Chris Paul when he clearly tweeted ” Cavs are yall forreal”

    • thetruthhurts says:

      PEOPLE CAN LEBRON MAKE A COMMENT WITH OUT ALL THESE HATERS TRIPPIN, GOSH CHILL OUT.

      @GEX CAVS sell out arena, so does the heat the difference is that miami’s heat tickets are going extremely high, and comon it’s miami there is like a million things to do any given night, cleaveland is so boring that going to the game might be the funnest thing to do, so the only funny thing i see is how ignorant you are

      @cottonman chill out bro, the only thing happening is another game, thats it, yall make it sound like this is everything in life and lebron is arrogant now, but when he was with the cavs i bet you thought he was pretty cool… hypocrites

      i know the feeling, the heat was the worst team on the league just 2 years after winning the cahmpionship, now is back on the top, but this is sports, i kept supporting, i didnt hate on shaq or the SUNS the team he went to…. so stop the hating and support your team, then maybe karma wont be getting the best of yall with that negative vibe…

      GGGGGOOOOOO HHHHHEEEAAAATTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • HEAT305 says:

        thts wass up man.. lol that GEX CAVS is a dumb a$$… like NOAH SAID from the Bulls who goes to vacation to cleveland … MIAMI heat all day

  91. Cottonman says:

    Lebron needs to keep his mouth shut. He is an arrogant SOB. The Cavs players don’t deserve this and it is unfortunate that this is taking place.

    I will be interested to see Miami play in Cleveland again on March 29th. Although it is 10 weeks away I wonder what may happen during that game.

    • Anbgela says:

      It wont be interesting Lebron and the Heat will demolish the Cavs just like theve done previously! THE CAVS ARE PATHETIC WITHOUT LBJ!!

    • mikesold says:

      no doubt miami will slaughter cavs AGAIN! i just wonder if it”ll be 56 or more!

  92. Gex says:

    Funny, how the Cavs still manage to sell out crouds and Heat don’t even get a sell out, weird isn’t :/

    Laughing at your former team, that’s one way to show sportsmanship… A team that supported you for 7 long seasons, as well as the fans, to disappoint them in the playoffs… Hope you shoke again and ride shotgun to Wade ;)

  93. CelticsFan says:

    LeBron should be the MVP just for this. With him the cavs are an elite team and a contender and have the best record in the league, without him they are the worst team in the league. It just shows LeBron’s greatness and how the past 7 years it wasn’t the Cleveland Cavaliers, it was the Cleveland LeBron James.

    • Andre says:

      Looking how bad the team is without Lebron, they should give him retroactive MVP trophies for the past 5 seasons at least.

      They destroyed the former champion Detroit with one guy and the worst NBA team alongside.

  94. The Big Man says:

    Lebron is so cocky. He can talk bad all he wants about the Cavs but there is one thing that will remain the same: He has yet to win a ring.

    • EL says:

      Charles Barkley doesn’t have a ring and he is in the Hall of Fame. Too much to do about nothing. Darko has a ring from the Pistons but he did nothing to earn it. A ring is merely a symbol that a team won everything for one season. It says nothing about individual players on that team. It also says nothing about the coach; take for example Pat Riley’s ugly gaudy ring. Riley stole his “coaching” ring from Stan Van Gundy. Riley would have gotten a ring as GM, but he didn’t EARN it! LeBron James had the right to leave Cleveland. I just don’t like Miami and it’s selfish leader.

    • Andre says:

      Yes. Horry is the best player from past generation. He’s like Jordan. Genius!

    • NBAguy says:

      All I know is when LeBron was on the cavs, they were the #1 seed in the East, and without LeBron they are the last seed in the East! Look at how much they dropped! And now the Heat are the #1 seed in the East. Get wrecked Cleveland! Keep on hating LeBron and before you know it, The Heat will be the ones who blow you to 8-49 in the season adding to a 29 gaming losing streak by 3/12/11.

  95. tre' says:

    Lol@ LeBron trying to talk about God. He’s a member of the Illuminati for Christ’s sake. Nice try, LeBrick.

  96. Conrad says:

    That’s cavs without lebron, Big Z, Varejao, Gibson and Powe. Lol

  97. DMZ says:

    How about your former teammates LeBron? Guys who you went to war with? They deserved all that bad karma too?

    • team mac says:

      dumbass

    • Angela says:

      The teamates are the only ones that dont derserve the bad karma! But the fans were just as bad as the owner Dan Gilbert praising Lebron to the heavens when he was there and then dogging him whe HE decided to do what HE wanted to with his career!

      THE FANS AND THE OWNER ARE GETTING EXACTLY WHAT THEY DESERVE!! ENJOY THE SEASON!!

      • steven says:

        preach it please people dont understand

      • mikesold says:

        yeah! hahaha

      • Eastwood says:

        Lebron needs to be bigger than this. I realize he’s still hurting from all the hate and darts he received back when he made the decision–and to this day–but for him to tweet that is so unnecessary, and his PR team need to do something to make sure stuff like this doesn’t happen. Unless, of course, Lebron is too above-it-all to care anymore.

  98. augy says:

    Damn! thats very unfortunate. the cavs need to get back to the drawing board. Lebron is right though, dont wish bad on others.

  99. anonymous says:

    It’s okay LeBron,
    we can lose by 55.
    But you will always be the most arrogant douchebag to play basketball.
    Talk about trying to be professional..

    • Andre says:

      No. It’s Kobe. Unless you have something personal against Lebron, it’s still Kobe.

      • BosBig3 says:

        I like That

      • lakersfanforever says:

        Kobe can be what ever you want he got 5 rings King less James 0, If James ends up getting one is not going to be because of him, is because of Wade, LIKE IT OR NOT JAMES FANS.

      • Eastwood says:

        Not at all. It’s most certainly Lebron (most arrogant). Kobe does have a bit of it, but he’s never tried to block it from view as did Lebron. Lebron’s is showing brightly for all to see now, and for some, it’s still a shock to the system. But once that shock wears off, most will agree that Lebron is tons more arrogant than Kobe. (I must admit, I have always been a Kobe fan, and will be to the end, so of course, take all this with a grain of salt…but it’s truth I speak [yes, a touch of arrogance]).

    • Andres says:

      yeahhh it’s definitely kobe

    • NBAguy says:

      How is he being arrogant???!!! He is stating the truth! All of us former Cleveland fans are too obsessed with LeBron’s decision! He had a point when he said Karma is a b****. I agree with LeBron on that one, but that necessarily doesn’t mean I like LeBron.

      • Leo says:

        Lol you guys sound dumb we all know Lebron is the best but what the point on arguing over someone else career pointless specially when you dnt know what you talking about

    • mikesold says:

      the problem is you people cant move on and cant understand that NBA is a business

  100. Jed says:

    f lebron, just don’t come home for the holidays. OHIO. Lebron =666

  101. Raphael Hernandez says:

    I agree on Lebron on this one. Cavs owner deserves what he’s getting. No matter how Lebron announced his transfer, owners should not broadcast negative comments on their players, they should show professionalism at all times. Look who’s talking now!

    • GP says:

      im really tired of everybody downing all cleveland fans. we all did not dog Lebron when he left. For us who supported him while all of you werent on the LBJ band wagon, this is just getting old and most of us are over it. So just SHUT UP. PLEASE! If u r not from Cle u dont know what we are going thru so say what u want…

      ITS COOL CLEVELAND!!! KEEP YOUR HEADS UP!! FORGET THESE HATERS ABOVE AND BELOW MY POST!! I LOVE CLEVELAND!!! GO CAVS!

      P.S. As For LBJs Twitter comment….. U DONT HAVE A RING YET AND ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN DURING THE SEASON ITS NOT OVER YET! DONT BE SO COCKY WHEN U GET A RING YOU CAN OFFICIALLY SAY WHAT U WANT UNTIL THEN……..

      • Sujevan says:

        When Dan Gilbert could go off and write a letter proclaiming these cavs that lost by 50+ points to win an NBA title before Lebron James, I think Lebron can say whatever he wants

      • chris says:

        couldnt agree more Sujevan

      • Rafael says:

        Lebron doesnt need a ring to be the best player cs he is the best player in the nba. Look what happen to the heat wow know they are #1 in the east before it was cleveland why that happend because of lebron no hate on chriss bosh or wade bot if they would not have lebronjames on there roster theyll probebly be the 4 best team in nba the heat im talkin about … im not sayin that wade is a bad player or chriss they are the best,,, wade is the best scorer in league an bosh 1 of the best PF of the league, lebron n wade together with chriss that the team wi talking about,, what would boston do nest time to stop this 3 player cause i know that wade is going to play better than what he play last time next heat and celtics game should be more interestin cus know they know how to play together im tlking about the heat

      • Brother Pope says:

        LeBron doesn’t have a ring because the Calvalier owners played the Cleveland fans as chumps. They never signed any real players.
        Look at what the Laker owner did when Koby complained about his personel. The owners of all of the Cleveland sport teams see Cleveland fans as chumps so they don’t feel the need to sign good players, when they can sign cheap garbage and the Cleveland fans will buy into it every time.

        LeBaron put up with this crap for seven years and the fans have the nerve to hate him. He should have left three years earlier.

      • mikesold says:

        we dont hate you man, we hate dan gilbert!

  102. Onajide says:

    The injuries don’t help one bit, but the Cavs roster lacks a dynamic player who can do something. I think Coach Scott is learning about about coaching with all the adversity they’re having this year. I am, and have been, a Heat fan for many years, but I’m not going to dump on the Cavs like many commenters do because the players had no control over this mess. That was management, or former management.

    • Hoops Hoops says:

      Great thought! I do not think any Heat fan wished pain for the Cavs…not like this – but the fans and Dan Gilbert – that is another story all together…..they brought this on themselves……..they embarassed their team….when LeBron left – they did not embrace the Cavs….they focused on the HATE for LeBron….and that is ALL THEY CARED ABOUT….the 1st game against the Heat…they were all there to see LeBron and hate on him – they did not support the team….the fans and Dan Gilbert have made this team so self-concious of their lack of LeBron that they can not even play street ball…..No hate to the Cavs from ANY NBA FAN – but to the CAV FANS and Gilbert – you got what you deserved!

  103. OMG says:

    mmm. Sad Cavs, and the fans disgust me, first praying for LeBron to stay, then insulting him for not staying, obviously the Cavs were not a good team before LeBron and all that he was doing was pulling them up all the time, he did that, but he couldn’t do it alone. No surprise – he got tired, and left. All the haters try to say something to this – Cavs with LB = best in the NBA (record wise) ; Cavs without LB = the worst team.
    Prime example of LeBrons greatness.

  104. JC says:

    Absolutely, Karma is a b**** … keep on hating on Lebron and he will drop 40 points on your team as well, just ask the Blazers

  105. Lulu says:

    Cavs status right now proves how good the surrounding cast is/was for LeBron. Cavs is nothing without James

    • Adam says:

      Man am i sick and tired of people writing that, THIS TEAM IS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT TO LAST SEASONS!!! Answer these questions, Was Byron Scott the coach when LeBron was their? NO! Was Sessions on the roster when LeBron was their? No! Hollins? No! Gee? No! Harris? No! Eyenga? No! Graham? No! Samuels? No!
      7 new players (who all play solid minutes) + a new coach for the Cavs this season! …BUT YEAH THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT LEBRON WAS WORKING WITH LAST SEASON, WASNT IT? Douche.

      • team mac says:

        ur dumb

      • JNT says:

        For most of the season the team was still the same one he had now because of injuries most are not playing but they still have the worst record in the league now and the way they play is a disgrace there is no reason to play with no heart at all.

      • Sujevan says:

        Was Lebron working with talent greater than wht the cavs have now. They key players, Mo, Jamison, Boobie, they’re all still here. This team isn’t a complete drop of the supporting cast he had last year. This is as close as your gonna get to the supporting cast LBJ had

      • KD35 says:

        @Adam: Well how bout jamison? YES! mo williams? YES! anthony parker? YES! varejao? YES! anthony parker? YES! jamario moon? YES! jj hickson? YES! boobie gibson?YES! most of these players were playing big minutes WITH lebron last year! so yeah, its pretty much the same team. just goes to show how great lebron is and how much of a douche you are.. please leave smart comments or dont comment at all coz ur just wasting ur time..

      • Sam says:

        Omg KD35, i love ya man, i hope ya take out the MVP!!! But just 2 point out sumthin ya said the only players on the Cavs roster now that played heaps of minutes with LeBron were Mo, Jamison, Varejao and Parker. Moon played like 10 mins a game (if that), Gibson didnt feature once in the play-offs (coz Delonte was back-up PG), & Hickson didnt play once Shaq returned from injury and when Jamison got traded 2 the Cavs (as well as when Big Z re-signed mid-season). So i can c your point of view, as well as Adam’s but i think Byron Scott will play the rookies (Eyenga, Harris and so on) more and more now, so expect 2 c the Cavs get blown out a few more times this season! Peace :)

      • chris says:

        @adam ur dumb. none of these players played last season but they all stink exept for 1 or 2. cleveland lost 3 players last season and they got biron scott who is better than mike brown. those 3 players were a 38yr old shaq, big z, and lebron 2 of those 3 players can barely get double doubles now so those players they got are upgrades over shaq and big z

      • skimp says:

        haha foreal tho u gotta be delutional, or jus in denial cause the facts dont baq up wat u sayin they out there NOW jus like they was when LBJ was runnin the show get ya mind right yo

      • KD35 says:

        @Sam: I get ur point but wat i sed was MOST of these players were playing big minutes with lebron. even tho jamario, jj and boobie didnt play that much, atleast they were part of the rotation at some parts of the season.Even if Shaq, big Z and delonte returned to the cavs this year, i really dont think it would make a lot of difference. they’d still lose a ton of games. But i give props to byron scott for giving the young guys minutes. atleast he’s moving forward, unlike the fans and Dan Gilbert. No hate and disrespect to the cavs players but to the cavs fans and owner, this is wat u deserve. and BTW, thanks and keep supporting the thunder LOL!

      • Samuel says:

        to be fair, the core of the Cavaliers Roster survives, Varegao was injured for the blow out, but him and the other players (Williams, Gibson, Jamison etc) were given so much credit for helping LeBron win games and were the reasons he was slammed for not winning a championship, Those players haven’t been able to win at all of late, even their victory over the knicks was against a team completely out of form. If these core guys can’t force a win alone, how can they be called tools to help win a ring?

      • mikesold says:

        hey dan gilbert in disguise, the problem with your team is you cant move on. NBA is a business

    • iggybiggy says:

      They did have starters playing, Mo “allstar” Williams ( supposedly Lebrons number 2 guy ), Jamison, and Hickson. Theses starters all sucked!! Besides Anderson V. all those that are injured are bench players… Boobie Gibson is not a fricken starter he has always sucked. The proof is here without Lebron the cavs suck. Shame on Dan Gilbert ,shame on him for spreading wrongfull hate!
      P.S. Retards…
      They didnt have these injuries when they lost 10 in a row earlier
