View Full Version : Both Wade and Bosh say Boston is tougher test in the East

Joining WQAM in Miami, Chris Bosh offered a retrospective on the season as well as a look forward to the playoffs. At the tail end of the interview, he was asked about the road ahead and whether the Boston Celtics, who the Heat just pummeled on Sunday, would be a tougher test over Chicago, a team the Heat have yet to beat this season in three tries. Keep in mind, Bosh has shot 1-for-18 against Chicago, got injured in Chicago, and just plain underperformed against the No. 1 seed this season.

His answer?

From SportsRadioInterviews.com:

I’m going to go with the Celtics right now because of their experience and where they’ve been. The Bulls, they’re very talented obviously. They earned, and rightfully so, the No. 1 spot in the East. But you know, the Celtics you really never know with them. Last year everybody wrote them off, they were the No. 4 seed and they came within a few minutes of winning an NBA title. So they have guys that have been there many, many times before and they bring a lot of experience.

Who worries you the most? I would imagine it being the Boston Celtics? Am I correct in saying that?

“Yeah the Boston Celtics. No question about it. That’s the team we have to get over the hump on. It’s the team you know that’s had our number. It has beaten whether it’s a close game or if it’s a blowout or whatever. We have to get over the hump. I got knocked out of the playoffs you now last year in Miami versus them. LeBron got knocked out the last two years [by the Boston Celtics as a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers]. You know so it’s building up to a great finish. It’s just about when it’s going to happen. I think we continue to just get better and get into our mind when we play them that we just as good as a team as them. It’s going to come down to the end of games. We have to execute. We have to do the little things to win the game and eventually you know we’ll get over the hump.”


Wade said this on the Stephen A. Smith show

Of course it is the team they worry about because the C's beat both Lebron and Wade last year and are the proven commodity.

they are obvoiusly a good team but i dont think they have a 2nd gear needed for the playoffs. they have been going at it at their best the entire year. the heat havent even done close to that. they have played defense like 1/3 of the season. the celtics are scarier because no one has any idea how much they are just waiting for the playoffs or if they are really as bad without perkins as they have shown.

I am afraid of both Chicago and Boston. Although I doubt we would beat Chicago in 5 games. They are a great team and for us to win a series against them I believe it would go 7 games.

Chicago, on the other hand, has been playing full speed the entire season. They haven't been hiding much at all. They're butt naked. Like the OP said, they have no second gear. What you see is what you get.

I love how this thread was started with the direct intention of trying to start a fight with Bulls fans (clear by the OP's post). Heat fans better pray they don't falter in any round. Even if the Heat make the finals over BOS and CHI but lose in the finals, they fail.

they havent done it so they could shock people later. they have done it because it is impossible to do that every game in the regular season when you can come to the arena on most nights when they are playing bad teams and just outscore them and win easily.
this isnt anything surprising to anyone. ask most experts who have watched the heat around the league, the heat havent come close to playing the type of defense they are capable of every game. they play half *** because they are just that good offensively.
look at the way they played on sunday vs the celtics which is what they play like in most big games and when they are at their best defensively.

get ready for the juggernaut in the playoffs. hell it might not even happen in the first round because they are just that much better than the 6ers, but keep thinking that.

how is that worse at all?

he is comparing a declining, completely injury riddled team's chances against another average team in that year, while the other comparison is showing that you dont need to beat the elite teams in the regular season if you win the championship.

so in conclusion,

his comparison is comparing 2 completely different teams in a series 4 years ago, while that comparison has to do with exactly what the heat went through this year that is actually relevent to winning a championship. good try though.

Does any team play their best D every game?

Bulls, Celtics, Magic, they all have bad defensive games. That's not "holding back", that's ebb and flow of a season. Now that it's the playoffs, do you believe they're going to play their best D every single game? If you do, I'm sorry you'll be disappointed.

Bottom line is that most Bulls fans need to understand that Drose is really about the 6th most deserving MVP, but will win based on team and MJ is still worthy of having in a sig. Heat fans need to realize that the Heat of right now have done absolutely nothing so far and that the Mavs series was a gift from Stern, so neither of you have done anything in the recent, so talk siht after one of you guys at least makes the conference finals.

that being said i cannot wait for the playoffs to start so the best team in the NBA take the floor and prove all the doubters wrong. GO BULLS!

p.s I said in the beginning of the year that the overall team to beat in the NBA is the Lakers and out east it is the Celtics that does not change until one or both are knocked out of the playoffs.

I love it! Heat fans are showing that they really are scared of the Bulls. I didn't think they'd freak out this bad after their three losses to the Bulls this year. Bosh and Wade's quotes both show that they want to ignore the Bulls. Or else they are covering their ***** in case they lose to the Celtics in the second round, which I think is a very good possibility. But I guess Wade and Bosh do too.

In a 7 game series you game plan and make adjustments. A one star team like the Bulls usually don't go far.

OH Heat Fans.

Right why be scared of Chicago the team that swept you in the Regular season

but I know Heat regular season dont matter Right?

Or your stellar team that has this mythical second gear that they can go to any time but they did not turn it on during your losing skid when your team was crying in the locker room.

and not to mention that you guys dont have a single person on your team that can cover Derrick Rose

Wade tried Fail

Lebron tried Fail

who is next Bosh?

and dont you remember two years ago when we took a Boston team to probably the best playoff series of all time but we dont have playoff experience or a mythical second gear i got it how about this we got a 15th gear ours is higher

If you count that as a sweep then good luck, we are a new team figuring out how to close games, we're a better closer than what you faced.

You mean Rose driving and setting up Deng for a wide open 3 because previously Rose was getting miraculous layins to fall (like always).

I still can't help but :laugh2: at how pathetic the Heat are for claiming the refs cost them the game because their 4th 'preseason star' Mike Miller shoved Deng away from getting the board on his FT.


I have no doubt that the Heat would hit a game-winning shot late in a 7 game series, but you're crazy or blind if you think the Bulls won't do the same.

You won all three not because you had a better team but because the ball bounced your way in all 3 games. Have you forgotten the bogus foul Deng got? Those calls are rare in the play-offs, plus have you forgotten the rebound that bounced Korver's way? Keep fooling yourself on 3 wins against us, 3 games you won with a total of 7 points.

So I assume you're predicting the Bulls to beat the Magic in 5 or 6?


I think playing the Heat reignites the intensity level. If I'm the Heat, I sure want to win the first game of a Bulls-Heat series to prove to themselves that they can beat the Bulls. Going down 1-0 or 2-0 (both games being in Chicago, it's possible) would really hurt.

In all reality, there getting old. They are very beatable. And that's a fact. One year to the next can be so much of a difference that it's impossible to say that things will be like the previous one. Look at my Knicks, where were they this time of year last season??

Is it because of some magical ability to "turn it on" in the playoffs? No. They were just a better team than their opposition up until the Lakers; very, very simple.

What's even more ludicrous is this "Bulls are hopeless because they have no second gear, all they have is what you've already seen" garbage. What you've all already seen, is a team that won more games in the NBA this year than any other. What part of that isn't to be feared? They beat everybody. There is not a single team in the NBA the Bulls didn't get past this season. They swept the Heat, and in the latter matches beat the clearly tired Celtics handily.

The Mavs also beat every team and had the best record before they lost in round 1, same as the Cavs losing in round 2 last year. The regular season games does not say much about who will win the championship.....it's usually a team ranked top 4 in a conference. No doubt the Bulls was a focused team during the regular season but during the play-offs everybody is focused. Teams run their best plays, they don't experiment like in the regular season. Bulls fans need not act like we were all born yesterday, their team is very vulnerable and can easily be defended.

The Bulls #1 defense will just be easy to throw aside.

I was really hoping to see some maturity in here, but that doesn't seem to be case, so I'm closing this before it gets out of hand.
