Happy Monday, Beatdowners!
Congrats go out Dirk and the Mavs on their improbable NBA Title win last night! I'm by no means a fan of the NBA, but I was pulling for them - actually, I was pulling for ANYONE but Miami and "King James"...well, them and the Lakers, since Kobe is a piece of crap, too.
Back to LeBron...
He had the balls to post the following Tweet today - "The greater man upstairs knows when it is my time. Right now isn’t the time."
So God chose for the Mavs to win, and not LeBron and the Heat.
While I can say I don't personally "know" God (I do believe in Him...we just don't "hang out", per say), I'm fairly certain that He isn't too concerned about who wins what sporting event...at least I don't think so.
Well when I look around the world, I see and read reports that there are AT LEAST one billion people in the world that are hungry, countless millions below the proverbial poverty line, there are quite a few deadly conflicts in various regions of the world, and every time I turn on the news, there is another natural disaster that people are trying to contend with.
LeBron James is a great basketball player, don't get me wrong. He'll probably go down in history as one of the all time greats. But that Tweet proved he doesn't have the HEART of a champion...or as I saw in another article today, someone said he doesn't have the "the ability for correct introspection".
At least in his Tweet, LeBron had one thing right - God certainly is greater of the two.
Is God so much a Mavericks fan that he specifically decided it wasn't LeBron's time? Is God partial to Dirk? Was God rooting against the Heat?
Not the God I believe in. I really hope He has more important things to worry about and intercede in.
Everyone should thank God for things that matter - you know...your health, your family, opportunity...but not for sports victories. I've played sports - I've prayed to win. But I didn't blame God when I didn't.
LeBron needs to man up, admit that the better TEAM won, look deep inside himself and figure out how he could improve as a player...face it, he choked in the fourth quarter of each game in the series.
And more importantly than that, he needs to find HEART...because he has none.
He's a megalomaniac.
He's an ass.
What gives me the right to say all of this?
Last time I checked, I have as many NBA Championships as LeBron.
Until next time...
