It’s hard to believe the Heat are falling apart because of Chris Bosh’s injury….Ohhh well, I’ll take it.
Another potential 2012 free agent is off the market. The Miami Heat, concerned he might attract interest from other teams and pleased with his performance, signed coach Erik Spoelstra to a contract extension Friday.
Spoelstra, 41, was entering the last year of his deal after leading the Heat to the NBA Finals last season. Despite intense scrutiny the past year since LeBron James and Chris Bosh joined Dwyane Wade in Miami, Spoelstra has created a strong reputation within the league.
Heat coach Erik Spoelstra has maintained that the Heat’s early-season struggles would make his team more unified. And that seems to have happened between him and star forward LeBron James, but Spoelstra said it took a conversation to get there.
Speaking after Wednesday’s practice, Spoelstra said that he had a conversation with James in early December, in the wake of the swirling controversy generated by a bump between the two in the third quarter of a Nov. 27 loss to the Dallas Mavericks.
