Heat Give Erik Spoelstra A Contract Extension
The Miami Heat and head coach Erik Spoelstra have agreed on a contract extension sources have confirmed. However, sources have leaked this information prior to the team making any sort of official announcement. This news really doesn’t come as a surprise since in the world of professional sports, if you win, you get paid, if you lose, you get kicked to the curb. Spoelstra has won, and even if you want to point to the fact that he won largely because of LeBron James, he nonetheless has done good enough to win 2 straight championships. The team likes him, he likes them, and they are winning titles, which means that extending him is the only sensible thing for the Heat to do.
