Jerry West: Miami Heat Capable of Winning ‘Numerous’ Championships

Jerry West, currently a consultant with the Golden State Warriors, envisions multiple NBA title parades taking place in South Beach over the next few years. From Fox Sports: “At 66-years-old, Pat Riley is eligible for retirement, but Jerry West doesn’t believe the Miami Heat president will be going anywhere soon. ‘I was talking to Pat, and I told him, ‘Don’t walk away from something,’ West, the Hall of Famer who called Riley his ‘best friend,’ said Wednesday. ‘I would be shocked if he did (anytime soon) … If I were him, I would stay there and watch them win championships.’ Yes, that would plural. West called the Heat, with stars LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, ‘absolutely’ the best team now in the NBA. And he expects that to continue for years to come. ‘They’ve got two of the three best players in the NBA,’ West said of James and Wade. ‘I think they can win numerous championships.'”
