    I'm not even sure what the hell he is talking about. But it does irk me to no end when somebody comes out and acts clueless about his role in a situation like this. Really Riley, of course he made sure dwade had signed the contract before he made his cry me a river speech.

    Riley is a tool.

    Riley is a winner, but he didn't have to act like a little b**** to a Heat legend. Wade means more to the Heat than Riley.

    His attempt at diplomacy here was a joke. Just tell the truth, the situation didn't suit a reunion.

    Wade is not blameless either. He's not a cornerstone, why does he expect to be treated like one? I hate when players expect ultra high treatment just because of their ego.

    It's never been a secret that Riley's a scumbag.

    He gets results.

    Meh in CF people are always talking about how nobody wants to come to Houston because Morey treats his players like assets right?

    Well assets are valuable so they are treated well, in this case Riley is clearly a scumbag and Machiavellian, he uses players up then kicks them to the curb when they no longer have any value. Morey and Alexander renegotiated Harden's contract when they didn't have to as a gesture of good will, Riley slapped Dwade in the face with a lowball contract and basically said "don't let the door hit you on the way out".

    Dwade has done more than Riley ever has for the Heat, he made Miami relevant again, he was the closer for their first ring and it was his friendship that finally convinced Lebron to go over there and win a couple more. On top of that, he gave up millions and took a discount every time so the Heat can put better talent around him. Now he's clearly not as good as before they won't even give him decent money in a year guys like Ryan Anderson are making 20M lol, and what's even crazy is Riley didn't even bother to meet with him and give him the respect he deserved. If I was a player this is the type of GM I would stay away from, Riley isn't even grateful for what Wade and Lebron has done, according to Heat PR their stance is Lebron won his rings because of Miami and Dwade took his discounts because if he didn't he wouldn't make so much money in endorsements. I mean wtf how big is your ego to be saying **** like this?

    Riley is the kinda douche that would retire a number in Miami for a player from another franchise.

    He's the only reason the Heat have any titles. '06? Prime Wade. '12-'13? LeBron only came to Miami because Wade was here.

    It's definitely arguable that Wade isn't a cornerstone any more - but to be fickle over a couple of million dollars for the best player in the history of your franchise? Ridiculously bad business.

    It's not as though Wade was asking for the moon.

    Wade in 2006 finals was the reason the heat beat the mavs. Guy put Miami on the map. Riley doesn't give a crap unless it's his boy Magic.

    Pat Riley is really too much like a mob boss, from that slick hair, to his look to the way he talks in public and negotiates. Both sides were acting with big egos, but Riley is a proven a-hole in that regard. People who have respect for him just because of they won some trophies in Miami and his track record as a coach are just silly. Riley might be a winner, but it's clear he's not a great GM that people made him out to be and for all the **** Morey gets, Riley is way worse but because of his contribution to the NBA over the years, nobody has the balls to really call it like it is. He should be flamed for the way he dealt with Lebron and now even more.

    Can't the same be said for Wade?

    Dude left the city that drafted him, loved him, surrounded him with the talents needed to win a ring "solo", and he just leaves over a couple million dollars?

    Wade has made his sacrifices with money plenty of times for the Heat throughout the years. He has already cemented his legacy with championships, so he should be rewarded now with a contract for all the sacrificing years. I think someone said Wade has never been the highest paid Heat player in a single season in his career.

    The same with the Lakers thanking Kobe with that huge 2 year contract at the end, the Heat should've done the same with Wade.
