LeBron James references karma in Twitter post during Cavs' lopsided loss to Lakers

Lebron_400 They had it coming. That's basically what LeBron James seemed to be saying on Twitter about his former team's 55-point loss to the Lakers on Tuesday night.

While the Cleveland Cavaliers were getting trounced 112-57 at Staples Center, James tweeted: "Crazy. Karma is a ... . Gets you every time. Its not good to wish bad on anybody. God sees everything!"

He seemed to be saying the Cleveland Cavaliers deserved the humiliating loss because of the way James was treated after he took his talents from Cleveland to the Miami Heat in July.

Notable was James' apparent reference to Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert's letter to Cleveland fans that questioned James' character and mentioned "bad karma."

It was the most lopsided loss ever for the Cavaliers, who have lost 11 straight and 21 of their last 22 games. Meanwhile, the Heat has recovered from a 9-8 start to win 21 of its last 22 games.
