Exclamation Teams don't like Bosh's attention seeking

Quote:
Chris Bosh's camera-crew entourage.
Bucher said Bosh is filming a documentary and there are reports of boom mikes and cameras in the war rooms he's meeting in. Probably not a deal breaker, but teams may start questioning if he cares more about being famous/money or winning basketball games.
Additionally, the longer Dwyane Wade travels the country flirting with other teams, the harder it's going to be for the Heat to finalize their plans. Oh, and it just so happens that Bosh and Wade had dinner together last night, taking a picture with an empty chair and saying "someone is missing."


But ESPN’s Ric Bucher is reporting that some teams — specifically the Bulls — are a little edgy about Bosh’s obsession with social media and publicity, which includes filming a documentary about his free agent experience.

It amuses me to think of Pat Riley, who prefers to conduct business in private, laying out his Heat vision in front of Bosh’s cameras.

While it's not enough to make me hate the guy or forget what he gave to the Raptors while he played here, it is kinda annoying. He's a smart business man, but really i just want him to be a basketball player.

Meh. I don't disagree, but he's young. He's in his early 20's and is famous. It's gotta be kinda addictive for him.

You wonder if his value is purposely being pushed down.

Fact of the matter is, secrecy is mainly good because you control the flow of information! As it stands Bosh has no control over himself and therefore he can't release information as desired to pump his value!

I think teams are right to be worried.

sorry, but i find it completely ridiculous.

I mean film crew following the guy around while he does his NBA things? are you kidding me?

The thing that leaves me utterly dumb-founded is that Mr. Bosh actually thinks enough people are interested in his off the court life and dealings. Like one piece of shit movie about him and his tattoo wasn't enough!

On a positive note, I look forward to a new era of raptor ball.

Give the guy a break. He's been playing in Canada for 7 years. Who cares if he is getting a little attention now. Chris, thanks for all the years you put in Toronto.

I couldn't care less about this. He's getting some attention and is milking it, I don't care. Let him. He was good to this city for 7yrs. Good luck to him in Miami.

exactly the sort of thng wrong with Bosh.

More concerned about himself thaqn anything else, and he wasnt good to toronto at all. It was nothing more than a staging ground to up his value.

Ariza, Scola, Battier, Picks

Ariza, Scola, Pick,Jack, Weems to NO for Okafor, Paul, Posey

And Housston would still win with a lineup of

Brooks
Martin
Bud
Bosh
Yao

Bringing cameras IN TO MEETINGS is insanely unprofessional. If that happened and I was the gm I would tell him to take the cameras out of my office. If e put up any resistance I would tell him to get the fuck out.

The biggest problem in the sports world is the lack of professional behaviour by management and players.

That is why I respect the spurs. It is all business to them.

Chris Bosh Responds

Quote:
Chris Bosh responded to criticism that his documentary following his free agency process is a distraction that is making certain front office people question his desire to win.

"I don't film my meetings," said Bosh on Twitter. "I am a professional. Having control of your own media is a distraction, but when other networks do it, it's not?"

the part I'd find interesting is how much is this filmmaking process influencing the way in which he conducts himself on the market? People posture for the cameras all the time, so how much of your decision making process is influenced by the question, "does this make for a good movie?"

I would imagine the Bulls are most worried about Twitter, and that would be my biggest concern. I don't think there's much of a place for Twitter anywhere in this world, let alone in the hands of athletes. There is very little upside to it. Very few fans are that concerned with every little unimportant detail. And the downside is the team suffering from a lack of control over unimportant details that get taken the wrong way or just become annoying, which is pretty much inevitable.
