Chris Bosh: ‘I Want to Be the Best Player in the NBA’


Chris Bosh is this month’s subject in the always-amusing “What I’ve Learned” feature in Esquire, and the Miami Heat forward drops some pretty fantastic (mostly hilarous) quotes: “Spending is the easiest thing in life. You give me $100 million and I can spend it in twenty-four hours. You think I’m playing? I’m not playing. People can’t fathom it. But going broke is the easiest thing ever. Money requires a lot of attention … You might want to cut off some shorts and wear them with some boots and a cool shirt. That’s fashion, because it’s what you want to do. People can laugh at it, but you have to be like, ‘This is cool. I don’t know what you’re talking about.’ Next thing you know, people will be saying, That is kind of cool, man … It’s not hard to imitate a used-car salesman if you grow up watching television in Dallas … I still have the element of surprise. They don’t expect me to do what I’m going to do next year … I want to be the best player in the NBA. Maybe not this year or the year after next, but one day…’”

    Coincidence? I do too.

  • DieselMechanic

    Back to his old mentality, that’s good.

  • KoBynum716

    -First
    Posh isn’t even a top 5 at his position, and he’s talking about being best in the league. Gasol, Amare, Dirk, Love, Z-Bo, Blake, Timmy, West, Boozer > Posh Spice any day.

    cut off some shorts and where them with boots? wtf?

  • http://www.slamonline.com Wayno

    no comment…

  • BasketballJunkie

    WTF is he talking about??? Bosh must have been hanging with Metta this off season…….

  • furiousfunkfanatic

    He isn’t even the best guy on his own team. I tell you something: he is already a mediocre player and will get worse every season. Eventually the Heat will try to trade him.

    When I read his statements I start to believe, that he is overconfident and a little bit crazy. I think, that the Bulls have a chance this year…

    Thank you Bosh!

  • DieselMechanic

    Bosh could be the best or one of them at his position, he just needs to get back to being aggressive.

  • ClydeSays

    I glad he’s got his sense of humor back. Anything that will cut back on his blubbering…

  • manu

    kobynum your a dumass…amare is overrated he’s not on boshs level when bosh is aggressive….boozer? lmfao the guy who got owned by bosh in the ECF? right..stfu David West? when was the last time he was relevant…shut ur mouth

  • http://www.slamonline.com Jahmai

    I seriously laughed out loud the minute I saw this article and I’m not even joking a little bit.

  • http://nyill.wordpress.com/ O

    Bosh could be dope if he was the 1st or 2nd option. But being the 3rd option in an offense is hurting him bad..

  • JR

    I’m a Raps fan, and I honestly don’t see why Bosh get’s hated on so much. He’s definitely a weird dude, but at the same time, he’s a great player who can put up 20 and 10 throughout any given season. Thats great. Of course he’s going to strive to be the best, I’m sure most professional athletes are; there’s no way they get to the level they get to without having that mentality.

  • Bt

    I’d take bosh over griffin and love. Those two are just stay mongers who play terrible defense and can’t lead a team anywhere near the playoffs. At least bosh took the raptors to the playoffs

  • LA Huey

    “Gasol, Amare, Dirk, Love, Z-Bo, Blake, Timmy, West, Boozer” are better than Bosh? The mere fact you included Boozer means you didn’t watch the 2011 ECF and just excused yourself from the conversation.

  • simeon

    people are overrating bg and love. truth be told bosh is leagues above them. folks just want to hate.

  • LA Huey

    I agree, BG and Love are overrated but that’s usually the case with the fresh and new. Human nature to overlook the tried and true.

  • AD

    Blake is not overated…. kevin love might be but i think bosh is top 5 in his position….. The hate is just a prime example how media influences people’s opinion….. Bosh may be soft but he can lead a team to the playoffs unlike boozer and dwest –@kobynum cmon son think about it for a second…

  • shutup

    I dont see how he could really believe this, but if thats what it takes to motivate himself, then hell one day i wanna be white and have pink balls.

  • Heals

    First!!! Oh, wait. Enough with having respect for people with ambition (i.e. JordanCrawford). At least when’s just stupid, self-absorbed shht like this. How about a back-to-basket game, a lefty hook, building a stronger core and legs for post defense, mentally finding ways to be more dependable during adversity, etc. But of course not, that’d be to simple to dissect if it didn’t happen, so instead we get this vague a$$ I wanna be the best in the League BS. Dude that ship sailed years ago for ya, so focus on being the best big man in Mia and save the rest for WendyWilliams. As a reporter how would you even take that with straight face, “maybe not this year or the next, but someday,” please…

  • tomtom

    I think there is a good chance he will be the best player in the league within the next 2 or 3 years, the only thing is, they might not let him play in the WNBA.

  • MUBWAR

    bosh is better than Amar’e, TD(this stage of his carreer), Love and any other PF not named DiscoDirk or Blake Griffin.

    Bosh will put up 20 points and 10 rebounds a night if you put him on any team in the league. And he was did quite well against the bulls. Dude is a PF, don’t know why ppl want him to be a C.

  • JL

    Bosh seriously is a top tier PF. Just that joining with Wade and Lebron took away from his cred and productivity. He could do it all except for block alot of shots. His range is pretty good. Even out to the 3pt line.

  • http://slamonline.com datkid

    @KoBynum716 I can’t believe we’re honestly having a debate about whether bosh is top 5 at his position… TD at this stage of his career is better? really?? bosh is better than david west, amare and the fact that you included boozer shows you might be retarded. bosh is actually more complete a player than love and griffin as well even though they have more upside. the only 3 pf’s better than him right now are gasol, randolf and dirk.

  • http://www.t-mac.com/tmac/index unf*ckwitable

  • KoBynum716

    Wow, I figured saying that Boozer or West is better than Posh was my personal bias, but for all these people to say Posh is better than Amare? Love with 15rpg? Please, all of you gotta open your eyes and see how overrated Chris Posh is. Skinny and flimsy.

  • BBaller

    lmao @ the Santa line Wayno, seriously( hard to do in this article) Bosh is not as good Dirk, Z-Bo and on par with BG. The wizards have got a better chance of being the ” best” at anything in the NBA before Bosh does. Does he think he’s a rookie? In 3-4 years he’ll on the decline.

  • http://slamonline.com datkid

    amare can’t rebound or play defense. bosh can. ALL love can do is is rebound. he really can’t score or defend as well as bosh can. any way you slice it bosh is still better, although love will be better than him soon.. maybe.

  • bull22

    by being a third wheel on a allstar team he is already showing he is a overrated player and one who will never garnish the respect that dirk nowitzki gets… on a horrible team like the raptors someone has to lead in scoring and rebounding but not anyone can carry a team on his back and get them into playoffs.. frankly after the way he was clowned in finals he needs to just shutup and play..

  • Michelle

    Keep dreaming Bosh

  • BRAVO

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ EVERYONE UP HERE IS JUST DUMB

    BOSH IS BETTER THAN KEVEN LOVE, BOOZER, BLAKE GRIFF, Z-BO, DIRK, KG, ALDRIDGE, AMARE, GASOL!

    ALL YOU PPL JUST WATCH HE GON PLAY LIKE HE DID WITH THE RAPTS BEFORE THE BROKEN NOISE. CB JUSS KILL IT ALRDY AND SHOW THE HATERS THEY DUMB AS FU*K

  • BBaller

    What’s this about Bosh and Defense? Put Bosh, Dirk and STAT in a room and ask them all what is defense? All would say the wooden lining around my house. They are all Offensive minded not like TD and KG who play both ends and are always in the discussion of DPOY.

  • Dingo Rob

    better than Love and Griffin? unless someone who makes informed comments on here says it I’m not giving it another thought.

  • Thor

    @BRAVO
    Do you really think people will take you serious when writing like that?
    Bosh IS pretty damn good, and debating who he’s better or worse than is tough as hell if even possible. But one thing is for sure, when teaming up with two of the 5 best players in the league of course your numbers gonna drop and your spotlight fade. I don’t believe that some of you guys are as dumb as you sound, but I do believe that you should learn to think before you write. For everyone’s sake.

  • the truth

    he was kidding…no one else got that?

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5OhGZNLPSOY&feature=related Allenp

    man, y’all are sleeping on bosh.
    Dude was averaging like 24 and 12 in toronto his last year. He put up 18 and 8 for miami with an extreme decrease in shots.
    He plays very good defense on his man, excellent help defender, can put the ball on the deck, shoot the jumper and finishes well.
    Love is nice, but his offensive game is limited to shooting jumpers at this point and he is a very bad defender.
    Blake’s raw talent is off the charts, but his defense is still suspect and his game could use some refinement.
    I say Dirk is clearly better. Gasol might be better. Amare and Blake are probably on the same level depending on what you like in a player. That is top five right there.

    I’d like to propose that we use “crazier than cutting off some shorts and wearing them with some Boots” as the go-to comeback for anything stupid on this site. Example:
    -Raptors will make the playoffs!
    -That’s crazier than cutting off some shorts and wearing them with some boots.
    Or
    -Kobe is still the best in the league.
    -That’s crazier than cutting off some shorts and wearing them with some boots.

  • shutup

    Id still take Duncan over bosh, even at “this stage” of his career, i think hes matching Bosh’s 18-8 last year with his diminished role. I think Aldridge is better than Bosh and has way more potential at the pf position.

  • MUBWAR

    LA can’t rebound mr shutup. bosh meanwhile pulls downs almost 9 rebounds a game while fighting for the ball against guys like james(7.5rpg) wade(6.4rpg)and haslem(8.2rpg)

  • B.C.

    Chris Bosh is mentally ill, there is no other word to describe him. He’s the reason Heat lose games, there’s retard thinks he’s a star and takes shots that he shouldn’t and turns the ball over in critical situations, just imagine how could the Heat would be if they had Amare, they would be unstoppable. Chris Bosh is an outcast and there is no big 3 its the big 2 as far as I’m concerned.

  • B.C.

    @ MUBWAR, are you serious Bosh better then Amare? Are you stupid? I think so.

  • Allenp

    Amare doesn’t rebound defend or pass. Has nobody noticed this? He.is a.beast on the.pick and.roll but come on.

  • http://Slamonline.com nbk

    I would take Bosh over every 4 in the league but Dirk, Pau, and LA for right now. Blake Griffin and Kevin Love long term though. Amar’e is really good at putting the ball in the hoop, has all the potential in the world, and he has great hands, but his effort and awareness in the non scoring related aspects of his game are pathetic. So pathetic that he is not really an “A” player as much as a “B+” – Bosh gives you a similar level of offensive production, with a greater ability EVERYWHERE else. Bosh plays within an offensive system better. Assuming not every play will be ran for the power forward. he defends both one on one in the post, and out too as far as the perimeter better. Bosh also protects the rim better than Amar’e, he doesn’t do it by blocking as many shots, but he rotates WAY more efficiently, he is willing to take charges more than once a month or seven. Needless to say at this point Bosh is better than Amare. Stats with the Heat and all.

  • http://www.slamonline.com megatron

    I think chris is the 3rd best PF in the league behind dirk and gasol

  • http://entelleckt.com Mike Wyatt | @entelleckt

    Nothing wrong with Bosh wanting to be the best player in the NBA

  • http://entelleckt.com Mike Wyatt | @entelleckt

    nbk and megatron are right

  • shutup

    @mubwar LA averaged 7.5 rebounds a game in his career. Bosh only avg 9, thats not that big of a difference. LA is a better shooter and i think overall player and better suited for the pf position than bosh. How come everybody sleeps on Duncan? The best pf ever, sure he’s on his way out of the league i give it 3 years max, but he is still very effective and productive despite scaling back his game.

  • BBaller

    Word @Shutup, if you were to ask Lebron if they could hypothectically swap Bosh for TD or KG for just this season i’m sure he’d say hell yes.Bosh is just not the right fit for Miami,why they chose an offensive PF is beyond me.A k.Love or L.A would give Lebron the ring he so desires.Bosh is great just like Z-Bo but not in the Miami’s structure.

  • http://www.leaguelineup.com/welcome.asp?url=pawtucketymca Gametimeweezy

    NBK – On paper Bosh is a great player numbers wise but in reality he’s soft and has no individual or team accolades to speak of. He’s no better than 4th best in an albeit strong draft class and Shaq calls him Rupaul which is hilarious because it’s true.. I’m sorry but Bosh does not protect the rim at all opposed to any dominant shot blocker in the history of the league. Compared to Amare, yes he blocks more shots, but so does Dwyane Wade. His numbers are going down this year he won’t be able to guard Amare or score on Chandler. Bosh gets a solid B+ but to say he’s the 3rd best PF in the league is a major insult to Amare, Kevin Love, Zach Randolph, Al Jefferson, Blake Griffin and LaMarcus Aldridge. Now I’m not saying they are better than Bosh but all are ranked higher in most fantasy player rankings. And I understand fantasy rankings are trivial but you had mentioned offensive production. Bosh cannot be a better player than Amare under no stretch of the imagination because his defense does not out way Amare’s offensive production as Amare has actually averaged MORE blocks per game since he came into the league (as well as points). The only reason I’m saying this is there is no way Bosh is better then Amare.

    And there is still the worst post ever” RJ jumped out of a car with 3 guys so he is obviously gay.Usually you have good points but after that….sorry you are a douche bag, just a 21 year old i guess.

  • BBaller

    @nbk Bosh has no defense, when players see him defending the rim they just drive harder because they know he will avoid being a poster.

  • ab40

    If thing go bad this season again, Bosh is going to be the odd man out. And I hope LeBron plays more minutes at the four. And get’s abused in the post by bigger players. Now that’s going to make him cringe and lose his confidence. Because of the injureies. Hell even if they had everybody healthy even this supporting cast is medicore at best.

  • http://Slamonline.com nbk

    Saying someone didn’t read our understand what I said is not being arrogant. It’s true. If you read both comments it’s obvious. And I already explained that RJ situation where it was, and you clearly don’t know what I said either. move on. Stop thinking your opinion of me makes a difference, it’s just as ignorant as the sh*t you say.

  • Justin G.

    Wow, not even sure where to begin. I guess first of all it’s ridiculous saying Bosh couldn’t carry a team to the playoffs. Well yes, he actually did. And in the times before and after that no power forward in the history of the league could have gotten those Raptors teams too much further, let alone be a contender. So many people forget just what a beast Bosh was at both ends of the floor every night in his final year with the Raptors before taking that elbow and breaking a bone in his face. Amare just might be one of the most overrated players in the league now. He has no heart and is not the player Bosh is. Their career stats are very similar too btw. Stoudemire has averaged 21.9 ppgand 8.8 rbg. Bosh is 20 and 9.2. Not exactly huge gaps there, especially in rebounding where Bosh is appaerntly so soft.
    Why is Kevin Love getting so much mention anyway? Because he leaves his man at all times to get himself in position for a rebound? He’s not even in the conversation right now. Dirk and Pau are the only two players that are better at this stage and the fact that they are 7 footers really helps their cause as well although obviously it isn’t the only reason they are better.
    @Gametimeweezy…Nobody protects the paint like the most dominant shot blockers of all time because…well…they were the most dominant shot blockers of all time. It’s kind of a stupid statement to make.

  • shutup

    KG and TD I feel are both better players right now, if were gonna include intangibles in this conversation. Both anchor their teams with leadership something i dont see in bosh or amare. I just feel Aldridge is a better player than Bosh, better post game better jumpshot and more physical. The reason Amare has the hype because he attacks the rim, people are going to notice when you play more aggressive. Honestly before Bosh ended up on the heat I wasnt much of a fan, and watching him in the playoffs made sure my opinion didnt change, bad decision making and fumbled passes at crunch time sealed it for me. as for playoff averages might tell a different story between amare and bosh, amares avg’s go up and boshs goes down. Amare 23.5/9.1 per playoff game and bosh 19.2/8.7 so thats why people as well as i see amare as the better player.

  • BBaller

    Clap , Clap with the strong argument back nbk.He said she said, be more incisive next time.My opinion of you doesn’t make a difference, although once upon a time you made decent comments.@ Shutup nice acknowledgement of TD and KG.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Wayno

    This is the worst discussion ever…did a Jr. High debate team all sign up as commentors for this one? 1st of all, KLove doesn’t belong in the conversation, he literally plays no defense at all. I poke fun at him sometimes, but seriously, Bosh is a top 3 – 4 PF in the league, period. Anyone who says differently didn’t watch him in Toronto. I’m pretty sure that any player in the league would take a statistical hit if they were playing along side the best SF and the best SG in the world. Dirk, Pau, and maybe LA are the only PFs better than him right now.

  • Justin G.

    You don’t think Bosh anchored the Raptors with leadership? Really? I’m not sure berating your players in front of the world like KG does is exactly what I’d call leadership either. It doesn’t matter. We’re talking about who’s the better player here. Mark Messier might have been the leader of the Edmonton Oilers but Wayne Gretzky was the better player. Same thing here. KG and TD, as players, are not as good as Chris Bosh. As for how Bosh played in his first competitive playoffs, I don’t think it fully tells the tale. He had a tough final but he also had a great ECF as well, probably their best player.
    Some may remember that Magic Johnson cost his team a game or two when he turned the ball over with bad passes and letting the shot clock go down in a key situation late in the game too (the year escapes me but it was one of the Finals against Boston). It happens. It doesn’t define you as a player though

  • http://www.nba.com Gman

    First…. Bosh would own everybody on this comment section. Second whats wrong with someone wanting to be the best? Its a good dream, i remember he said he wanted to be MVP and he had one of his best years. Stop hating ppl, but you are entitled to your own opinion. :)

  • shutup

    No I dont think Bosh anchored them with leadership when i watched toronto it was a team in disarray. KG is a leader a vocal one who calls people out and makes them responsible for their actions. Tim Duncan right now is a better player than Chris Bosh, night in and night out I’d give up the 3-4 ppg difference for TD’s intangibles, smart passing the ability to outhink opponents and the ability to control the flow of offense from the post. as for gretzky and messier, messier ended up being the best player on the rangers when they won a championship, so i dont understand your analogy. and the reason magic isnt defined by his mistakes is because success defines a person. put yourself in the seat of any gm with the ability to sign kg,td or chris bosh for this upcoming year and i cant imagine anyone saying give me bosh, i just cant.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Wayno

    KG didn’t start winning until he played with Pierce and Allen, and to a lesser extent Cassel and Spreewell in Minny. You can’t blame Bosh for not winning a title on those horrible Toronto squads, he played out of his mind up there, he just didn’t have alot of help.

  • marc

    This is a real question yal truly thing BG is better then Bosh? I think Bosh’s post game is better then BG. Blake is going to be better then him though without a doubt. The only reason I can see Blake having a great season is because he’s playing with CP3 and a main option. As bosh is a third option.

  • shutup

    kg in minn was better than bosh in toronto. and KG won the first year with allen and pierce, bosh should aspire to be like KG. I just think guys overlook them because their used to seeing them at the top of the list year in and year out. The spurs were second in the nba in wins last year, and the early exit could be attributed to TD rolling his ankle a week before the playoffs. I just dont understand the arguement that leadership and experience and proven winning doesnt count when people say one person is better than the next. who would you want to go to war with? I rather have someone like KG with his fire or TD with his steady hand that has proven that he can make the big shot and carry a team to the ultimate success.

  • shutup

    I think that any team in the L would rather have BG than bosh. BG’s upside is so much greater, he rebounds better than bosh and scores more. as a rookie blakes numbers are 22.5 ppg 12.1 rpg and 3.6 apg. Boshs best season to date is 24, 10.8 , and 2.4. I think Blake is only going to get better, and now playing with Paul his numbers are gonna be crazy.

  • Bravo

    Ppl b crazy just watch

  • http://www.slamonline.com Wayno

    BG will most likely be better than Bosh, but he’s not yet…stats aren’t everything. Also, I seriously think KG’s leadership (screaming/berating) is vastly overrated. Great player, great defender, but prior to coming to Boston was known to disappear under pressure. His “fire” is something that most players including some of his teammates hate. I’d argue that Paul Pierce and Rondo were the real leaders of that Celts team.

  • meloman2.0

    When he was on the Raptors he was definetely a top 3 pf… now, not so much

  • http://www.slamonline.com Wayno

    @ meloman – is he really a worse player now? I’d say playing with the 2 best players in the world might have something to do with his statistical dip…

  • shutup

    @meloman you go back 2 years then he barely makes the top 5 kg,td,Gasol, Aldridge, Dirk not in that order. Aldridge /bosh spot for 5 or six

  • shutup

    oh Amare would be in the top 5 so 6/7 for LA +CB

  • http://www.slamonline.com Wayno

    C’mon now, Amare isn’t better than Bosh, be for real here. At least CB tries to play defense. Also, LA was only putting up 18 and 7 with 1.5 ast and 1 block 2 years ago, Bosh was putting up 23 and 10 with 2.5 ast and a block 2 years ago, nice try though.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Wayno

    Also, niether of those cats have ever averaged a double double. Bosh has 3 double double seasons.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Wayno

    Nobody is arguing that Bosh is better than prime KG either shutup, I was saying his “leadership” is very overrated. It took 2 superstars and an up and coming PG to get him a ring.

  • shutup

    I’ll concede on LA but amare two years ago his numbers are similiar maybe a rebound less. I just feel I want a pf who is going to the rim hard instead of shutting majority of jumpshots, it still puts him at 5 or 6 if you take him over amare. As for KG he gives the team something the other superstars dont, a backbone he solidifies them on defense, makes them believe they can get those crucial stops, i just try to take in to account what he does as a player beyond the numbers, I think they both have good numbers but KG gives his team more, like getting Powe to over perform making Perkins give 110% stuff like that. good players will get theirs great players make players around them better.

  • http://www.facebook.com/gametimeweezy Gametimeweezy
