DANG PAT RILEY! While telling reporters how happy he was to add another former Cat to his roster in Tyler Herro, the Miami Heat president snuck in a shot at Kentucky’s rival, Duke.
“He’s just right on with his attitude and his approach and how much he wants to be a professional. He really is excited to be here too, so we’re happy to have him,” Riley said of Herro, whom the Heat selected with the No. 13 pick.

“It’s not a coincidence anymore that we’re drafting all the Kentucky players,” Riley continued. “Getting rid of the Duke concept. So, that’s enough of that.”
Pat Riley had high praise for Tyler Herro, and takes a shot at DUKE.

This is almost as good as when he reminded a reporter that he played at Kentucky, not Duke, during Justise Winslow’s introductory presser back in 2015:
Winslow is still with the Heat, starting 52 games last season, but earlier this year, opened up earlier about some “dark times” during his early days in Miami. Hmm.
Regardless, Pat Riley for actual President.
