Check and mate. There is a reason by Pat Riley is GOAT. This is how you take care of your own!
The Heat could have given Spo an extension whenever they wanted, but they waited, why? Because Pat was all over it, he knew his boy was going through it. There was no way Pat was gonna give him a big ass contract just for half of it to get swallowed up by his ex-wife. So what did Pat do? He basically said, “just let me know when the divorce papers are signed, and I’ll send you something to cheer you up.”
Additionally everyone is going after Spoes ex for fumbling the bag. I love the internet.
