Erik Spoelstra: Heat Players Crying in Locker Room After Loss to Bulls

The Miami Heat have a bit of a problem on their hands. Aside from the fact that they have lost four straight games and five out of their last six, they seem to lack leadership and guts. Furthermore, statistics prove that they have struggled mightily in clutch situations this season.  Not to worry, Heat fans — the players are very upset over their current skid.

Miami lost a heart-breaker to the Bulls on Sunday afternoon, with the same issues plaguing the Heat as LeBron James and Dwyane Wade both had chances to win the game in its final seconds and failed to get the job done.  According to Erik Spoelstra, the team took the loss pretty hard — perhaps too hard.

Sports by Brooks Live called our attention to the following tweet from Ira Winderman of the Sun-Sentinel:

There’s nothing wrong with showing some emotion, but what ever happened to toughing it out and turning things around?  The whole crying thing seems to be an emerging theme, as evidenced by Chris Bosh’s postgame press conference when the Heat blew a 24-point lead to the Magic.  Assuming Spoelstra is telling the truth, Miami might want to consider drying the tears and trying a different approach.  However they’re choosing to deal with their losses right now obviously isn’t getting it done.

    Please Fire Spoelstra! His game plan, or lack therof, at shutting down teams when they have a big league, is non existent. Look how the Lakers dominated the Spurs in the game after. And, of course, he can’t write up an end of game plan when it’s tight, for crap. FIRE SPOELSTRA IMMEDIATELY PLEASE

    It’s a coaching issue, people, mark my words. If they don’t get together before the playoffs Spoelstra will be fired. even if they get it together he will still be on the hot seat. as for the idiot making fun about the heat wining about 5 rings, when it’s all said and done they will have those rings. Mark these words. So fans don’t worry help will soon be on the way with a new coach.
