Sacramento Kings assistant coach Jimmy Alapag wasn't going to turn down the opportunity to pick the mind of Miami Heat head coach and fellow Pinoy Erik Spoelstra, when the two crossed paths at the 2019 NBA Las Vegas Summer League.
He was definitely going to take a picture with the two-time NBA Champion mentor too.
Alapag posted his picture on his Instagram account, adding, "Honored to listen and learn more from some of the best minds in the game."
Great seeing 2 time NBA Champion of the Miami Heat Coach Erik Spoelstra here at the NBA Coaches Summit in Las Vegas. Honored to listen and learn more from some of the best minds in the game. #NBA #SummerLeague #LasVegas #CoachesSummit #MiamiHeat #SacramentoKings #Listen #Learn #Grow #Filipinos #Champions ???????????????????????????? @sacramentokings @miamiheat
Alapag, the current San Miguel Beermen assistant and Alab Pilipinas head coach, is helping the Kings as a coaching assistant, after getting the invite from Sacramento team president Vlade Divac.
Spoelstra's Heat improved to 4-0 in all Summer League play after beating the Chinese National Team on July 6 (PHL time). Alapag's Kings meanwhile also beat China, on July 7 (PHL time), and are now 2-2 across the California Classic and the Las Vegas Summer League.
