Pat Riley is one of the most important figures in the history of the Miami Heat organization. Riley is responsible for Miami’s three NBA titles, being the coach of the 2006 team and the president that pitched in to create one of the most talented teams we have ever seen in the NBA courts.

Riley talked to Eric Reid about LeBron James and Chris Bosh coming to Miami, comparing the pairing with Dwayne Wade to the ‘Showtime’ era of the Los Angeles Lakers.

Riley ushered in the “Showtime” Lakers, along with NBA legends Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar leading them to four NBA titles.
