Think things are getting just a wee bit testy in Miami right about now? The Heat are sitting at 9-8 (yes, 9-8) after yet another loss, this time to the Dallas Mavericks, 106-95. This latest defeat prompted a closed door, players only meeting immediately after the game. And Erik Spoelstra’s job status remains tenuous at best.
Think this is how LeBron, D-Wade and Chris Bosh envisioned the season playing out?
Midway through the 3rd quarter of the Mavs game, with the Heat down by 10, an incident took place between LeBron and head coach Erik Spoelstra that can be construed a number of ways. James gives Spoelstra a shoulder bump as he heads to the bench during a timeout.
Video follows the jump.
So, was it accidental, or an indication that Spoelstra has lost LeBron, and presumably, the rest of the Heat?
I’ll leave that up to you to decide, but either way, methinks Erik Spoelstra should start polishing up his résumé…like now.
