[The Knowledge Project Ep. #120] Chris Bosh: Hunger and Greatness
Shane: Where did your love of basketball come from?
Chris: It came from my father. He would take us to the recreation centers on weekends and he played in the church leagues quite a bit. He was a very active dad and then even as he didn’t have time for doing those things, we still would go to the park, play basketball. Pretty much when I saw Michael Jordan in ‘91, ‘92. Every time I went over to my grandmother’s house in Dayton, Ohio for the summer, the Bulls would be playing and I thought that was so fascinating, that the same team was playing and then they’d get a trophy and later on I learned that it’s champagne that they’re spraying around and not only that, it was everybody watching, huddled around the TV watching the TV. Like my dad and his friends and any little boy, anything that the dad does is the thing to do.
