Found September 22, 2012 on Fox Sports Arizona:
Chris Bosh recently bestowed his official blessing upon anyone (including emissaries from his own team) referring to him -- at least from time to time -- as an NBA center. It was quite a revelation.

Perhaps he's just showing support for his father's new look squad, or maybe he's being sincere, but Austin Rivers -- son of Celtics head coach Doc Rivers -- thinks Boston is better without Ray Allen in the mix.
