Bosh the Difference Maker for HEAT?
The Heat need help. LeBron James has played at a consistently high level. Wade doesn’t appear capable of it, not consistently anyway. Nobody else on the roster can reach that level ever — nobody except Chris Bosh.
And his teammates know it.
“He’s a special player,” (Juwan) Howard said. “He’s one of the better players in this league, and we saw what he can do in Game 7 against the Celtics [when Bosh had 19 points and eight rebounds in 31 minutes]. Every day he tells us he’s ready. He’s good.”
Said (Udonis) Haslem: “He can do what we need him to do. When you have three superstars, it helps to divide [the demands] three ways. It helps everybody.”
Said (Joel) Anthony: “He is that guy. You saw in Game 7 [against Boston]. He’s still that guy, and when he laces up his shoes and puts on his jersey, we expect him to be that guy.”
So be that guy, Chris Bosh. Your teammates haven’t forgotten who you are.
