Chris Bosh made it clear on Saturday that his days of playing in the post are not as consistent as they once were.
"I don't bang anybody anymore," Bosh said. "It's a tired thing for me. It's not my strength and I understand that."
Bosh has gradually made the transition into a perimeter-oriented player since signing with the Heat in 2010. Bosh jokingly said the decision was easy once "I found out you could get one more point for shooting threes."
"Just playing at an elite level, you play better defenders," Bosh said. "It gets tiring. What they ask us to do, to blitz the screen and roll, every single one, close out and get back. I wasn't this same weight. I was already 20-30 pounds lighter than anybody else. All that stuff just takes my energy."
