Chris Bosh: A story of redemption
I saw this on ESPN, though it was very interesting, I am one of the people who's underestimated Chris Bosh during his time in Miami, but in the big picture he is a top 15 player in the league and a class act.
And just one additional note, I still think Miami doesn't use him correctly. In his last season in Toronto, he shot almost twice as many shots within 3 feet in as he did from 16-23 feet. Ever since he's come to Miami, he's shot just as many if not more shots from 16-23 feet. I know he's playing off Lebron and Wade, but he belongs in the post, he can be an absolute beast down low if utilized correctly.
How bout the heat trade bosh for DMC
I'm a Raptors fan and "HEAT" fans think all he can do is shoot jumpers, Erik should let him show off his fabulous post game and touch that he has instead of only jumpers, it would make him way more effective. It a reason why he averaged an efficient 24.5 points as the teams only legitimate weapon
First off, no DMC for Bosh.
Second of all, I know the Heat aren't doing the greatest job in trying to get the most out of him in the L. post, but he is extremely passive when fed.
I have always said Bosh needs to be more aggressive, I want him taking turn around jumpers in the low post, put that baby hook to work, some Nowitzki shooting-like moments, taking threes etc. im all up for that...
but Bosh shies away very easily, he;s unselfish to a fault. Last game against Dallas we were Killing them and Lebron and Wade ware taken out of the game in the 4th quarter.The Heat immediately start feeding Bosh to get him more comfortable making plays for himself... was being fed time and time again and he kept passing the ball playing instead of trying hard to create for himself
It's a long story and i don't want to get into it, but basically he was being fed and T.Os kept happening cus Bosh was trying to pass all time and the team started to catch up.
I wouldn't put the entire blame on the Heat for not getting Bosh more involved, he needs to be more aggressive himsefl
Lebron James, Dwyane Wade, Kevin Durant, Russel Westbrook, Serge Ibaka, Kevin Love, Zack Randolph, Chris Paul, Dirk Nowitzki, Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol (healthy and in a non D'antoni system), Dwight Howard (healthy), Derrick Rose, Andrew Bynum, Joakim Noah. Right there that's 15 players who are better than one of the most overrated pf's in the league Chris Bosh! I watched this guy for 7 yrs in a Raptors uniform, ya he's got some moves, but he was a big time ball stopper and killer of the offensive flow, and he lacks anything remotely resembling leadership skills on the hardwood. He is pretty good, I just feel that he was overrated in his time in Toronto because he was the only guy who was decent. He is one of the worst players in crunch time, dude will get the ball with 10 seconds left in the game, think about what he's gonna do for 7 of those seconds and then he'll either pass it off with 3 seconds left or turn it over. This happened without fail almost every time in the crunch.
Absolutely not overrated. Thats completely uncalled for. The guy averages 18 and 8 as a 3rd option and does it with more efficiency than 90% of the NBA. He plays very good positional defense and isnt afraid to sacrifice his body for the charge. I think it was the 06-07 season he was 4th in the league in charges taken and his shot blocking at 1.3 a game is above average as well.
He led a very weak raptors squad to 41 wins and 1 away from the playoffs. They lost him to free agency and the team goes 22-60. He is far more valuable than given credit for, but mainly because hes not able to show off his entire game in Miami. I agree they arent using him right but they won a championship last year with this style of play so there is no point in changing anything quite yet.
Its pretty hard to find a better 3rd option in the NBA than Chris Bosh.
