Chris Bosh Questions Miami Heat's Effort Not Talent When Discussing 2012 NBA Playoff Deficits

In nearly every series of the 2012 NBA Playoffs, the Miami Heat have made the work harder than it was supposed to be. When The Decision was made and LeBron James and Chris Bosh joined Dwyane Wade in South Beach, the Heat were supposed to dominate a weaker Eastern Conference and enjoy the spoils that several superstars bring.

However, that has not been the case against gritty teams like the Indiana Pacers or the experience of the Boston Celtics. The Playoffs are always hard, but there were definitely moments that put the Heat on the edge of not making the Finals at all. Yet Chris Bosh says it’s not a matter of talent for the Heat in any of these series. Instead, it’s just about getting these players to put forth the effort required.

"I don’t think it’s a question of talent with this team," said Bosh to the Miami Herald. "It’s always a question of the effort. As long as we bring the effort and determination and play in that desperate form, we’re really tough to beat. We can’t let our guard down because we’re at home. I’m expecting a much harder fought game than Game 2."

That’s definitely the case given how Wade has seemed to quit at times. If the Heat can convince each of their stars to give it their all, it’s going to be very difficult to keep them from hoisting the trophy at the end of the 2012 NBA Finals.
