Few Heat players felt the pain of last year’s NBA Finals defeat like Chris Bosh.
A year after he collapsed on the way to the Heat locker room with tears in his eyes, Bosh did everything he could to make sure the story would end differently.
Bosh finished with 24 points on 9-of-14 shooting, collected seven rebounds and delivered two big blocks to help the Heat put away the Thunder by the end of the third quarter en route to its second NBA title.
This time, Bosh thoroughly enjoyed the team’s on-court celebration as he realized the championship goal he set out for when he left the Toronto Raptors to join LeBron James and Dwyane Wade in Miami.
