Pat Riley Thinks The Lakers Title Deserves An Asterisk

In the latest episode of 'Sour Grapes' Miami Heat's Pat Riley doesn't want to take anything away from the Los Angeles Lakers recent championship, but he sure is throwing out some decent shade to the California sunshine. 

Riley is quick to point out if Bam Adebayo and Goran Dragic were healthy for the entire series, the Heat would have been able to solve the Lakers. 

Riley had his gums flapping in a season recap with Fox Sports:

They beat us fair and squarely. They were the best team. But there’s always going to be that asterisk, that caveat. If we had Bam and Goran—Goran was our leading scorer in the playoffs—at 100 percent, it could have gone to a seventh game. But I’m not going to look back on it, I’m just going to look at all the positive things. Yes, I would like to see what it would be like with everybody whole. But we’ll get that shot again. I’m just so proud of what our guys did… The Lakers were great; they were a great team and they have the greatest player in the game today in LeBron [James] and Anthony Davis.  

For the full interview, hit play on this bad boy.
