Chris Bosh, as we know, is the big man of Miami's "big three." We know that Dwyane Wade and LeBron James get inspiration from one Michael Jordan. But Bosh, being a 6'10" power forward/center, can't exactly emulate his game from Jordan. So where does he draw inspiration from?
If his team makes it to the Finals, he would be going against that inspiration. That would be San Antonio Spurs' big man Tim Duncan. Check out Joseph Goodman's story from the Miami Herald.
INDIANAPOLIS -- Chris Bosh had Tim Duncan posters. That pretty much sums up how long the Spurs have been the gold standard of consistency in the NBA.
The Heat still has plenty of work to do if it wants to reach the NBA Finals, but Tuesday its players paid homage to the team that would be its opponent in the next round. The Spurs swept the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday night in stunning fashion to win the Western Conference finals and earn 10 days of rest before The Finals.
“I had favorite players, and he was one of them,” Bosh said of Duncan, the Spurs’ center. “He was in SLAM [Magazine] a lot. SLAM was like the Bible, so I took out the pages and put them on my wall. That was a little while ago. That was another lifetime.”
Duncan has been in the league since Bosh was 13; that's how long Duncan has played in the NBA. Now if the Heat make it past Indiana, Bosh isn't going to be there to admire Duncan's game; he's going to try to help his team stop Duncan and his Spurs.
Still, that's high praise coming from one of the best big men in the league today. Duncan has lasted a long time and has been one of the top big men the entire time he's been there. And that should be inspiration to Bosh and the rest of the bigs in the league. Who has done it well as long as Duncan has? Very, very few people in the league's history.
Bosh has done quite well so far in his nine years in the league and, because of his drive and Duncan's inspiration, he could very well be one of those few people that will have a long and consistently good NBA career.
Perhaps Bosh's drive will also inspire Duncan to be even better so he can get that fifth championship ring.
BEST OF MAXIM
Tim Duncan and his wife of nearly 12 years are getting a divorce, and it seems like the San Antonio Spurs star had concerns that Amy was cheating on him. According to San Antonio Express-News columnist Buck Harvey, Duncan had concerns about his wife last fall and hired a private investigator to follow her. Harvey [...]
Who gets the dogs?
Hovering around the periphery of the Spurs' run for the last couple of weeks has been the tabloids working the semi-secret personal life of Hall of Fame power forward and franchise cornerstone Tim Duncan, and his impending divorce from his wife of 12 years. There's been talk about how the suit is being delayed by the Spurs' long playoff run, how Timmy...
Bosh really seems like a nice guy, who just get caught making the funniest faces.
Thanks to dieting and getting leaner last summer, San Antonio Spurs legend Tim Duncan is in the midst of having his best season on the hardwood since the 2009-2010 campaign. Shedding roughly 30 pounds to fall to 230, the two-time MVP averaged 17.8 points, 9.9 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 2.7 blocks playing only 30 minutes per game. More importantly, the 6-foot-11 Duncan led San Antonio...
As Indiana’s Paul George continues his tear against Miami Heat in the 2013 Eastern Conference Finals, he decided to Heat forward Chris Bosh on a poster with the below slam.
It happened in the first quarter of game six and watch as George rises to the basket for the one handed hammer slam dunk:

LeBron James wasn’t the only Heat that suffered a mild ankle sprain during the third quarter of Heat’s Game 4 loss to the Indiana Pacers, his pet T-Rex, was also a victim of the excessive stretching of the ankle muscles. But unlike LeBron, who walked it off in a matter of seconds (resembling the regenerative skills of a cyborg), Bosh took a little...
Paul George served up a facial on Chris Bosh with a nasty transition slam in the first quarter of Game 6 on Saturday:
Tweet Remember when Indiana Pacers dunked on Chris Anderson in game two of the eastern conference finals? Well, Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh suffered the same fate in game six Saturday: George is quickly establishing himself as one of the better all around players in NBA. -ALR
In an era of flashiness, endorsements, and who makes it the most on highlight reels, the San Antonio Spurs and Tim Duncan often get overlooked. Time after time, the Spurs are right in the thick of things in the race for the NBA title season after season thanks in large part to Duncan and this season is no different.
The Spurs and Duncan are back in the NBA Finals for a fifth...
During the NBA Finals, John Karalis of Red's Army will be contributing to Project Spurs during the San Antonio Spurs' chase for title number five. Here is John's first post on Tim Duncan's place among the best-of-the-best in league history.
A few things happen as an aging superstar edges closer to championship.
There’s a requisite level...
I love how the refs gave Indy ALL the calls - Heat 19 free throws, Pacers 18 free throws. The refs pretty much let them play and let a lot go on both ends. But the Heat are so used to lopsided officiating in their favor, they just can't handle when the officiating is somewhat even. And Celtics fans have to feel some measure of vindication when they read how much Heat...
LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh are supposed to be the best “Big 3” in the NBA, and for the most part of the regular season, they were.
However, in the Eastern Conference Finals against the Indiana Pacers, two of the “Big 3” have completely disappeared.
When Miami’s stars come to play, the Heat are virtually unbeatable. But when they don’t, the Pacers are the...
At the end of the first half of Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals Saturday night the Miami Heat held a one-point lead, 40-39, over the Indiana Pacers.
Just like the other games in this series this one has been hard fought and full of stellar plays from both teams. Like this one where Indiana's Paul George posterizes Chris Bosh.
Not to be outdone, LeBron...
Paul George continues to make a name for himself during the playoffs. The Indiana Pacers forward threw down a sick dunk on Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh during the second quarter of Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals on Saturday in Indiana. Every bit as great as the dunk was TNT’s Marv Albert’s call, [...]
