Erik Spoelstra’s Wife Posts Inspiring Message Before NBA Finals (PICS)

For the first time since LeBron took his talents away from South Beach, the Miami Heat are set to begin their quest for another NBA Finals championship.

Miami, which has three NBA championships – one with Dwyane Wade and Shaquille O’Neal and two with Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh – once again have the decks stacked against them as they face the mighty Lakers that bolster LeBron James and Anthony Davis.

Ahead of the NBA Finals, Erik Spoelstra’s wife, Nikki, took to Instagram and posted a heartfelt message.

“A virtual kiss to my husband. Congratulations Miami HEAT! Eastern Conference CHAMPIONS! All of #HEATnation is so proud of you. Your families are proud of you. To all the players, coaches, and staff- you are truly amazing and your hard work is paying off. This playoff run has brought so much joy to our city and to HEAT fans all over the world. Incredible. But this isn’t over… here we come NBA FINALS!

To My Love, Erik: You. Amaze. Me. I love you… WE love you… and we are cheering for you every day. Go DADDY!” she wrote.

Game 1 of the NBA Finals is set to tip off at 9 p.m. E.T.

#TRANSFORMATIONTUESDAY!! Hi friends! Okay so here are some pics of my fitness journey since having baby #2, better known as Dante! A few things I want to touch on: • 1) I am not disappointed in my Before pics. This is my body and I’m proud of the stages it’s been through. Please don’t confuse yourself by thinking I lack unconditional self-love, or that I “feel pressured by society” because I like to be fit 🙂 I like what I like. For myself. • 2) I’m not posting these pics to fish for compliments. I’m posting them to show other women, especially mamas, that our bodies can change if we want them to and if we practice healthy habits. I realize there are legitimate health limitations out there, which I thankfully do not have. • 3) I’m proud of myself. And really that’s all that matters. • 4) Shaming/negativity of any kind isn’t tolerated here and y’all know I’ve gotta major Kendall girl attitude so feel free to not say anything if you’re one of those folks on your high horse offering unsolicited advice and negative commentary 😘 • 5) This is not the place to talk about Coach Spo. • 6) But yeah, love and light babes! Love and light. • 7) Comparison pics taken we’re taken in natural light and are completely unedited. Before pics were taken on January 20th (I had Dante on Dec 4) and the After pics were taken this morning, August 25th. There are some extras at the end. • 8) Lastly, I have a tribe of women cheering me on. Unni Greene @unnigreene is my trainer. @paigeamnefernandez got me on my health kick. And I have a team of incredible women who help me make healthy mind+body choices every day. You know who you are. I love you. • 9) No for real, lastly… I’m cheering you on. I believe in you. You are amazing. #nikkispoknows
