DJ Khaled Massages Miami Heat Coach Erik Spoelstra And It Rubs Him The Right Way – Yahoo News
DJ Khaled worked up the crowd and rubbed down Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra on Tuesday, providing fan energy that Spoelstra appreciated. (Watch the video below.)
The Miami-based music celebrity was rooting for the Heat from his courtside seat during a rout of the Philadelphia 76ers in Game 5 of their playoff series. He retrieved an out-of-bounds ball in the third quarter and morphed into cheerleader and physical therapist, briefly massaging Spoelstra’s shoulders.
“He’s such a great fan,’’ Spoelstra said, per the Sun Sentinel. “Over the years I’ve said, ‘Hello,’ a few times, but that was a first.”
The move also stirred memories of Drake massaging the shoulders of Toronto Raptors coach Nick Nurse.
Miami now holds a 3-2 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinals.
Nice of Khaled to fulfill a knead.
