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.

Hopefull the Good Lord can bring this guy a gut because that was the most gutless performance in any sport I have ever seen.  A player that was an offensive force for 5-6 years in Cleveland with virtually no help and multiple double teams, a player who once scored I think 25 straight points in a playoff game against Detroit, to now a player who acted like the ball was scalding hot.  Somewhere in Cleveland they are partying.  He looked lost and scared against guys that really arent known as defensive stoppers.  If I was Scottie Pippen I would hide for the rest of my life, "he may be better than Jordan", WHAT?

This is what LeBron James  said on the decision show." Like I said before, I feel like it's going to give me the best opportunity to win and to win for multiple years, and not only just to win in the regular season or just to win five games in a row or three games in a row, I want to be able to win championships. And I feel like I can compete down there."
Well, LeBron you have to win one championship before you can win championships. This is the kind of  arrogant  comments that he makes all the time and is why he is taking all the heat and criticism now. Did  God tell you to say championships and to milk the "decision" for all it was worth.

He's either referring to David Stern...

Or contemplating suicide.
