Pat Riley Rumors
Manny Navarro: I’ve also been told by a #Heat spokesman Riley reached out to Bosh’s agents and manager and heard nothing back.
Cleveland’s LeBron James took what will be perceived as a jab at Pat Riley, saying Tuesday of Chris Bosh: “(I was) pretty surprised a little bit to hear that the team is just done with him, and then to come out and say it. It’s not like I’ve been there, to know exactly what’s going on in the interior. So I’ve only seen it from the exterior like the rest of us. So, um, I just wish the best for him and he has my support.” Riley said Monday that he does not expect Bosh to play for the Heat again.
But Riley said a plan of “succession” is needed: “I think that’s important. I want to make sure that Micky is comfortable with everything before I make that decision. We’ve had a discussion about that. And when you’re 71 years old you have a right to talk about that with you boss. “I’m not going to leave this damn thing until we have the right people running it. I think I could right now and there would still be the right people running it. But I think we’re one person short probably. The one that knows as much as that game out there as he does about this stuff right here.”
