There's a long-standing joke that Chris Bosh was the perfect face of the Toronto Raptors franchise during his time in the Great White North because he so closely resembles an actual velociraptor.
But until now, no one had taken the steps to analyze how Bosh the Actual Dinosaur would perform on the court.
Observe below, this YouTube simulation that offers a decent guess at how Bosh would look in the Heat lineup if he actually took on the form of a raptor. Suffice it to say, having an 8-foot flesh-eating beast on your side isn't the worst thing in the world:
So, yeah, that's awesome, but a couple thoughts: A) Why are Dwyane Wade and Kevin Durant's heads so big in the video? B) Why does Bosh becoming an actual dinosaur mean his jumper is so silky again? And C) Why is everyone not running away BECAUSE THERE'S A DINOSAUR ON THE COURT?!?
This commenter also makes a fair point:
Now, I hate to be a wet blanket, but it is at this point that I also feel obligated to point out that an actual velociraptor was roughly the size of your dog and probably wouldn't pose much of a threat in a 1-on-1 situation, except for maybe popping the ball with its claws. He'd probably be behind Greg Oden on Miami's depth chart.
But I hate to spoil the fun, so let's just watch some Jurassic Park and pretend I never said anything:
BEST OF MAXIM

Granted, about the only reason why somebody would make a NBA 2K13 simulation featuring Miami Heat star Chris Bosh transformed into an 8-foot-tall, basketball-playing Raptor stems from the fact that Bosh spent his first seven NBA seasons as a member of the Toronto Raptors organization. Other than that, it’s simply awesome and no further reasoning […]The post Chris Bosh transformed...
We knew it! Chris Bosh is in fact a velociraptor from the Dinosaur Age. All we needed was a simulation of NBA 2K13 for proof.
The newest member of the Miami Heat said doctors told him to just go and lead a normal life following his most recent surgery in 2012.
Lebron James wanted to hook his alma mater, St. Vincent-St. Mary's, up with a slick new set of football uniforms, and The Swoosh made it happen.
As the Ringo Starr of Miami’s Big Three, Chris Bosh gets a lot of hate thrown his way, and often rightfully so. But, what if dinosaur doppelganger Bosh actually was a real life, 8-foot raptor? After watching this NBA 2K13 simulation by YouTuber MkEliteWorksX, I don’t think we’d be making fun of him quite as much.
