Riley became the Lakers’ head coach in the 1981-82 season and ended up winning four titles with the franchise. The duo of Riley and Magic Johnson proved to be a formidable one and those two were a perfect match for each other.

Riley is currently the President of the Miami Heat and he is responsible for putting together the “Big Three.”
