Coach Erik Spoelstra and Miami Heat are NBA Champs. Again.



Gotta give it up... Whoever you root for, some congratulations are in order for coach Erik Spoelstra, who led the Miami Heat to their second consecutive NBA championship. The Heat beat the San Antonio Spurs in Game 7 of Finals, 95-88: LeBron James, Heat beat Spurs for second straight NBA title.

Spoelstra is the first Asian American head coach (he is Filipino American) in the history of the four major American professional sports leagues, and the first Asian American head coach to win an NBA championship -- and now the first Asian American head coach to win back-to-back championships.
