Pat Riley, I couldn’t have done it without you. You pushed us and you pushed us and you really pushed us.
Our team was so crazy, I remember coming in and saying, ‘Pat, the guys are partying on the beach and you got us practicing at 10.
Can you please move it back to 12?’
And he did and we went on the road and we was able to win, but you know, Pat, a lot of people think we have problems.
We don’t have problems. I love you, and I respect you.
Pat, a lot of people think we have problems. We don’t have problems.
I love you. I respect you. I respect this organization.
The day you decided to take over [as coach], I knew we were going to win.
This man will do anything for this organization.
