The Miami Heat’s head man is what most people would call a gambler. In Pat Riley‘s defense though, gambling is when you have an equal shot at losing as when you do winning, or at least unless you are in Las Vegas, Atlantic City, or any other of the major casino hubs around the globe.
In Riles’ case, he only plays the game when the cards or deck is stacked in his favor. So in fact, he isn’t a gambler at all. He is more of what they would call a sharp in the world of “sports gaming and wagering”.
