LeBron tweets, 'I fell short again'

LeBron James knows it. He knows what you're saying after Miami's loss against the Jazz. He choked. He's not clutch. He's shrunk again.

With the game on the line and the Heat down a point, LeBron passed to an open Udonis Haslem for the game-winner. Haslem missed, and now we're all talking about LeBron. After the game, LeBron tweeted this:

I fell short again. I don't know if LeBron just happened to phrase it that way, but that's real talk. That's digger deeper. That's laying it out there in a way that opens you up to his world.

He knows he failed late against the Mavericks. He knows he has a history of those moments. He doesn't deny it. He desperately wants to win and he did everything but make that shot for Haslem to get his team there. Eighteen points in the fourth, 35-10-6 for the game and brilliant defense and shotmaking down the stretch. But it's that one moment where he failed.

Except he didn't even fail. Haslem did. LeBron set him up beautifully, his teammate just missed the shot. But LeBron takes responsibility because as he tweeted, he could've done more. He could've made a difference. You can say a lot about yourself in 140 characters or less, and LeBron really did.

Kobe sux azz. Cant be best in game shooting at 44%. I will take Lebron quarters one thru three, then have kobe play the fourth.

It was a good pass but it was to a guy not getting paid to be the go to guy. Kobe would have taken the shot and more often than not, made it.

Actually, the Heat are 3rd best at the moment.

Lebron needs to shut up and stop adding fuel to his own fire.  Twitter is all a bunch of self aggrandizing nonsense that should be banned from pro sports, Nothing good comes out of it. First off Im not a Lebron fan I respect his skills,but I also realize hes not a closer or a killer like Kobe or MJ was. By the same token, the play that was run last night was perfectly executed down the stretch and thats Haslems shot the 16-18 footer, so i think coach Spo would be happy with that every time. Lets not forget Miami was down 18 in the end of the 3rd and if not for Lebrons huge 4th the game wouldnt even be close. Lets stop acting like Miami cant lose any game either.

So what! We have been just cruely to this kid. Please remember, not too many get the chance to shoot the last shot. He missed, oh boy, did that end their season, ruin anything for rhe Heat? No, but it gives other food for thought. Maybe they need to run a better play instead of a jump shot. Time to get off of LeBron. The decision is over, the Heat are the best in the NBA. Live with it. He is the best in the league and missing a game winner or game tying sot is not the end of the world. Ok, he almost never hits the big shot, but he gets them to that spot. I think this is where Bosh and Wade come in...
