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.'”
