David Fizdale has fantastic quote about defending LeBron James (Video)

David Fizdale

David Fizdale has coached LeBron James as a Miami Heat assistant and against him as Memphis Grizzlies coach, so he knows a thing or two about his skillset.

Serving as a guest analyst for ESPN’s NBA playoff coverage, Fizdale had a great response when asked how he’d tell a player to defend James.

“Compete your butt off and I hope you’re a religious man, because you’re gonna need to say some prayers,” Fizdale said.

James is averaging 34.3 points, 9 rebounds, and 7.3 assists per game this postseason, and he’s not off the floor much to give opponents a breather, either. Fizdale’s advice is probably the best they’re going to get.
