Topic - Pat Riley
Miami Heat president Pat Riley has a message for all the Miami Heat fans that are already looking ahead to the playoffs and a chance for a third straight NBA championship.
Ed Hookstratten, an attorney who represented a galaxy of entertainment and sports stars including Johnny Carson and Vin Scully during a career of more than 50 years, has died at 83.
The Golden State Warriors have been searching for a suitable backup to point guard Stephen Curry since veteran Jarrett Jack signed with Cleveland as a free agent last summer.
Greg Oden has taken his physical, done a bit of house hunting in South Florida and signed on the dotted line.
Mike Miller was a luxury that the Miami Heat decided they could no longer afford.
When the Miami Heat won their first championship in 2006, then-coach Pat Riley decided to enter the following season without major roster changes.
LeBron James has this summer on his mind, and is already starting to plan for next season.
Hundreds of thousands of fans were expected along the parade route. Some fans began arriving before sunrise Monday, and traffic into downtown was extremely heavy as people hoped to get close enough for a glimpse of the celebration.
The last piece of confetti had landed, the Miami Heat championship celebration was officially over and many in the crowd of revelers were starting to make their way to the exits.
Dwyane Wade was walking down the hallway toward the Miami Heat locker room in the wee hours of Friday morning, still in uniform and fussing with the new championship hat atop his head as his team and their families were in the midst of partying the night away.
Chris Bosh told those Heat fans who had left Game 6 early to stay home, and judging strictly by his line in Game 7, he barely bothered to show up himself.
Other than being widely known by just the first syllable of their surnames, the coaches who will match wits in these NBA Finals may seem like polar opposites.
Miami's Erik Spoelstra wears sharp suits and is a stats guy; San Antonio's Gregg Popovich often skips the tie and would immeasurably prefer to answer questions about wine than anything about himself. Both are intensely private, but even during an NBA Finals loaded with star power — the "Big Three" from Miami, the "Big Three" from San Antonio, a four-time MVP in LeBron James, a four-time champion in Tim Duncan — the coaches will share misery in one way.
When Chris Andersen does something particularly impressive for the Miami Heat, a heavy metal guitar riff blares through their arena. Some children have shown up for games with replicas of his tattoos drawn upon their bodies. Others have gotten their hair gelled and shaped to match his Mohawk `do.
"Look at me, man. I am full of vitality to have some fun," Riley said while standing next to wife Chris at the team's Family Festival charity event. "Six years ago, when I was coaching, I was waking up at 5 a.m. It was dark and I was depressed."
"Before everybody gets excited, we've got another 24 or 25 games," Riley said at a Heat charity function on Sunday.
