After having carte blanche in Cleveland where his slightest whim was attended to, in Miami that hasn't happened as much, head coach Eric Spoelstra doesn't cow-tow willy-nilly and it's possible LeBron is already tuning his coach out. During their Saturday game against the Mavericks, after the Heat called a timeout LeBron walked off the court towards the bench. Spoelstra was out on the court and LeBron walked right by him without saying anythingl; however, actions speak louder than words and LeBron instead of talking shoulder-checked his coach.
Is a Pat Riley-helmed Heat team a near-certainty now? Methinks so.
