Your Miamiii...

The Miami Heat have beaten the Dallas Mavericks for their first NBA championship, thanks in large part to Dwyane Wade, Shaquille O'Neal, and a ragtag bunch of role players brought in by Pat Riley. I criticized Riley's takeover for Stan Van Gundy, but it clearly motivated the team for this season.

In the end, playoffs are about winning on the field. Yes, Riley came in under questionable circumstances, but he still had to prove he could coach players on the court.

Even though he was going back to Dallas with two chances to win, Riley said, "I packed one suit, one shirt, and one tie," implying Game 6 was all that mattered.

I wonder if he's copyrighted "ReHeat," "ThreeHeat," or "Heatpeat."
