Perhaps it is shallow to find happiness in the misfortunes of others. Well, then - guilty as charged. What do you want from me? I'm a vindictive S.O.B.
Ever since "The King" tweeted, retweeted, passed on a tweet, or didn't tweet, that so-called "karma" is swirling around the Miami Heat, as if it was Lost's Smoke Monster looking to claim it's next victim. The night after "The Tweet", King Karma twisted his ankle and has not played since. And apparently neither have the Heat, losing three straight, including a 28 point drubbing by the Denver Nuggets and a loss to the lowly L.A. Clippers. See world - the Cavs aren't the only ones who are A LOT worse without the guy. To make matters worse... or better if you're like me... Chris "The Ultimate Sidekick" Bosh hurt his ankle during the Heat's latest loss and then, according to ESPN's Brian Windhorst, cried about it later, saying:
"C'mon, that is how guys get hurt, that is how serious injuries happen. You've got to watch people's legs. I know guys want to hustle and everything but we all want to play and provide for our families and have a job.We all want to be healthy and that is very important If it is by somebody's leg, don't dive for the ball, it's too close."Jeez... would someone please give lil' Chrissy his bottle already. What a baby.
The so-called King, like he has countless times, blamed someone else and didn't own up to "The Tweet", saying someone else sent it to him, coming up with this gem when speaking with Windhorst:
"It's just how I was feeling at the time," James said to Brian Windhorst of ESPN.com. "It wasn't even a comment from me, it was someone who sent it to me and I sent it out. It wasn't toward that team. It definitely wasn't a good showing by that team last night, I know they wish they would've played better."HUH!? It was how he was feeling at the time, but it wasn't his comment?
Okay, so does he understand that, regardless, HE then passed the tweet on? Even had he officially "retweeted" the karma blast, would it not still mean he chose to send it out through his account? By the way... to all future or current megastars - you might want to know how to use Twitter if you're going to have a gazillion followers. Apparently, "King James" has yet to learn about the official Twitter retweet procedures (RT).
Both The King's and The Bosh's ankle injuries are not too serious. They'll be back and I'm sure Miami will be clicking on all cylinders before we can say "Go Celtics". But maybe... just maybe... Karma is sending a little warning message.
