Chris Bosh has always been called the third wheel of the big three. He doesn’t have the star power that Dwyane and LeBron have because he played for Toronto, where he was the only option. After coming to Miami, he hasn’t been an All-Star starter and this year is no different. Bosh got snubbed again, but a year later, he realizes it doesn’t matter.
Bosh has been the guy who has kept the Heat’s passion alive all season. With D-Wade and LeBron getting injured, he was the one that led the team. When he had to score, he did. Bosh led he Heat to a triple overtime victory against the Hawks, yet still hears he is not a star. To him, it doesn’t matter anymore. In an interview with the Sun-Sentinel in Miami, Bosh was quoted as saying, “”I just try to be the best player I can be.” And that’s all he needs to be.
Bosh has the right attitude. He left a team that he was a star on just to win a championship. To him, the ring means more than any All-Star game or award. After the finals last year, Bosh was seen crying about losing. People called him a baby, but everyone who is a Heat fan knows how much it meant to him. Chris Bosh is an All-Star, whether he’s a starter or not is debatable, but he is definitely as capable as any other power forward in the league. And what makes him even better than every other power forward is that he isn’t full of himself. Bosh does it for the ring and not for the glory.
