Miami Heat Crying Controversy: Erik Spoelstra Taking the Heat Now!

Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra is in hot water this week after he revealed that some members of the Heat were crying in the locker room after they were defeated by the Chicago Bulls yesterday.

Generally, it’s very frowned upon for male athletes to cry after a loss (especially a regular game loss) which led to some of the Miami Heat players releasing comments insisting it wasn’t them.

As soon as Erik made the comments, speculation around which players were brought to tears started hitting the media. Many thought it was Chris Bosh or Dwayne Wade but both players denied that they were the ones shedding the tears.

Regardless of who it was (let’s face it, we’ll probably find out in a couple of days anyway) many are arguing that it wasn’t Erik’s place to tell the media what was happening behind closed doors after the game ended. Spoelstra’s intentions didn’t seem to be questionable at the time: he was just trying to make a point about how upset his team was, but many are furious over the lack of confidentiality over the players’ emotions.

What happens in the locker room stays in the locker room, right? Or at least it’s supposed to.

Do you think Erik Spoelstra was out of line with his comments?

  3. What happened earlier last year in Cleveland, when LeBron announced that he was going to the HEAT? Letting Cavalier fans think that he was staying. He made a national ‘big dea about it, ugh, get some class. A lot of bragging, ego and arrogance on his part. Pretending that he loved Cleveland so much! I’m inclined to think that he didn’t like it at all. What a fake!!! What a slam to his players and fans!!! A lot of true fans were crying for a very good reason. He lied to them and let them down, to say the least. And when he came back to play the cavaliers, he thought he was so coy and hot stuff!!! Well, guess what, it’s his turn to CRY!!! He was probably one of the “cry babies” in the locker room. Well look what is happening… KARMA! I know some of you don’t believe in Karma, but believe me, I totally do. I’ve seen it happen over and over again. Hey HEAT, “Don’t count your chickens before they’re hatched.” If you really do hatch, do it in the locker room, we’ll have an announcement from your coach.

    I’m waiting to see the Cavaliers beat the Heat! It might not happen, but it’s possible.
