Former Miami and Orlando coach Stan Van Gundy said there's not a "better coach now in the NBA'' than Erik Spoelstra
“I don’t think he’s gotten enough credit,’’ Van Gundy said. “People look at their talent and discount the job that he has done. I don’t think there’s a better coach now in the NBA. It’s time for him to get his due.’’
Asked to clarify, Van Gundy didn’t say Spoelstra is the best coach in the NBA. But he said there are five or six guys at the top and Spoelstra is one.
“I think he’s a good friend,’’ Spoelstra cracked when told what Van Gundy had said. “Stan I go way back. Thanks, Stan. That’s what makes him awesome.’’
