A Letter from Pat Riley
Welcome to the 2015-16 season! On behalf of our ownership, our players and the team’s front office staff, I want to thank you for being a loyal Member of the Miami HEAT Family.
It’s now been two decades since Micky Arison and this wonderful community welcomed me and my family to Miami. While every year has been different and the results are never guaranteed, our vision has not once wavered. During my tenure here, our organization has had a singular goal each season: to win a championship. This year is no different. With the support of the Arison family and the effort of our Basketball Operations staff, I feel we have assembled a roster that will compete at the highest level under the leadership of Head Coach Erik Spoelstra.
This season is about getting back to great. With our mix of proven All-Star talent and youthful promise, our celebrated championship experience coupled with our unquestionable desire for more big moments, we are poised for a special ride. This is a team you should be excited about!
Over the last 20 years, I am proud of the culture we have established and that extends to our fanbase as well. Miami has become one of the premier basketball cities in the N.B.A. and you are at the forefront of that. Our Season Ticket Members have created an atmosphere inside the AmericanAirlines Arena that is second-to-none. Your investment in this franchise makes you an essential piece of HEAT Nation and we need you to lead the way. You are part of our legacy.
During my nearly 50 years in this league, I have learned that greatness only occurs when everyone involved is focused on one task. You are our partners in this journey. We’re all in this together and I can’t wait to get started.
Thank you so much for your continued support
LET’S GO HEAT!
