Pat Riley Enjoying Miami Heat Success from Afar

[Sun-Sentinel]

MIAMI — For Pat Riley, it’s sort of a role reversal.

He recently received a text message from Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra at 3 a.m. It read: “I’m jealous.”

The fact Riley was comfortably sleeping at home while Spoelstra was probably on a flight home or breaking down film was another reminder why he left coaching. He can now sit back and enjoy the team he has built.

“It’s a reversal of what used to happen,” said Riley, now the team president. “(Spoelstra) gets up at 5 a.m., now and goes to Dunkin Donuts and I don’t. I get up at 11 o’clock and walk into the office with (general manager) Andy (Elisburg) and (CEO) Nick (Arison) and we sit down and we talk about nothing. We’re just going to watch this team win.”
