Sorry this dumb. Spo took this team to the finals last season. Name me any other coach maybe apart from Pop who would have done that. Spo is somewhat at fault but majority is on players. Dragic is on the decline as expected. But we expecting the younger players Herro, Bam & Duncan to pick up the slack and take another jump. Bam has shown glimpses when Jimmy was out but reverted back. Herro & Duncan have been worse than they were during the bubble.
Spo didnt take anybody anywhere, players were hitting shots and playing semi good defense, Herro, Nunn and Duncan were and still are horrible defensive players, Spoelstra does not make better players out of shi tty players, in the big three era, we won in spite of Spoelstra. He is bad with rotations, bad with his in game adjustment in general, bad in preparation before a game. It is a miracle when our team comes out with a defined working strategy agains our oponnent. No, Spoelstra is not a good coach.
Are we talking feelings or are we talking results. One year from a finals run and suddenly Spo and FO don't wtf they're doing. There are 25 other teams that would take the last 10 years of Heat. It ain't easy to win, it ain't easy to get to the finals. Name me the other coach who would have gotten that team to the finals. Its facts Celts, Bucks had more talented rosters than us last season, yet we beat them. Maybe we were lucky or maybe I don't know Spo had a gameplan that worked.
This is every team's fanbase. There are Spurs fans convinced that Pop is a bum. Either a bad coach or the game has passed him by. The same goes for Rick Carlisle, and Kerr, and the same was said about Pat Riley and Phil Jackson. The level of career success doesn't mean anything. Some people can't accept that the bad results they are seeing are the best possible outcome under the current circumstances. They are sure that if the head coach simply changed something, the team would be better. Of course if the coach changes something and that fails too, it's because he changed the wrong thing.
I wasn't always a Spo fan, but at some point you have to conclude that maybe he knows what he's doing.
This Heat team is limited in several ways right now, and there's nothing that Spo can do except continue to rely on the talented underachievers to get their **** together and play better. Our personnel moves were handcuffed by a desire to preserve future cap space, so no one should be surprised that this team isn't a fine tuned machine. Some of that is the predictable result of the front office deciding to prioritize the near future over the present.
