Default Chris Bosh on Jim Rome

Was listening to Rome at lunch and here's what I caught

- Worked out in Dallas in a "Rocky-like" gym
- Put the extra muscle on to play primarily in the paint
- Found previously he would be pushed around by other players but now he feels he's more on an even keel
- Put the time in the gym with both personal improvement and team improvement in mind
- Feels if he wants to be considered the best forward in the game he needs to think that he is the best and work from there
- Keeps 2010 in the back of his mind but is aware teams are targeting him
- Looking for consistency, realizes he's been inconsistent in his career, but if he continues to get to the FT line and work in the paint his numbers should remain where they are
- Looked back over the 7 years he was in Toronto said it has had it's ups and downs like any place
- Said Toronto is cold
- Mentioned that even though it's a "Hockey Town", the fans are extremely loyal and they have a good following
- Asked what's important to him...winning and feeling happy. His ultimate goal is to win a championship

After that, I had to stop listening. If anyone else caught it, please feel free to add.
