A former translator for Osama Bin Laden thinks LeBron should apologize to Cleveland. Glad his priorities are in line.

Muhammed Rahim is a detainee at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba, ad a former translator for the formerly alive Osama Bin Laden. He had his lawyer whip up a letter to the Washington Post, and in it, he asked for a cat for company, since other prisoners have them. Oh, yes, and he delightfully decided to share his feelings on The Decision from back in 2010. Yup. Kittens and LeBron, from Bin Laden’s translator:

In addition to sharing the news of Khan’s cat, Rahim had another thought to share with his lawyer, who, we should note, is from Akron, Ohio.

“Dear Mr. Warner!” he wrote in a separate freshly declassified letter. “Lebron James is very bad man. He should apologize to the city of Cleveland.”

Warner says Rahim’s sentiment about the NBA star who left the Cleveland Cavaliers for the Miami Heat reflects his client’s tribal values, in which loyalty is paramount and “betrayals are not tolerated or forgiven, although an honest apology from an offending peer is valued.”

OK, then.

This concludes today’s example of how civilization is quickly vanishing into the mist.

    The Washington Post is giving away cats?

    How funny is this. Okay, I’ll play along.

    No Apologies!! LeBron doesn’t bow to the demands of terrorists! An apology to Cleveland would be the equivalent of treason. Screw you Cleveland. Screw you dead Bin Laden! U-S-A!!!!! U-S-A!!!!

      Even a terrorist has more class than your boy LeBron.

    this website has gotten worse and worse over the last year.. have some standards PBT.

    This is just more proof my argument that Lebron was responsible for 9/11. Now I just need evidence that he shot Lincoln….

      don’t forget being the second gunman on the grassy knoll

    Cleveland owes LeBron an apology for wasting years of his career putting no talent around him and just banking off his popularity.

    Instead of sending you a cat maybe the Obama administration will set you up with s beach front condo and a business. Oh wait hexagons be the first detainee that revived those benefits

    “Bin Laden murder people…but Mr. James you are awful because you have no loyalty”

    This website has so much potential. There use to be only a few other basketball sites I had ahead of this one when I discovered it, now the content is just awful. I see “posts” like this and I don’t know how you guys aren’t held to a higher standard. Profootballtalk gets a lot of traffic, the opportunity is there to do something huge.

    F his feelings!!! being associated with a terrorist and he’s concerned about LeBron betraying Cleveland!

      So what conclusion are you drawing here, jack?

  15. hannahsdaddy - Aug 17, 2012 at 7:42 PM

    I pray this douschbag develops cancer and dies a painful death.

    • money2long - Aug 17, 2012 at 8:19 PM

      I pray you have the Slomin’s Shield, God forbid karma comes knocking at your door.

    • kappneffect - Aug 19, 2012 at 10:23 AM

      And you pray this because? And he is a “douschbag” why again?

    I suppose Kurt wouldn’t even touch this one

    This is a joke. The guy is a worthless POS whose value to integrators has long passed. And we give him a cat to play with? He should be put before a firing squad.

    • kappneffect - Aug 19, 2012 at 10:25 AM

      He is worthless to whom? and why? Firing squad? for what?

      PBT is ruthless I see.

    This still isn’t the worst post of the day! (Yo Gabba Gabba w/ Metta World Peace was worse)

    • money2long - Aug 17, 2012 at 9:09 PM

      At least it wasn’t Yo Gabba Gabba w/ Sandusky

    His next request….a trip to the debate desk to talk with Skip and Stephen A.about the decision.

  24. 00maltliquor - Aug 18, 2012 at 3:10 AM

    Easily the weirdest peice I’ve ever read on here.

    This dude WORKED for the worlds biggest terrorist, maybe of all time (?) and HE’S concerned about LeBron’s moral status!????? Whoooa bro, whoooooa! Pot, meet kettle.

    And who’s this guy’s lawyer??

  25. muir6 - Aug 18, 2012 at 6:31 AM

    Lawyer from cleveland made this up or planted idea in this moron s head. Every time some puss from Ohio cries bout Lebron it makes it less painful to root for him. Indians Browns Cavs and OSU all suck
