The same day he was mocked in a video by The Basketball Jones that went viral on the internet, forward Chris Bosh had his biggest game since joining the Miami Heat. Bosh had a season-high 35 points, going 12-for-17 from the field and 11-for-11 at the line. It seemed like getting Bosh involved early was part of the Heat’s gameplan as Chris scored the team’s first eight points of the contest and 14 of the squad’s 27 points in the first quarter.
Unfortunately, with the way things are going for Bosh, he can’t seem to do anything right. After the game he was interviewed by ESPN’s Heather Cox and made comments that would leave anybody questioning his motivation, as Mr. Padres Lakers informed us. Here’s how the exchange went:
Heather Cox: Coach Spoelstra said over the last three days it’s been like training camp, really taken you guys back to the beginning. What was the biggest message he sent during those three days of hard practices?
Chris Bosh: The practice — we got back to getting after it again. I guess he felt that he was loosening it up just a little bit too much and he knows that he has to meet us half way. He wants to work, we want to chill, but we’re going to have to work in order to get everything down and get our timing down and get our chemistry down.
The coach wants to work but the players want to chill. You think you would ever hear that coming from the Celtics or Lakers locker room? I can’t even believe some of the stuff that comes out of this guy’s mouth. It seems pretty obvious that he wasn’t ready for the big time. Maybe he’ll be adjusted in a few months, but things have been difficult to start the year.
