— Miami Heat President Pat Riley sold his bayfront mansion for $16.8 million last March, and it's all being torn down, according to a story on the Miami Herald's website.

The former Linton High School basketball standout's 12,856-square-foot house has a theater, wine cellar, library, and a sprawling pool with waterfalls and an aqua bar. But the buyer is more interested in the Biscayne Bay lot than the home, and he plans on tearing the structure down.

For more, including photos, see the Miami Herald story.

Riley coached the Los Angeles Lakers to four NBA championships and coached the Miami Heat to one championship.

pat is your typical snob forgetting about anybody from his past life as a regular person,i wrote him a letter one time and reminded him about my brother who picked him up everyday at his home in schenectady and driving him to litton for classis and my brother waiting for him in the parking lot after classes to bring him home and also congratulating him on his first championship and i never heard from him--you would think that a hometown guy takeing time to write you a letter by long hand no less would consitute a reply of at leaest thanks---
