Losing the way

Bosh turns his talents to the world of late night TV
Bosh said his gig was essentially an on-camera job interview for possible future employment with the late-night variety show, the results of which are expected to air tonight. Fans should tune in, if only for the possible historical significance: Who knows how long it will be before the Raptors get similar screen time on U.S. network TV.

It disturbs to no end that a fine young player like Chris Bosh has moved in this direction … i.e. alter-ego Blaine whatever?, youtube ‘self-promotional’ skits (humourous or otherwise), ‘reporting’ on the NBA Finals for ‘Jay Leno’, etc. … as the LEADER of the Toronto Raptors.

This is NOT how an on-court leader SHOULD carry himself, if he has a goal of winning the NBA championship one day in the not-too-distant future.

It reflects poorly on the entire Raptors’ organization and someone with considerable clout within their club NEEDS to get him to stop this sort of nonsense, which you didn’t see from the Leader of these teams …

PRIOR TO their team winning a championship.

After getting off to a terrific start in his NBA career, CB4 has recently begun to lose his way.

It’s a game about gaining possession of the ballnot personal notoriety.

    i have to agree. i remember when the bulls beat utah for the second time, and karl malone locked himself into his log cabin for a week alone. bosh doesn’t seem to have the same drive. or he is better at getting over things. either way, it doesn’t sit well with me.

  3. Paps Says:

    I disagree.

    Shaq is just as ‘clowny’, goofy and a media guy as Bosh.

    Kobe was charged with rape and can’t do anything right in front of the media.

    Jordan is a known gambler and ‘whored’ himself out to anyone with a chequebook. He had the L and media wrapped around his finger though.

    Who cares about Duncan.

    Dumars is the real leader of the Pistons. Cause is sure as hell isn’t Sheed or any of the other misfits.

    The Dream is cool.

    Forget the rest.

    Now I’m cool with Bosh being himself off the court. I’d rather see him be himself and not care what others think then put on a front. I’ve watched every game and it’s obvious that Bosh is the leader.

    Win first; then, clown after-the-fact.

    Leaders understand this implicitly.

    IMO, when CB4 reverses this order … he is losing his way.
