yep, still remember him saying this:

"I mean, really it's all about being on TV at the end of the day," Bosh said following the pre-game shoot around.
"Seriously, a guy can average (20 points and 10 rebounds) and nobody cares. If you don't see it, it doesn't really happen."
A lack of popularity definitely played a role in his decision to leave Toronto. He cared for it at one point but it seems that he has given up. Unfortunately due to all the jokes in the past (Rupaul of big men, "Like a Bosh") it made it pretty entertaining for some to poke fun at the guy and who knows if he'll ever be taken seriously.

Excellent analogy.
