Why wouldn't karma rather him never hit another shot and run Miami into the ground? Or have Wade and Bosh leave to go to Cleveland and then win a championship there?
You're making it more complex than would be necessary. If LeBron suffered a career-ending injury, he would "never hit another shot" as a result of that happening. We don't know what Wade and Bosh would do, but they're not necessary for "karma" to bite LeBron in the *** either.
Why would karma prefer to physically hurt people who haven't physically hurt someone else?
Two points: First, I don't think "karma" exists, but if it did, I don't know that it would be confined to returning exactly what was given out in the same exact manner. Second, even if that were the case, I've seen LeBron hit people pretty hard on the court. I'm sure he's caused some injuries somewhere along the way, even if we didn't hear much about it.
Even though you say you don't wish injury on Lebron, the absurdity of your analysis certainly leads people to less absurd leaps.
No. The analysis is fine. You can disagree with you want, but it's not absurd.
The leaps are all that is absurd, and this is a **** poor excuse for making them.
Forget your pride and just admit you made the mistake of jumping to a ridiculous conclusion and move on instead of making excuses for it.
I might have missed it earlier, but the whole "karma" thing, didn't Bistiza bring it up in the first place? And now for the last couple of pages, he's been telling us he doesn't believe in it anyway? So if you don't believe it in, why even bring it up? No one else had.
Recap of the thread:
I mentioned how some people have suggested "karma" has affected LeBron, i.e. Dallas beat Miami in the finals before they could win one and other such things.
I pointed out how I don't believe in "karma" and used LeBron as an example, saying if "karma" existed, he'd have suffered more than he has, such as with a career-ending injury.
So while I "brought it up" in this particular thread, I did not "bring it up" overall. I also don't have to believe in something in order to "bring it up" in discussion or participate in a discussion about it.
First, forget your pride and admit that you have now accused me of accusing you of something that I never said. That wasn't me. Never said anything about what you intended. Since you're so big on admitting when you're wrong, I await your apology. I won't hold my breath.
Frankly, I'm only continuing this because you're condescending.
The analysis isn't fine. The point is that what Lebron did is NOWHERE near what you're suggestion his karmic balance should be. Not even in the same universe. Your belief is that serious physical harm is the karmic equivalent of althetic disloyalty. Yes, that is absurd.
