Phil Jackson foresees a coaching change in Miam

If the ugly losses keep washing ashore on South Beach, Phil Jackson thinks a coaching change will take place for the Miami Heat. Picked to win the NBA championship by Las Vegas oddsmakers almost immediately after they brought LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade into the same locker room, Miami has struggled mightily, sitting at a forlorn 8-6 after a stunning 93-77 loss at home Monday against Indiana. “I don’t think it’ll happen like we’re talking about it tomorrow or anything like that,” Jackson said of the Heat bringing Pat Riley down from the front office to replace Erik Spoelstra. “But I think eventually if things don’t turn around, the weight’s going to fall there where, ‘We were promised this successes and we were hoping for it’ and I think there’ll be a real drive for the players to have some kind of change. It’s easier to change coaches than it would be to change teams after they made all those player adjustments. ” — LA Times
