    Chris Bosh, Third Wheel, Becomes Badass Main Man Overnight

    A sudden revival in reputation for the NBA player who looks most like a dinosaur.

    Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra has continually referred to Chris Bosh as the "most important player" on the team. Many other people have referred to Chris Bosh as a dork because he looks like a dinosaur, makes weird faces, and voluntarily went from being the top dog on the Raptors to the third viola on the Heat. But in Game 6 of the NBA Finals, he was no third viola. In Game 6 Chris Bosh was the undisputed, number-one viola champion.

    With the final seconds ticking away in regulation and his team down three, Bosh, surrounded by Spurs players, grabbed a clutch rebound and dished the ball out to Ray Allen for the game-tying trey.

    Only to follow that up with a monster block on Tony Parker in the final minute of overtime.

    Which was almost as big as his block on Danny Green to end the game and seal the victory for the Heat.

    This was not only one of the most important plays of the series, it backed up the seemingly ill-advised smack talk he had laid down before the game.

    And after word spread that Heat fans left the game early on Tuesday, Bosh publicly called them out:

    "For all those guys who left, make sure they don't come to Game 7... We only want the guys who are going to stay in the building for the whole game. You never give up. People gave up on us and they can stay where they are and watch the game at home."

    Okay, who is this guy and what have you done to the Chris Bosh we all know and love to make fun of for being a weenie?
