At just 42, Spoelstra is just one of eight NBA coaches to win back to back championships.
But the way he sees it, its much too early for him to think about his place in NBA history. According to the Boston Herald via the Associated Press,
he hasn’t even thought about it.
“Not really,” Spoelstra said.
But that’s OK, because there’s plenty of people who have thought about it for him.
“I don’t think that he gets enough credit for his abilities to be able to manage us,” said Heat guard Dwyane Wade. “He does a great job of managing egos. He does a great job of keeping us level-headed. It takes a special guy to have guys of this caliber to all stay on one path and not jump off. That’s his strength, his ability to be able manage this team. That’s his greatness with this unit.”
