Chris Bosh

  1. How good will the Heat be on defense?

    Aug 25, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    If the uber-talented 2010-11 Miami Heat want to win an NBA Championship next season, let alone break the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls’ record of 72 regular-season wins, it would serve them well to remember that those Bulls were nearly as dominant on defense as they were on offense. The 95-96 Bulls were certainly a historically effective…

  2. LeBron is to Cleveland as Wade is… not to Chicago

    Aug 24, 2010, 12:41 PM EDT

    Last week we discussed how the fine folks of Chicago cannot muster the hate for Dwyane Wade that Clevelanders have so easily tapped into for LeBron James. Why is that? He is a born-and-raised Chicago guy who flirted with the city before deciding to stay in Miami (and join forces with LeBron and Bosh). Why…

  3. Chris Bosh says loyalty is for suckers

    Aug 23, 2010, 2:18 PM EDT

    Chris Bosh clearly went to school on Kevin Garnett.   KG stayed loyal for years to Minnesota while the quality of players around him disintegrated. Until the losing got to be too much. Eventually he forced his way out, landed in Boston with other superstars, won a title and now goes on the record saying…

  4. What will LeBron's game look like in Miami?

    Aug 23, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    Let’s play a game. Forget that LeBron James’ decision to join the Miami Heat via an hour-long ESPN special was one of the biggest PR disasters in recent memory. Forget everything about how James’ choice to join Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami rather than stay in Cleveland or go to Chicago or New…

  5. Paul Pierce wonders if Miami's big three can make the sacrifices Boston's stars did

    Aug 19, 2010, 8:25 AM EDT

    In the summer of 2007, the Boston Celtics put together three superstars to form a championship team, not completely different than Miami did this summer. However Boston’s stars were older and could see the end of their careers, they were past their physical primes but still were (and are) high caliber players. They were guys…

  6. Chris Bosh is cool with you hating the Heat

    Aug 18, 2010, 1:14 PM EDT

    It’s trendy to hate the Heat, what with their ripping the hearts out of Cleveland to form the Superfriends. Trust me, plenty of people around the league have the hate, some going so far as to say the only thing that could ever get them to root for the Lakers in the finals would be…

  7. LeBron may have chosen Miami to recreate high school. But he has no regrets.

    Aug 17, 2010, 11:19 AM EDT

    Regrets? Nope. LeBron James is chronicled in the latest issue of GQ, by author J.R. Moehringer, who had the seats closest to ringside for the circus that was the Summer of LeBron. He has a lot of insights, he tries to answer the hardest questions. Like, what would LeBron change if he had it to…

  8. Hall of Famers not giving Heat the title. Yet.

    Aug 13, 2010, 8:39 PM EDT

    The Miami Heat are going to be very good. Nobody questions that. This team is going to win a lot of game this year. Put LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh on one team and you’re going to get that. A title… not so fast. Hall of Famers in Springfield, Mass., for the induction…

  9. Chris Bosh was "playing with people's emotions." And enjoying it.

    Aug 12, 2010, 12:40 PM EDT

    Chris Bosh is loving the spotlight. After years of feeling ignored and underappreciated in Toronto he’s now showing up on Regis & Kelly and doing a New York media blitz. He’s big time. And he’s playing it up — and playing with your emotions, as he told the New York Daily News. “If you think…

  10. For your winter reading: "The Miami Heat's Hijacking of the NBA" by Ric Bucher

    Aug 12, 2010, 10:03 AM EDT

    It’s pretty easy to picture your local Barnes & Nobel changing up the little display in front currently covered with love him/hate him Barack Obama books and putting up love them/hate them Miami Heat books. The first of what should be many will be coming from the pen, er, computer of ESPN’s Ric Bucher. According…

  11. Bosh: "We have to win a championship"

    Aug 11, 2010, 4:45 PM EDT

    They may not yet realize just how hard it will be (well, one of them does), but Miami’s big three gets what the expectations they have created are: “We have to win a championship,” forward Chris Bosh said…. “I think so, because of the situation we’ve brought to ourselves,” he said. “With this group that…

  12. Winderman: Nine games the Heat could lose you didn't expect

    Aug 10, 2010, 5:49 PM EDT

    Even before the NBA released its complete schedule Tuesday, there were plenty of logical assumptions that could have been made about the longshot odds of the revamped Miami Heat matching the 72-10 of the 1995-96 Bulls. There are, after all, four games apiece against the Celtics and Magic, as well as two against the Lakers,…

  13. Jeff Van Gundy says the Heat will break Bulls' record of 72 wins

    Aug 8, 2010, 12:25 PM EDT

    Oh, good. This should go over well. Jeff Van Gundy, in an interview with the Miami Herald, thinks the Heat will break the ’96 Bulls’ record of 72 wins, and will challenge the ’72 Lakers’ record for consecutive wins of 33. No, seriously. He went out and said what a lot of people are thinking:…

  14. Can the Heat be beat inside?

    Aug 5, 2010, 12:15 PM EDT

    Nobody is going to be better than the Miami Heat at the two, three and four spots. But picture them playing Orlando. Jameer Nelson has the ball (guarded by Mario Chalmers) and Dwight Howard (covered by Joel Anthony) comes out to set the high pick. That is a hard-to-stop P&R combo for any team, and…

  15. Eddie House officially becomes a member of the Miami Heat

    Aug 4, 2010, 10:38 AM EDT

    Eddie House already came to an agreement with the Miami on the terms of a two-year contract, but he’s now officially a member of the Heat according the Associated Press. Miami inked House to a two-year, $2.8 million contract, one of the great value signings of the tail end of free agency. House is a…

  16. Welcome to the big time Miami — and a tough start to the season

    Aug 3, 2010, 9:45 PM EDT

    You wanted to be big time, you wanted the spotlight Miami. Well you got it. And everything that comes with it. Like a tough first week. First you get the Boston Celtics in Boston. Three nights later you get to host the Orlando Magic. The last two Eastern Conference champions in your first two games.…

  17. Chris Bosh "put his heart and soul" into Toronto

    Jul 30, 2010, 8:19 AM EDT

    Toronto General Manager Bryan Colangelo said Chris Bosh “checked out” at the end of his time in Toronto, when the Chicago Bulls caught the fading Raptors for the eighth playoff spot. Chris Bosh went on Rogers Sportsnet Thursday and fired back, saying he “put his heart and soul” into the Raptors and that what Colangelo…

  18. Eddie House signs with Miami Heat – damn, they just got even better

    Jul 29, 2010, 12:32 PM EDT

    The Miami Heat need shooters. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade are two of the very best at getting to the rim, Chris Bosh plays inside. Somebody has to space the floor besides Mike Miller. That somebody is Eddie House. House signed a two-year, $2.8 million deal with the Heat, with the second year being a…

  19. Dirk Nowitzki: I would have considered Miami if LeBron, Wade had asked

    Jul 27, 2010, 1:08 PM EDT

    Nobody thought Dirk Nowitzki was going anywhere. He was technically a free agent but he loves Dallas and Dallas loves him. Especially Mark Cuban, and he had the biggest vote. So this was all a fait accompli… Or not. Nowitzki said he would have listened to offers where teams were closer to a title than…

  20. Flo-Rida video: "We already won"

    Jul 27, 2010, 11:49 AM EDT

    Ain’t no reason to play no more games… Rajon Rondo thinks there is. Same with Dwight Howard. And do you even need to ask Kobe what he thinks? The Heat will be very good. But they are going to have to earn a title. And it will be harder than they think.

  21. Raptors GM Colangelo insinuates Bosh mentally checked out at end of last season

    Jul 27, 2010, 10:30 AM EDT

    Discrediting and ripping the big star that left town is a tradition in Toronto that goes back to the time of Vince Carter and Tracy McGrady. But old traditions are sometimes the most comforting, the thing that is needed. Take for example Raptors General Manager Bryan Colangelo insinuating Chris Bosh was already mentally checking out…

  22. Rajon Rondo unsurprisingly is not concerned with the Heat

    Jul 25, 2010, 11:37 AM EDT

    The defining characteristic of the Boston Celtics is their defense. Their second defining characteristic is arrogance. This isn’t a bad thing. The Celtics, like all great teams, pride themselves on being the team they consider the best. All season long they kept the same mantra: the only team that can beat them is themselves. This…

  23. Chris Bosh still developing documentary

    Jul 25, 2010, 10:30 AM EDT

    You’d think he would have noticed everything. The monumental backlash to “The Decision.” The massive criticism for Wade even mentioning 9/11. The plummeting Q ratings. You’d think Chris Bosh would have noticed that all the attention and self-aggrandizement the Big 3 in Miami have brought on themselves has been too much and they need to…

  24. Just in case you were curious, Stephon Marbury is still completely batty

    Jul 23, 2010, 6:07 PM EDT

    Whether in the All-Star game, on the bench, in a box, or in China, nothing seems to change with Stephon Marbury. He is who he’s always been, and that’s why no one should be all that surprised that when given the opportunity to be a part of the championship-favorite Miami Heat for the coming season,…

  25. Dwyane Wade on Jimmy Kimmel: LeBron owes Wade a few dinners

    Jul 23, 2010, 12:23 PM EDT

    My favorite part of this two-part interview: Wade saying he gets texts from players saying they want to come to Miami, but they forget to leave their name. Fun interview, in large part because Kimmel just crushes it.
