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.

Nice, merci. :yeah:

I think the rest was just him talking about athletes branding themselves, his DVD and his tattoo.

Sounds like a dude on his way out.

Sounds like a dude who is considering all options. Smart dude.

He's been quite honest lately. I think enough of Sam rubbed off on him.

I'm thinking Jim Rome would not get too far with Sam Mitchell. Sam doesn't like media, let alone little butt holes like Jim Rome.:haha:

Sam liked Canada's version of Rome enough. Sam disliked the same dumb questions every day. Seeing a guy once for an interview is an entirely different thing.

You don't agree that Jim Rome is a butt hole?

No, I enjoy the Jim Rome show. It's not for everyone.

There are bigger douches in the media than Rome.

...No...I think its down to him and SAS-hole for the sports analyst d-bag of the decade award.

I also like Rome, I like the humor on the show and how he can have fun with his fans ie clones. The guests on his show are great and his interviews are superb. He says what he actually thinks about the topics, doesnt sugarcoat anything. I try to listen to it at work if its ever not insanely busy, sucks I missed it today.
