Chris Bosh is Confucius-like, a shaman, a soothsayer, a fortune teller and a prophet.
Possessing genetic traits that are only rivaled by the great prophets Ezekiel and Daniel, Chris Bosh used his abilities in clairvoyance to tell all basketball fans before the NBA season ever started that Kevin Love was going to have difficulties playing with NBA superstar LeBron James.

You can pick any website, publication, or newspaper that quoted Bosh, the proclamation was made very clear.
October 10, 2014 in a nesn.com post by Andre Khatchaturian, Bosh was quoted as telling the Bleacher Report as it pertained to Kevin Love playing with King James:
“It’s going to be very difficult for him. Even if I was in his corner and I was able to tell him what to expect and what to do, it still doesn’t make any difference. It’s extremely difficult and extremely frustrating. He’s going to have to deal with it.”
What has taken place since Bosh made that statement between Love and LeBron is well-documented.
We have seen LeBron basically say that Love needs to fit in instead of fit out. Remember the tweet on Twitter:
He came out later and said that the tweet was directed toward Love who at the time was having a hard time finding his way to fit in with the team.
Love was quoted as saying before the season according probasketballtalk.com via Dave McMenamin of ESPN.
“I’m comfortable and just not trying to, I guess, fit in so much. I had a talk with the guys on the plane ride over [to Brazil] and also at different practices off the floor and they told me to fit out. Just be myself.”
This is where the issues began between Kevin Love and LeBron James.
Chris Bosh foresaw issues taking place if Love did not go into the situation with the right mindset.
Bosh spoke about the mentality one should have before playing with the great King James in this parable from a businessinsider.com post by Tony Manfred:
“You just get your entree and that’s it. It’s like, wait a minute, I need my appetizer and my dessert and my drink, what are you doing? And my bread basket. What is going on? I’m hungry! It’s a lot different. But if you can get through it, good things can happen. But it never gets easy. Even up until my last year of doing it, it never gets easier.”
Love is getting 12.8 shot attempts worth of entrée and that is it. The appetizer and drink will not be given to him.
He is going to have to figure out how to get those extras himself either defensively or on the offensive boards.
Bosh included the rewards of crucifying his game for the greater glory of the team when he likened the sacrifice of his numbers to not eating.
“What is going on ? I’m Hungry !” These phrases describe a man who is used to feasting but is not getting fed the way he was accustomed to.

However, there is hope in the parable from the prophet Chris Bosh when he says, ” It’s a lot different. But if you can get through it, good things can happen”.
Bosh truly lived that gospel. Two NBA Championships and a 5-year $118 million contract later, Bosh has been to the promised land that is offered through the dying of self to King James.
Kevin Love, however, seems to want to run afoul of the wisdom the great prophet Bosh spoke.
Love slowly has alienated himself it has appeared, and Lebron James has not tried to embrace him as a disciple the way he has J.R., Shump, Kyrie, Timofey, Tristan, and other followers who believe in his power.
King James is at a point where faith in Love is not displayed as evidenced by Love sitting on the the bench in fourth quarters.
People would blame David Blatt for that, but LeBron does not trust the Judas type tendencies of Kevin Love.
Love even blasphemed when he suggested that Russell Westbrook is the MVP of the league instead of LeBron. Those are the words of a false prophet in a lot of hoop scholar eyes.
Kevin Love does not seem to possess that fruit of the spirit “patience” the way the honorable prophet Chris Bosh has.
If Love simply meditated on Bosh’s words, showed the same focus during this process, and understood that the fasting as it pertains to his stats will bear fruit, you would not see all this discord.

Chris Bosh spoke but Kevin Love did not heed the pearls of wisdom that was thrown at him.
You can’t throw your pearls before swine a great man said though.
Chris Bosh lived through what Kevin Love is going through, gained the gift of prophecy, and plays in abundance now because of his faith.
Kevin Love needed to pay attention to how the honorable prophet went about this situation. He may be able to bear similar fruit.
But everyone has a story to write, and the Book of Love may be destined to have a different ending from the Book of Bosh.
