When the Miami Heat
torpedoed Stan Van Gundy
for Pat Riley
, they weren't just getting a guy who had already coached the Heat to four consecutive first round playoff losses (as the higher seed) followed by back-to-back sub-500 seasons (36-56 and 25-57 respectively). They were getting a guy who wants to incorporate sumo wrestlers into team practices
.Sumo wrestlers + Basketball = Genius!
Mabye Riley's just kidding around, or maybe this is his subtle way of criticizing the refs for allowing opposing players to "manhandle" the monstrous behemoth that is Shaq
. Who knows. I don't know if they Heat are any better under Riley, but they're more entertaining. I guess.
