Vote: Is Pat Riley planning a coup?

Where there is smoke, there is fire. But where there is Heat, will someone get fired?

The Miami Heat spent the offseason adding roster parts and fighting off rumors that team president Pat Riley would dump head coach Stan Van Gundy (right) and return to the bench. But Ric Bucher's latest column suggests that while Van Gundy is still on the job, Riley's shadow continues to loom large in the background.

So will Riley take the reins before the end of the season? Did Miami make the right moves in the offseason? And who is the favorite in the Eastern Conference? Vote, SportsNation!
