Memphis newspaper incorrectly introduces new Grizzlies coach David Fizdale

Knicks, David Fizdale

How do you introduce new Memphis Grizzlies head coach David Fizdale to the city? It would be appropriate to give a great visual before listing some of his accomplishments about why it’s an exciting time for the team. Not even a full 24 hours later, a local newspaper decided to post a headline story with a photo of him in action.

Directly above a captioned quote from Miami Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra, is a photo of Fizdale and Spoelstra working side by side during a game.

That sounds like a great way to introduce your new coach, except there was one problem. The photo featured in the headline was of Spolestra and his assistant Juwan Howard.

This might confuse casual fans who see him in person next season, but cannot recognize who he is.

After 13 seasons in the NBA, and eight with the Miami Heat, you’d think it would be easy to find an accurate photo of Fizdale somewhere on the web.
