At the start, Miami Heat's Chris Bosh wasn't exactly what you would consider a center. Bosh really didn't like it either.

Back when he played with the Toronto Raptors, he played some time at the five but really didn't like it as much as he does playing the power forward position.

However, with Miami playing a lot of small ball in the playoffs in an en-route to an NBA championship last season, Bosh played a lot of center than what he was comfortable with. When it needs to happen, Bosh is their man at the five, and he excelled at it last season.

Bosh tells TrueHoop that he's getting used to the position he's looking to play a lot more now.

“It’s becoming natural to me,” he said. “I have a very unique opportunity to do something very special for myself and my team. I think all the time that you have to evolve and get better. This is me evolving as a player.”

What makes Bosh dangerous is how athletic and skillful he really is for a power forward. Let alone being a center makes it scarier as other big guys who not as athletic may not be able to guard his killer mid-range jump shots or even three-pointers.

"We’re such a unique team,” Bosh said. “We have such great guys that are very talented. It’s just all over the place — I may be at the top of the key, I might be in the corner, I might be on the block, I might be on the wing. I prepare for everything.”

We'll see how the Heat role with this coming into the new season that launches next month.
