Gregory Crawford On Basketball, For July 20th, 2014

Jon Spoelstra's Thoughts On LeBron--- We have already heard the classy comments of Erik Spoelstra, coach of the Miami Heat about LeBron leaving his team for Cleveland.

But how about the thoughts of Erik's talented father Jon Spoelstra, who has been a top flight executive in the NBA with several teams, considered by many to be the greatest sports marketer of all time and now a highly successful author with many best selling books, including "Marketing Outrageously, Redux" and his latest "The Ultimate Tool Kit."

Obviously Jon knows a thing or two about the NBA for many reasons and Gregory Crawford On Basketball was able tonight to get Jon Spoelstra's first public comments on LeBron going to Cleveland.

"I sit back and think about this and only one thing comes to my mind. For four years I was able to see my son coach the best basketball player in the world and see them go to the NBA Finals four years in a row and win the championship two of those four years," said Jon Spoelstra.

"As a father of a coach, that is as special as it gets. Many people never even make it to the NBA Finals or win a title, so I for sure have no regrets. It was a special time, a special NBA run and to have your son coaching that run is just fabulous."

Now you all know, as I have known for sometime, the entire Spoelstra family is nothing but class always, in addition to being highly successful.
