Riley: LeBron 'Completes Tremendous Turnaround' With Gold Medal
Pat Riley and Micky Arison were relieved to see LeBron James win his second gold medal, as well as endure the Olympics without injury.
"I think both Micky and I had a great sigh of relief that he got through the Olympics without getting hurt or anything happening and also winning the gold medal," said Riley.
"It just sort of completes a tremendous turnaround for him. He did it, and he did it by looking at himself in the eye, looking in the mirror, taking stock of what it was that he may not have done last year, on the court, off the court, and this year he had a perfect run.
"We're happy for him. We love him to death, obviously."
The Heat begin training camp during the last week of September.
"We just want him to get home and get some rest," he said. "And in a short six weeks, he's going to be back at it in training camp."
