It’s time to start asking serious questions about this Heat team that has already lost power forward Josh McRoberts for the season and is currently starting career reserve Chris Andersen at the position. First question: Can this team be any good? “I’m a pretty optimistic guy, so I’m always going to say yeah, but I haven’t seen it yet,” said Heat center Chris Bosh, who had 15 points and played less than 18 minutes. “We can keep talking for the whole time like next week, next month, next season, but it’s going to keep going until we change it.” The Heat (14-20) plays the Brooklyn Nets at 6p.m. Sunday at AmericanAirlines Arena, and the game will be a tough turnaround for a few reasons. For starters, the Heat loses a few hours of rest amid this road-home back-to-back, and the streaking Nets have won six of their last seven games. And then, of course, there is the perception of apathy. Miami Herald

Miami Heat center Chris Bosh wants to make one thing clear. There was never any animosity toward former teammate LeBron James. In October, he said the two hadn't spoken since James departed for Cleveland. With James back in town for the first timeThursday, he reiterated the comments were made in the heat of competition. "It was taken out of proportion," Bosh said before the game. "That's all it was. I've always been like that. I haven't said anything about him personally. He's a good guy. He's been through a lot. We've played on other teams before. That's just how it is." South Florida Sun-Sentinel

Bosh was left out of this week's storylines between James and Heat guard Dwyane Wade, who said they remained close friends despite the separation. Bosh raised eyebrows two months ago when he had no interest discussing James when the Cavs and Heat met for a preseason game in Brazil. "If guys aren't in this locker room, I don't have much time for them -- if any," Bosh said at the time. Bosh felt the comments were overblown in the media. He said he has never had beef with James. "It's not fair to anybody," Bosh said. "It's not fair to him and his family. It's not fair to me and mine. It's just the nature of the business … I'm a competitor. I'm trying to win. That's how it's always been with me. That's how I was raised in this game." South Florida Sun-Sentinel
