You would figure that a NBA coach would be married and have children. And whoever they're married to would be in the same age bracket.
Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra, 42, has surprised many by who he's dating. Spoelstra appeared at a fundraiser Saturday night with his girlfriend, Nikki Sapp. Sapp is a 24 year old former Heat dancer.
An 18-year-old Sapp started dancing for the team in 2005, while a 34-year-old Spoelstra was serving as an assistant for Pat Riley. She danced with the squad for three seasons, then left before Spoelstra took over the Heat's head coaching position in 2008.
Outside of Phil Jackson, no one really knows about who a coach is dating or married to. We all know Phil didn't do too bad (Jeanie Buss) and based on the looks of Sapp, Spoelstra isn't doing too bad either. But that age difference makes you wonder. Oh well. Play on player.

Whiskey Tango tried this before in 2011 and it didn’t work out too well. This time they have a little bit smarter promotion.
The Heat are on an 18 game winning streak and there aren’t a lot of games in the regular season, so this is a more reasonable way to give out free drinks and get some free press.
Here are the details.
The next time the Miami Heat loses a game, we will pay...

Starring as basketball player Jesus Shuttlesworth in Spike Lee’s “He Got Game” in ’98, Ray Allen is still referred to as “Jesus” by his Heat teammates when he gets hot on the basketball court, but Chris Bosh refers to him as something else. The notorious photo/videobomber calls Allen by his birth name, Walter. Unbeknown to most, Ray is actually the middle of Walter Allen...

Ok, world. I think we’ve all had enough of Harlem Shake. Right? I know I have. Enough ‘Div. III Bumblef#ck Tech does Harlem Shake.’ Enough ‘Dementia riddled geriatrics do Harlem Shake.’ Just enough!
And then what happens? Professional sports teams getting involved in this nonsense. Come on, folks. So, the Miami Heat threw their hat in this annoying ring last week. Thankfully...
I am firmly of the belief that the Indiana Pacers are better team now than the team they were when they twice beat the Miami Heat earlier this season. The problem is, this current Heat team is playing out of their minds. Combine that with home court for the Heat and a thirst for revenge -- the Pacers simply had no chance.
Final score, 105-91, and the Pacers never got very close...
!7 years in and Bryant is still going strong.
