LeBron James' most memorable tweets

By Tom Haberstroh

Unless you've been living under a rock without wifi, you know LeBron James caused quite a stir with his tweet last night from his @kingjames Twitter account:

Crazy. Karma is a b****.. Gets you every time. Its not good to wish bad on anybody. God sees everything!Wed Jan 12 12:29 am via ÜberTwitter




The tweet was published after the Los Angeles Lakers pummeled the Cleveland Cavaliers, James' former team, by 55 points on Tuesday night. The barb was seemingly directed at Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert who, in his controversial open letter posted on the team's website, wrote that James would carry "bad karma" to Miami after he decided to sign with the Heat.

James' Twitter timeline has created fodder for numerous sports blogs, news agencies and water coolers around the world.

But was last night's tweet  James' most memorable?

Here are ten others that caught people's attention:

"Mental Notes"
About one month after "The Decision," James told the world he was keeping track of the critics:

Don't think for one min that I haven't been taking mental notes of everyone taking shots at me this summer. And I mean everyone!Tue Aug 10 23:45:49 via UberTwitter



"Greatness"
Sometimes James uses the 140-character platform to clarify words he says on national television. In the following instance, he expanded on his "continue the greatness for myself" quote he muttered after the Cleveland game in an interview with Craig Sager:

Did a post game interview with Craig Sager and I mentioned "Greatness" and I didn't mean my self individually, I ... http://tmi.me/3M24PFri Dec 03 06:23:55 via ÜberTwitter

Blake Griffin's "crazy bounce"
Here's glowing scouting report on Blake Griffin, his opponent on Wednesday night:

Clearing up "Get over it."
Leading up to his return to Cleveland, James took to Twitter and clarified some comments he made about Cleveland fans moving on from his departure:

Let's clear this up! I never said to the Cavs fans to "get over it". I've never and will never say anything bad about them. 7 years of joy!Fri Oct 22 03:54:11 via Echofon



Cowboys angst
James reflects after a Cowboys 38-point loss to the Packers to move to 1-7. The Cowboys proceeded to win five of their next eight games:

Never thought I'd say this about my Cowboys but they are officially the worst team in the NFL right now even though the Bills are winless!Mon Nov 08 03:49:46 via web



Nominating Michael Vick for POTUS
During the Philadelphia Eagles' 59-28 drubbing of the Washington Redskins, James campaigns for his friend and NFL star, Michael Vick, who served 21 months in prison for his involvement in illegal dog fighting rings:

Mike Vick for PRESIDENT!!Tue Nov 16 02:22:50 via web



Admiring the photo of him and D-Wade
James thought highly of this photo taken of Dwyane Wade and himself during their 10-point road win over the Milwaukee Bucks on January 4th:

By far one of the best sports pics I've seen taken!! http://twitpic.com/3dyla0Wed Jan 05 01:24:45 via Echofon



An outlaw's open arms
Over the summer, James likened the Heat to the notorious American gangster and bank-robber of the 1930s.

Congrats to Eddie House. Welcome to Team "John Dillinger". Happy to have uThu Jul 29 23:47:44 via UberTwitter
