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.

 I'm sick of everyone thanking or believing everything that happens is God's doing.

Dear James,

I am a Mavericks Fan. I don't really like you very much.

Sincerely,

God

When LeGone says "The Greater Man upstairs know when it's my time" are we sure he's not referring to Dan Gilbert?

There are times in life when saying nothing about yourself is the best thing to say - maybe praise the Mavs and leave it at that..

Lebron, in his press conference, says "Some times you got it, sometime you don't."  Spoken like a loser.  While most of the fans will never be handed everything in life, this guy thinks that he is the center of it all, and will never come to the realization that he is the cause of his own problems.  Ya know why?  Because I have something he never will.  AN EDUCATION.

So, basically, LeBron is blaming God for him not winning the title this year.  Got it.

I am quite sure that "The Man Upstairs" has bigger things on His plate than the NBA Finals.
