Erik Spoelstra named Eastern Conference Coach of the Month

New, comments

The NBA announced earlier today that Erik Spoelstra was named the Eastern Conference Coach of the Month for March.  Spo led his Heat to a 12-3 record and has been getting a bit more praise of late for getting his inconsistent team to suddenly start playing like champions.   Also take into account that he did this in the midst of some pretty big distractions, such as the Rafer Alston situation and Dorell Wright's DUI. 

Coach Spo certainly disserves a lot of credit for the Heat's recent turnaround, and I'm really glad that the NBA acknowledges that.  Way to go coach!
