Default Why Chris Bosh will never be a great player

Quote:
Bosh Gives Up Trying To Gain Weight
October 3, 2007 - 12:23 pm
Toronto Star -
Chris Bosh has given up trying to intentionally gain weight on his 6-foot-10 frame after failing to add much girth despite his best efforts.

"I think for the past two summers I was really concentrating on gaining weight and after I stayed the same weight, I just concentrated on getting stronger,” he said here after a training camp practice. “As long as I stay in the weight room, continue to lift … if I get stronger, I’ll be good.”

Bosh’s game isn’t predicated on muscle, he’s more of a finesse big man so adding dozens of pounds isn’t a prerequisite. He’s still able to defend other power forwards without being tossed around like a rag doll, a very big rag doll. “I think I’m just going to weigh what I weigh,” he said. And that’s about 230 pounds.

Give up?! I like Bosh but please...

And Bosh isn't 6'10". I don't know why some "experts" make that mistake (especially ones from Toronto).

Did you not read, he is going to get stronger instead. Nothing wrong with that he is doing whats best for him. Not like he didn't try to gain weight.

hippos, you're clearly out of your depth in this topic. Chris Bosh would be great if he showed up to camp like Sean May or Eddy Curry, only then can he be a great player.

On a side note, I'd really enjoy it if Bosh took whatever "supplements" Hoffa takes.

Kevin Garnett weighed 225 until a couple years ago at 7 feet. How did his career go? Remind me.

first round defeat after first round defeat for many years with one highlight to the WCF.

pending Finals run, but until it happens, can't say anything about it


as for Bosh

one first round defeat. many more to go if your analogy holds

The extra fat would help support his Etheopian girl neck. I guess you have a point.

You'd think Hoffa would be caught if he took "supplements", but the you realize he sucks so much that Stern would never waste his time.

Also being a perennial top 5 or 10 player in the league. It's not Garnett's fault that the Wolves management has been god awful and other than for one year, has failed to put anything of value around him.

Yes, because the lastthing he needs is his head bobbling off.
