Word on the street is that Boshy is getting his workout and buffet-swag on to bulk up and gain some weight in preparation of the 2012-2013 season. The reason being that he [or the Heat] want him to get ready to withstand playing center full-time for the upcoming season. Read below…
Now, Barry Jackson at the Herald reports that Bosh is gaining weight and will take on the role, kind of:
Chris Bosh is adding bulk (six pounds of lean muscle) to prepare for the rigors of playing a full season at center.
Bosh let it be known when he originally came to town in 2010 that he didn’t want to make the the transition from power forward to center, but he found himself playing the role frequently last season.
Of course, the Heat are doing their best to redefine traditional positions anyway. LeBron James still considers himself a forward, but has done pretty good impressions of a point guard and, at times, a center himself.
