The value of Chris Bosh to the Miami Heat has become increasingly appreciated as their run together has evolved.
“He’s at a very, very comfortable level right now with whatever role — whether it’s the five or the four — and he’s shooting the ball extremely well,” LeBron James said. “He’s very comfortable in being the point man in a lot of our offenses and our offense kind of goes through him.”
Erik Spoelstra said Monday that “more experience” in the Heat’s system has allowed Bosh to play more instinctually.
“I think that’s what everyone is seeing right now,” Spoelstra said. “He’s able to do what he’s done so well for us in the past, which is facilitate and allow things to work, but also be aggressive and make teams have to guard him.”
Spoelstra has called Bosh the most important player on the Heat since 2011.
“His game has evolved in so many different areas,” Spoelstra said. “Arguably, he has to evolve in more areas than any other player, and that’s on both sides of the floor. But we’ve put him on every spot on the court. For a center, that’s dynamic.”
