(Newser) – LeBron James was not a happy camper after the Dallas Maverick's win over the Miami Heat in Game 6 of the NBA finals, and he let everyone know about it. In a clarification today, James said the humanity-dissing comments he made may have been misunderstood, and that when it comes to the overwhelming criticism of himself and his team, "not only myself, but everyone has to move on with their lives."
