MIAMI — Pat Riley and the Miami Heat are continuing their ongoing series of military tributes.
The Heat held a clinic for children from military families at the U.S. Southern Command today, with many team executives and assistant coaches taking part in the event. The team has recognized military personnel regularly since 2006, even holding training camp last season at a pair of U.S. Air Force installations.
Riley, a native of Schenectady and former Linton High School basketball and football standout, did not offer any specifics on the state of the NBA lockout, other than saying he’s “waited long enough” for it to end. The NBA is proposing a deal that would allow for a 72-game season starting Dec. 15, and players are expected to decide to take it or leave it by early next week.
