“Everybody Hates Chris”: Art Soon To Imitate Life?

I’ll admit that before today, I knew next to nothing about Chris Bosh. All these years, I made zero effort to familiarize myself with his NBA career and background.

Chris Bosh

Thanks to Stefan Bondy of the NEW YORK DAILY NEWS, I now know all I need to know about him.

Bosh was in New York this week to promote one of his few sponsors, the Milk Board, when he told Bondy that he intentionally misled fans and the media about his intentions before he signed with the Miami Heat.

He also likened “playing with people’s emotions to “entertainment.”

“If you think about how many times somebody asks you, ‘How are you,’ that’s how many times I was asked, ‘Where you going? So it’s like, well, in my case, I’m going to have fun with it. I’m going to play with people’s emotions. I’m going to be high and low.

“I wouldn’t call it a game because it’s serious, but, I mean, it’s entertainment at the end of the day. It’s the truth. We’re entertaining and everything but at the same time I’m just getting my feelings out there.

“It’s entertaining to see people react to your real emotions because if it wasn’t fun I wouldn’t do it.”

To the fans who invest their emotion and hard-earned money in the Heat and to Bosh’s sponsors: Hope you’re listening.
