Raptors Notebook: Bosh thinks team could stand to get nastier
On Tuesday … Chris Bosh, the team’s star, said that no, his team is not tough enough.
“I don’t think so,” Bosh said. “I think we have the potential to do that. Have we been the last month? I don’t think so.”
So the reporter then turned to coach Sam Mitchell, who deftly avoided the question despite some persistence …
“… if Chris feels that way, he is in the locker room with those guys and he understands his teammates. We just got to get back to being aggressive in the way that we play, on defence, on offence. If that entails being a little bit more nastier, than that’s what it entails. If our captain feels that way, then I agree with him.”
Which calls to mind ‘the Truth’ of the following line of dialogue from Clint Eastwood’s Academy Award-winning film, ‘Million Dollar Baby’,
“Girlie, tough ain’t enough.” – Frankie Dunn
