fil-am to coach heat

Props to Erik Spoelestra for becoming the first Filipino-American coach (mother is Filipino, father is Dutch-Irish) in the NBA. He replaces legendary coach and weasel Pat Riley, who remains as team president. Spoelestra joined the Heat 13 years ago- starting as a video coordinator and spending the last 7 seasons as assistant coach. He is now the youngest coach in NBA at age 37. Good luck Erik, you'll need it. The Heat finished the season with the worst record in the league. Hey, if they get Beasly in the lottery and D-Wade gets healthy, Spoelestra better watch out for Riley to ax him like Stan Van Gundy.
