Looking back on last year’s free agency and “The Decision,” do you look back and think it could have been done differently or do you just own up to it? Chris Bosh: “I say you own up to it. We all make mistakes. I think anybody would be kidding themselves if they thought they were perfect at anything.
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: So, Chris Bosh believes LeBron James made a mistake with The Decision.
Well, left-handed power forwards in glass houses shouldn`t throw stones, right Bosh?
In an interview, Bosh indirectly said James slipped up last summer by announcing on ESPN he was ‘taking his talent to South Beach’ and leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers for the Miami Heat.
James admitted as much last year, although he couldn’t, or wouldn’t, say what he’d have done differently.
Equally as damaging to the Heat was Bosh, James, and Dwyane Wade’s collective decision to announce their arrival the way teams celebrate a championship.
The Three Kings held a massive party, and acted more like rock stars than NBA superstars. A sold out stadium of Heat faithful cheered. To be fair, James was the one who predicted multiple championships.
Bosh`s arrogance at this pre-emeptive celebration - along with James and Wade’s surliness - turned off fans outside Florida and solidified the Heat’s status as villains.
From that moment the Heat was public enemy number one. And they have yet to get the bulls-eye off their back.
