Who would Chris Bosh prefer to take the last shot on the Miami Heat?

     The timing and irony of this is very sweet considering the events of last evening.  It was revealed today in an article with GQ that Chris Bosh would prefer to have Dwyane Wade take the last shot.


GQ: Quick hypothetical, toes aside: Let’s say the game was tied. 10 seconds left. You had 30 points, LeBron’s got 30, and Wade’s got 30. You got the same amount of rebounds, same amount of assists—having the same great game. Who takes the shot at the end to either win or loose the game.
GQ: Why?
Chris Bosh: Because of his success in the past, given what he’s done. He’s a champ. He’s an MVP, and he’s hit a bunch of last-second shots. That’s the time you have to put pride aside a little bit, and do what’s best for the team. He’s quickest, and he’s gonna get a shot off. He relishes those moments.


Consider this,
last evening LeBron James had a chance to give the Heat a one point lead with only five seconds remaining by sinking two free throws.  James split the pair and that caused the Heat to go into overtime with the Clippers and eventually lose.  During the 4th quarter, James missed 4 free throws while attempting 8 "50%" and even acknowledged after the game that he had to work on his free throws.  Can one really blame Chris Bosh for feeling the way that he does, when "The King" appeared and hindered LeBron James once again?

Should the Big Three be called the Big Two?

When the lights are on and the cameras are rolling, the stars shine.  Twice already this season when victory called his name, Dwyane Wade answered with game winners.  On a night last week in Atlanta when both Wade and James were out with injuries, Chris Bosh proved that yes, he belonged in the same class as Dwyane Wade and LeBron James by dropping 33 points, 14 rebounds, and 5 assists and by draining a 3 point shot to send the game into the first overtime, the Heat were victorious in the third overtime.  With that said, two of the "Big Three" have showed up this season but it's not the two that everyone had expected.  LeBron James is a great talent and he puts up stats in bunches but there was a time when Vince Carter put up stats as well.  Something is clearly missing from James and has been for sometime, as Skip Bayless says some have the clutch gene and some do not and at this stage of his career, LeBron James is absent of that clutch gene but as I wrote in my post The King and I: LeBron James there still is a chance for hope.  Once upon a time, greats like David Robinson and Dirk Nowitzki were labeled as soft, choke artist.  I still giggle to myself when I see clips of Hakeem Olajuwon "Dream Shaking" the soul out of David Robinson but those two ended up with 3 champions between them; there is hope for LeBron James but time........is running out.  Do you really blame Chris Bosh for being honest?
