LeBron James did not receive Pat Riley's now infamous end-of-season press conference especially well, according to multiple sources.
"I think we need to have a perspective about things," Riley said to the media. "I think everybody needs to get a grip—media, Heat players, organization, all of our fans—we got to get a grip on greatness and on teams. I've been here for 45 years in the NBA, and I've witnessed dynasties, I've witnessed great teams. The '80s Lakers, five championships in 12 years. So what does that mean? Seven times they didn't win. In that run, they didn't win. You got to deal with it, you got to come back."
James is currently deciding between re-signing with the Miami Heat or returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
