In sports in general, when teams are not getting the results expected very often the Head Coach pays the price whether it is deserved or not. Jeff Hornacek, who was fired by the Suns despite having a team plagued with injured, is the latest example.
LeBron, who was discussing that situation in Phoenix, said coaching is defintely in his plans because as a player he is already a scapegoat so it would only be worse as a head coach.
“Man, I couldn’t be a head coach,” James said to cleveland.com upon learning about Phoenix’s situation.” Boy, I’ll get blamed for every little thing. Can you imagine that? Please.”
LeBron is building his empire and I doubt that after his playing days there is any chance we see him coaching in the NBA. The scrutiny is something he had to deal with since high school and he understands better than anybody that’s what he signed up for when he became the “Chosen One”.
“It’s the shoes that I’ve been put into it and I understand it, but it’s not a distraction at all,” James said of the attention he receives now, fair or foul. “The only thing I’m worried about is winning. That’s all that matters to me. Everything else comes secondary and that’s all I’m about.
Hopefully for Cavs’ fans he can deliver a title this season otherwise there is alot more criticism coming his way but that too, he is already aware of it.
