As most of you know by now, LeBron James and the Miami Heat were defeated by the Dallas Mavericks in the NBA finals last night. LeBron blamed "God" for the loss. During the post game presser, James said: "The Greater Man upstairs know when it's my time. Right now isn't the time."
"There are reportedly one billion people in this world that are hungry, several wars and people worldwide trying to get over terrible disasters-I don't believe God cares who won the NBA Finals.
"LeBron James brought his 'talents' to South Beach, too bad those 'talents' don't include a heart-or the ability for correct introspection. Now, after the worst final choke in history his answer is that God didn't want him to win. He tweeted 'The greater man upstairs knows when it is my time. Right now isn't the time.' At least he acknowledged that God is the greater man.
"Does this mean that God is a Maverick fan? Or that God was rooting for Dirk or Jason? Or that God was just rooting against Miami?... Thank God for your health, for your family, for the opportunity-but please don't thank God anymore for sports victories-I don't believe he is a sports fan, and I hope he is not because I hope he has bigger issues to work on.
"And, PLEASE whatever you do-don't blame him for your losses-that is just classless. Now as LeBron stated so emphatically-I'll go back to my daily life as we commoners tend to do. Which isn't so bad-and, BTW, I have as many rings as LeBron."
