Chris Bosh Expects Erik Spoelstra to Start Him in All-Star Game

With Rajon Rondo out, there’s some mystery as to who will replace him in the starting lineup of the NBA All-Star Game in the Eastern Conference. Erik Spoelstra, who will make the call, has been coy about the whole thing, but Chris Bosh expects his coach to give him the nod in Houston. Per Fox Sports: “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 said. 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. [...] ‘Hell, yeah,’ Bosh said of wanting to start. ‘Whether I do start or I don’t start, people will always have opinions. But it’s all for fun. Have some fun and go out there and have a good time.’ [...] ‘That’s fair,’ Bosh said of Cleveland fans being upset if he starts. ‘You got to root for your guy. I know they’re very excited because they have an All-Star and Kyrie Irving is very good. But you can’t please everybody.’”

    they need to throw away the game and have one on one tournaments with the superstars from every position except pf and c

    DUH..KG would gladly concede that role anyway because he only plays about 25 mins a game.

    Entitled bastard isnt he? Either way, a point guard went out, a point guard should replace.

    Plus Kyrie’s season > Bosh’s season.

    FOH Bosh! He need to listen to Angry Man! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4FWehvMZH30

    What if they took the guy who had the most votes that wasn’t a starter?

    If he does start, that 23 year old record should have an asterisk beside it. The Heat coach shouldn’t be able to decide if his team gets that aknowledgement or not, even though it’s a meaningless title. That said, Kyrie should start over him anyway. Don’t worry Bosh…at least you still have that HoF spot to look forward to.

  • Ugh

    And those three starters were: Magic Johnson, James Worthy and… AC Green. He played 12 minutes, the least on the West and second least in the whole game, behind Rodman.

    I think Bosh is every bit the All Star starter AC Green was.

  • spit hot fiyah

    that would be the rational approach, but this is the nba all-star game we are talking about

    I get it, Chalmers will start.
