Remember when LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh were supposed to be something of an unstoppable three-headed monster? Back when they jumped onto stages with completely unnecessary pyrotechnic displays going off behind them, did news conferences together and actually acknowledged each others’ existences?
Those were simpler times.
Fast forward to now. Bosh -- in between tearful outbursts, of course -- is forced to do his news conferences in isolation, Wade and James are now the new age Batman and Alfred, and the only fireworks that Heat fans will see any time soon will come this Monday during 4th of July celebrations.
There is no greater example of how far the Heatles have fallen than Bosh’s recent four-day Las Vegas bachelor party, dubbed the “Hangover 3” for reasons unknown to anyone. I’d like to think it’s because the guy standing to Bosh’s right in this photo is some sort of international criminal, but that probably isn't it:
Dignitaries like Jarrett Jack and Pops Mensah-Bonsu were in attendance, and entertainment included fun at a shooting range, a dinner at N9NE Steakhouse, and attending Criss Angel’s show, “Believe.” As one of his tricks, Angel -- a man who once levitated over the Luxor Hotel -- tried to restore some pride and dignity to Bosh’s name – no luck, though.
Anyway, best wishes to Bosh and his bride. Unlike the rest of the Heat, Bosh seems at least somewhat bearable in between his incessant tongue wagging and completely unnecessary bellows after blocking shots.
Congratulations on being the only Heat player to get a ring this year, Chris.
