Dallas loss, a personal failure: LeBron James
The dust had barely settled from Sunday night's loss to the Dallas Mavericks when the questions started flying for the Miami Heat.|
With all the talent that came from their free agent signings in the offseason how could "King" James and the Heat lose the NBA finals in six games to Dirk Nowitzki and his Merry Men?
Miami was in basketball mourning on Monday. "It's a failure for myself losing to the Mavericks. Absolutely," said
The pieces of the puzzle were supposed to be in place from the beginning of the season.
Miami had re-signed Dwyane Wade then lured James and Chris Bosh to form the most dangerous trios in the NBA.
But the Mavericks proved with their 105-95 series clinching win at the AmericanAirlines arena that teams, and not individuals, win championships.
"Their time will come but now it is our time," said Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle.
