On today's Pardon My Take, Mr. Cat and Mr. Commenter welcomed on recurring guest Chris Bosh to the show. The 2x NBA Champion gave his thoughts on the NBA Finals, the Heat Culture, and one of the top storylines inside the bubble right now... Jimmy Butler's coffee! Would an 11x All-Star be willing to whip out his wallet for Butler's beverages?
Mr. Cat: If you were on thee Heat right now, Chris Bosh, you're 36, you're a wily veteran on the Heat right now. Are you paying for Jimmy's coffee?
Chris Bosh: No. You're saying, you're in Disney World. I'm going to get some of that Disney World coffee.
Mr. Cat: OK, so, you're boycotting Jimmy's...
Chris Bosh: I wouldn't boycott it, I just wouldn't buy it, I wouldn't purchase it.
Mr. Cat: Would you be like, "Jimmy, give it to me. I'm the vet here."
Chris Bosh: Yeah, and if he resisted, I'd be like, "Alright, cool." But I'd definitely try to just take coffee, I'm not paying for it. I'm not paying for coffee, bro.
Mr. Cat: That's the thing. I think that people keep talking about Jimmy getting all this, you know, charging all his teammates. It's because he's probably charging, like they got young guys. You know, Duncan Robinson is paying for coffee. Meyers Leonard is paying for the coffee.
Chris Bosh: Now, with that said, with that said, if he makes a great cup of coffee, that's a whole other conversation. I'm serious about my coffee. You know, they probably don't have cash in the bubble. I. don't know how that works, I don't have the Cash App and all that stuff like you guys, you know what I'm saying. But if it's worth, what is it, $40 now?
Mr. Commenter: Is it up to 40 now?
Mr. Cat: It's crazy. It's a Finals pricing.
Chris Bosh: (Laughing) Premium pricing? I mean, if it's worth, if I get that satisfaction, I paid $20-$40 for a cup of coffee, and I get it, than okay. But he's got to make a hell of a cup of coffee, and the cups need to be, like, you can take those home.
Mr. Cat: Commemorative.
Chris Bosh: Some very commemorative, yeah, autograph it, I need a picture, I need you to tweet me a shout out, I need all that stuff.
Mr. Commenter: Jimmy probably did get an ATM delivered just to his room and put like a $9.99 surcharge on all the withdrawals.
Chris Bosh: He seems to be very business savvy. He's got the logos. He's got the hats. I mean, this is crazy.
Who knows what would happen if Bosh was still on the Heat and tried to get some free coffee from Jimmy Butler. It does seem like the Marquette product does not like to break his own rules, but for a key piece during the Heat's Big Three run in 2011-2014? Maybe he would reconsider.
