Heat Bosh left Toronto to be on US National TV?

Quote:
Chris Bosh elaborated on the reason he skipped Toronto for Miami this past summer.

It wasn’t the colour of the money or the chill in the air or the curling on TV. It’s that he wants to be on TV. Once a legend of YouTube, Bosh said that after seven seasons in northland, he was ultimately disheartened by the Raptors’ scarce appearances on the U.S. tube.

“Really, it’s all about being on TV at the end of the day,” the five-time all-star said Tuesday. “Seriously. A guy can average 20 (points) and 10 (rebounds), and nobody really cares. If you don’t see it (on U.S. national TV), then it doesn’t really happen.”

Quote:
It will be a quieter season that begins on Wednesday night in Toronto without the five-time all-star — Bosh doesn’t make his return to the Air Canada Centre until Feb. 16 — but Bosh’s split has created its share of noise. Bryan Colangelo, the Raptors GM, has accused Bosh of mentally checking out late last season. Bosh acknowledged that the late-season focus on his future wore on him.

“I had to block it out every day, and that takes energy,” said Bosh of the speculation on his free agency. “It was a distraction the whole time.”

What a douche. I already have everything but I want more and that's all I care about. Yah, you're a class act, Chris Bosh.

haha. If you're dropping 20-10 on a contending team you will get noticed regardless of where it is televised. It's not Canada's fault. Heck, Al Jefferson wasn't given much credit when he dropped 20-10 with the T'Wolves. I bet too many people here didnt know about that. Why? Minnesota's awful.


You got what you wanted Chris, America enjoyed watching you make 3/11 FGs.

Once again, Bosh is unable to step up against an elite team. Dw, pad those stats against Philly and Charlotte

*sigh*.... you made the all-star team 5 times and were an olympian Chris.... what more do you want in terms of recognition?

Sad to hear that stuff.

Pretty sure that tonight won't be a typical game for him though.

I can't believe he actually admitted that. Its a bit pathetic really. Whether he's in Canada or US it doesn't really matter, he's just dull. I mean VC was able to get the American media pretty hyped in his time here.

You know, he doesn't care about points or rebs, but just be on national TV, so with Wade and LBJ he will allways be on....so beautifull.

This.... and this.



What a total ass hole. Who is whispering in his ear, and why can't he figure out what's just plain stupid.

How stupid can he get? How come he was offered a max contract if people didn't know about him? I don't think he will be the one to talk to on TV before LeBron and Wade. Enjoy being a sidekick in Miami.

I saw him interviewed last night. He'll get as much media time as the others, why.....because he craves it and looks for it more then Lebron and certainly more then Wade who's pretty quiet. He's a media whore.

I was gonna play devil's advocate here but I just couldn't...

I mean this is a really bad excuse. Needing US national exposure? I just don't understand why that's important in the first place?

If he said, I want to be part of a winning organization etc. then fine, I can take that. But this? No. I mean VC was here and he was on ESPN all the time back in the day. He was the leading vote getter. The team was showed on NBC and ESPN all the time. People knew who he was, so I just don't get these comments at all.

I don't think it's even possible to side with Bosh on this one.

all i can say is that's fine. We see where his priorites lie (not that we didn't know before - but now it's so blatant and obvious) and it's actually a relief not to have him here. Bosh is an entertainer first, basketball player second.
