Miami Heat succumbed to a fourth loss in six games against Atlanta Hawks on Monday night. But, says Chris Bosh, now is not the time to panic. And, if you do, then, well, you're an idiot.
The Hawks came out with the win by 121-114 at the Philips Arena to ensure the Heat had to taste defeat once again as they bid to secure the three-peat with a third successive NBA crown.
LeBron and Co certainly are not playing like champions at the moment, with a record of 5-5 from their last 10, but it would appear premature to worry about their prospects given their record for the season as a whole.
The Heat are 29-12 at the halfway point and, when asked about potential panic following the Hawks game, Bosh was pretty clear with what he thought about anyone doubting Miami's credentials to make it three in a row.
According to Ira Winderman, Miami Heat reporter for the South Florida Sentinel, Bosh said: "If you’re panicked, you’re an idiot."
Bosh will have a chance to silence the 'idiots' when the Heat host the Boston Celtics at the American Airlines Arena on Wednesday.
