Despite being one of the youngest coaches in the NBA, at just 42-years-old, Erik Spoelstra has already won two NBA championships and is now finalizing a multi-year extension with the Miami Heat.
 
As a disciple of Pat Riley, Spoelstra preaches defense to a team without a legitimate shot blocker by having one of the best perimeter defenses in the game. And much like Phil Jackson, Spoelstra has proven that he can bring superstars together by placing a NBA championship above their egos. A task that even the best coaches have miserably failed at.
 
The terms of Spoelstra's contract remain undisclosed, but will be made known towards the beginning of the season. However, expect Spoelstra to be the Miami Heat coach for many more years to come.
