Chris bosh

After all that’s gone on with him in these NBA playoffs, that makes entire sense that Bosh wouldn’t let little things like attention and the moment get to him because it has been a rocky and difficult road for Bosh to get here with the Miami Heat to face the Oklahoma City Thunder in a best-of-seven series.

He missed nine games with a torn stomach muscle.

He had to fly back and forth between Miami and New York to be with his wife when she gave birth to the couple’s first child.

He had to deal with the trauma of the death of a personal masseuse, who collapsed in his home and died hours later.

It has not been an easy journey by stretch of the imagination.

“I’m not just happy to be here,” he said. “Last year, I was just a little happy to be here, everything was great and grand. I’m just here to take care of business this year.

“That comes with experience … I think I’m just better suited this year because as team we have more confidence, I have more confidence and that’s a big part of what you need.

“I’m more confident this year and I know what to expect.”
