In the mind of Kevin Durant it would appear that the handle “The Rupaul of the NBA” still applies when it comes to describing Chris Bosh and his physical (or lack there of) play.
I was talking to my teammate and [Bosh] decided he wanted to put his two cents into it. I am quiet guy, laid back guy, but I’m not going to let nobody talk trash to me. He’s on a good team now so he thinks he can talk a little bit. There are a lot of fake tough guys in this league and he’s one of them.
I’ve long been a fan of Kevin Durant’s game on and off the court but with these words my appreciation for him has skyrocketed. It wasn’t that long ago that Shaquille O’Neal dubbed Chris Bosh “The Rupaul Of Big Men” for his lack of toughness on defence during his time with the Toronto Raptors. I’m not sure what has changed with his relocation to Miami but Bosh surely can’t consider himself a tough guy in the NBA. So I applaud Durant’s “fake tough guy” claim.
Anytime Chris Bosh wants to think that he’s the next coming of Charles Oakley he should immediately flash himself back to the moment when Antawn Jamison’s elbow connected with his beak. That elbow should remind Bosh to stay 18 feet away from the net and just hand the ball off to D Wade and Lebron.
