I can confidently say if the Heat don’t win the Championship Erik Spoelstra won’t be the coach next year.
He is in a no win situation.
He has no power, what can he possibly tell Lebron and D Wade? Plus Pat Riley has basically said those two players run the team. If the Heat win he won’t get any credit, if they lose he will be the scapegoat.
Lebron is already chirping about playing too many minutes.
“For myself, 44 minutes is too much,” James declared. “I think Coach Spo knows that. Forty minutes for D-Wade is too much. We have to have as much energy as we can to finish games out.”
The reason why James and Wade are playing so many minutes is because the rest of the team is “Oscar the Grouch” status aka they are garbage.
If either Lebron or Wade sit for long period of time the Heat are going to lose, so it is a catch 22.
But what Lebron wants, Lebron usually gets, so look for his minutes to be cut.
