Chris Bosh: Miami Heat Third Wheel's Most Awkward Game Faces

0 of 5

    Besides being up to his ears in criticism as to how fruitless he is to the Miami Heat franchise when compared to either LeBron James or Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh is also plagued with a bad case of game face.

    Every basketball player has experienced it at one time or another. They score, they scream. Some mouths are wider than others.

    However, Bosh always ends up with some of the most awkward game faces I have ever seen in my entire life. Surely anyone who has ever watched a Miami game since his arrival in South Beach understands the sentiment.

    Another problem for Bosh, you ask? He always gets caught in a snapshot.

The "Bench Betta Have My Money" Face

    This one is a weird mixture of a smirk and an upper-lip sniff.

    What exactly was going on? Who knows?

    But Chris Bosh was captured scrunching his face up while Dexter Pittman’s regular smile does nothing to make him look less like a predator.

    Bosh has much worse instances than this, but this still ranks as one of his weirdest in comparison to his environment. 

The "Constipation Celebration" Face

    Squint your eyes really hard.

    Open your mouth wide and prevent your teeth from showing.

    Put both arms out beside you as if you are using shake weights, and this too can be you.

    Chris Bosh scores and the world is treated to another unique in-game face, to say the least.

    They are becoming more and more of a treat as Bosh emerges as one of the league’s most compatible animal look-alikes.

The "I Have to Battle Dwight Under the Rim" Face

    Just teasing about Bosh being remotely scared when facing Dwight Howard, but the thought of it does make you giggle, doesn’t it?

    The forward’s wide-eyed glance does nothing to make him seem normal.

    As a matter of fact, it mildly reminds me of the fortune teller from Eve’s Bayou. 

The "Victorious Anteater" Face

    This one is my favorite.

    Not really sure what was happening, or exactly what led to Chris Bosh contorting his face to look like a cross between a ferocious anteater and a precocious five-year-old, but it was entertaining nonetheless.

The "Screaming Ostrich" Face

    Aaah. Alas, we have arrived.

    This is probably the funniest thing about the Miami Heat.

    Not their pregame celebrations. Not LeBron James' puzzling hand motions as the National Anthem comes to a close. Not even the constant badgering for LeBron to just shave it all off already.

    Chris Bosh’s “Screaming Ostrich” face is the most perplexing thing about the organization.

    It is one of those guilty pleasures that no one wants to admit to. Don’t worry. I’ll do it for you.
