Los Angeles Lakers star forward LeBron James hailed his former team, the Miami Heat, over the franchise’s ability in developing its players.

James wrote on Twitter in reply to Washington Wizards forward Kyle Kuzma: “Facts! Player Development there is damn good!!”

Previously, Kuzma complimented Miami’s famous player development system alongside its culture, which has proven to produce some of the best players in the NBA, such as Dwyane Wade, Shaquille O’Neal, and King James himself, just to name a few.

The 26-year-old then proceeded to list three prime examples of current Miami players that the franchise has discovered and developed, namely Duncan Robinson, Max Strus, and Gabe Vincent.

James’ acknowledgment of the Heat’s player development is probably something that both the franchise and head coach Erik Jon Spoelstra deserved, as saying Erik Spoelstra and his men had a great run this season is an understatement.

Miami racked up a 53-29 win-loss record in this year’s regular season, securing the top spot in the Eastern Conference standings two points ahead of the Boston Celtics and the Milwaukee Bucks. The Heat also recently seized victory over the Atlanta Hawks 115-91 in the team’s first playoff game.

Playing Atlanta, Miami showed its great play on offense, having 52.4% shooting from the field and 47.4% in three-pointers.

From top-to-bottom, the Heat are a well-rounded and high-performing team. They might find themselves in the finals as they already have prior experience with some of the best teams in the East.
