Chris Bosh Disappointed by Air Canada Crowd

A couple of days into Chris Bosh’s ongoing admonishment of an Air Canada Centre crowd that’s been lately too quiet for his rabbit ears, somebody suggested to the resident all-star that perhaps he was misplacing the obligation.

Isn’t it up to the Raptors, who’d lost 11 of their past 16 games heading into last night, to give the loyalists a reason to cheer? Bosh answered in the negative.

"That’s sad," he said. "No matter what happens, we still qualified (for the playoffs) and we still have a chance to finish over .500. . . . Why should people shy away just because we’ve had a tough month. That should be all the more reason to have more support and get us going some more." [Toronto Star]
