When Pat Riley was recruiting Chris Bosh to the Miami Heat in 2010, he used his own past championship experience as a selling point. Before the meeting between the two sides wrapped up, Riley pulled out his collection of championship rings, and even went as far as to let Bosh keep one of them -- the 2006 championship ring Riley won as Miami's head coach. Bosh reflected on this meeting during his Hall of Fame induction speech on Saturday night. 

"He took out this velvet bag full of championship rings and he dumped them all across the table," Bosh said of Riley. "He picked one up, and he looked me dead in my eyes and he said, 'You give it back to me when we win one together.'" 

Riley's pitch obviously worked as Bosh went on to sign with the Heat, and though the two did indeed go on to win two titles together, Bosh never got around to returning the ring to Riley -- until Saturday night. 

"Now, when I think about it, it was crazy because I hadn't even agreed to sign with Miami," Bosh said. "But that's Pat. And we did win a ring together, two of them, but I never gave back the one he loaned me because for whatever reason I wanted to wait for the right moment. I figured this would be a good moment." 

Bosh then proceeded to return the ring to Riley in what proved to be a very nice moment between the two. Check it out below:

In addition to Riley, three of Bosh's former Heat teammates -- LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Ray Allen -- were also in attendance to show their support. Overall, the night was a memorable one for Bosh, who will be remembered as one of the best players in Heat history.

Chris Bosh on Saturday was inducted into the 2021 Basketball Hall of Fame and he had his friends Dwayne Wade and LeBron James beside him to witness the big moment at Springfield, Massachusetts. The trio played together at Miami Heat and helped the franchise to two NBA titles. On such a big occasion the 37-year-old Bosh remembered former NBA legend Kobe Bryant and spoke about the things learned from his work ethic. 

Chris Bosh in his induction speech said the Legends are not defined by their successes, but on how their ability to bounce back from the failure. The former Miami Heat star during the speech recollected a pre-Olympic encounter with Kobe Bryant in 2008. Bosh played alongside Kobe Bryant on the USA team at Beijing Olympics and remembered an incident he wanted to show leadership as a young player by wanting to be the first at the breakfast table only to see Kobe Bryant already there after finishing his workout.

He said, "That taught me something I've never forgotten: Legends aren't defined by their successes; they're defined by how they bounce back from their failures. And that's what I hope to communicate to anyone watching this, especially to kids, when you look back on my career when you visit Springfield and see my plaque, it's going to seem inevitable that I ended up here, and that's how I felt about my heroes growing up. I thought they were automatically destined for greatness".

Pat Riley has recruited Bosh while coaching at Miami Heat and in order to bring the former Power forward to the team Riley gave away one of the championship rings (2006) won as Miami's head coach. After 14 long years Chris Bosh returning his championship ring to the Miami Heat President (Pat Riley). 

"He (Pat Riley) pulled out every trick you know and it was quite a performance and as I was starting to stand up and leave from the meeting, he pulled out one last trick. He took out this velvet bag full of championship rings and dumped them all across the table and he picked one up, he looked me dead in my eye and he said 'You give it back to me when we win one together'. Now, when I think about it, it was crazy because I hadn't even agreed to sign with Miami. But, that's Pat and we did win a ring together, two of them, but I never gave back the one he loaned me because for whatever reason I wanted to wait for the right moment. I figured this would be a good moment."

Wolff: 'In football they call it a tactical foul'

Sacramento Bee 12 September, 2021 - 01:48pm

No teams in your favorites yet.

MONZA, Italy -- Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff said Max Verstappen committed the equivalent of a "tactical foul" by colliding with Lewis Hamilton at the Italian Grand Prix.

The two championship rivals took each other out of the race on lap 26 when Verstappen attempted to pass Hamilton at Monza's tight first chicane after losing a position in the pit stops.

Verstappen positioned his car on the outside of Hamilton's in the first part of the chicane, but as they reached the second part ran out of room and was launched over the inside kerb.

Verstappen's car ended up on top of Hamilton's, with his right rear wheel making contact with the Mercedes driver's helmet.

"In football, they call it a 'tactical foul'," Wolff said before the stewards deemed Verstappen "predominantly to blame" and gave him a three-place grid penalty for the next race. "He probably knew that if Lewis stays ahead that is the race win possibly."

Asked if that meant he felt Verstappen was entirely to blame, Wolff clarified his stance.

"No I didn't say he was completely to blame or an absolute judgement on the incident, what I said was one could see it as a tactical foul with the bias each of us needs to acknowledge," he added. "We don't want to have situations in the future where one loses a position and the only way of stopping the other one scoring is to take him out.

"It's fierce and it's intense. They need to find a way to race each other."

Wolff pointed out that Hamilton ducked out of a similar situation with Verstappen on the opening lap at the second chicane, when he too could have taken both drivers out.

"I think Lewis gave a lot of space in Turn 4 on lap one and avoided a collision," he said. "Maybe I am more unsportsmanlike than Lewis because I would have ended the race there [for both drivers], at least we would have had less engine mileage.

"What happened is the other way around but without avoiding the contact. This is what we need to avoid in the future, taking each other out tactically because you know you have lost the position."

Red Bull team principal Christian Horner disagreed with Wolff's stance and said Verstappen would not have had time to commit a tactical foul.

"I don't think he's thinking that going through Turn 1 into Turn 2, he's thinking how can he pass the car ahead," he said. "I'd be disappointed if Toto suggest that, but for me it's frustrating as we had a good car today and we wanted to beat them on track.

"We had a difficult pit stop, an issue with the stop so he was held much longer than he should be. So he should never have been anywhere near Lewis, then Lewis had an issue and he should have been well clear of Max, so it put them in a situation racing each other so they're both going to go for it."
