Chris Bosh hilariously recalls Ray Allen’s clutch 2013 shot on Twitter
It’s been seven years since Ray Allen made one of the most historic shots in NBA Finals history. One of the players who had an up-close view of how everything went down was former Miami Heat star, Chris Bosh. Bosh took to Twitter to hilariously downplay the gigantic moment:
I got a rebound and made a pass. https://t.co/vY90vUfh9n

The two-time NBA Champion was responding to a Twitter challenge posted by New York-based writer Jeff Eisenband to “describe your favorite sports moment, as boring as possible”. Chris Bosh was definitely spot on with that description.
It won’t come as a surprise that this particular moment in the 11-time All Star’s long NBA career would be his favorite. It was key to him winning his second (and last) championship with the Miami Heat. And arguably, this was the strongest Miami squad in the Big Three Era. It was an amazing shot and given the magnitude of the play, Bosh is probably not the only one who picks this as their favorite sports moment of all time. In case you forgot, let me refresh your memory on how exactly things went down.
The Heat were down three against the San Antonio Spurs in the dying moments of Game 6 when Bosh grabbed an offensive rebound from a missed three from LeBron James. With eight seconds left, Bosh tossed the ball to Allen in the corner and as Mike Breen would put it – “Bang!”. The rest, as they all say, is history. The Heat would go on to win the series in Game 7 to capture back-to-back NBA titles.
Leave it to Mr. Bosh to always leave us amused.
