A Pathetic Response
In the wake of losing the 2011 NBA Finals, LeBron James tweeted philosophically: "The Greater Man upstairs knows when it's my time. Right now isn't the time." This is a pathetic response by the self-described Chosen One, King James. Few excuses for poor performance are more irksome than professional athletes invoking God in the discussion as a way of rationalizing personal failings and shortcomings. One would assume that the Almighty has better, more pressing concerns than to inject himself in the outcome of the NBA Finals. Indeed, it would seem that it has been a few centuries since he demonstrated any stake or rooting interest in athletic contests, David versus Goliath being the notable exception.
