Miami Heat forward LeBron James tweets that God said it's not his time to win an NBA title after losing the 2011 NBA Finals to the Dallas Mavericks. Posted by Ben Golliver.

Shortly after the Dallas Mavericks defeated the Miami Heat in the 2011 NBA Finals, Heat forward LeBron James took to Twitter to explain what happened.

"The Greater Man upstairs knows when it's my time," James tweeted. "Right now isn't the time."

James finished with 21 points, four rebounds, six assists and six turnovers in 40 minutes in Game 6, as the Mavericks closed out the Heat, 4-2.

James, 26, is now 0-for-2 in NBA Finals trips. He also lost in the 2007 NBA Finals to the San Antonio Spurs as a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers. His Finals averages: 17.8 points, 7.2 rebounds and 6.8 assists. For the postseason, James averaged 23.8 points, 8.6 rebounds and 5.9 assists.

This loss will largely be pinned on his shoulders. The Heat entered the Finals as heavy favorites, with three of the best four players in the series in James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. Nevertheless, Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki and a solid supporting cast that included Jason Terry, Shawn Marion and Jason Kidd pulled off the upset in stunning fashion, closing out the series in American Airlines Arena, Miami's homecourt.

Way to avoid personal responsibilty Lebron.  NO maybe if "I" wasn't busy making cough cough jokes, or maybe if "I" didn't disappear in the 4th quarters, or maybe if "I" played better, or maybe if "WE" had worked harder as a team to learn to play like a team.  NO, of course not that couldn't be it!  It had to be you didn't win because God decided you weren't going to win.  I pray God never allows you to win.  What a D-bag.

That's it, LeBron, blame your invisible, make-believe friend in the sky.  I wonder if your "god" was punishing you for acting like a jack-***.

Its funny they were UP! Up big 2-1 on the mavs who swept the lakers. The Downward spiral alll started when they were up 15 points and started celebrating in front of the Mav bench. Now he wants to be a humble guy talking about god :)
