About the Author: Pat Riley, (born March 20, 1945, Rome, New York, U.S.), American basketball player, coach, and executive who was one of the most successful National Basketball Association (NBA) coaches of all time. Riley filed for a trademark on the term three-peat when he was head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers in 1988, even though the team had only two consecutive titles under its belt. That confidence sums up the career and legacy of Riley, one of the most brash, charismatic, and successful figures in the game’s history. When other coaches might have balked at taking jobs in high-profile cities like Los Angeles or New York, Riley made these pressure-filled gigs his calling. In an era when NBA players first achieved true global superstar status, Riley was the rare coach who ascended right alongside them. – Britannica.com
