08:55 AM ET 01.17 | The Heat's schedule is easing at a good time for recovery, which Chris Bosh could now use after colliding with Bulls forward Omer Asik. Asik took out Bosh's legs while diving for a loose ball. Bosh then questioned Asik's tactic after the game, saying the play could have caused serious harm. "That is how guys get hurt," Bosh said. "That is how serious injuries happen ... You've got to watch people's legs. I know guys want to hustle and everything but we all want to play and provide for our families and have a job." While expressing anger in Asik's hustle play, Bosh realized things could have been worse. He called the injury "mild" and considered himself fortunate.

Hey RuPaul, how about making now a reservation to some survival boot camp this summer?
Or an MMA 101 course perhaps?

Quick! Somebody call the waahhmbulance!!

But seriously, shut up, Bosh. If your reputation is for being soft, you are doing nothing to quiet your critics. Not to mention, if that's how you feel, then you shouldn't have willfully put a target on your back in the off-season. Asik was doing what most "winners" do to win: try harder. Not everybody has the luxury of taking the easy way to victory by joining the two best players in the NBA in South Beach...

Yea right. What the freak is he talkin about. Don't they recognize every team is out to hurt them?

I watched that game of course... And if Bosh wasn't allergic to diving on the floor he would have never got his ankle rolled up on. When three guys go to the floor and you just try to bend down your just not matching the other teams hustle... but Bosh wasn't doing that all game. Once again he has proved to be nothing more than a a soft jump shooter.

And was Rose complaining about being undercut in the 4th quarter in that game? of course not.
