Remember Major League 2? Remember how Ricky "Wild Thing" Vaughn played by Charlie Sheen showed up to training camp wearing a suit, a hot blond agent/trophy girlfriend and an arsenal of awful pitches he had given names to as some sort of attempt at branding. I mean who could forget Jack Parkman naming one of the pitches the master-baiter, (OK go ahead and laugh at that word) later changed to the humiliator? Eventually, Vaughn went back to "Wild Thing", striking out Parkman with good ol' number 1, the Terminator. The same thing happened to Willy Mays Hays, who tried to become a power hitter and it of course failed, leading Hays, played brilliantly by Pittsburgh Steelers Head Coach Mike Tomlin, to revert to his old base stealing ways. The moral of Major League 2 is that change isn't always a good thing.
You could say the same thing about portions about the Miami Heat's first season. I'm not going to write the same tired essay about what went wrong and pee all over what ended up being one of the most eventful and entertaining season for any team in NBA history. I'm a solutions based guy. I will say though, Chris Bosh's season specifically has some Wild Thing Vaughn & Willie Mays Hays to it. There's a guy who was told by everyone that he had to become a tough post players who rebounded and blocked shots and everything else that wasn't his strong suit (though his rebounding number in Toronto were awesome). But being a low post threat hasn't ever been Bosh's strong suit, like power hitting was never Willie Mays Hays' strong suit or like the master-baiter er... the humiliator was Wild Thing's strong suit.
