Pat Riley had nothing but good words to say about the head coach of the Miami Heat Erik Spoelstra.

Riley, the president of Miami, believes Spoelstra will be inducted into the Hall of Fame when he retires from the NBA.

“Spo was the coach of the year, for me. He will be a Hall of Famer one day,” Riley said, via Tim Reynolds of The Associated Press.

Spoelstra has been the head coach of the Heat since 2008. He has made five NBA Finals appearances and has won the title twice (2012, 2013).
