Five Reasons Why Miami Heat Fans Shouldn’t Panic


3. Pat Riley

NBA: Miami Heat-Press Conference

With Pat Riley running the show, the Miami Heat are never at risk for a meltdown. Riles successfully won the biggest free agency period in NBA history, and more recently, he averted catastrophe by snagging Chris Bosh before he could leave for  the Houston Rockets. If there’s a move out there, he’ll make it, but if no other options exist, rest assured he’ll still figure a way to adapt.

Take Riley’s instrumental signing of Chris Andersen in January of 2013 for example. Riley took a low-risk high-reward opportunity with the veteran big man by signing Andersen to a 10-day contract in hopes that the team’s rebounding problems and interior defensive issues would be bolstered. Not only was Andersen offered a long-term contract, but “Birdman” ended up being one of the key reasons that the team repeated as NBA champions.

Pat has always been a fighter, and even in defeat, he has always been realistic about what it takes to compete in the association. He’s a man that’s seen many battles in the NBA, and you can bet he’d be telling those fans panicking about this disappointing rut so far to “get a grip.”
