“We’re happy to go, we’re excited about it,” Spoelstra said. “You don’t spend any time thinking about it as it’s happening, you’re just trying to prepare your team and make sure you have the best record. Now that it happened, it’s cool. We’ll make the most of it. Our staff is thrilled about it. Our players gave us congratulations afterward. That’s about as rare a thing as you’ll ever get in this league.”

Lebron James shared in his coach’s joy.

“It’s awesome,” James said. “It’s a testament to our coaches’ preparedness. As players we go out there and just try to execute their game plan. We’re happy for them.”

Spoelstra last season became the first Filipino American and Asian American to coach his team to an NBA championship.
