He's the third option for Miami's Big 3, but in the playoffs, Heat power forward Chris Bosh is starting to look like he belongs with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade./AP Photo.

Chris Bosh has felt the heat this season and not just from moving from Toronto to Miami.

The Heat power forward has been criticized by many, including myself, for playing too soft or passive. He’s part of the latest Big 3, but Bosh wasn’t carrying his weight like LeBron James and Dwyane Wade had been.

Now before I go any further, these guys are not only list: Dennis Scott, Allan Houston, Rick Barry, Pistol Pete Maravich, Peja Stojakovic, Dirk Nowitzki, Paul Pierce, Stephen Curry, Wesley Person, George Gervin, Alex English, Hal Greer, Michael Redd, Michael Jordan or Chris Mullin.

Trust me, I want to put Mullin on this list. Sorry Chris.

Here we go.
