I made a joke the other day that if the Heat won the championship, I could see Spoelstra being the first coach to be fired even after winning a title. Really not a fan of his coaching style. There were some legitimate moments in both the Indiana and Boston serieses where I thought the Heat weren't so much being outplayed, but outcoached. I actually felt bad for Lebron in that Celtics series because he seemed to be the only person really contributing at the level they're being paid to play at, but I also just saw the Heat losing on simple tactics. Losing Bosh didn't help....
I will always root against Lebron and personally have a semi-asterisk beside this championship as he did it with two other top ten players in the league, which I don't like one bit. Magic, Bird and Jordan all had amazing TEAMS, but this Heat team came across as a create-a-team you'd make up in a videogame.
Again, I'm really not a fan of their style of play, I do however like Wade and Battier as players and have seen Bosh's level of talent. All that said, I gotta pay the devil his due in that Lebron really came through when he needed to be in beastmode.
