In an interview before the Miami Heat took on the New York Knicks, Wade decided to take a shot at Phil, calling him the ‘Brett Favre of the NBA.’ The reason Wade did this was because Phil has been poking fun at the Heat all season long. His most recent attack was saying the Heat weren’t as good as the Celtics.
Wade didn’t appreciate the Zen Master’s comments; thinks he’s playing mind games so he can take his talents to South Beach next season and coach the Heat. Wade went on record and said:
“I think he wants to coach the Heat when he gets done with the Lakers. It’s all an angle to get over here. He wants to coach us but he can’t coach us.”
Score one for Wade… or score one for the Zen Master? Seems like Phil has been playing mind games with the Heat and Wade was the first to bite.
There have been many rumors swirling on Phil’s future in the NBA. No one knows for certain what Phil’s next move is, not even Jeanie. He said he wants to settle down back in Montana but you will never know what the Zen Master till you see it happen with your eyes.
However, many Heat fans have been throwing around this rumor ever since Phil announced his retirement. They say the Miami Heat will be the “East Coast Showtime” if Phil makes his move down to South Beach.
What do you think Laker Nation? Is Phil going to coach the Heat, or did he get in Wade’s head? Sound off!
