The first time in March was more of an arguement than just a way of showing his true feelings. He backed out saying he has to swallow his ego later on in the playoffs during press conferences though. This was all expressed to the media though.
The game is different. He just wasn't getting the ball. Two other star players were very capable of getting it to him.
Well I didn't hear the interview, so my opinion is based on shit, take it with a grain of salt please...
A guy with his talent, against a team with only one guy capable of guarding him (Tyson) who got routine foul trouble should not simply wave his hand in the post. And the dude stayed in the high post almost exclusively.
When Pau Gasol didn't DEMAND the ball, he got rocked by the media, when KG didn't set up down low on the block and DEMAND the ball, he got killed by the media. Chris Bosh should be held to the same standard. Just because he plays with 2 guys who are very very good doesn't give him a pass.
