Former head coach David Fizdale reveals how LeBron James had to adjust to the Miami Heat mindset after his move to South Beach
Given just how great he is, LeBron James must be pretty used to getting his way, right?
At the end of the day, he could go to almost any franchise in the NBA, and get his way. That’s just the kind of generational player he is. If the King wants something, you move heaven and earth to make it happen.
Now, while this would apply to most teams, the Miami Heat don’t quite seem to fit into that category themselves.
The reason for this, is partly their GM being the Godfather, Pat Riley. And more than anything else, it’s because this franchise is one of those that prioritize the team over the player, no matter who they may be. Heck, when compared to the other teams in the NBA, some would even consider their attitude a bit militant.
As you can imagine, this would be quite the change LeBron James would have had to adjust to, during the start of his stint down in south beach. And well, David Fizdale once confirmed just that very thing.
Let’s get into it, shall we?
