Boxer Manny Pacquiao is going to be coaching the Kia team when the Philippines Basketball Association opens play this fall. That deal was announced earlier this week.
Kia is a new team in the league, and basketball is wildly popular already in the Philippines. There's also a huge NBA and Miami Heat following in the country, in part because Spoelstra is of Filipino heritage.
Spoelstra says: ''Well, I'm not taking a boxing job.''
