Earlier this week, LeBron James informed the world that he’d officially joined the dark side. He’s now content to be a villain in the sports world, no longer in need of the public’s adoration.

He wasn’t kidding, friends.

Last night, as the Cleveland Cavaliers were in the midst of a humiliating 55-point loss to the Lakers, James took great pleasure in his former team’s misery.

According to LeBron (via his Twitter feed), God hates the Cavs, more or less.

Here’s the quote in full, which materialized late during the fourth quarter of the game:

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

Now, whether or not God has more important matters than the fate of Cleveland’s terrible basketball team to keep him (her?) occupied is up for debate, but the strangely bitter LBJ is seemingly convinced this was the work of a higher power.

LeBron James clearly no longer cares about what any of us think; he’s going to say — and tweet — what’s on his mind.

It’s frankly refreshing to see such a high-profile athlete reveal his emotions and opinions so nakedly, no matter how clumsily he goes about doing so.
