If I wanted to take the easy approach, I could just rip Pat Riley apart for having pitch problems and being completely out of tune. But I’m not Simon Cowell. And let’s be honest — there have been far worse karaoke performances by professional athletes and coaches over the years. As you can see from the video above shared by Hot Hot Hoops, the Heat president busted out his rendition of “My Girl” during a charity event in Miami on Tuesday. The full audio of his performance can be heard here.
According to Heat writer Ethan J. Skolnick, Riley offered to donate $10,000 before he began singing if they didn’t make him go through with it. As you can see, the people were not interested in his money (I’m guessing he made a pretty generous donation, anyway). If you ask me, Riley gets the nod over Pau Gasol when it comes to charity karaoke.
