With the Draft coming up tomorrow night, and trade rumors flying left and right, we are all heavily anticipating the upcoming moves of the NBA’s top teams.
So yeh in case you missed it the Heat lost in the Finals, once again denying “The Chosen One” a Championship Ring. The Dirk/Jesus led Mavs were able to take down the Mighty Monstars of Miami. Unfortunately for Dirk and Co., their incredible championship run has been overshadowed by the seemingly more important incredible championship failure of the Heat. Myself being a huge Lebron hater, I was still surprised by how much disgust basketball fans worldwide showed for the Heat during the Finals. Why so much hate?….So much talent.
Lebron, Wade, and Chris Bosh (not a superstar but still very talented) – There is no reason for anything less than a Championship. You know it, I know it, and that’s why we all hate them.
Even with the horrid “FAILURE” of the Heat not winning a championship in their first year, Pat Riley reminded us yesterday that “we will be a multiple championship-contending team. This was a great year. It was a disappointing ending”. Clearly, the Heat are going to be a JUGGERNAUT for years to come.
So what should the Heat do this offseason to avoid another FAILURE?? Look no further than the above picture.
On your left…. One of the Greatest head coaches in NBA history – Five Championships, three times coach of the year, I mean seriously….. the guy even took the Knicks to the NBA Finals.
On your right… Erik Spoelstra – First Filipino-American head coach of any professional sports team in America. YYAAAYY!!!
Pretty cool fun fact, but get real with this guy. Last two minutes of an ELIMINATION game in the NBA FINALS and super-genius Spoelstra subs in EDDIE HOUSE just in time chuck up an air-mailed 3 pointer. (Sorry Eddie. Still love everything you did for the Celts, but for no reason should you have been touching the floor here). How about James Jones??? Single handedly beat the Celts Game 1, and was shooting a ridiculous 46% from downtown in the playoffs. NBA Finals comes along and Spoelstra strikes again… Jones didn’t play a single minute in the series. Just by seeing some of the stare down’s/blank expressions in the huddle, there’s no way Wade or Lebron trust this guy when the games on the line.
If the Heat are seriously trying to take home the title next year, it’s time that Riley stops worrying about hurting the little guy’s ego and takes over as Head Coach like the Boss that he is. That being said, man I hope he doesn’t. Yay Spoelstra!!
(PS – I love spelling my Headlines correctly).
