A contrite Riley wishes he'd done more to keep Wade in Miami

MIAMI (AP) A contrite Pat Riley revealed Saturday that he blames himself for Dwyane Wade's decision to leave the Miami Heat, adding that he wishes he could have done more to keep the three-time champion.

Riley, the Heat's president, said if he had the chance, he would have handled Wade's free agency differently. Wade signed a $47 million, two-year deal with the Chicago Bulls earlier this month, leaving Miami without its franchise leader in several categories and sparking a rebuilding project for a franchise that was in the NBA Finals just two years ago.

"I didn't make it happen. Dwyane left and so the buck really stops here," Riley said. "I'm not trying to fall on the sword for anybody. I have great regret that I didn't put myself in the middle of it and immerse myself totally in the middle of it, get in a canoe and paddle to the Mediterranean if I had to."
