The Game is Not the Same

Stan Van Gundy has resigned as coach of the Miami Heat, paving the way for team president Pat Riley to return. Everyone knew it would happen, so it's a sham for Van Gundy to cite family reasons and for Riley to act reluctant. Apparently Shaquille O'Neal and Alonzo Mourning also wanted Riley to coach. I suppose these inside moves have always been made, but players and coaches alike have more say, and sports gets more exposure.

I just want to see teamwork. Knowing too much about what goes on behind the scenes spoils it for me.

A good coach got hosed. Apparently the rotund SVG couldn't fit in the same building with Riley's ego.
