Heat's Erik Spoelstra takes the high road on LeBron James' departure

By Ricky Yandoli,

Since the LeBron James free agency saga is officially over, Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra made comments on James’ departure from the team. Spoelstra took the high road and did not bash the King.

According to the Sun-Sentinel, Spoelstra accepted what James had decided to do. He added that James should not have any regrets on his decision to go back to Cleveland.

“We don't have any regrets. He shouldn't have any regrets. It was a historic four-year run," Spoelstra stated.

Spoelstra also mentioned that the NBA is constantly changing and players and everyone involved with organizations have to adapt to change. He said change is a part of the NBA.

"This league does teach you that it's inevitable that there's constant change and you always have to continue to embrace change, adapt with change," he said.

Along with Spoelstra, Dwyane Wade spoke highly of James despite him fleeing Miami to return to the Cavaliers. Wade said James made the right decision and James would always be apart of Wade’s family, reports the Associated Press.

“We shared something unique and he will always be part of my family,” Wade said. “LeBron made the right decision for himself and his family because home is where your heart is.”

While many Heat fans feel angry and upset, Spoelstra did not seem to show those same emotions. He is happy with the team’s success during the four-year run they had with James.

Last season, the team was fantastic. The Heat’s record led them to another division title.
