    I realize the miami heat always been the underdawgs and spoelstra came at the right time when phil jackson was leaving out the rest of them wasnt doing what steve kerr did and spoelstra might be a top 5 coach

    Riles should send a message to Mad Dog… Danny Ainge like and tell him to SHUT THE F UP!!!!!…I’ll bet you he will. Spoelstra has ZERO worries about anything being at stake for him. Mad Dog smirk tells me he even knows this was a stupid take that shouldn’t have even been breached.

    I’m sorry man but just stop talking basketball with Mad Dog, he’s braindead when it comes to anything but the Celtics.

    When I see the Heat I think more of a Pat Riley system than an Erik Spoelstra led team for some reason. Coach Spo was super fortunate to have LeBron, D Wade & Bosh when he did. From the bubble to now they’ve done quite well though

    THE DIFFERENCE WAS KOBE TO SHAQ WAS THE PLAY AND BOSH TO ALLEN WAS A CLUTCH PLAY MADE BY PLAYERS NOT SPOELSTRA. RAY ALLEN ON YOUR COURT AND LEBRON SHOOTS😂😂😂

    Mad Dog just doesn’t like the Heat. it’s clear after this segment, no more needs to be said about his opinion on anything related to them

    I havent even watched yet and as a Sixers fan…. I knooooow nobody is saying Spoelstra is anything less than a top notch coach….

    This Russo guy can’t be taken seriously at all. Might be worse then Skip.

    Mad Dog is the dude that hasn’t seen a basketball game since Jordan retired. And still thinks nothing will be better than Stark’s dunk.
