Everyone is aware by now about the possibilities of Lebron James, Chris Bosh, and Dwyane Wade playing together in Miami. Especially, since it’s been all over the news about the three of them meeting to talk about how they could make it happen, even if it means splitting the money up.
What makes this even more interesting is what OTR is hearing through the grapevine about a possible coaching change in Miami if these three superstars come together to form the Super Team.
And we aren’t hearing that GM Pat Riley is going to pull the chair underneath current coach Erik Spoelstra to take the position himself. Rumor has it that Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski would consider the leap into the NBA to coach the Heat if this super tri-merge happens.
Coach K has been the head coach of several US men’s national teams, including the gold medal-winning team at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing.
Bosh, James, and Wade were all on the “The Redeem Team” roster, finishing a perfect 8-0, and the three of them should indeed like the thought of reuniting with Krzyzewski in the NBA.
It will take a special kind of coach to be able to handle three superstar athletes on the same team. And there is nobody better than Kryzewski to handle the task.
He’s well respected by all three players and he has the voice they can listen to and trust. So, if and when Bosh and James join Wade in Miami, don’t be surprised if Coach K is soon to follow.
