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.

Right on Da Bearz.  Seriously, if there is a God, LePrincess thinks he or she has nothing better to do than watch LeJoke play basketball?  Someone stick a pin in LeQuiter's head before it explodes.  Take it like a man - YOU failed, and no one else is to blame.  If there is a God, he or she is on the side of the average NBA fan, most all of whom are praying for your failure.

The greater man upstairs just makes me laugh.  While the upstairs dude was giving Jason Terry the power to win, he was pulling the strings to make LBJ lose.  Too bad the upstairs guy wasn't getting water to the million kids who will dehydrate this year in Africa.

I would say that the "main" problem is that there is no reason to believe any of it is remorely true. But you're right in that it also teaches that people are worthless drones who are not worthy of anything and deserve eternal torment for the sin of being born unles sthey grovel the proper way.

Before anyone takes this tweet as "giving God the glory" in a tough time, I thought I would expose this fraud once more. By tweeting that God just wasn't ready for LeBron to win a title he relieves himself of the responsibility of knowing that he simply wasn't good enough to win it. This is the main problem I have with religion...too many times it is used however is most convenient for that of the "believer" if that's what you want to call LeBron in this case. When is the last time you heard LeBron giving a god the credit after a series win? If you guessed never then you guessed right!

Now that is what I wanted to hear from LBJ! it doesn't matter what he or any of his coaches, teammates, or what anyone else says, everything is done according to GOD's will, not man.  Not once have I ever heard him say anything about GOD so maybe this loss will humble him and show him he is not in charge of even his own life.  You do your best and let GOD do the rest!

It is hilarious how he keeps the "King" title in his name.  I guess it is correct.  He is the King of quitting.  The King of not closing.  The King of being the b1tch in the Finals.  Etc.  The guy has all of the wealth that he will ever need which he has to be given credit.  Yet, he will never be a complete basketball player and will never get to hold the championship trophy unless he buys it.  Stand by for a big Heat implosion next season.

Greater Man?  Is LeBron trying to say that he's a great man, but God is a Greater Man?  Wouldn't that be slightly blasphemous to even compare yourself to God?

Everything LeBron does just reeks of his ego.

....or you just plain blew it.  Your numbers dont lie.  I would start to think to myself, "why was it Wade had a great series, and Bosh played well too?".  "Why me and not them?"   Well, because paybacks are a (fill in blank).  Your self-centered plan to sweep the rug from underneath the NBA failed.  Stop blaming the lord, you stink.  I am not a Cleveland fan by any means but that city deserved better, and got a slice of dignity back last night.

As for Dirk, great series, you and your crew deserve it.
