If you accept Riley's argument about the importance of the draft why just this year? Derrick Rose, Michael Beasley or whoever the next couple of picks would be (maybe Roy Hibbert, DeAndre Jordan or another big?) may be more interesting than watching the HEAT lose but should he not be interested in it most years?
He is taking time off because he is tired of losing. Otherwise he would take interest whenever he has a high first rounder.

How often do the heat get a lottery pick? that should answer your question about Riley's argument.
