Chris Bosh Says Things Had Been ‘Too Pretty’ for Miami Prior to Game 1 Loss

For Chris Bosh and the Miami Heat, there was no need to panic following the surprising Game 1 loss to the visiting Chicago Bulls. Instead, Bosh took a philosophical approach to things, arguing that the Heat needed this type of adversity in order to regain their focus. Per Fox Sports: “It’s been a little bit too pretty around here, to be honest with you,’ Heat center Chris Bosh said after the loss. ‘Everybody is going to kiss your (butt) a little bit (when it’s pretty) and everything’s hunky-dory. But you don’t just show up in this league and win games.’ The Heat seemingly had been able to do that since their incredible run started Feb. 3. Well, against teams other than the Bulls. Since then, Miami is 2-2 against the Bulls and 39-1 against everyone else. During this calendar year, the Heat have lost three times to Chicago. ‘I really believe that we just give them our all,’ guard Nate Robinson said of Chicago’s success against the Heat. ‘We just go out and play.’ [...] One might say the Heat were dusting cobwebs off Monday after having not played since finishing off a 4-0 first-round sweep of Milwaukee on April 28. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra shrugged off that being a factor, but that opinion was not unanimous. ‘They haven’t played in a long time, so they were a little rusty,’ said center Joakim Noah, whose Bulls won at Brooklyn on Saturday in Game 7 of a first-round series. It sure looked that way at the start. The Heat missed their first seven shots and fell behind 8-2. ‘We wanted to defy the odds and not come out sluggish, but we did,’ said guard Dwyane Wade, who had 14 points in his return after missing the finale against Milwaukee due to a sore knee and actually looked less sluggish than most Miami players on a night the Heat shot 39.7 percent.”

    Did anyone hear Bosh lay into Ray Allen late in fourth quarter? Ray got beat for a 3 or a layup or something and Bosh barked on him like it was his kid!

    For a role player off the bench, those numbers are not bad. But I guess for a overhyped “superstar”, then yeah, Bosh shouldn’t be talking.

    Be funny as hell if Bulls take Game 2 tho. Will ESPN, and bandwagnoners still blame it on “rust”?

    Bosh is overhyped? Really?

  • Caboose

    To be fair, Ray’s defense was AWFUL that game.

    Wade agrees with this message from Bosh – he looked at himself in the mirror and said to himself “i look too pretty, i can’t wait to rock this blouse to the post game interview” Note to self Wade, never ever ever ever ever rock a blouse again…ever ever forever never rock a blouse again bro!

    No, if Lebron did it, I’d call it barking on him like a little kid. Lol

    It really was, it was just funny to hear. Don’t think I’ve ever seen Bosh react that way to a teammate.
