Jerry Sloan Has Erik Spoelstra’s Back

Ol’ Jerry thinks anyone who questions Spoelstra‘s coaching chops is nothing but a damn fool. And we’re certainly not gonna disagree with Mr. Sloan. From the Palm Beach Post: “[The Miami Heat] execute very well, what they’re trying to do,’ Sloan said. ‘Defensively, they’re very very sound and strong. I think he does a terrific job for a young coach or an old coach either, it doesn’t make any difference. I think he’s done a great job. It’s sad to have to listen to all the B.S. about this and that with his coaching. He just doesn’t have a frame of reference, and that’s what people get anxious about. Because a guy hasn’t won three or four championships, or done something like that, he doesn’t get as long as he should. But that’s part of this business, you have to know it when you get into it, because it can be short-lived.’”

    I said two weeks ago that Dwyane was the definitive problem…..then. (along with shotty playcalling on the offensive end). Now, Dwyane has his sh*t together, the offense is opening up and the team’s defensive stature is beginning to build. There are going to be problems for everyone that hated them for the first 15 games.

    You hear that PJax.


    this game wasn’t on TV(I have satellite of almost 2000 channels and still couldn’t find it). so I settled for atdhe.net…woow what an amazing game. Jazz said 5 can beat 3…lol they couldn’t even beat the big 2 since Bosh had an off night. The next few games 4 us is cake walk including the likes of GSW and SAC…

    Spoelstra will probably be the latest coach to win Coach of the Year over Sloan. Not saying Spoelstra wouldn’t deserve it if he got the team to win 55-plus with three of the biggest egos in the NBA, but DAMN can my man Sloan win a freakin’ COY already?!
