Chris Bosh

To be the man on a losing team or be a side piece on a winning team. It has been a question players have asked themselves for years.

Chris Bosh didn’t have to join the Miami Heat, he could have stayed in Toronto or went to another franchise and been their #1 or #2 at least, but he decided to join the South Beach NWO. Even though he is the Michelle Williams  to LeBron and D Wade, Beyonce and Kelly Rowland, he is more famous and has a ring because of his sacrifice.

“I always thought about being The Man,” said Chris Bosh, who then invoked a name greater than his alpha-and-omega teammate. “I always wanted to be Jordan. That’s what I wanted to be.”

“One thing I’ve learned since I’ve been here is what you really have to sacrifice in order to be on a winning team,” said Bosh. “

“I had to reprogram myself,” he admitted. “You have to submerge yourself in the team, and sometimes it’s doing things you don’t want to do. It’s whatever the team needs, and usually you have to listen to your coach to know what the team needs. You can’t be like, well, this is what I’m going to do to help this team. It doesn’t work like that.”

Bosh made the right decision and the Heat wouldn’t have been in the last two NBA Finals and favored to make it again without him.

He will be more appreciated after the Heat finished their run.

    Bosh and James both deserve credit for doing this. Growing up my friends and I used to always wonder if winning was really as important as players make it out to be. If it was really the most important thing then they would sacrifice salary and status to join a team that can win a ring. James never got the credit he deserved for doing this and neither did Bosh.
