Birdman on starting, just b/c: "You go to get in your car, what do you do? Start it up...Bro, I'm a vet. I also have a Vette."
Birdman on starting, just b/c: "It’s like any other start. You go to put your cup of noodles into the microwave, what do you press? Start."
Birdman is penciled in to make his third-straight start for the Heat on Sunday. He has never started three straight in his career.
Proceed with caution, America.

Bosh probably could play on Christmas, but he would be highly susceptible to another sprain or worse if not fully healthy. It's a gamble.
Chris Bosh is out for Sunday's game against the Rondo-less Celtics. Would be surprised at this point if Bosh made it back for Christmas.
