We have a new low: Ohio radio station hires witch doctor to curse LeBron

And now we have reached what we can only hope is the nadir of the LeBron James hatred. It’s probably not. Probably not close. Sadly. But we can hope.

“Rover’s Morning Glory,” the morning show for WMMS-FM in Cleveland, hired a witch doctor to put a hex on LeBron. Said doctor used bones, blood and a James jersey to do the curse.

Cursing him as punishment for living up to his contract then exercising free will and choosing to go elsewhere.

Look, I get it, this was handled very poorly. Frankly, Carmelo Anthony is being fairer to Denver — he has made it clear he is leaving and Denver can decide how to handle this, rather than finding out on a national television show and getting nothing in return for the superstar. There is no good way for a star to leave a team, but some are better than others.

But seriously, a witch doctor? That’s what we’ve come to? Besides, it’s not going to work. You know the only way to get the gods angry enough to punish James is if he steals Jobu’s rum, right?
