Pat Riley said he regrets letting Dwyane Wade leave the Miami Heat, acknowledging that he was floored by the superstars decision to join the Chicago Bulls in free agency.Riley addressed Wades departure during a news conference Saturday, one day after the 12-time All-Star officially signed a two-year deal with his hometown Bulls.What happened with Dwyane floored me, Riley said. Im going to miss the fact of what I might have had planned for him and his future and how I saw the end and my thought process in how I could see his end here with the Heat. ... Its my responsibility to sort of make that happen. I didnt make it happen. Dwyane left, and the buck stops here.Wade said last week that a business rift with Riley played a significant role in his decision to end his 13-year career with Miami. Wade helped lead the Heat to three NBA championships and is the franchises all-time leading scorer.Riley, the Heats president, admitted that he was not as involved in the negotiation process as he needed to be in order to retain Wade, who turned down Miamis two-year, $40 million offer earlier this month in favor of Chicagos two-year, $47 million offer.Riley wasnt in New York when the Heat last met with Wade on July 6, only a few hours before he announced that he was picking Chicago. In that last meeting, which was handled by Heat managing general partner Micky Arison and CEO Nick Arison, the teams offer was raised slightly -- though not to the level of what Chicago was able to pay.I have great regret I didnt put myself in the middle of it and immerse myself in the middle of it and get in a canoe and paddle to the Mediterranean if I had to, be in New York when he arrived on the 6th and greet him at the airport, Riley said. I wasnt there in the middle of the negotiation, and thats my job. Its not going to be the same without him. We will forge ahead.Riley said he believes Wades decision wasnt fueled by money, but rather something else.That is where we both failed ... I more than he, because hes the asset, hes the star, hes the face of the franchise, Riley said. I should have done everything that I could have verbally in trying to change his mindset to mine, a big picture, a better picture, or one that I thought would help him.Whether that would have worked is unknown, and irrelevant now anyway. Wade went home to Chicago, and for the Heat its time for the aftermath that follows whenever theres a superstar-level goodbye. Riley has been through it plenty of times before in Miami, whether it was Alonzo Mourning or LeBron James or Shaquille ONeal or Brian Grant or Eddie Jones.This, Riley said, is different.Weve had a tough summer, he said.Riley said he hasnt spoken with Wade since he decided to leave the Heat. Riley has been working on an email to send Wade at some point, and he expects that when they see each other again, a warm embrace will be involved.My thoughts were always to try to make the team better and at the same time try to make sure that Dwyane, over the course of the three, four, five years that he had left in his career, that he was going to get his money, Riley said. He would get it -- but not at the expense of paralyzing our ability to win. If theres anything I could have done better, I would have done it. But right now, theres no do-overs in this thing.Information from The Associated Press was used in this report. Basketball Jerseys Sale .
