Default How did Riley do it?

How the hell did Pat Riley pull this one off??? He traded a fatass who no longer has any skills, plus 2 years, 40 million left on his deal for an expiring contract and a guard making 3 million... WOW!

I've been saying this a lot. Coaching my have passed Riley by, but he is still one of the best GMs in the league today. Who would have thought we would trade for, at the time, the best center in the game. Then in 3 years after he begins to decline, and after we got our championship, we trade him for an expiring contract (he's also a great player).

I think Miami is a trade away from having a high quality team that can compete in the playoffs. If they could get a good point guard or big man, then I think they could compete in the East.

Or maybe a draft pick away :)

The heat have a #1 draft pick and cap space. With a key free agent pick up (i''m thinking elton brand) and a good draft (take your pic) I belive we will be back in the playoffs by next year, maybe even going deep. (hey, we went to the second round in wade's rookie year.)
