It wasn't long ago that I posted the second installment of the “Everybody Hates Chris Bosh” series on Bleacher Report to point out exactly why Bosh should not be using a game against the Phoenix Suns as a test for his success.
I didn’t think I’d be publishing the third installment here on the same day.
It just so happens that I only now tuned into an extremely controversial offhanded remark that Bosh made to a reporter regarding his coach: “He wants us to work, we want to chill. We gotta meet halfway.”
Can you imagine Michael Jordan saying this?
Can you imagine Kobe Bryant saying this?
Heck, I can’t even imagine Dwyane Wade (who has a championship) saying this!
The 110-million-dollar man who just wants to chill?
Apparently Erik Spoelstra upset Chris Bosh by putting the team (who had three days off between games) through a couple of practices on both Monday and Tuesday.
The Miami Heat have a lot of expectations to meet this year, and it’s a given that that is just the nature of the beast in South Beach. They are in the pressure cooker in a manner of speaking.
Obviously Spoelstra has some major issues, with half of Miami calling for his firing. For him to put a 6-4 team that is not first or second in its division through an intense workout on its days off is completely understandable.
The practices were obviously worth their weight in gold because the Heat followed it up by trouncing the Suns and are now 7-4.
The Miami Heat agenda has been set by LeBron James and the Miami Thrice. They put the pressure on themselves...and unfortunately they are going to have to deal with it.
So Chris Bosh putting his foot in his mouth like this or LeBron scheduling parties well in advance after every game (win or lose) is not sending a serious message to the rest of the NBA.
"We got back to getting after it again; I guess [Spoelstra] felt he was loosening up a little bit too much," Bosh said, according to ESPN. "He knows he has to meet us halfway. He wants to work; we want to chill."
I’ve been to South Beach several times, and Bosh has a point. It’s a great place to chill.
Was I actually hearing these words right, or was Bosh putting both of his feet in his mouth at the exact same time? I replayed the message several times and came to the conclusion that Chris Bosh has a major foot fetish for his own feet!

Here is what Miami fans themselves are saying right now about Chris Bosh (Miami Herald):
Posted by: dmanasseh | Thursday, November 18, 2010 at 01:07 PM I am very disturbed by Bosh words last night unless him and Lebron are trying to get Spoelstra secretly fired. WE WANT TO CHILL??? This is why i want Riley back. Spoelstra lets these guys do whatever they want so that he can be down with them. I want a tuff coach. Not a player friendly coach. At least hire JEFF VAN GUNDY
Posted by: Ricky | Thursday, November 18, 2010 at 01:21 PM WE WANT TO CHILL??? WHAT THE HECK THEY WANT TO CHILL FOR??? THEY HAVENT WON ANYTHING BUT THEY WANT TO CHILL ALREADY... IF THATS NOT ENOUGH EVIDENCE THAT THE COACH NEEDS TO GO...
"He wants to work; we want to chill."
Then you should have stayed up north in Canada instead of coming to Miami, fool. What's all this talk about you wanting a championship? You think Wade and LeBricks is going to carry you while you "chill" on the court?
