Chris Bosh no longer trying to bulk upPosted by Inside Hoops
Bosh tried to bulk up. Gave it is all, truly. But you can’t turn an apple into an orange, you can’t change a thoroughbred into an elephant and you can’t morph Chris Bosh into Alonzo Mourning.
“It’s been like that for three years,” Bosh said on Saturday about the long-term plan to bulk him up and tweak his game. “After about three years I said forget it and just be myself. I’m never going to be big and just bulky like that.
“I’m strong but it’s a wiry strong and it’s two totally different things.”
The muscles are there, but, as Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said on media day, “He’s long; he’s strong.”
And, most importantly, fast.
