Check the newsstand this week. Two great tastes that taste like a championship.
Chris Bosh got milk. Miami got flavor.
If you don’t know the Heat’s brilliant power forward, he is all about the Art. We are cooking up all kinds of outrageous ways to optimize this most exciting part of the most talented team in sports history. Chris Bosh is not afraid to gush about what is about to happen. In a recent Sports Illustrated video interview he told the straight-up truth:
“We have the perfect balance. Dwyane is the perfect scorer. Lebron is the perfect all-around player. I’m the perfect low post player. Together we can make this a really really good team.”
Thanks to XeroO for the intense teeth. He is no longer a Raptor, but he is about to bite off the biggest hunk of history that the NBA has ever seen. Chris Bosh is an inspiration.
I was just listening to Stan Van Gundy on The Dan LeBatard Show on 790 Radio here in Miami. He confirmed what I have been saying: The Miami Heat roster is the best in the history of the NBA.
Stan was comparing us to the Chicago Bulls in their glory days. He said this.
“Most people would still take Michael over Lebron, but Wade is much better than Pippen. Bosh is way ahead of Kukoc. Mike Miller is a better shooter than Paxson or BJ Armstrong. The Heat roster is the best that the NBA has ever seen.”
(Editors note: The above quote was slightly off, but the basics are correct.)
“If I look at what the Bulls did winning 72 games and I look at the Heat roster, I am going to tell you that the Heat roster is better than any roster that Michael Jordan played with with the Bulls. I don’t think that people predicting them breaking the win total and being in the 70s and the whole thing, I don’t think those are expectations that are out of line based on their roster. Most people would still take Jordan over Lebron. Dwyane Wade is certainly, in my opinion anyway, as good as he was, is better than Scottie Pippen. Chris Bosh is better than Toni Kukoc. Mike Miller is every bit as good a shooter as (John) Paxson or (Steve) Kerr or anybody they put there. Plus, he’s 6′8″. If you start going down the list, I don’t think there is any question that the roster the Heat have is as talented a roster if not more so as any roster there has ever been in the NBA.”
Something unbelievable just happened here in Miami. Pat Riley was able to sign Bosh and LeBron to play alongside DWade.
This is like choosing the three best starters, two best closers, and four best hitters to build a baseball team.
This is like picking any 14 players in the world to play football in your city.
This is like a video game, but it is happening in real life. Here. Where I live.
This is a surreal paradise for someone who has been going to Heat games for 22 years since the first night they played, with Rony Seikaly in the Miami Arena.
This is unbelievable.
