Less than a full week into camp, Dwyane Wade can already tell Heat power forward Chris Bosh’s motivation is making him a different player. A player determined to have an impact, rather than a player determined just to fit in, which was the case for portions of last season.

“One thing about Chris, I thought, last year he was hesitant a lot,” Wade said. “When he got the ball on the pitch-back, he’d be hesitant if he should shoot it, should he back you in. Now, he knows what he wants to do.

“Already in training camp, he’s been a different player. He’s been very aggressive, a lot more confident than he was last year.”
