Miami Heat big man Chris Bosh is making the move from power forward to center this season, and the 10-year veteran said he is ready for the challenge, and that it's just part of the changing landscape of the NBA, via the Sun Sentinel:

Bosh said the move is "over analyzed" because the evolution at center.

"The game was different back then. The game changes every now and then. At that point, it was all about girth. You have to be big, Anthony Mason and Charles Oakley and Patrick Ewing and Vlade Divac. It's different now. The game is a lot faster. If you're big, we're going to run right by you."

Bosh played most of last season as the Heat's center because Miami didn't have a better option.

Bosh, 28, averaged 18 points per game and 7.9 rebounds per game in 57 starts last season. He played in 14 games in the Heat's NBA championship run, averaging 14 points per game.
