When asked about the team mood, he said, "there's a couple guys crying in the locker room right now." "We stay together," James said. "Spo is the captain of the ship and we're going to stay behind whatever Spo says. It doesn't matter. Spo can go out there and say whatever he wants about the team. We're going to stand by him."
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: They made their bed. Now they must lie in it.
Last summer the Miami Heat irked the NBA’s 29 other franchises by winning The Great Free Agent Chase of 2010 and signing superstars Chris Bosh, LeBron James, and Dwyane Wade.
Then they rubbed their nose in it by parading their ‘Three Kings’ in front of screaming of fans before playing a single game together.
Why would there be sympathy for the Heat?
Nobody cares if a few players were crying after a tough loss on Sunday to the Chicago Bulls. And nobody cares that they dropped four consecutive games.
These are the big, bad Heat. They are the team most fans love to hate. And they are the team most fans love to watch lose.
So James is right to declare that the players and coaching staff must stick together. But he has to say this. In fact, he has no choice.
It's the Heat and their fans against the world.
