Thursday (LeBron James and karma) edition: Wha' Happened?

We're not sure if you believe in karma, but plenty of people -- apparently including LeBron James -- do indeed. As someone who thinks the concept has at least some merit, we are glad that James is now witness to the full scope of it.

Part I: James dumps the Cavaliers for the Heat this offseason, and Cavs owner Dan Gilbert responds with a letter to fans ripping LeBron.

Part II: The Cavs, who have struggled this season without LeBron (no kidding!), get royally blown out by the Lakers on Tuesday night. LeBron takes to Twitter with this message: Crazy. Karma is a [redacted]. Gets you every time. Its not good to wish bad on anybody. God sees everything!

Part III: Sensing that he has caused a stir, LeBron attempts an odd backpedal before Wednesday's game vs. the Clippers, saying this: "It was just how I was feeling at the time. It wasn't even a comment from me. It was someone who sent it to me and I sent it out." That's a rare rationalization mixed with passing the buck. If he could have mixed in one more element like blaming the media, it would have been a triple-double.

Part IV: LeBron hurt his ankle in the game against the Clippers, and the Heat lost.

We eagerly await a tweet from Gilbert or someone else with the Cavs about karma and LeBron's injury so we can start this whole process over again.
