Erik Spoelstra comes to LeBron James’ defense


Alright, alright, I promise this is the last I’ll write about LeBron James and his cramps from Game 1. I mean I guess I can’t really promise that but I sincerely hope that it’s the last time because I’m kind of tired about writing about it. But Miami Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra has come to his defense, and it’s worth checking out what he had to say.

You would hope that when a star player suffers from a horribly timed bout of leg cramps that his coach would come to defense, and that’s just what Erik Spoelstra did earlier this afternoon. He came out throwing verbal hands at anyone who wanted to verbally step to LeBron over his supposed lack of toughness or something like that.

Hell yeah! Damn, Erik Spoelstra, stunt on them haters.

But seriously, I hope this finally ends any LeBron criticism because how many smart people need to keep coming to his defense for people to realize that they’re wrong to criticize him. When you’re opposing hoards of very smart people, you probably need to stop and think about what you’re saying and/or doing for a second.
