Dwyane Wade says he still hasn’t received Pat Riley’s email

Charlotte Bobcats v Miami Heat

MIAMI - APRIL 8: Head coach Pat Riley looks on as Dwyane Wade #3 of the Miami Heat plays for the first time since injuring his shoulder in February, against the Charlotte Bobcats at American Airlines Arena April 8, 2007 in Miami, Florida.

Pat Riley reportedly never called Dwyane Wade during a free agency that saw the guard leave the Heat for the Bulls.

But the Miami president said in July he was drafting a long email to Wade, presumably fondly recollecting on their 13 years together.

Manny Navarro of the Miami Herald:


It’s a funny thing about phones. Spellcheck sometimes mess up. So, I haven’t received it yet, but I’m sure it’s coming.

I guess Wade has already suffered what he perceived to be a bigger slap in the face from Riley. At this point, waiting a few more weeks – or even months – to hear from his former boss isn’t so bad.
