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.

No Team in the history of the NBA has won a title if Lebron James was on the roster. I was never a Jordan fan but the more i watch James the more I respect Jordan.

This is blasphemy at its best! CaBron James is using God as an excuse for not winning a title. Heck, for I know God wants LeBron to succeed or otherwise God will not blessed him with that kind of talent that he brought to south beach and failed in game 6 of the NBA finals.

Just when you think James couldn't look like/be more of an idiot, he proves me wrong. Sure LB, God really cares if you win a title or not, especially a self centered ego maniac like yourself; you live in a fantasy world.  By definition LeBron, you are a fool.  Interesting twist, God told me just two minutes ago that LeBron is an idiot.

Maybe God is punishing you for that swollen head of yours and that swift kick to Cleveland's crotch.
Still, no ring for the self proclaimed king.

Dear Loser:

Maybe, just maybe, being outplayed by a better team was a bigger factor than god.

Just a thought.

What does The Man Upstairs have to do with "King" James winning or not winning an NBA championship???  I'm sure God has better and more important things to worry about.  I hate when athletes say God wanted this.  What?  God was rooting for the other team to lose?  Did those athletes not have as much faith??  I CALL BS.  You can thank God for giving you the talents you have.  I'm fine with that.  But do you really think he wanted your team to win or lose???  He gave you the talent.  YOU have to go out there and make it your time.  God doesn't decide if its your time or not, unless it has to do with dying.  Thank God for your talents and not wheter you won or lost something.  That's on you.  Otherwise, it seems like you are trying to deflect blame.  eg " I wasn't good enough to bring the win home.  I guess God has other plans for me."  Again, BS.
