The first enemy was the television. Once Chris Bosh decided to come to Miami and team with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, they were on it every day.

“I turned the TV off,’’ Bosh said. “I don’t watch too much TV.’’

He said he has watched 90 percent of the playoff games, “but sports shows and stuff like that, I’ve learned not to watch.’’

He’s always a few clicks away from finding a pundit who needs a punching bag, and everyone has gotten in a few licks on the Heat this season.

The decision to pull the plug came pretty quickly.

“First week,’’ Bosh said.
