When you win an NBA Championship confetti falls. And while normally it is an incident free event, sometimes the serious choking hazard associated with confetti rears its ugly head.
After helping the Miami Heat beat the San Antonio Spurs with his zero points. Chris Bosh joined his teammates on stage to hold the trophy and take in the confetti. While is guard was down is when the confetti attacked.
It drifted down and into his mouth. Chris Bosh was clearly, and obviously concerned at the discomfort caused from tissue paper being in his mouth. As he panics and tries to get the paper out of his mouth he struggles. As he wrestles with the paper his panic intensifies until he finally removes the confetti and can relax peacefully.
That was a close call.

Maybe it’s the Championship Gods repaying him for his tacky celebration last year when he poured champagne on himself.
