08:14 AM ET 06.25 | Pat Riley isn't much for lingering on the successes. Riley likes the storm. Needs it. He is truly terrible at being satisfied. He doesn't trust the calm. He wants the water rising and the kingdom on fire, and he'll make it so even as everyone is floating and feeling safe. ... "I'm past Thursday night," he says. "It is over. We've got the draft coming up." So you aren't like Wade, who has printed up Team No Sleep T-shirts while careening between South Florida parties? "I'm going to put out Sleep Management T-shirts," Riley says. "We've got a championship in our back pocket. Just one. One of the things you don't want to do after it is in your back pocket, you don't want to start reminding everyone how you did it."

QUOTE(#6):

No more to go.Riley completed his mission to get 7 rings. He has one as a player, plus 4 as coach of the Showtime Lakers in the 80's, plus 1 with the Heat in 2006, followed by 1 this year.

Good comment, but you shouldn't confuse all these youngsters on FN with facts. Riley is one hell of a good basketball man!!!
