Chris Bosh calls Oklahoma City Thunder crowd ‘regular’

Chris Bosh isn’t winning any friends over in Oklahoma City during these NBA Finals. After 10 points and five rebounds in Miami’s Game 1 loss in the NBA Finals, Bosh had some words regarding the Thunder home crowd.

“Everybody keeps talking about how loud it is,” Bosh told CBS Sports. “It’s regular. We’ve been in a lot of other arenas and it’s about the same. Once it gets really loud, it’s all about the same.”

This is obviously not true. The Thunder clearly have the best crowd in the NBA and is probably the loudest too. This is a dig from Bosh who is certainly going to hear it from the Thunder crowd in Game 2.

Bosh didn’t start Game 1 as the Heat decided to stay small with Shane Battier in the starting lineup instead. It actually worked pretty well as the Heat ended up with a lot of open looks from three which they capitalized on.

The fact remains though that the Heat need a lot more from Bosh to beat the Thunder. That probably means he needs to start whether it’s for Battier or Udonis Haslem.

Erik Spoelstra didn’t reveal if Bosh was starting or not until an hour before the tip of Game 1 and will likely do the same for Game 2 which is Thursday night at 9 p.m. on ABC.
