Miami Heat Coach Erik Spoelstra on EAC and Torres High School


Wearing Jersey # 3 Dwane Wade, wearing jersey # 6 Lebron James, wearing jersey # 1 Chris Bosh, these are the names most popular to be heard when they call the first five line up of the Miami Heat.

But there's someone on the court who often seen the face and heard the name, its the coach, who decides who will shine at the moment of play or who will sit his ass on the bench.

Its like a hero's welcome as they start the day with coach Erik. I don't really know what's going on with that man holding his camera phone looking at coach Erik that way ;-) 


Everybody gathered on the event and give coach Erik a grand welcome. Everybody wanted to participate on the event and some students even have their NBA cares t-shirt to show how committed they are on the program.


You can see here that everybody are thrilled for the event. They all look happy because their classes were already suspended due to the program ;-) kidding aside, they are all thrilled as they gather around their mentor head coach Erik Spoelstra, they can't get enough of him ;-)
