Miami Heat Coach Erik Spoelstra Says No One Was Crying In Locker Room

Following the Miami Heat’s 87-86 loss to the Chicago Bulls, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra told the media in a postgame interview, “there are a couple guys crying in the locker room right now.”  The imaginary image of Miami’s Big Three crying after failed last-minute shots by LeBron James and Dwyane Wade spread like wildfire through the media. Their fourth straight loss was made worse by Spoelstra’s quote, as the Heat became the laughingstock of the NBA. Of course, Spoelstra tried to backtrack and said no one was “whimpering” in the locker room and even blamed the media for blowing it out of proportion, calling the whole debacle “Crygate.”

Spoelstra said it, not the media. And if they really were crying in the locker room, what are they going to do should they lose game 7 of the NBA Finals?
