LeBron James Lobs Twitter Threats to Critics As Bill Simmons Promptly Responds

LeBron James: 25-year-old multimillionaire, two-time NBA MVP and … cyber bully?

That's James' latest addition to the resume, as he sent a message to his critics the only way he knew how: Twitter.

"Don't think for one min that I haven't been taking mental notes of everyone taking shots at me this summer," he wrote. "And I mean everyone!"

James has obviously taken quite a bit of criticism this summer for handling his free-agency decision like a fame-loving, young, rich megastar. To this point in his life, James has not been questioned all that much, so it's likely coming as a shock.

Not surprisingly, ESPN.com's Bill Simmons had something to say rather quickly.

"Hey @kingjames – do your "mental notes" include an answer for why you no-showed Game 5 + quit in the last 90 secs of Game 6?" Simmons wrote on his Twitter page. "Tape don't lie."

Earlier on Tuesday, the NBA's schedule was announced, with James' Miami Heat playing in 29 nationally televised games. LeBron's making sure in August that the spotlight is already shining when the games begin.
