08:09 AM ET 12.15 | Cast as the third wheel of the Big Three in Miami, Chris Bosh may be as responsible as any for whatever success the Heat enjoy in 2011-12. [His] Finals defeat confirmed just how hungry he was for the ultimate level of success. So in an eventful offseason that included his wedding, Bosh couldn't get basketball out of his mind. He couldn't get over how excited he was to return to the NBA floor, or how confident he was that he'd return to that floor a better, more consistent, more championship-worthy player. "I thought about it every day," Bosh said. ... "[If] a gym wasn't available, I'd be in the weight room, just doing something to improve. Because I'm thinking about those other teams every day. I'm thinking about the Mavericks every day."

Should have just come home, Bro.

But you had to go be Lebron's lap dog...

Chris you boyfriend needs to play tougher in the 4th quarter for you to win.

Haha - As much as just about everyone dislikes the Ego-Trio you know they are always going to be in the mix - It just makes it that much more fun to root for the underdogs....

It should be on your mind Bosh....I hope the Heat win it this year just so everyone can be pissed. Hate the Heat all you want but get use to seeing them in the finals.

I like the Heat's chances but they didn't do anything to get better this summer. No improved point guard... no improved center. I just don't get their plan. The East won't be easy this year. As for Bosh, he's just a talker. He's not around when it counts most...

At best you'll always be Ringo and at worst you're Pete Best. You'll never be the front man.

It's a good thing we didn't get him. Now we have a better version of him in Odom. Same size but Odom has a more all around game.

Doesn't make up for the lose of Tyson Chandler though

he averaged 21 points and 8 rebounds on 55% shooting in the last 3 games of the finals.
it's fine if you personally don't like the guy, but get your head out of your ****.

they don't have to get better personel wise. if labron can somehow not get a brainfreez in the 4th quarter of the finals miami will be fine. If labron does half of what he's capable of in the finals there good. People hate on miami so much they forget the obvious. Last yr finals was an upset. Dallas didn't beat miami, miami beat themselves. Labron scored 14 or 15 points in all the 4th quarters combines in the finals??? If labron is half of him in the finals mia are champions. As soon as labron stops becoming his own worse enemy mia will be smooth sailing to chips.
