Sure, Erik Spoelstra can't get out on the court and actually rebound or hit shots for the Heat.
He can, however, make adjustments to the Heat's game plan, and he's yet to do that. That's exactly why with every Heat loss, his head coaching seat gets a little hotter.
Inserting Udonis Haslem into the starting lineup doesn't qualify as getting creative. With the talent he has at his disposal, there's no way the Heat should've already lost 12 games at this point in the season.
Spoelstra is one of the least creative coaches in the NBA, and he's proving it this season. While he's messed around with the Heat's lineup a little bit, he hasn't made any significant alterations to the Heat's offensive or defensive game plans, and that's starting to prove costly.
Teams are realizing that the way to beat the Heat is to get the ball into the paint, forcing the defense to collapse, then finding shooters on the perimeter. Spoelstra hasn't made any defensive adjustments to try and stop that, and unfortunately, his lack of creativity his holding the Heat back.
You could argue that with LeBron, Wade and Bosh, the importance of a head coach is slim-to-none. But in reality, a coach's perspective from the sideline is integral to fine tuning a team's weaknesses.
Spoelstra's unwillingness to change isn't fine tuning the Heat's weaknesses. Instead, it's putting them under the magnifying glass, and if that continues to happen, the Heat's chances of repeating are about as good as me getting a shot at ever having a career in the NBA.
