Chris Bosh sums up Finals: “(Spurs) played the best basketball I’ve ever seen”

Jun 16, 2014, 2:44 PM EDT

Chris Bosh, Manu Ginobili AP

SAN ANTONIO — The San Antonio Spurs just owned the Miami Heat. Dominated. Put up the largest scoring margin in the NBA Finals ever.

And the Heat players knew it.

“I mean, they exposed us, you know,” Chris Bosh said after Game 5. “They picked us apart. They made us question what we were doing and we were always behind the whole time. They played faster, they played stronger, they played together, and they played like they wanted it more and they played with more pain. We’ve been in that situation before. We understand where they were coming from. Not to that magnitude but you could tell who won and who lost last year….

“They just beat us. Give credit to those guys. They dominated us. They took two games on our home court by 20 points apiece. They beat us by 20 tonight. It hasn’t been much of a series. Not even close. It’s kind of an anticlimactic ending for us, for the season, but you have to tip your hats off to those guys.

“They played the best basketball I’ve ever seen.”

Couldn’t have said it better myself.

To a man the Heat players echoed those basic points.

“They were the much better team,” LeBron James said. “That’s what team basketball and that’s how team basketball should be played.  You know, it’s selfless.  Guys move, cut, pass, you’ve got a shot, you take it, but it’s all for the team and it’s never about the individual.  That’s the brand of basketball, and that’s how team basketball should be played.”

The question for LeBron, Pat Riley and the Heat is what they are going to do about it.

    “The question for LeBron, Pat Riley and the Heat is what they are going to do about it.”

    Since Wade will need to play 20 games next regular season to “rest up” for a mediocre playoff performance, but still demand a max salary:

    Wade: Either opt-in or secure high sub-max multi-year deal.

    Pat Riley: Retire

    Chris Bosh: Houston

    Ray Allen & Shane Battier & Haslem: Retire

    Lebron: Tough to figure out. Cleveland is always looming, but I think the Bulls would be the best option.

    • apkyletexas - Jun 16, 2014 at 5:20 PM

      Why would Houston want Chris Bosh?

      • nflcrimerankingscom - Jun 17, 2014 at 12:38 PM

        Why wouldn’t they want a good defender who can space the floor & play inside/out? Huh?

    • redbaronx - Jun 16, 2014 at 11:09 PM

      @nflcrimeranking – The Heat lose one and Pat Riley should retire? Seriously? Get real! Pat is one of the smartest execs out there and I have no doubt he’s going to make the right moves to put the right guys around LeBron. And no, I’m not a Heat fan. I just would never doubt Riley.

    • gofinsgoheatfloria - Jun 17, 2014 at 6:55 AM

      The Heat started the season with the same 0-0 record as everyone else, and went as far as taking home court in the Finals from the eventual champions. They didn’t finish the job, but talking about blowing up the whole operation is just ridiculous. A season like this for any team that had not won it all the two previous years would be a dream season. The Heat do have repairs to make, but, pax my friend, I’m glad Riley will be there and will be the main guy in the process. He can’t get them all right, but he figures to do better than your average bear, or anyone here.

      • nflcrimerankingscom - Jun 17, 2014 at 12:40 PM

        It’s cute when Heat fans ignore trends. Wade is going to just get worse and worse. Past results don’t predict future performance.

  2. fanofthegame79 - Jun 16, 2014 at 2:58 PM

    Chris Bosh played some of the worst basketball I’ve ever seen. The dude was pretty much non-existent. That goes back to his 0 points in game 7 last year. The Heat, if they remain with this big 3, need to find a way to have Bosh play stretch 4 and get themselves a defensive-minded center.

    • antistratfordian - Jun 16, 2014 at 3:27 PM

      Cmon, he wasn’t that bad. And he was pretty good at the end of Game 2 with the three and the dish. But a lot of Bosh’s winning play is not captured in the box score and therefore hard for an average fan to perceive.

      • unfrozencavemanlawyer2 - Jun 16, 2014 at 3:37 PM

        Right- only the truly enlightened can appreciate Bosh. He’s a talented big- but he was never a rugged player- which the Heat desperately need. Would it be too much for a 6″10 guy to go in the paint once in awhile and grab some rebounds? Apparently so.

      • brutl - Jun 16, 2014 at 4:31 PM

        Kind of hard for the guy to rebound in the paint when most sets bring him way outside the paint
        You don’t have to be truly enlightened to appreciate Bosh, just open your eyes.
        Just go back and watch the last 30 seconds of last year’s game six before OT, if you haven’t seen it replayed a million times already.
        Or listen to his teammates and his coach tell you that he does what they ask him to instead of worrying about his stats.

      • iknowzeroaboutsports - Jun 16, 2014 at 5:30 PM

        Anti, if you never posted again on these boards you would retire as the greatest troll of all time. Man, you have game. Thanks for defining the genre. I am in awe.

      • antistratfordian - Jun 16, 2014 at 5:35 PM

        Well I appreciate the kind words. Do you know who was also once considered the greatest troll of all time?

        Socrates.

      • iknowzeroaboutsports - Jun 16, 2014 at 5:47 PM

        Well, I say it with peace and love, not as a criticism, bro.

      • hwatt - Jun 16, 2014 at 5:52 PM

        “…winning play” I’m sorry this team just got blown the hell out of the playoffs, 4 out of 5 times. What exactly was he helping the team ‘win’ at? What type of game plan, that just has a supposed Big 3 member doing something other than scoring, is worth keeping?

      • antistratfordian - Jun 16, 2014 at 5:54 PM

        You know there were 94 other games that Bosh played in this year.

      • hwatt - Jun 16, 2014 at 11:13 PM

        oh so you’re saying he’s Carlos Boozer. great regular season (well not really, they only took half their games seriously) and a no-show in the playoffs.

  3. djshnooks - Jun 16, 2014 at 3:02 PM

    Major respect to him for being honest.

    I said it last night…this is an awesome year for some young kid to pick his favorite NBA and NHL team to move forward with. The Spurs and the Kings, while both sporting the same (bad@$$) colors of black/silver/white…are also both the definition of what a “team” should be in sports today. It was truly an honor to watch both those teams.

    I really hope young kids realize THAT is WHY these teams won…togetherness, team, family…working hard to not let the guy next to you down…working as one solid unit to achieve success for everyone.

    That is what sports should be all about.

    That’s what it used to be all about.

    That’s what wins championships.

    • antistratfordian - Jun 16, 2014 at 3:39 PM

      The Heat are also the definition of what a team should be in sports today – and probably even more so, since they are an even better example of putting modern egos aside for the benefit of the team. Moreso than the Spurs, the Heat represent what we’ve always wanted our stars to do – to check their egos at the door and not be all about the most money and individual stats.

      The Spurs draft/add players who are naturally predisposed to that, but the Heat had guys who were all franchise carriers who sacrificed to win.

      And “togetherness, team, family” describes Miami as much as it does San Antonio.

      • unfrozencavemanlawyer2 - Jun 16, 2014 at 3:52 PM

        Your delusion has reached laughable proportions. You realize LBJ has a tattoo that reads ‘Check My Stats”, yes? Refers to himself as ‘The King’? Wade calls himself ‘Way of Wade’? Bosh openly discusses how he is a sure-fire Hall of Famer? LBJ says he belongs on NBA’s Mount Rushmore? Wade still fancies himself a top 10 NBA player? Had a championship celebration before they ever played a game? Ever hear talk like that from anyone on San Antonio? No. Duncan and Parker pioneered the ‘take less’ to keep the team together concept. And before you deify your beloved – yet again- the lack of Florida state income tax made their ‘sacrifice’ paltry at best. But- please- continue on slobbering over the Miami trio- it is what you do best.

      • antistratfordian - Jun 16, 2014 at 4:18 PM

        He doesn’t have a tattoo that reads check my stats. He wore a t-shirt once that said check my stats. white people have a hard time interpreting harmless hip-hop bravado – it’s not to be taken literally – it is just all in good fun.

        His nickname is King because that’s what was given to him in high school. People call him King. It’s not like he asked people to call him that – he was just so good and it stuck. It’s like any other nickname.

        Parker was never a franchise player so he doesn’t know that level of sacrifice. Duncan didn’t sacrifice until he was well over the hill – he still made $21 million in 2011-12, remember.

      • spursareold - Jun 16, 2014 at 3:58 PM

        Refresh me: How much is each Heatle making? I’m pretty sure that Tim Tony and Manu, COMBINED, make less than two of them.

      • antistratfordian - Jun 16, 2014 at 4:27 PM

        LeBron by himself should make more than Tim, Tony and Manu combined, but he’s not even the highest paid player on his own team.

      • bougin89 - Jun 16, 2014 at 3:59 PM

        You think Wade has “checked his ego”? C’mon now Anti, you’re really reaching now.

      • antistratfordian - Jun 16, 2014 at 4:28 PM

        Of course he did. He did that more than anyone else. He gave LeBron the keys to the franchise – that is the definition of checking his ego.

      • bougin89 - Jun 16, 2014 at 4:32 PM

        Being a Marquette guy, I’ve followed Wade when he was actually humble. He’s no longer that guy, at all.

      • antistratfordian - Jun 16, 2014 at 4:49 PM

        You haven’t been paying attention then. What could be more humble than his actions since 2011? Do you realize how difficult that must’ve been for him? But it was the right thing to do if he wanted his team to get back to the top.

      • sportsfan18 - Jun 16, 2014 at 4:02 PM

        The Heat had the 8th, 9th and 10th highest paid players in the league this past season.

        The Spurs highest plaid player checked in at #37 and their second highest player checked in at #54.

        I’d say the Spurs checked their ego’s at the door very well thank you.

        Oh, 12 DIFFERENT players on the Spurs that appeared in 50 or more games this yr averaged 10 min’s or MORE per game.

        NO player averaged 30 min’s per game.

        Here is how the Spurs players scoring went from top to middle of the roster…

        16.7 pts a game – that was the HIGHEST scorer on the Spurs this season
        15.1
        12.8
        12.3
        11.4
        10.2
        9.1
        9.1 not typo – two different guys averaged this same amount
        8.2

        Top min’s per game of top half of their roster

        29.4
        29.2
        29.1
        25.2
        25.0
        24.3
        22.8
        21.5

        That is 8 players averaging over 20 min’s a game. The team LEADER in min’s per game only played 7 something more min’s per game than the 8th place man in min’s per game on the team.

        They checked their egos very well. They ARE a team, a great team.

      • antistratfordian - Jun 16, 2014 at 4:34 PM

        Dude. Tim Duncan made 21 million dollars in 2011-12. He cut his pay in half in 2012 down to 9 million – which was well after the Heat had already set the precedent.

      • capspats - Jun 16, 2014 at 4:03 PM

        True. I would say the spurs gameplay is more team oriented than the heat, but the way the way the big three got together, sacrificing stats and money was very team oriented as well

      • antistratfordian - Jun 16, 2014 at 4:37 PM

        Their gameplay is more team oriented out of necessity. If the Spurs had LeBron they would play a little differently. But both teams are selfless – both teams sacrifice – both teams consider themselves a family. There is not much philosophical difference between the two organizations when it comes to the importance of selflessness.

      • savvybynature - Jun 16, 2014 at 7:02 PM

        Wade made a huge sacrifice by letting the best player in the league come onto his team and win championships for him after he was washed up?
        Give it a rest, man.
        The Heat are just a good team with one great player. They aren’t historically relevant outside of how Lebron’s time on the team goes. Stop trying to convince everyone that they are the greatest team ever at everything. They aren’t that special.

      • sportsfan18 - Jun 16, 2014 at 8:19 PM

        Anti

        Saying they followed the Heat’s precedent isn’t right.

        You’re right that Duncan did cut his salary in half.

        D Wade went from $15.779 million down to $14.2 million the year LBJ and Bosh came to town.

        Oh my, he went down a bit less than $1.6 million from the mid teens.

        It isn’t like he cut his salary in HALF like Duncan did…

        Chris Bosh dropped from $15.779 down to $14.5 million or a tad under $1.2 million.

        Bosh did NOT cut his salary in HALF like Duncan did.

        LBJ dropped from the same as Bosh, from $15.779 down to $14.5 million.

        The so called precedent you said the Heat founded only totaled a COMBINED drop of $4 million in salary by those three.

        THREE of them combined to make $4 million less as a GROUP.

        Duncan ALONE more than doubled that…

        THAT is a precedent Anti

      • antistratfordian - Jun 16, 2014 at 8:23 PM

        The Heat did that in their primes. It was unprecedented. It still is.

        Duncan cutting his bloated salary in half at age 37 is not unusual.

  4. cantonbound13 - Jun 16, 2014 at 3:11 PM

    $100 million & all he does is stand in the corner & shoot 3s at 6’11. Hahaha!

    • southbeachtalent - Jun 16, 2014 at 3:13 PM

      He’s also a back to back champ.

      Can’t say that about anyone on your horrid Knicks.

      The Mecca……

    • antistratfordian - Jun 16, 2014 at 3:23 PM

      Somehow James won multiple rings with that dude as his best big. Crazy, huh? MJ could never do that.

      • spursareold - Jun 16, 2014 at 3:59 PM

        Uh, MJ’s bigs don’t jump off the page at you, either. Rodman was the best, and he barely scored. Perdue? Wennington?

      • antistratfordian - Jun 16, 2014 at 4:31 PM

        Rodman led the league in rebounding every year he was a Bull, and he was also an All-Defensive selection on Chicago.

        Horace Grant was also a gritty rebounder, an All-Defensive selection, and an All-Star while on Chicago.

        MJ wasn’t winning anything without the rebounding and defense from Grant and Rodman. That’s why in 1994-95 when he didn’t have either, he lost in the 2nd round.

      • bucrightoff - Jun 16, 2014 at 4:01 PM

        His trolling reeks of desperation today. He just wants to stay relevant.

      • antistratfordian - Jun 16, 2014 at 4:32 PM

        I will always be relevant because LBJ will always be relevant and I am the foremost expert on the matter.

      • sportsfan18 - Jun 16, 2014 at 4:04 PM

        MJ would have been 4 & 0 in the same four finals that Bron went 2 & 2 in…

        Just by taking Bron off and putting Michael with his teammates…

        So, you ARE right that MJ couldn’t have done that… couldn’t have ONLY won 2 out of 4 championships while appearing in 4 straight finals…

      • antistratfordian - Jun 16, 2014 at 4:38 PM

        MJ isn’t making it to any Finals playing with Wade and Bosh. Who is going to rebound for him? LeBron can do that for himself, but MJ can’t be a PF.

        MJ absolutely needed Pippen’s defense and Grant’s/Rodman’s defense and rebounding. LeBron doesn’t need those things.

      • bucrightoff - Jun 16, 2014 at 4:36 PM

        Anti, thanks for the high comedy. The scariest part of course is you actually believe you’re a legend in your own mind.

      • antistratfordian - Jun 16, 2014 at 4:51 PM

        The scariest part is you know I’m right.

      • borderline1988 - Jun 17, 2014 at 11:51 AM

        The other thing that is lost here is that MJ NEVER played a team as good as the Spurs in the NBA Finals.
        The Lakers (at that point in time), Phoenix Suns, Portland Trailblazers, Seattle Supersonics, and Utah Jazz would all, imo, have been beaten by this year’s SA Spurs. The Jazz were pretty good, but the 2013/14 SAS were historically good. That team has to be mentioned among the greatest NBA teams of all time. They literally destroyed the reigning 2-time NBA champions in historic fashion.

        You’re probably right about Dallas in 2010/11 though. The Heat should have won that series, but their inexperience playing together played too big of a role. I think the 2012/13 version of the Heat could have won that series.

  5. southbeachtalent - Jun 16, 2014 at 3:12 PM

    Spurs were the superior team, that’s it.

    We will be back.

    • soflasfinest - Jun 16, 2014 at 10:10 PM

      Amen to that. We can’t win them all!

  6. bucrightoff - Jun 16, 2014 at 3:16 PM

    Considering Chris Bosh has been around like 65 million years, he’s seen a lot of basketball so he must be impressed.

  7. antistratfordian - Jun 16, 2014 at 3:22 PM

    Well Chris hit the nail on the head. The Spurs were supremely motivated by their loss from last year and wanted it more than everyone else on Miami except for James. If the Heat lost last year the outcome would’ve probably been different.

    • unfrozencavemanlawyer2 - Jun 16, 2014 at 3:26 PM

      Right- or it would have been the exact same outcome. Either way.

      • antistratfordian - Jun 16, 2014 at 3:41 PM

        Well, no, if the Spurs won last year I don’t know that they would’ve been motivated to make it to the finals this year. That has never been their character after winning – to be driven to repeat. So I doubt it.

    • unfrozencavemanlawyer2 - Jun 16, 2014 at 3:57 PM

      Finally- you are accurate- you are correct in writing that you don’t know. Spurs were much better than Miami. Dunno if they were more motivated- they were simply better. And let’s not confuse Miami’s ‘drive’ to make it to the Finals with a little help from a bad Eastern Conference. Think Miami goes to four straight finals if they are playing in the West? I doubt it.

      • antistratfordian - Jun 16, 2014 at 4:25 PM

        They were obviously more motivated. All of them cited losing last year as their primary motivation in this series.

        And it’s an energy-sucking, mentally-devouring, chemistry-battering gauntlet to go to 4 straight finals regardless of what conference you play in, or in what era. That’s why it’s so rare. It’s not like this is the only time a conference has been weak (and it wasn’t weak in 2010-11 or 2011-12). It’s just hard to keep winning and to keep playing all of those minutes – and when you throw the olympics in the middle of that it’s even more draining.

    • sportsfan18 - Jun 16, 2014 at 4:07 PM

      Bron wanted it so much that he’s happy only taking 2 out of 4 titles in those 4 yrs…

      We’ll take it he said…

      What would MJ have taken?

      4 straight titles

      4 straight finals MVP’s

      NO game 7′s

      opposing players hearts and minds…

      • 1historian - Jun 16, 2014 at 4:28 PM

        What is this 4 straight finals stuff?

        3 finals, 3 titles.

        Take a year and a half off comeback in the spring of 1995. Out in the 2nd round.

        Then

        3 finals 3 titles.

      • sportsfan18 - Jun 16, 2014 at 4:38 PM

        it isn’t difficult historian.

        If you replaced Bron with MJ these past 4 seasons, MJ and the Heat would have gone 4 & 0

        MJ would NOT have been happy or said “we’ll take it” meaning 2 out of 4 titles…

        I said, what “WOULD” have MJ taken?

      • antistratfordian - Jun 16, 2014 at 4:40 PM

        He has no choice but to take it, because that’s what he has. He said he preferred 4 for 4, but that’s not what happened.

        MJ was a guy who was perfectly happy with 3 titles, remember. He thought 3 was enough and that he had nothing left to prove after that. His words.

    • Rob - Jun 16, 2014 at 6:26 PM

      It must hurt a little that LeBron will never, ever, ever know who you are. You two are so similar tho: Both of you are at the top of your game: You a troll, he an athlete. You both have inflated egos. You compare yourself to Socrates. He to the NBA’s Mt. Rushmore. However, you could learn a lot from LeBron. He is actually humble and realistic about the outcome. You are obscenely overbearing about it. In fact, I’m not even sure I can call you a fan. You are doing more damage to LeBron’s reputation via all your absolutely garbage posts than he could ever do to himself. All you are anti is a “fan”. A Fanatic. “A person filled with excessive and single-minded zeal, especially for an extreme religious or political cause.” In this case, your God, whom you single-mindedly support, is a flawed man, as all men and women are. And your worship of him exposes your own insecurity, loneliness, and extreme ignorance every day. Although I have to admit, it’s a lot of fun watching you constantly make a fool of yourself and continue to defend your foolish ideals of one man. Just so you know, he’s only human. He’ll let you down. And as you weep into your own hands, as your wails of sadness echo in your empty apartment in front of your lone friend (you know, that picture of LBJ on the wall), know that all your work, all the energy you spent on typing every single word was for nothing. Because 10 years from now, when LBJ is retired, nobody will remember you.

      • antistratfordian - Jun 16, 2014 at 6:34 PM

        You’ll still remember me, Rob. There are quite a few people who won’t forget the days when they dealt with antistratfordian.

        I didn’t read your post, btw – it was too long and I have about a million replies to get through today. But I appreciate the time you took to respond.

      • Rob - Jun 16, 2014 at 7:04 PM

        You’re welcome anti. Always happy to help make your day a little brighter.

      • antistratfordian - Jun 16, 2014 at 7:14 PM

        Always? This is the first time I recall seeing a reply from you. But you’re welcome to respond any time. I don’t mind criticism. We’re all friends here, in spirit.

        Yeah, I’m not really as arrogant as I seem. It’s a defense mechanism. I’m a nice guy, really.

    • redbaronx - Jun 16, 2014 at 11:27 PM

      @anti – “if the Heat lost last year the outcome would’ve probably been different”

      Yeah you’re right. The Spurs would’ve had two rings in a row….

      • antistratfordian - Jun 16, 2014 at 11:32 PM

        No, I don’t believe the Spurs would’ve won this year if they won last year, but you never know.

      • redbaronx - Jun 16, 2014 at 11:37 PM

        @anti – I told you before the Spurs were the better team. The only reason they didn’t win last year is that Manu was off and they had a couple of youngin’s that weren’t fully ripe. It’s obvious to anyone that’s been watching these games that the Spurs weren’t merely better in this series but DOMINANTLY better despite Duncan being older and Parker not having such a great series. Like I told you before, Miami was lucky to win Game 6 and barely came out alive with the Game 7 on their home floor. That and the way the Spurs came back this year should tell you all you need to know about the Spurs.

        The Spurs probably wouldn’t have come out with the same motivation this year if they won last year. They are a team with 5 rings that has never repeated, after all. The only one, in fact.

        If the Heat lost last year they probably would’ve won this year – just like they’re probably going to win next year.

        You disagree, and that is fine.

        @anti – This is EXACTLY what I’m talking about when I say you don’t know jack about BBall, particularly when it comes to the Spurs. The Spurs keep playing the same way no matter what. The only reason you haven’t seen the Spurs repeat is that very often their roster requires changes to make them into contenders. If you look at their 2005 team vs. the 2007 team, look at the changes to the roster. The Spurs don’t have a dynamic LeBron or someone that has been with them for years that can play different spots and create matchup problems. So it requires constant retooling of the roster.

        And don’t count on the Heat winning next year. Wade isn’t going anywhere and Bosh probably isn’t either. That doesn’t leave room for a lot of upgrades and if they play next year like they played this year (or worse…entirely a possibility where Wade’s knees are concerned), then the Heat won’t be in the mix.

        Stop wasting your time with all this typing. You don’t know what would’ve happened and neither do I. But we disagree. That’s all there is to this conversation.

    Like the Miami Heat players but a lot of the fans are arrogant a-holes. One of them (you know who) even predicted a “gentleman’s sweep” by Miami. Right idea, wrong team. LOL

      His stupidity is matched only by his delusion.

      • loungefly74 - Jun 16, 2014 at 3:52 PM

        Heat players are conceding they were the lesser team. you would think their fans (or the kid who roots for lebron would see that).

        right thing for Bosh to say because it was true. the Heat got taken to a clinic.

      • redbaronx - Jun 16, 2014 at 11:31 PM

        @unfrozen – Antistratfordian delusional? Surely you jest! Ah who am I kidding? I can’t even say that with a straight face!

    • redbaronx - Jun 16, 2014 at 11:29 PM

      @azarkhan – Spurs were pretty close to a sweep! A couple of points swing in game 2 and that would have been 4-0 Spurs.

  9. naterich21 - Jun 16, 2014 at 4:04 PM

    The Heat should dump Bosh first chance they get(2015 offseason) and get somebody that can rebound the ball

    • sportsfan18 - Jun 16, 2014 at 4:08 PM

      Oh no they shouldn’t..

      The Heat need to remain the same…

      Go Spurs…

  10. kb2408 - Jun 16, 2014 at 4:29 PM

    Wait a minute, is the Finals over?! What happened to game 6?! I already have my DVR set!! Bosh promised Miami wouldn’t lose!!! All that tough talk for…..nothing?! The last time I heard so much false bravado was when bb53 challenged me to a fistfight!!

    • billtetley53 - Jun 16, 2014 at 6:58 PM

      Its not false bravado. Im in LA in July,Im offering to meet you anywhere. Its not my fault youre a big CS. Run, rabbit run!

      • kb2408 - Jun 16, 2014 at 10:43 PM

        You wouldn’t last a day in L.A., old fella.

      • shaab23 - Jun 17, 2014 at 2:57 PM

        keep us posted on the duel…

        @kb2408 if the kardashian’s and paris hilton can last in LA, im sure all of us would do just fine…

  11. 1historian - Jun 16, 2014 at 4:30 PM

    Every now and then the game is raised to the level of art.

    Like in the last 5 games.

    Go Spurs.

    Did he cry?

  14. cantonbound13 - Jun 16, 2014 at 6:39 PM

    Bosh did have a great view of the games. He was always standing in the corner of the court waiting to brick a three pointer.

    • billtetley53 - Jun 16, 2014 at 7:00 PM

      Meanwhile, back at the ranch, the Knicks havent won a title since the early 70s.

      • cantonbound13 - Jun 16, 2014 at 7:42 PM

        Well according to Heat fans, making the Finals is just as good. So we’ve made the Finals a few times since the 70s. That must qualify us as a dynasty also. Lol!!!!

  15. themagicfanguy - Jun 16, 2014 at 6:48 PM

    What’s funny is how Lebron bandwagoners have to try and spin this in a positive way even though they got SMASHED by the better team. Keep it up Anti, us REAL basketball experts will just keep laughing at your posts. What a loser, it’s easy to see that you’re no more than a teenager. You’ve clearly never played a real game of basketball in your life, go to the local court then come back and act like you know what your talking about. So what were you saying about a sweep?!? Lmao what a loser.

  16. campcouch - Jun 17, 2014 at 12:07 AM

    What Bosh is trying to say is that the Heat don’t have an offensive scheme or a post player.

  17. mazblast - Jun 17, 2014 at 2:07 AM

    This is the first indication I’ve seen that Chris Bosh was a participant in or even observer of the Finals. I thought I saw someone wearing a jersey with his name a few times, but it was just some tall guy standing out at the 3-point line, waiting to chuck up a brick.

  18. gmsalpha - Jun 17, 2014 at 9:08 AM

    The Spurs play basketball the way LeBron says it should be played.

    It sounds to me like San Antonio is the perfect place for James to land. I’m fairly certain it’s not possible, but it’s clear he respects the team because he himself is a team player at his core. It’s got to eat at him that he’s once again doing all the work, surrounded by a team that might as well be the Cavs. He won’t go to the Spurs, but I truly believe that from a purely basketball standpoint, that is exactly the kind of team he would absolutely love to be on.
