While everyone is busy talking about LeBron James‘ game-winning layup, Paul George‘s coming-out party and Roy Hibbert‘s curious absence in overtime on Wednesday, nobody was happier to have a front-row seat to it all than Miami’s Chris Bosh.
Bosh finished Game 1 with 17 points and two rebounds, but to hear Indiana coach Frank Vogel tell it, Bosh was the key Heat player on the final play. Vogel was so worried about Bosh possibly being left open that he removed Hibbert, the team’s best shot-blocker, from the game. Tyler Hansbrough was assigned to defend the eight-time All-Star, with Sam Young ending up covering Bosh on a switch.
As everyone knows, James took advantage of Hibbert’s absence by driving to the hoop and scoring a layup as time expired. But a new camera angle shows Bosh reacting in his typical, socially awkward fashion. As James hits the layup, Bosh can be seen in the background raising his arms in celebration, but it feels like just another Bosh photobomb. Only Bosh could make celebrating a game-winning shot look so campy.
See James’ layup in the video below, and check out Bosh’s reaction at the 15-second mark.
