Chris Bosh Had His Very Own ‘Timeless Art Of Seduction’ Photo Shoot With Maxim

"Lover boy!! You are a lover boy!!"

Dear Lord. Bad Idea Photo Shoot, man. Bad Idea Photo Shoot.

According to a recent write-up in Maxim, Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh is an “Icon.” Funny, I must have missed the memo. Usually, people have to accomplish something of consequence in their chosen field to achieve such status. In fact, he is so much of an icon that he was treated by the Maxim folks like one of their patented, comely cover girls by being treated to his own sexy, yet playful and innocent, photo shoot.

You can see video of the Bad Idea Photo Shoot here, if that’s the kind of thing that floats your boat. Myself? I couldn’t bring myself to watch it, but I imagine it went a little something like this:

Maxim Photographer: No, no. You’re cocky. The camera loves cockiness. Look were not going to do anything that makes you feel uncomfortable. The key word is tasteful. Now, I want you to relax and have fun because your a fun guy. Alright, let’s do it. Okay come on. Feel the beat. Feel the beat. You know you have a real nice six-inch pool but it’s hard to tell how nice it is…

Chris Bosh: Well do you want me to jump in and splash around?

Maxim Photographer: I don’t know, it’s up to you.

Chris Bosh: Do you think it would be better if I did?

Maxim Photographer : It might be. I mean, whatever you want.

Chris Bosh: Alright!!

Maxim Photographer: That’s it Chris. Come on, come on. Give it to me. Come on, work it. Work it. Yeah, be a man, be a man!

The only thing missing would have been a shirtless pose on a couch. Just saying.
