MIAMI (AP) — Heat President Pat Riley says Miami is ready for the offseason and the challenge of keeping LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh together going forward.
Riley opened his season-ending news conference Thursday saying that he was angry about what he calls a lack of perspective about the Heat, who have been to the NBA Finals in each of the last four seasons and won two of the last three championships.
James, Wade and Bosh can all become free agents this summer.
Riley points out that winning makes everything easy and says, "What really cements a forever bond is going through what we went through this year and staying the course."
