LeBron God NBA Finals

If we have learned anything from Sunday school, it’s that God — the being that created the world in seven days — is quite the multitasker. Even tweens these days who can text, tweet, and read all four Twilight books at once have got nothin’ on him. But believe me, LeBron James, when I tell you that God is probably a bit too busy to have had a hand in last night’s NBA Finals, during which your faltering performance led to the Miami Heat’s loss to the Dallas Mavericks. That fact didn’t stop the NBA star, however, from pointing to God, tweeting last night, “The Greater Man upstairs know when it’s my time. Right now isn’t the time.”

The Greater Man (or woman!) upstairs also knows that proper grammar is important. (But he/she does forgive, providing it’s a simple typo.) But while I’m willing to believe that God does take a time out from attempting to end world hunger, war, and Paris Hilton’s career every once in awhile to catch a sporting event, an American Idol finale, and a Mad Men episode (to admire his finest creations, of course), God shouldn’t be the scapegoat for a loss, since he’s likely a tad too busy with Europe’s debt crisis to determine the results of the NBA Final. Especially when The Glee Project was on!

Think James should own up, PopWatchers? Or did God have money on the Mavericks?
