Some pretty "big" words from three guys who between them have one NBA championship in a combined 21 seasons.

LeBron James probably didn't know where he was last night.  He left a real town, with real people, to attend what looked like a Hannah Montana concert with 15,000 of Miami's fairest weather fans attending.

And Riley's centers weren't just centers—he had Hall of Famers Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (Los Angeles), Patrick Ewing (New York), and Shaquille O' Neal (Miami). In Miami he had two Hall of Fame centers, and he needed Alonzo Morning to lock down the championship over the Dallas Mavericks.
