Bosh: Guys shouldn't hustle, people can get hurt

Quote:
Miami Heat power forward Chris Bosh left the United Center limping and upset Saturday night. Not so much at the pain in his left ankle as how it got there.

Bosh sprained the ankle in the Heat's 99-96 loss to the Bulls when Chicago rookie center Omer Asik fell on his leg chasing a loose ball at the end of the third quarter. Bosh was going after the rolling ball when Asik dove to the floor, collapsing Bosh's lower leg.

X-rays were negative but Bosh missed the fourth quarter and may have an MRI in the next few days in Miami to determine the extent of the injury. The initial prognosis is that it wasn't a severe sprain.

"C'mon, that is how guys get hurt, that is how serious injuries happen," Bosh said.

"You've got to watch people's legs. I know guys want to hustle and everything but we all want to play and provide for our families and have a job."

Bosh was immediately frustrated with Asik, who has worked his way into coach Tom Thibodeau's lineup mostly through hustle and fighting for loose balls. Before he left the floor, Bosh shook hands with Asik but still was salty about the play after the game.

"We all want to be healthy and that is very important," said Bosh, who had 11 of his 17 points in the third quarter before the injury. "If it is by somebody's leg, don't dive for the ball, it's too close."

I miss having Bosh on our team.

The guy was a warrior and an allstar. I bet we could be much closer to a .500 record. I bet we would even already be in 8th if he was still here. He was the best at everything even as a fan. Remember when he told the fans how to cheer for the team? People should listen to Bosh because he is the best.

and it's true people shouldn't hustle when they're up against Bosh because he will beat them every single time if he actually tries. Hustle is useless up against CB1.

i hate it when i play basketball and people hustle.
i totally understand where Bosh is coming from.
imagine playing a game against other teams and their players are hustling and playing hard against you, imagine how upsetting that must be. like seriously, these guys are already getting paid millions in guaranteed money, why should they go overboard and hustle when they dont have too?
bosh is bang on with this one. people playing the heat should just chill and play for fun. hustling is overrated and uneeded.

No comment. I think he's glad that we're giving him this much attention.

The bulls were playing out of control. That being said, Bosh should keep his mouth shut with regards to people diving at his knees. That being said, who said "guys shouldn't hustle, people can get hurt"?

He never said guys shouldn't hustle. Nobody hustled more than him in this game. He was pissed about being injured. It's amazing how the posts here have made it into something it absolutely isn't. There does have to be some limitations in this game to avoid injury. This isn't one of those cases, but it isn't hard to see how he might feel that way initially, especially since this is how he gets injured, at about this time every year. Crucify him for being frustrated, fine. But let's not make out as if he's suggesting in any way that guys should not hustle. That never came out of his mouth. It was never implied. The suggestion was that guys need to avoid crashing into another guy's legs, in the same way that it gets suggested that defenders should not close out on jumpshooters to the extent that they come down on the defender's feet. It was a poor observation, in that Asik did not appear to be aware of Bosh's presence until he was falling. And it was whining, but somewhat understandably. Although the man is pure evil, so who knows, I could be under some kind of spell.

bosh might want to consider not putting his foot right under a guy who is diving for the ball.

If it's a loose ball players should dive for it whether the legs are in the way or not. If you don't want to get hurt then move out the fucking way.
