After an offseason in which the team lost the best player in franchise history, Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra finally broke his silence.
Spoelstra hadn’t spoken publicly since the team and guard Dwyane Wade parted ways, but he released a video to the Heat’s website on Tuesday. Last month, Wade decided to join the Chicago Bulls after playing 13 seasons and winning three championships in Miami.
“You learn pretty quickly in this league that your roster is going to change, sometimes your staff changes,” Spoelstra said in the video. “Expectations change. It’s like that every year.”
