Chris Bosh is attempting to make a full-time transition from power forward to center with non-traditional size for the position.
"Quite frankly, it was just different (then)," said Bosh. "You're 24 or 23 years old going up against dudes with hair on their chests. It's different with kids. They're going to football practice, and they got babies. I'm trying to play against these grown men and I still had Simulac on my breath."
With the exception of Dwight Howard and Andrew Bynum, most centers currently playing are basically power forwards.
Bosh said the move is "overanalyzed" because the evolution at center.
"The game was different back then," he said. "The game changes every now and then. At that point, it was all about girth. You have to be big, Anthony Mason and Charles Oakley and Patrick Ewing and Vlade Divac. It's different now. The game is a lot faster. If you're big, we're going to run right by you.
