Chris Bosh Felt This Season Was A Grind

i

“I don’t think anybody really enjoyed this season like in years past. There was no, like, genuine joy all the time. It seemed like work. It was a job the whole year. Winning was just a relief. Losing was a cloud over us sometimes, and then we’d break out of it — and then go right back. But we got here. We had a chance. They were just better.”

“I think we’re always considering it. You don’t know what the opportunity is. Hopefully you’ve built the program to be as flexible as it can be at the time that opportunities are created. But I can’t predict when that will happen, nor know. When you have one of the great players of all time and one of the great coaches of all time, knowing how you’re going to fill those shoes (is impossible) because you’re not. It will be numbing and changing. Those are the people who we’ve come to work with and battle with, committed ourselves to as they’ve committed to the rest of us. And that will be hard.”"

“This series is not over. We’ve got guys with too much pride to even start thinking about it being over. At the end of the day, our focus will be, ‘How do we get better than we did in Game 3 and Game 4 at home?’ We’re going with that bunker mentality in Game 5.”

“I got stuck in traffic. I was sitting there in traffic for like 30 minutes and I wasn’t moving. I did a u-turn in the middle of the street and went back home. I jumped on the subway. Good ole reliable subway. I don’t think anyone expected us to be playing today when they planned to have a marathon and a Game 7 on the same day. I got stuck. Believe me, you don’t want to be on a subway going to a Game 7. You saw the pictures and everything. I didn’t think anybody would recognize me but you saw the pictures (on twitter) and everything. I think the shirt gave me away.”

Jason Kidd With Some Lofty Praise For Dwane Casey

“He’s a competitor. For one, he’s a great person as a coach and off the court too. When you talk about him as a human being he’s as good as it gets. I’m glad he got this second opportunity (to be a head coach in the NBA). He’s never going to quit no matter what the circumstances.  He’s going to fight. When he had a group of guys that believe in what he’s saying you can see that on the floor. You can see that with this current Raptors team that they are going to fight to the end.”
