Dallas Defeats Miami, Lebron James Fails Again



It was sweet watching the Dallas Mavericks drub the Miami Heat. On paper, of course, Miami should have won. Lebron James, Dwayne Wade, and Chris Bosh? That was a major talent haul designed to do nothing less than bring the title back to South Beach. Instead it was the heart, determination, and true teamwork of Dallas that prevailed. Led by the genius of Dirk Nowitski, the Mavericks took the NBA title for the first time in franchise history. And it was a well deserved victory. Miami, on the other hand, were unable to perform at their true level. Somehow their team spirit was not strong. There was not the purity of effort, the trust, nor the humility required for them to become champions. And, Lebron James simply did not deliver!  His ego continues to get in the way of his ability. And nothing is going to change for him, unless and until, he realizes that he is the source of his own failure. He’s just not that great of a player and he needs get over himself. Then and only then, will he have the chance to be a champion.

It’s easy and kind of fun to laugh at Lebron, but we should also learn from his mistakes. After all most of us are in need of a good dose of humility if we are to succeed in our own endeavors.
