LeBron James was admitted into the Cleveland Clinic Wednesday night with chest discomfort.
OK, Cleveland, everybody on the count of three...
One ... two ... three:
AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HE'S DEAD HE'S DEAD I KNEW IT THE CURSE LIVES IT'S ALL OVER!!!!!!!
Aren't we lucky that we have basketball executives that already do that for us?
LeBron woke up with a sore chest Tuesday, he reportedly said. He doesn't know how he injured it, but the soreness, diagnosed as a strained left pectoral muscle, kept him out of Tuesday's exhibition win over the Celtics. When the injury forced him out of Wednesday's practice, Danny Ferry's franchise alarm went off and LeBron was quickly whisked to the Clinic.
If LeBron indeed had a gaping hole or parasitic worm in there somewhere, as per Cleveland's luck, it was better to catch it sooner rather than later.
All tests came back normal, our Cavs beat reporter at The Gazette told me this afternoon, but he remains doubtful for Friday's home exhibition game against the 76ers.
However, if you want to breathe into a paper bag until you see LeBron in uniform and on the court again, you are permitted.
