Good afternoon, everybody.
I hope everybody is doing well.
Um, I'm doing great.
Just I got rid of the facial hair.
It's so I'm back to looking normal here on this channel.
The mustache era is over, but we're today.
We're sitting down or reacting to a little bit of Chris Bosh news.
Um, you know, a guy that I think over time has not necessarily gotten the appreciation that he deserves.
Um, just because of the situations that he's been, you know, he played for this Toronto team, a team that really didn't go much of anywhere, Um, and was one of the premier Post scores, a guy that you know, was very different from the version that we got in Miami.
And, of course, that's what this is about.
We're talking about Game six of the 2013 finals, a game that I remember watching my dad.
I I actually I remember.
I was This is what, like I was how many years? Six years ago.
So I was 1920 20 years old.
I was in school at that point.
Um, and I remember watching this whole Siri's I was pulling for the spurs always you know, like I like that, that Ah, you know, I just like Tim Duncan.
Like many people, I like the way they play.
So I remember watching the Siri's.
It was a great, great that I remember watching this, actually about to.
I think it was two summers ago.
I went back and re watch the Siri's.
It's just a great back and forth Siri's, you know, really up there in the last 10 years with the the 2016 finals, you know, a couple of other finals like that.
This is just a really great back and forth Siri's and, you know, the heat.
They were on their last legs in this in this Ah, in this Game six, they were down.
I don't remember what the specific margin was, but LeBron fueled them with a late game run.
And then in that in and then as that, that game was progressing.
Um, you know, he missed, I think a couple of threes.
It might have been two threes in a row, I believe from what I remembering from this, and it kind of seemed like they were done.
One of those threes, of course, goes off the rim and it bounces in the hands of Chris Bosh, who kicks it out.
Ball goes to Ray Allen.
You guys know the rest.
I like this because I think that you know, this, this quote that I really, really enjoy for Chris Bosh, he says.
I still remember sitting in the huddle at the end of the game.
Everyone was quiet.
1000 yard stares.
The trophy was being wheeled out.
They started putting up ropes around the court.
Even some of our fans headed for the exits because the Spurs were up by five with 28 seconds left.
Uh, Dwayne Wade's knee was hurt.
We were a few miss shots away from losing it all.
I remember thinking, Holy ****. Oh, no.
Um, yeah, it was funny because, like you, I The other thing you have to remember with this is how much people, as much as people didn't like the the Miami team itself.
People just it was endless.
I mean, this was back when, like, Facebook was really, really live like MBA means and stuff like that.
So, you know, in a lot of the commentary would happen in like the ESPN.
They had like a chat back in the day where you could kind of go in and hash it out about these games that were going on live this.
These Miami Heat fans were really, really hated in a way because people just felt like they were banned.
Wagoner's to see them walk out with, you know, a foreseeable amount of time left over to come back.
It's just a really emotional moment.
A lot of things happen.
But the one thing I can say and out of solace from all of this is that Chris Bosch got his day.
Um, you know in that in that serious And I think the one after that, actually the one that the Spurs one in five there were games where he would have, you know there were.
I mean, there were a couple games where he just didn't have any points, you know, he'd have seven points.
We saw this later with the LeBron seeing with Kevin luck. Kevin love.
I mean, you know, say what you want about how his career has progressed since playing for that championship Cavaliers team, but he would have games where he was basically completely invisible.
Um, you know Chris and and I think that's just part of being 1/3 banana on a LeBron James team.
So I like that he got his do with this.
Chris Bosh is one of those guys.
I mean, he was so ahead of his time.
He again went from a post player in Toronto, became this stretch almost like a three and D guy in a way, and completely changed the game as we know it, you know, he would have been perfect in the modern day league, which I think is the sad part of all of this.
I mean, there's no way that you could get him on that specific Miami team right now.
That one with Jimmy Butler, and ****, But it would be fun to see him.
I mean, I'm not always super confident, like the Twin Towers alignment, but that's somewhere where I think, because of how Bam can switch around and guard so many different guys.
Ah, that would have been a very nice little thing going on.
But, um, unfortunately, we didn't get that, you know, Chris Bosh.
His career was cut short like blood clots, and I'm happy that we have at least one moment for him where he can get his do.
It's something that we can go back on.
Ah, you know, as much as people want to sit there and talk about the Ray Allen shot, I mean, if you watch Chris Bosh is rebound.
It's a very politic performance.
You know? He spends, he grabs it and all in one motion.
He recognizes that Ray Allen's probably already gonna be there, because that's what Ray Allen does.
He you know, he just finds the space he needs to and is always moving to get open shots.
So yeah, man, I mean, I'm it's I love hearing from Chris Bosh is always, always, always, always a charming interview.
Um, you know, it just really well spoken guy someone that I think people understand over more and more time.
And, um, just a really fun player and probably my favorite player.
Yeah, of of that Miami Heat seemed So that's all I got today.
Um, go ahead and fall Mother Channel at Matt Brooks, M B A.
And I'll see you guys accept peace
