Dwyane Wade Takes Jab at Head Coach Erik Spoelstra

During the Miami Heat‘s championship celebration on Monday, Dwyane Wade directed some criticism towards head coach Erik Spoelstra.

Ethan J. Skolnick of the Palm Beach Post reported that Wade said, “The only thing (Spoelstra) used to be able to do when I first got here was the Christmas videos.”

Spoelstra has been with the franchise for 17 years, which is broken down below:

  • 1995: Joined the team as a video coordinator
  • 1997: Moved to assistant coach/video coordinator
  • 1999: Assistant coach/advance scout
  • 2001: Assistant coach/director of scouting
  • 2008-09 Season: became head coach

As you can see, Spoelstra has advanced up the ladder quite impressively over the years. I don’t think Wade’s comment is a big deal, as he said it during the championship celebration — a happy time. Had Wade said that after a loss to the Thunder, then it would probably become a much bigger deal.
