Chris Bosh Says Lakers Have The Strongest Team On Paper

Chris Bosh appeared on FS1’s First Things First, and talked about the Los Angeles Lakers, LeBron James and their current roster. Bosh hasn’t played in the NBA since 2016.

“On paper, the Lakers have the strongest team,” he said. “It’s not difficult playing with LeBron. You have to change your game. There are lot of dynamics that you have to get used to playing with him. But it’s better than not playing with him. He’s a great player.”

Bosh remembers his first game against LeBron. The Lakers superstar was playing with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

“A few weeks ago, I was actually just watching old tape of that 2001 ABCD game,” Bosh said.

“He did it all, and he did it all easy. That’s one of the things that sticks out to me, playing it back these years later. It was like the pressure we all felt….. he somehow didn’t feel it. He was just this whole other shade of cool. And then the other thing that sticks out to me, it’s maybe a little more obvious: dude’s game. He already had such a complete game. And I mean — we’re in a gym full of somebodies: athletes, shooters, dunkers. Future college stars. Future PROS. But only one guy in that gym that day had the complete package already. And looking back on it?? That was the camp that really put him on the national map.

“By the end of the game, I asked my coach — well, I asked him the only question there was. ‘Yo….. Coach….. who is this guy?’ And he just shook his head. Looked at me almost like his heart was breaking. Like he was about to sit me down and break the news that Santa wasn’t real.

“’That,’ he said. ‘Is LeBron James.’”

Well, you can’t just forget someone whose game is so sharp and awesome.

LeBron, Anthony Davis and their teammates would do anything to make the playoffs this season. They won’t give up without a fight, and hopefully, everyone will stay healthy. There’s still enough time, and LA is positive about this season and their roster.
