Chris Bosh on struggle to fit in in Miami; Kobe’s 81-point night
Miami Heat big man Chris Bosh joined the show to talk about his season and more. Bost touched on a wide range of subjects. Here are some of his remarks:
— Bosh talked about adjusting when he came to Miami with Dwyane Wade and LeBron James. “It was tough personally,” Hill said. “I had to really figure out what was going to help the team. …. That was the most challenging thing I’ve ever done in my career. As a primary scorer, you used to get the ball in the post and everybody get out of the way. With this, I had to learn to spread the wealth and take a backseat. I had to take my ego out of it and that was extremely hard to do.
— Bosh on Kobe Bryant: “He’s the greatest player of my generation. He was that guy after Mike that really just won. He was about winning championships. He did it at a young age. It was amazing for him to climb up so high, so fast.
— On being a Raptor when Kobe scored 81 on Toronto: “He only had 26 at the half. A lot of people don’t know that. He had 55 in the second half. He had some incredible shots in the game.
— Bosh said he didn’t want his kids to see him when he was sick last year: “I had to really get over myself because I didn’t want them to see me like that.”
