Chris Bosh Appears in Parks & Rec, Dominates High School Basketball

Chris Bosh is known for being one of the most underachieving big men in the NBA these days. In his days with the Toronto Raptors, he was one of the most feared post players in the league. His long, lanky stature was put to good use as he led the Raptors as the team’s best player and put up the numbers that challenged for the best marks from a big man in the league.

Those days are long-gone as the Miami Heat power forward has been as pedestrian as a big man can be in this league by averaging just under seven rebounds per game in 2012-13. That’s just awful for a player who’s 6-foot-11 and has the athletic ability like no one else his size.

It’s hard to see Bosh underachieve so much in such a short period of time after being dominant.

Bosh took some time away from the professional game to appear on the hit TV show, Parks & Rec, as a high school basketball player and talented French horn player. Watch the hilarious appearance from the NBA champion — he might have a future in acting.

Dunking on a scrawny high school basketball players and proclaiming his superiority as a French horn player has to be the funniest thing Bosh has ever done on national television — other than his performance in the playoffs this past season.

I’m trying to figure out if Bosh was told to actually play for real because he looked like he was breaking a sweat and enjoying the way he was dominating teenagers who are half his size.

Bosh being Bosh.
