Erik Spoelstra nominated for NBA ‘Coach of the Year’

Fil-Am Coach Erik Spoelstra, who heads the Miami Heat, has been named one of three finalists for the NBA Coach of the Year awards.

The Houston Rockets Mike D’antoni and Gregg Popavich of the San Antonio Spurs are the other two finalists.

This year, Spoelstra and D’antoni were co-recipients of the NBA coaches association’ inaugural Coach of the Year award.

The Miami Heat began the season at 11 and 30 — but Spoelstra’s leadership flipped the team’s record to finish 41 and 41. However, the team missed this year’s playoffs.
