Bosh: ‘I’ve never tried to fit’ with LeBron or Wade
It was never a show of disrespect toward Bosh, but a way for James and Wade to display the friendship they had built over the years. For Bosh, it was an easier way to distinguish his preference of standing alone. "With me, I’ve always just been different," Bosh said. "I’ve never tried to fit in. I’m one of the fellas, great. I get along with everybody, great. But if I’m going to read my book, I’m going to read my book and this is what I’m doing."
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: The Miami Heat doesn’t care if Chris Bosh is his own man. They don’t care if he’s one of the ‘fellas’ -or not. And they don’t care if he conducts interviews with LeBron James and/or Dwyane Wade.
They care about one thing: his play. That is all.
If Bosh produces, the Heat will be tough. They’ll likely win the Eastern Conference and stand a good chance at capturing the NBA Title.
If Bosh falters, the Heat is beatable. Their half-court sets become predictable. Opposing defences will cheat on James and/or Wade with little or no repercussions.
Bosh is that all-important third scorer. His skill keeps opposing defenses honest, and his length makes him a solid rebounder.
When Bosh is at his best, the Heat can turn to an undersized unit of The Three Kings with two shooters. The most interesting feature of this line-up is when James and Wade runs pick-and-rolls.
All of this hinges on Bosh playing his best. And nothing else matters.
