The Zenmaster knows all..Phil Jackson has thrown his two cents in regarding the Miami Heat’s early season struggles..Phil believes Pat Riley will eventually take the helm in South Beach and replace Heat coach Erik Spoelstra..Phil was interviewed on Chicago’s ESPN Radio 1000: Waddle & Silvy.”The scenario that sits kind of behind the scene, is that eventually these guys that were recruited — Bosh and James — by Pat Riley and Mickey Arrison, the owner, are going to come in and say, ‘We feel you [Riley] can do a better job coaching the team. We came here on the hopes that this would work,’ and whatever, I don’t know,” Jackson said. “That’s kind of my take on it, is that eventually if things don’t straighten out here soon, it could be the Van Gundy thing all over again.” My Miami tipster believes Riley should be in place by Christmas..we all saw this coming the minute LeBron decided to take his talents to South Beach.To hear the interview click on the link below..It begins at the 1:04 mark. -TO
