Default Coach Spo gets ALL the blame

He handled Dallas' zone worse than an AAU coach.

Heat should get Brian Shaw and run the Triangle Offense.

you got a solid big three similar to the 90s bulls: wade as jordan, lebron as pippen, and bosh as rodman and just surround them with good shooters.

Yup, he only managed to get them to Game 6 of the NBA Finals. It's clearly all his fault.

The zone was handled pretty awful, expecially during crunch time. It was usually a Lebron 3 or jumper, Chalmers trying to force the issue, or Wade losing the ball..........and when either of them did not have the ball they were usually just standing in a corner.

There should have been more off the ball movement, pick and rolls, quick passes.......that's how you get at the zone. Nevertheless Dallas looked so comfortable defensively whenever they did run the zone. They knew if the Heat missed they did not have to worry about offensive boards either, they loled at the thought of it even happening.

Getting to the finals and getting to play Game 6 is clearly over-rated.

Spo is about the age of some of the guys on this board. Growing pains with a pretty young coach...

Heat problem was also the minutes of Lebron and Wade....you cant expect guys to play 42-44 mins a game and not lay an egg in the final game.

Wade was gassed after about game 4 end...
Lebron too from the previous series while carrying extra weight.

Jason Kidd said it best...He said they over help and scramble so much he said passing the ball would wear them out throughout the game.

Spo did a great job.

LeBron just decided to defer in the 4th.

Too many jump shots. Too much standing around. It's a combination of Dallas' defense, and the Heat (surprisingly) having no answer. Their offense looked way too predictable too often, considering they have two of the most explosive players on the court. I would have liked to see James pull the ball back a little away from 3 point line when starting the play, exactly like Manu Ginobili does, and give himself more room to get past his man on an isolation play and slash to the rim, shoot, or dish. Instead of getting the ball right at the 3 point line or lower off a pick-and-pop and having no room to create/no room to put the ball down. He's better in the open court, I don't know why it seemed like he let off the gas in the Finals - but I don't think the offensive sets helped him thrive.

The Lakers got killed by their zone too. What do you expect? Best way to kill a zone is offensive rebound like madmen and shoot the lights out, neither of which Miami is good at other than brief stretches in games.

It was mostly Lebron's fault.
