President Aquino gets own Miami Heat jersey

No, President Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III is not pursuing a basketball career; but yes, he now owns a Miami Heat jersey.

Thanks to Miami Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra who paid him a visit in Malacanang. Reports quoted Spoelstra as saying that the jersey, which bore "Aquino" and "15", was especially meant for Aquino, the country's 15th president.

The Fil-Am coach arrived in Manila along with the Larry O’ Brien trophy as part of the NBA Trophy Tour.

Spoelstra, whose mother Elisa Celino hails from San Pablo, Laguna, is the first Filipino-American head coach in the NBA, and head coach of any North American professional sports team.

Last June, Spoelstra sent Aquino an autographed cap, shortly after his championship win in the NBA.
