Chris Bosh: ‘I Get a Little Lost Out There’

by November 08, 2010

The least heralded of the Big Three in South Beach has had the toughest time adjusting to his new role and team, and was quite candid about it with the media over the weekend. From the Miami Herald: “Forward Chris Bosh approached teammate LeBron James on Friday night during the Heat’s return flight from New Orleans and wanted to talk — a simple chat between new friends, friends who still had a lot to learn about each other. It was about basketball, but it was also about bonding. Six games into this grand experiment and things were not happening as easily for Bosh as he had originally envisioned. ‘I was just honest,’ Bosh said. ‘I get a little lost out there because it’s different.’ Bosh’s numbers are down to begin the season, but he insists that finding himself on the court among his new teammates cannot be measured by statistics. Bosh was averaging 13.3 points and 5.5 rebounds before Saturday’s win over the Nets … Publicly, Bosh has said the only statistic he cares about is winning. The Heat (5-2) did not win Friday night and Bosh’s reticent demeanor on the court was an obvious factor in the game’s outcome. ‘I’ve kind of been on my heels for the first part of the season, so I’m starting to figure it out; it’s starting to come to me,’ he said after Saturday’s 101-89 victory against the Nets. ‘But at the end of the day, I just have to be aggressive. That’s what it’s all about.'”
