So there's this funny running gag about LeBron James' receding hairline. It hasn't so much receded as it has been completely routed by calvalry, and is now foraging for food in the forest hoping the enemy does not pursue. There's even a timeline showing how it has evolved (or de-evolved, if you prefer) over time.  But now, it's not just mere mortals getting in on the act, it's Dwight Howard

Howard, in-between planking pictures, posted on Twitter Wednesday the following in response to a comment about LeBron James:


Howard later Tweeted "Bron my dude, jus (sic) had to make a joke." Considering the rivalry that seemed to have formed over the past three years, and even more so this past season, hard to see this as totally friendly. A joke, and nothing more, and a pretty funny one, but a reminder that the "taking my talents to South Beach" line is going to follow him for the rest of his life. And that hairline's right behind him.

So what's the over/under on which season James shaves it completely? Also, James should not hide it. Bald is beautiful, baby. (/bald guy'd.)

Dwight Howard mocks LeBron James on Twitter

Seriously???  Go back and look at Dwight's stats for that series (27.2 pts 16.5 rebs 1.8 blks), and the starting lineup he had behind him (A career backup at PF; Two overpaid, underperforming, midseason aquisitions that play no D at SG and SF; and a decent, but undersized PG) AND THEN compare them to LeBron's supporting cast.  Did LeBron ever win a title in Cleveland by himself?  NOPE!  At least Dwight is the actual LEADER of his team, while LeBron chose to go play second fiddle for the Heat (ALWAYS WILL BE) and ride D. Wade's jock to try and win a ring.  And if I remember correctly, the only time they ever matched up in the playoffs Dwight's team won 4-2.  LeBron loves all the praise heaped upon him during the regular season, but this makes two years in a row now where he's pulled a no show in the playoffs when his team needed him the most, withered under the pressure, and cost his team the series.  No debating his skills, but the great ones perform during crunch time, all LeBron has done is CHOKE!

I hope that every hair on "Dung Boy" James'" body falls out, and he developes a serious case of crotch rot in his groin!

And you couldn't even take your talents out of the first round. As you are so adept at shot-blocking, you should know this...right after you lay down a vicious block, you say..."sit down!"...well, sit down Dwight and let us know when you have a real team.
