The 2.5 stars jokes bother Chris Bosh a little

The easy joke to make about Chris Bosh this season is that he's no star. That the Heat have a Big Two and he's just the outsider with a really small head and a giant mouthpiece.

He's heard all of that all season long. He heard it when Carlos Boozer made a comment saying the Heat have two stars. And Bosh has put together maybe his best string of games all season so far against the Bulls, going for 30 in Game 1 and 34 in Game 3. He's averaging 24.7 points per game so far in the series along with 7.3 rebounds.

Bosh went on WQAM in Miami and was asked about the "2.5 stars" jokes that have been made and if Carlos Boozer made him made.

“He didn’t piss me off. It wasn’t like I was just thinking of that quote the whole time. It didn’t do much for me. It did motivate me at times, but it wasn’t the main source. I get inspiration from everywhere and that wasn’t the main thing.”

He was then asked if it bothers him people say the Heat have just two stars.

“I’m not going to lie it gets under my skin a little bit. I always say okay I never asked to be the “Big Three,” and it’s like okay a joke is a joke. Come on I am trying my best? The fact that it was hard. It made it hard to not get offended. It’s like I’m working over here. All I wanted to do was win and that was early. Now you just don’t care.”

Bosh has always been portrayed as a bit of a sensitive guy. Call him soft, "fake tough" or whatever else, he doesn't exactly have a reputation like Kevin Garnett.

Against Boston in Game 3, he admitted that his nerves maybe got to him a bit and that he was rattled. That sort of stuff doesn't really help the reputation, Chris.

But in this series, when his team needs him most, he's producing. Is that because he's extra motivated? Who knows. If it really works like that maybe LeBron needs to say the Heat have just one star so that Dwyane Wade gets jumpstarted a bit.

That's not at all fair.   2.8 stars is more accurate.  And that's a compliment.

Just another hater with a crystal ball for predicting the future! You know what, I'll take those 7 championships, I'm having fun. Really enjoying the games. Took down another team with the "big three" + Rondo pretty easily. Your Bulls have put up a great fight, but their fans are the whiny ones now, like you. Dallas has a ton of weapons, root for them! Keep hating you loser! Get a life!

Bosh is a cerebral type of guy - Oh my, you've got to be kidding!!!
No I am definitely serious.  What makes you think anything otherwise?  He actually is able to answer questions in an articulate manner and you can see he gives his answers some thought before opening his mouth.  Some of the players interviewed sound like they never took an English class or invested in a speech coach. Do know something that I dont know about the meaning of cerebral?

Point blank, when Bosh comes out the closet for being a fag, Homos are going to get offended... that's how soft Bosh is.

The whiny Bosh is always crying and moaning about his status because he believes in the old saying: "The truth hurts!" He manned down last summer and ran away from a leadership role in Toronto so that he could hang out with the big boys in Miami. I don't care what you say because this whiner is a whiner like Lecon is a whiner. Now we know that Lecon is a superior talent but he too ran away from a challenge and leadership role to team with another whiner named DumbWade so that they could grace our presence with 7 consecutive NBA titles. Wanna make a bet? Betcha' Bosh will be the first whiner of the 3-Amigo-Fake-Beatles-LeConEsque-Hea

tles to cry wolf and run away with his woofing tail between his legs while he plays the blame game because he didn't get the ball ("Just give me the dang ball yall!!) enough and had his little ego bruised because they boys played too rough with him. Thank goodness Haslem is back to protect his soft Azz. He'll cry and blame the media and all of "the haters' out there who want to rain on their make-pretend parade.

Its pretty clear that Bosh is a cerebral type of guy in addition to be blessed to be able to play ball at the pro level.  It seems to me if he is confident enough to say that things bother him or he had a touch of the nerves at times, why is that something that is deemed sensitive?  Those things dont make you sensitive, they make you human.  I teach my kids all the time that courage is not the absence of fear.  Courage is being afraid of something and doing it anyway. If only  more jocks would let go of the tough guy image people would be able to see that they are human and what they are able to accomplish is the result of hard work, dedication, courage, and not just some gift from God that fell into their laps.
