-NEW YORK (AP) - Miami Heat President Pat Riley has been fined $25,000 by the NBA for being too clear that he’d eagerly welcome a reunion with LeBron James. The league said Riley violated its anti-tampering rule with his remarks during an interview Friday on Dan Le Batard’s radio show. Riley said he would “leave the key under the doormat” if James called and said he wanted to return to Miami. James led the Heat to two NBA titles and four straight appearances in the finals before returning to Cleveland in 2014.
