Less than a week since helping the Miami Heat to a second straight NBA Title, on Wednesday evening Chris Bosh joined Piers Morgan, sharing some insight into the pressures and challenges that face a team during the playoffs.
"What do you think it takes when you literally, ironically get the 'heat?'" asked the "Piers Morgan Live" host. "What does it take for you guys...to be a champion?"
"Oh boy. I think just think of the hardest thing you'll probably have to do, taking those challenges and actually beating them. You know, we faced a lot of adversity during the playoffs," said one-third of Miami's famed "Big Three." "Especially everybody saw in game six. I think that was kind of the tipping point of the whole thing."
After forcing overtime, and ultimately beating the San Antonio Spurs in the sixth game of the NBA Finals, Bosh revealed that it was notably challenging to accurately recollect what exactly had transpired with their season hanging in the balance:
"I walked past LeBron [James,] and we were trying to remember what sequence of the game happened, and how we were able to get to that last point," said Bosh, referring to a contest which saw Ray Allen bury a three-pointer in the waning seconds of the fourth quarter to force overtime. "We could not remember. It was a very blurry situation."
Miami went on to outscore San Antonio 8-5 in the extra period, thus tying the series at three, and forcing a winner-take-all seventh game, which the Heat won to capture a second straight championship.
