Kevin Love, is not the only one who suffered through tough times while playing for the association.
NBA player opens up in an interview with ESPN’s Jackie Macmullan how his anxieties affected him as he took his talents to South Beach.
“I was coming from Toronto, a benign situation,” Bosh says. “I figured, ‘All right, people are going to understand why I went, and they are going to like me.’ That’s all I cared about — that people liked me.
“I go there, and I’m smiling, and everyone is scowling at me. The whole LeBron ‘Decision’ had everybody so mad. I don’t know why, but I caught so many stray bullets being around it. Then we lost [in the 2011 NBA Finals to Dallas], and people were dogging me. I started to get pretty bitter.”
Below is what he said regarding the viral video after the defeat to the Dallas Mavericks in the NBA Finals. Year One of the Heatles.
“All those people who made fun of me for breaking down, they didn’t understand,” Bosh says. “I put my life into this. I was getting it from all sides, and then we lose. I expressed my feelings, and then they made fun of me for that. I was too honest. I just couldn’t win.”
NBA fans want to see Bosh succeed. We hope to see the big man on the court one last time.
