    Default Bosh: "I'm Going To Play With People's Emotions"

    Hmmm .... this might add alot of fuel to the already out of control fire.

    "If you think about how many times somebody asks you, 'How are you,' that's how many times I was asked, 'Where you going?" said Bosh, who was in Manhattan Wednesday to unveil his Got Milk! advertisement. "So it's like, well, in my case, I'm going to have fun with it. I'm going to play with people's emotions. I'm going to be high and low."

    The admission – long suspected of the Heat triumvirate (Bosh, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade) – would help explain the varying reports about Bosh's destination during the long free agency process. Several had him going to Chicago and Cleveland, and former Nets president Rod Thorn said he felt his team was in the running the evening before Bosh and Wade announced their intentions together on ESPN.

    Turns out, Bosh was sending out mixed messages for kicks – tweeting every step of the way.

    "I wouldn't call it a game because it's serious, but, I mean, it's entertainment at the end of the day. It's the truth," Bosh said. "We're entertaining and everything but at the same time I'm just getting my feelings out there.

    "It's entertaining to see people react to your real emotions because if it wasn't fun I wouldn't do it."

    Man, here i was thinking Bosh is actually a class act...Now I just see him as a lanky ass douche bag who is riding the coat tails of two superstars and claiming he is a superstar for leading a team twice in 7 years to 1st rd postseason early exits. This guy needs to stop and check his ego, he has no right in "entertaining" us off the basketball court. Obviously he was going to be asked that question and if he answered it the damn questions would have stopped.

    C'mon dude. Seriously? Bosh has had more women in his bedroom than you have walked past in your life. Face it, Cleveland is not a premiere hot spot for anyone. I've never heard someone say, "Hey I'm going to Cleveland!" Even Howard the Duck loathed the place. I really don't blame him. Cleveland stinks. It is the only place I know of where the people actually figured out how to set a lake on fire. In fact, the state of Ohio sucks. The biggest celebrity to come out that state is Charles Manson. The Bengals are all about racking up arrest warrants instead of wins. Pete Rose was the biggest sports figure ever and you see where he is. Even he had to leave Ohio for a while because he didn't like the joint. Not to mention that had it not been for Ohio, Bush would have never got a second term to completely screw things up.
    rofl this is the funniest thing i've ever heard.

    Priest: You thought Bosh was a class act? What season was that? This report on his tweeting like a little bitch during the first week of free agency is old news. Then he made those disrespectful and utterly classless comments about the city. In the latest, he slams the city and organization when he stated that he could never get such a lucrative endorsement deal as the Milk campaign if he had stayed in Toronto. Yaa what a class act Bosh is...

    With all this sheet he is laying on, it makes wonder how could someone like this be a effective team leader.

    lol, hilarious video, LBF. I'm actually disappointed in Bosh's attitude too. Seriously, taking advantage of the attention he's getting is one thing; but, he's going overboard in some aspects.

    I wish I read this before voting on the poll

    It's amazing how sport stars who are getting paid so much money to do something so many people would love to do can be so disrespectful and arrogant towards the people who effectively pay their salary. That being said, calling Bosh Rupaul and Christina is just lame and shows you have maturity of Bosh himself (actually, that's too harsh)

    I never though I would say this, but if Boston played Miami, I want Boston to win. KG and Pierce are arrogant dicks, but at least they're not massively egotistical and desperate for attention.

    The reason most basketball players (most pro athletes) speak in cliche terms or in monosyllables is because at the core they have a very real sense that they are arent very competent at public speaking or making comment on off court matters. They dont want to put their foot in their gob. While it makes for pretty dry reading/watching I can understand the good sense it makes from their point of view. They dont want to have to deal with the blowback.

    And now we have Mr. Bosh. He seems to be "finally" liberated it seems to be just the opposite. He believes he is some media savvy savant with a unique and comedic sense on how to manipulate people (mostly like us) who put probably more time into following their team than is logically justified. I think he is just another immature, living in a cocoon who while not displaying the more crass traits of an Agent Zero or an Isiah Rider etc. does in fact possess the same hubris of self importance which gives him that false sense of entititlement which also results in not realizing what he is doing is in fact not a very nice thing to do.

    makes sense. i'd almost blame it on the lack of education with the vast majority of nba players. most of them go to college for the facade (or, as it is now, because of the mandatory age requirement in the NBA), havent had to actually pick up a book since grade 7/8, and surround themselves with other more "business savvy" friends to handle the things they're too stupid to do themselves (like the "should i or shouldn't i have a one hour special on espn to spit in my fans faces?" decision).

    we all hate VC for his whole graduation BS.... but at least that dude valued his education to a level that he finished it, and took pride in it. i'm pretty sure the only times bosh has been back to georgia tech was to use their gym, or to hit on college chicks that will sleep with him because of his celebrity status because he knows his looks will get him nowhere.

    not to knock them.... but we've all seen amir/sonny/derozan's twitter comments... love the guys, but god damn they make the grammar police angry
