Does Chris Bosh Lack Leadership Skills?
In the unlikely event that Bosh gets asked to be a leader in South Beach, his former coach warns that this might not be the wisest of choices. From the Sun-Sentinel: “Between the web, late-night television and social events from coast to coast, he has been as ubiquitous as any NBA presence this offseason, including teammates Dwyane Wade and LeBron James. But what about now, when he gets back to his day job? Will his voice continue to resonate? Will his presence be felt inside the locker room? Will Chris Bosh be seen and heard this season? In setting up his own team’s season, Raptors coach Jay Triano also offered a potential clue to how the Heat’s season might set up beyond the court. ‘When you talk about Chris being the leader in the locker room,’ Triano told a Toronto radio station, ‘I think it’s the one thing that he wasn’t for us. He did a great job of getting 24 points and 10, 11 rebounds on a regular basis, but Chris did not really take the leadership role into the locker room. He’s not a vocal person; he’s not a guy who really did that.’”
