I thought the linked article was a great look at the impact the Pat Riley-developed Miami Heat culture had on LeBron James and how the superstar had worked (and struggled) to bring that with him to Cleveland. Some terrific points in here on professionalism, culture, work ethic and team dynamics. Thanks to Dan Gauthier for passing this article along.
“Cleveland is part of the mainstream of the NBA. In Miami, there is one man in charge and that is Pat Riley and everyone falls into line from there. It’s very simplified for you. There is one way to do things, his way.”
