Video: Pat Riley Would Welcome LeBron James Back To The Heat With Open Arms


Miami Heat President Pat Riley says he didn't like the way the LeBron James era ended in Miami, but that he'd leave a "new shiny key under the mat" for LeBron if he ever wanted to reunite with the Heat. 

Riley told Dan Le Batard on his radio show that he's nowhere close to wanting to retire, and is still motivated to win a championship. When talk turned to the Heat's previous championship run, during the team's glory days with 'The Big 3' of LeBron, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, Riley was asked about an alleged key he'd originally promised to leave for LeBron:

Riley said the original key is probably rusted by now, so he'd be happy to leave a new one if LeBron ever wanted to return.
