Pat Riley intends to remain in control of the Miami Heat front office indefinitely.
"I'm 77 years old and right now I can do more pushups than you can do right now." Riley said, while challenging a reporter to a pushup contest. "If you want to go to the mat, let's go."
The Heat finished the regular season with the best record in the Eastern Conference and reached Game 7 of the Conference Finals.
"I definitely feel an obligation to finish this build," Riley said. "And so if we're three years into this build -- then I don't want to do another three years of just building this team. I think we're in that window of internal improvement. We got a great, great, great player in Jimmy Butler, we know that.
"We have a lot of real experienced veterans and so we put together a team that got to the Eastern Conference finals and it was bitter, it was a bitter loss. The dragon hasn't actually left my body yet from that loss. I was stunned, I was frustrated, I was angry, I was all of those things for the last week and now I'm beginning to move on past all of that, so I haven't given that any thought at all."
