The School of Pat Riley

August 27th, 2013 by Zach Buckley Leave a reply »
The story of Pat Riley’s life reads less like a biography and more like a collection of short stories from the world’s greatest orators.

This wealth of material can only come from an NBA career that has touched each of the last six decades and spanned the United States. 

However, simply having that wealth of material available and finding ways to put it to good use are two completely different things. 

Here's where the man's brilliance shines brightest, as he's molded those moments into a legendary lesson plan. After learning from some of the game's all-time greats, he went on to master the art of leading others.

Need proof that the man's methods are rock solid? Try perusing through his hardware collection, which features nine championship rings, three Coach of the Year awards and, perhaps its most prized piece, a Chuck Daly Lifetime Achievement award.

Now it's our chance to follow his philosophical path, immerse ourselves in his teachings and uncover the secrets to his success.
