Miami Heat president Pat Riley has made it a habit to lay-low until the post-season since he became a full-time executive.

The man who has done everything in basketball, says keeping LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh together is very plausible.

The concern has always been the financial reality of making that happen when all three players can opt-out of their current deals after the 2013-14 season.

Riley told ESPN that Heat owner Mickey Arison can find a way to keep his stable in place.
