David Fizdale doesn’t expect LeBron James to become an NBA head coach in the future.
“No,” Fizdale said when asked about James’ possibly coaching. “He would kill somebody. Perfection is like [his standard]. He wants perfection. I could see him actually owning his own team and doing something like that, but I think [as a coach], he would end up killing a player at some point because they wouldn’t live up to the expectations that he would set forth.”
James has expressed interest in owning an NBA team in the future.
“Yeah, he’s a little right,” James said when informed of Fizdale’s comments. “I don’t have, my patience is not — you’ve got to be very patient as a coach. I don’t think I have that much patience. Not that much.”
Fizdale said he considers James “a one-percentile guy when it comes to basketball intelligence.”
