LeBron James -- The Coldest Cut of All

7/9/2010 5:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

LeBron James couldn't have possibly predicted just how much he'd piss off New Yorkers last night -- because now he's facing backlash from the most powerful Jewish deli ever.

The world-famous Carnegie Deli -- home of the best rice pudding on Earth -- is sticking it to LeBron the best way it can ... by discontinuing a sandwich it named after the guy.

See, a few weeks ago ... when LeBron was toying with the emotions of New Yorkers by pretending to be interested in the Knicks, the deli created a mega-sandwich in his honor ... a foot-high turkey, pastrami, corned beef, brisket, American cheese, lettuce, tomato spectacle stacked on rye bread.

But now that LeBron dissed the Big Apple ... the deli is dumping the sando.

FYI -- the sandwich sold for $19.95 -- but some things money can't buy ... like loyalty.

Lebron won’t read any of these postings because he doesn’t care. If Chamberlin, Jordan, Barkley, Johnson, Bird, Elway, Gretsky, Brown, and others ever pulled off a BS infomercial to announce what next step they were taking on they're self imposed greatness, they would have all been denounced as losers even if they won a championship. Sell out now and pay later - I will now invest heavily into the Cav's brand in hope they will beat your unmanageable ego to a championship and self imposed, I Am The King, greatness. I will now boycott everything Lebron and everything Miami Heat.

Your infomercial was a total bust as is your marketability. Anything Lebron I will use to clean my toilets.

You call yourself a King - I call you a sellout.

Get a new agent, get infused with some class and, never forget the organization, people and city who made your life and the life of your family successful.

Go get more tats, fall into a tackle box of piercings, wear custom clothes, have more unwedded kids and live in mega-mansions but never compare yourself to the Greats who had chops to be Mega-Stars in the NBA and sports - Good Riddance.
