If you thought Chris Bosh wasn't going to celebrate a pretty convincing victory over a conference rival on a night he received his second straight NBA championship ring by sneaking up on his teammates and mean-mugging during their post-game interviews, then you, my friend, need to take Paul F. Tompkins' advice and go back to thinking school.
The Miami Heat center earned recognition as the NBA's pre-eminent post-game interview creeper last season, spawning many imitators but few real top-flight challengers. And while his maiden videobomb voyage of the 2013-14 season wasn't especially flamboyant, it did serve notice that Bosh won't take kindly to just any geek off the street coming for his crown. You gotta be handy with your Blue Steel, if you know what I mean. Earn your keep.
Emulators, mount up:
Sixteen points on 6 for 11 shooting, six rebounds and three blocks in 31 1/2 minutes, plus consecutive creep-ups on LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. Pretty efficient night, Mr. Bosh. No wonder Erik Spoelstra's been singing your praises so much.
