The NBA Dribbled Out

I understand Pat Riley is a master-motivator, but as I’ve just mentioned, the Heat already have a lot of pressure on them. Was this new locker-room design really necessary? 
It’s like when Pat Riley guaranteed the Lakers would repeat as champions during the victory parade in 1987. And they did repeat the next year (which hadn’t been done since Russell’s Celtics). But in 1988—after winning that second title in a row—he again predicted a title, and trademarked the phrase three-peat™. The Pistons swept them in the Finals that year.
Is Riley doing it again? Some players don’t respond to pressure, while others do. I think LeBron is in the former category, and Wade is in the latter.
