    Ironically, years back when coach jaworski of the philippines asked the same favor from then coach pat riley, his reply was..

    "I don't even let my wife watch our practice."

    That's a polite way of saying it's a hassle.

    I think I remember when Pat Riley said that a few years ago. For all he's done in the NBA, that still such a dick move though.
    Then he didn't want to coach the Heat during the years post-Shaq pre-Lebron because he wanted to "scout players"......:rolleyes:

    It's a hassle. They need to plan an activity itinerary, provide hospitality, effectively take out several days from their own business and they're not getting compensated for it.

    Good for him, I remembered when he went to the Philippines and said that he'll try to bring James and Wade one day. So far James had visited the country once.
