LeBron James calls Cleveland 55-point loss “karma”


It was a historic, epic loss by the Cleveland Cavaliers Tuesday night. They didn’t just lose to the Lakers, they were an embarrassment. James Naismith was rolling over in his grave. The final score, 112-57, had people shaking their heads.

Except for LeBron James, who tweeted this late Tuesday night:

Crazy. Karma is a b****.. Gets you every time. Its not good to wish bad on anybody. God sees everything!


Not exactly taking the high road there.

We’ll let LeBron’s thought’s stand with just one little thought: He’s right that Karma is a b****, but I’m not sure he really understands how Karma works if he’s rubbing salt in the Cavaliers’ wounds. That comment is going to come boomeranging back someday.

Naismith original rules of basketball sell for $4.3 million

James Naismith needed a new indoor game for the children under his charge at a Massachusetts YMCA. He came up with a sport where a ball had to be thrown into peach baskets suspended 10 feet in the air.

For the sport, he came up with just 13 rules. No, one of them was not “LeBron James gets to take one extra step more than other players.”

Sotheby’s auctioned off the original typed up (by his secretary) 13 rules for $4.3 million on Friday, the Associated Press reports. It was purchased by David and Suzanne Booth, who intend to bring them to the University of Kansas — where Naismith went on to be a basketball coach.

We told you before they were for sale, and Ian Naismith told the AP the money was going to the Naismith Charity.
