Chris Bosh can thank Kevin Garnett for a happy homecoming.
On Saturday, Garnett gave East coach Stan Van Gundy some subtle advice.
“He said, ‘Hey, play me the first time out each half. It’s Chris’ hometown, so give him a lot of minutes,” Van Gundy said. “So I was glad we were able to do that. I thought it was great.”
No, there’s no “Chris Bosh got robbed” headline today, even though it would’ve made sense to give the hometown boy some hardware. And I’m pretty sure they would’ve given it to Nowitzki before Bosh anyway since that’s just the how the NBA likes to roll – predictable. It was nice to see Bosh nail some clutch FTs, get a late And1 and make some Raptor fans proud. We’re all attention whores who like to see the media down south acknowledge our existence and last night they were forced to focus on Bosh without asking him what his free agency plans were.
