"It's a reversal of what used to happen. [Erik Spoelstra] gets up at 5 a.m., now and goes to Dunkin Donuts and I don't. I get up at 11 o'clock and walk into the office with [general manager] Andy [Elisburg] and [CEO] Nick [Arison] and we sit down and we talk about nothing. We're just going to watch this team win."

— Pat Riley, detailing to Shandel Richardson of the South Florida Sun Sentinel how much radder it is to be the president of the defending-champion, repeat-title-favorite apparent juggernaut he built rather than to actually coach the Miami Heat. Being the boss has its perks, and getting to sleep in before strolling into the office to just watch LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh be awesome seems like a pretty good one.
