Heat F Chris Bosh over being the No. 1 option


Before joining the Miami Heat, Chris Bosh was the Toronto Raptor’s number one option for their offense. With the Heat, Bosh is a role player while LeBron James is clearly the number one option for the team. Bosh isn’t upset about it though, and said he has let that desire go and matured.

“Maturity-wise, I’ve let (being the No. 1 option) go,” said Bosh, via Sam Amick of the USA Today. “I’ve let being the man go. I understand really in mainstream why and how people are infatuated with that area, but it’s difficult man.

“I’m over it. It’s just all about winning at the end of the day. It’s about being in the game. I mean everybody isn’t meant to take the last shot. Everybody isn’t going to be the MVP. It’s only for a very, very small percentage, for a small percentage of guys. I understand that, and I’m just lucky enough to be in this situation I am now, just competing at the highest level in the league. That’s good enough for me.”
