Tiger Fight，10月29日。最近，热火总裁Pat Riley接受了记者采访，并谈论了热火队文化的渊源。
Riley said that he has paid great attention to body shape since the player era.
"In 1971, Bill Sharman told me that if I want to enter his team, I must be the best physical player in the training camp. He told me that if I can become the best physical player in the training camp - He told me: "Anyway, you won't play, I just want to make sure there are players who are particularly good in size. I can put you on the court, you can withstand fierce fouls from your opponents, and you can defend your opponent's best players. But Pat, you may not have a chance to play. But if you can’t get the best size, you won’t even be able to get in my team.’”
“ 1971年，比尔·沙曼（Bill Sharman）告诉我，如果我想加入他的团队，我必须成为训练营中最好的身体运动员。他告诉我，如果我可以成为训练营中最好的身体运动员，他告诉我： “无论如何，你不会参加比赛，我只是想确保有一些特别优秀的球员。我可以将您带到场上，您可以承受对手的激烈犯规，也可以捍卫对手的最佳球员。但是Pat，您可能没有机会玩。但是，如果您无法获得最佳规模，您甚至将无法加入我的团队。’”
After that season, Riley got a chance to play, averaging 6.7 points per game.
"Since that time, I know what I should do in the summer. I entered the training camp of the new season with my best body shape, and I played well for the next five seasons. So, I brought this concept to During my coaching career."
In the 25 seasons since Riley joined the Heat, the Heat have reached the playoffs 19 times. Among them, the Heat entered the finals six times and won the championship three times.
