UT’s Jones To Be At NBA Finals Game 7 To Support Heat’s Spoelstra

butch-jones-tennesseeTonight in Miami, Tennessee football coach Butch Jones will be on hand for Game Seven of the NBA Finals between the Heat and Spurs.  If he’s lucky maybe he’ll get to sit next to Johnny Manziel.

Jones and Miami coach Erik Spoelstra struck up a friendship after meeting through their shared agent, Trace Armstrong.  Jones, sounding a bit like someone from an eHarmony ad, had this to say of the pair’s relationship:

 

“We really hit it off.  We started to build a relationship and that trust factor.  We found out we believe in a lot of the same core values and principles about motivating and developing your team from a leadership standpoint.  And then we just kept talking and talking.”

 

Jones sat courtside last year as the Heat captured the NBA crown in five games versus Oklahoma City.  Then he was taken into the locker room for the postgame celebration.  Tonight, he’ll once again be flown into town as a guest of Spoelstra.  If he gets to take part in another locker room celebration this evening he’ll be well on his way to becoming the official good luck charm of the Miami Heat.
