08:06 AM ET 02.18 | For starters, Chris Bosh's All-Star Game had its own issues. Bosh started Sunday's NBA All-Star Game because his head coach said so. ... Bosh was picked to start ahead of point guards Kyrie Irving and Jrue Holiday, both having outstanding seasons. The move allowed LeBron James to move to point guard, which was cool. But Bosh finished 3-for-9 from the field for six points and added two rebounds, three turnovers and three fouls in a poor performance. The Western Conference won 143-138. The East was minus 14 with Bosh on the court, worst of any player on either side. The ugliest part of the evening was when, in near succession in the second quarter, Chris Paul and Tony Parker dropped dribbles between his legs.

Irving shouldn't have started either. Deng or George should have started. All that game showed was Spo's lack of coaching ability. What kinda of coach starts 4 forwards in an Allstar game?

I think Irving should have been given the start as he was next in line at the PG position. Starting Bosh was a sham move.

A coach who realizes it's an all-star game.

He is. But I was trying to go along with Spo's thinking, if he really wanted 4 forwards he should have picked a more versatile wing forward instead of another post player.

Agreed, the AS game is like coaching on Xbox or on the Playstation.

Bosh has made a huge sacrifice by playing center this season.
