Heat coach Erik Spoelstra, now a master of delivering Pat Riley one-liners, got to the point quickly.
“We’re sharpening our weapons for warfare,” Spoelstra said.
The Heat begins training camp on Saturday and Friday was the team’s official “media day.” Dozens of reporters packed the Heat’s interview room at AmericanAirlines Arena to hear Spoelstra, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh talk about defending their NBA championship.
“This team was built for something bigger than just a one-year run," Spoelstra said.
Interestingly enough, Spoelstra refused to use the word “repeat.” He only said that his team’s goal was to win another championship.
"I'll roll with it," Wade joked. "He's our leader. Whatever he says."
