CHICAGO – Filipino-American Erik Spoelstra, the most eligible bachelor and winningest coach in the current NBA season, has confirmed reports that 24-year-old Nikki Sapp, a Miami native and a former Heat dancer, has been a constant companion but he would not confirm if she is her girlfriend.

The 42-year-old coach of the defending champion Miami Heat, which has a 23-game wining streak since Feb. Sapp may have accompanied him “to our charity fundraiser, but other than that he is not commenting.” According to the Miami Herald, “the famously private coach recently stepped out with his girlfriend for the first time.[box type=”default” size=”large”] Other than that he is not commenting, spokesman says [/box]“Apparently, Spoelstra has been dating Sapp for nearly two years, but the couple only recently made their relationship public.

The Herald called the Heat coach " notoriously private" and "boyish," while the Sun-Sentinel wrote Spoelstra's big reveal was "so uncharacteristic of him" because he's "steered clear" of such things in the past.

An 18-year-old Sapp started dancing for the team in 2005, while a 34-year-old Spoelstra was serving as an assistant for Pat Riley.

Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra, who’s getting married to a former Heat dancer in July, has already upgraded his living quarters from his bachelor’s condo.

Spo, 45, just plunked down .6 million for a historic house in Coconut Grove, according to property records.

Or, it’s also possible that he is just a private person.

In any event, life seems to be going well for Coach Spo at the moment.

She danced with the squad for three seasons, then left before Spoelstra took over the Heat's head coaching position in 2008.
