Bosh Expects to Be All-Star Starter
Chris Bosh believes the Miami Heat are about to make history. And he doesn’t
care how it’s done.
The Heat center is expecting his coach, Erik Spoelstra, to name him to start the Feb. 17 All-Star Game in Houston. He then would join LeBron James and Dwyane Wade in making Miami the first team in 23 years to have three All-Star starters.
“Yeah, I think so,” Bosh told FOX Sports Florida after Wednesday’s 99-94 win over Charlotte about his belief that Spoelstra, the Eastern Conference All-Star coach, will name him to replace injured Boston point guard Rajon Rondo in the lineup.
Spoelstra has hinted he could start Bosh, but hasn’t given a definite answer. If it happens, the Heat would become the first team to have three All-Star starters since the 1990 Los Angeles Lakers had guard Magic Johnson and forwards James Worthy and A.C. Green.
