The Future for the Heat is Chilly, But Not as Cold as Pat Riley

2015-16 brought lots of promise for the Miami Heat, they pushed the Raptors to seven games in the Conference Semi’s, were cautiously optimistic about the potential of signing Kevin Durant, but had a few question marks heading into the offseason, namely what would happen with Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade. Pay Riley really blew it with this Wade situation. The Heat weren’t going to truly contend for the Eastern Conference Championship with or without Wade, so why not give him a legacy deal ala Kobe Bryant and let him ride off into the sunset with Coach Spoelstra and Riley while still, likely, making the second round of the playoffs?
