– 1st to win a championship as a player, coach, & executive
– 6th highest win % (63.6%) of all-time [min 500 games]
While also making a name for himself as the executive of the Heat, Pat Riley the coach was just as impressive. As an innovator of the game, Riley showed off his versatility from the finesse style of the 1980s Showtime Lakers to a more physical, defensive-minded style with the 1990s Knicks.
