Bosh Unconcerned about Making All-Star Team
Tucked behind LeBron James’ second triple-double of the season, and hidden beneath Dwyane Wade’s season-high 35-point outburst was one of Bosh’s best games in weeks. Considering his recent struggles, the 12 points and 12 rebounds Bosh finished with Wednesday against his former team would qualify as somewhat of a breakout game.
In fact, he says he won’t even watch the national telecast when the reserves are revealed before Thursday’s game between the Boston Celtics and the New York Knicks.
“I’ll probably be sitting on my couch, either playing video games or hanging out with my son,” Bosh said. “If I don’t make it, it’s a waste of time. If I do make it, you don’t want to sit there and hear everyone talk about the reasons why you barely made it or shouldn’t have been picked.”
Make no mistake: Bosh is confident he’ll be chosen as an All-Star for the eighth time in his 10-year career. But it doesn’t appear he’ll be a shoe-in selection in what shapes up to be an ultra-tight fit in the Eastern Conference.
“I feel I’m one of the best players in the league,” Bosh said. “Whether it’s debatable or not, I really don’t care. It’s about what I think. And that’s it.”
