Phil Jackson isn't the first to raise the specter of Pat Riley stepping in for Eric Spoelsta if the Heat continue to struggle, and he surely won't be the last. Jackson's suggestion that the stars themselves will go to Riley and ask him to take over is one possibility. For what it's worth, I have a friend who is a neighbor or Riles' in Malibu, and my friend agrees that Riley will step in if things aren't going well - not because anyone asks him, but because he's got too much of his legacy on the line with this team. He's the mastermind that brought it all together, and now he needs it to work - so he won't allow Spoelstra to screw it up. Stay tuned.
