Win a couple championships and the basketball world will completely change their perception of you.  This applies not only to LeBron James, but also his Miami Heat head coach, Erik Spoelstra.  At the onset of his career coaching Miami's Big 3, and the team semi-stumbling out of the gates, there were rumblings that franchise president, Pat Riley, would take over the team as he did for Stan Van Gundy

Three straight Finals appearances, and two straight titles later, Spo is considered one of the best bench captains in the game.  Looking to add as much stability to the team as possible before James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh can become free agents, Miami has locked Spoelstra down with a contract extension

 

Two-time NBA championship coach Erik Spoelstra is finalizing a multiyear contract extension with the Miami Heat, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

Spoelstra could’ve become the most sought free agent to hit the coaching market since Phil Jackson, and likely staved off a bidding war next summer by choosing to re-sign with the only franchise he’s ever known.
