What do you do when you've burned an entire city on national television by announcing that you're "taking your talents to South Beach?" Well if you're Lebron James, you keep rubbing salt in the wounds through your Twitter account.
James' latest Tweet revealed just how much he longs to see his old team play the Wizards on Sunday by saying, "I think that should be a nationally televised game right there, honestly. Something has to give in that game."
What he's is referring to is the fact that the Cavaliers are currently mired in a 25-game losing streak in the absence of King James, while the Wizards are an equally bad 0-25 on the road this season. And despite actually being a favorite in tonight's game against the Detroit Pistons, it looks like the sanctity of Sunday's game will be preserved since the Cavs are currently getting clobbered 41-26. Of course, the "big game" between the Cavs and Wizards will also be in jeopardy when Cleveland plays the Clippers (3-18 road record) this week too.
Anyways, getting back to the LeBron matter, it's pretty obvious he's smirking behind his Twitter message, and reveling in the fact that the team/city whose heart he broke is lost without number 6. Unfortunately, Cleveland can't exactly say the same thing about James as the Miami Heat are currently riding a seven-game winning streak, and poised to take over first in the Eastern Conference (they're 38-14 and a half game behind the Celtics).
Want further reason why LeBron's jealous ex is still fuming over his departure? James hasn't missed a beat statistically - even while sharing the ball with Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh. James is averaging 26.4 PPG, 7.3 REB/G, 7.3 AST/G, 1.54 STL/G.
When you add up the statistical success, team success and MVP talk, Cleveland definitely has a lot to be bitter about this season. When you add up the fact that Cleveland has a roster mostly void of young talent, and full of journeyman role players, expect the Cavs to be bitter for a long time.
