Spoelstra: Chris Bosh was ‘our most important player’

Heat coach Erik Spoelstra is tired of questions about injured forward Chris Bosh, which are asked daily at the already too-often media sessions during the Eastern Conference Finals. Spoelstra confirmed that Bosh is out Friday night and is out indefinitely after that.

“I’ve given you guys too much information already,” said Bosh.

Makes sense. But Spoelstra’s next comment seemed to come out of left field.

“Probably the biggest confidence builder for our basketball team was the fact that the last two years, we not only couldn’t win without Chris, we couldn’t play effectively without Chris,” said Spoelstra. “He was our most important player.”

There are a couple of future Hall of Famers on Miami’s roster who might argue with that.
