Heated comments

 

Pat Riley and LeBron James already have one thing in common. They’re keeping track of what’s been said about how this Miami Heat team got put together this summer. It seems to be fueling both of them. Speaking at length with reporters for the first time since the Heat acquired James and Chris Bosh to play alongside Dwyane Wade this summer, Riley (pictured right) revealed he thought some critics of Miami’s roster moves should “get a life.” He is also certain it’ll be a motivating point for his team throughout the season. “I know one thing,” Riley said. “We will show up and we will play games. And our team will be ready. And I think that’s the way we can answer all the critics.”
