It’s obvious to anyone who’s tuned in to watch Team USA this summer that they look to LeBron James to set the tone with his play and with his voice. But after Chris Bosh stepped up against the Greeks to boost his average over the course of the three official contests to 11.6 points and 5 boards per, has he established himself as one of Team USA’s leaders?

That’s what his hometown Toronto Star is saying in an article published this morning, “Bosh Emerging as a U.S. Leader.”

Bosh has far eclipsed Carlos Boozer as the backup centre on a smallish American team and with Dwight Howard‘s propensity to draw fouls, it could mean more time for the 6-foot-11 Bosh.

He’s responded each time, playing with an intensity and passion that was missing his first time around with the American team.

“We’re going to have to play passionate basketball and when we do that, that gets everybody into it and we can keep the intensity level up for the whole 40 minutes,” said Bosh.
