David Fizdale's relationship with LeBron James has been great since day one. He was an assistant coach to Erik Spoelstra while LeBron was in the Miami Heat, developing a good friendship with the King. No wonder he defended Fizdale when he was fired by the Memphis Grizzlies.

Well, if Bron has his back, Fizdale has LeBron's, as he recently demonstrated during an appearance on Showtime's 'All the Smoke,' Fizdale talked about Bron, what he learned in Miami and wishing that when he's career is over, people will see him as what he is, one of the greatest players of all time. Fizdale reveals his desires for Bron once he finishes his career, which is that he gets all the credit he has earned over these years and people don't seem to acknowledge.

He also talked about the things that James learned in Miami and how that changed his career.

“The biggest thing he learned in Miami is to stop giving a f**k. That’s hard to do when so many people are talking about you… This dude was a 9th grader on Sports Illustrated. He was supposed to be the best player to have ever played the game, and that was on his head from that day on. And he hasn’t disappointed.”

“From the ninth grade. We’ve all seen this movie. This dude was a ninth-grader. He was on Sports Illustrated. He was supposed to be the best player to have ever played the game, and that was on his head from that day on. He hasn’t disappointed.”

Bron is ready to continue his good moment with the Lakers after winning the NBA championship this past season. James is ready to defend his crown and the rest of the teams will have a hard time trying to dethrone him and Anthony Davis.
