Erik Spoelstra’s ex-wife fumes over ‘fumble the bag’ trolling after coach’s $120 million extension
Erik Spoelstra’s ex-wife is laughing over criticism that she “fumbled the bag” after the Miami Heat head coach agreed to a record eight-year contract extension on Tuesday worth more than $120 million.
Taking to her Instagram Stories, Nikki Spoelstra re-shared the troll’s “way to fumble the bag” comment before elaborating on how years of “harassment” in the public eye has impacted her emotional health.
“Lol. I’m going to address this comment NOT as it pertains to my personal life choices but as it relates to a general thought process that I believe a lot of people have and that a lot of people have harassed me with over the years,” Nikki stated.
“According to crass, ignorant, uninformed society at large, women can’t ‘win.’

And if a woman chooses to not be with a successful partner, apparently she’s an idiot.
“And no, I won’t ignore it. IgNoRiNg iT (harassment) for years messed with my emotional health and people need to have a better understanding of how their words can affect other people. Not just me. But people. In general. Be nicer.”
Nikki’s remarks came nearly two months after she and Spoelstra, 53, finalized their divorce after seven years of marriage.
