Should Childbirth Have Prevented Chris Bosh from Playing?
It almost happened. Chris Bosh, he of constant unearned criticism, almost had the birth of a child get in the way of his job. According to ESPN's Brian Windhorst, Bosh flew back to Miami, anticipating his child's arrival. Later, David Aldridge reported on TNT that the kid (who must have had money on the Heat in Game 3) came into this world early Thursday morning.
So it looks as though Miami's power forward prioritized correctly, and it all worked out for him. Good for that guy.
I personally can't relate. While never having had to weigh imminent progeny versus playoff game, my inclination is usually to choose work over domestic bliss. This is, perhaps, a bad life strategy, but it's a hard habit to break.
So I credit Bosh for being different, for going with family over putting a ball through a ring.
Yes, he's paid an immense sum to do what he does, but that's not exactly my concern. If the Heat are okay with their big man taking a game off for this (and I have every reason to think they would be), then why should I be handwringing over what they pay him?
As much as I love basketball, I admire those who understand that it's just a game and a job.
