LeBron describes loss as personal failure

12:24 pm on 14 June 2011

Miami's All-Star basketballer LeBron James has described the Heat's defeat in the NBA finals as the lowest moment of his career.

His side lost game to the Dallas Mavericks, who ended their 31-year wait to win an NBA title.

The Mav's won game six 105-95 in Miami to seal the best of seven series four games to two, with Dallas's German star Dirk Nowitzki named finals MVP after his outstanding performances in the playoffs.

However the loss was a bitter pill to swallow for James, who concedes while he's not bothered by his critics, he views the defeat as a personal failure.
