Chris Bosh does not have a reputation as a tough guy -- in fact, Kevin Durant recently called him a "fake tough guy." His dramatic flop tonight against the Chicago Bulls won't change anybody's mind on his toughness. After Carlos Boozer's elbow didn't appear to do anything more than barely graze Bosh's face (if even that), the Miami Heat forward hit the deck hard, alternating between holding his nose and the back of his head:
The back of his head! The jolt of Boozer's non-elbow was so severe that Bosh was injured in parts of his skull where Boozer didn't even almost hit him. Bosh didn't even land on his head. Why did he hold his head?
He lingered in the paint, stood up dazed and bleary, and then immediately scored an and-one at the other end of the floor, continuing to sell his affliction by touching his shattered nose while at the free throw line. Bulls fans booed their hearts out, almost knocking Bosh right back over.
