Pat Riley Once Was So Mad At His Players That He Required Surgery Afterwards
Udonis Haslem and Dwyane Wade spent 15 years together with the Miami Heat. Over that time, they’ve become close friends and won three championships.
When you’re teammates for 15 years, you obviously have plenty of legendary stories to share. So when Wade and Haslem hopped on an Instagram Live together a while back, it was epic.
One story though was too funny to not share. After a horrible first half, Miami Heat president, Pat Riley was so mad that he cussed out the players and kicked the door, which led to him requiring hip surgery:
“I don’t remember what game it was, but he [Pat Riley] came in at halftime and he got mad. He cussed us out and he kicked the door, and we ain’t seeing [Riley] for about two weeks, so the next thing we found out is that he had hip surgery.”
