Chris Bosh was supposed to be one of the Big 3 in Miami. Bosh, himself, even went as far as to say he should be in the Hall of Fame back in January. That's all great and all. I mean, why not? Why shouldn't a top-tier athlete have that much much confidence in their game? They're supposed to be confident, right? Well, Bosh's confidence is fine, but his game needs some improvement, especially in the playoffs.Over the last three games, Bosh has scored 7, 7 and 5 points. One game, the Heat lost, the next, they won, then lost. Usually, when you look at a star player, and see a line like that, you think they might have run into foul trouble or an injury. In game 5, Bosh scored 7, pulled in only five rebounds, all defensive, and didn't even attempt a free throw shot. All that with only two fouls. So that certainly wasn't the problem.Game 6, a loss, was actually worse. Bosh scored only five points and had only four rebounds. Again, he only recorded two personal fouls.Bosh has to be more aggressive if Miami is going to overcome their point differential in the paint. The Heat need an interior presence, a bruiser than can get in there, throw some bodies around, and enjoy doing it. And I'm not talking Chris Andersen-type of throwing around bodies, OK? But in order to do that, in order to pay someone what they're worth, it's going to be even harder. I explained some time ago that Bosh's contract simply makes him un-tradeable. Especially considering he's averaging two points less per game now than he did two seasons ago.Even if Miami does win another championship, in two or three years, Miami will be paying part of Bosh's salary when he's playing on another team, or someone will be dumb enough to take it all.
