I have an 8-year-old daughter and, about a year ago, I had to sit down and have a very serious talk with her. Chris Bosh made an appearance on one of her favorite Disney Channel shows, Jessie, and she wouldn't stop going around and telling people that Bosh was her favorite player. SO EMBARRASSING, especially since I'm a Bulls fan. Who do I have to call to get Derrick Rose a cameo?!

Anyway…

It seems she's not the only little kid keeping an eye out for Bosh because, earlier today, Amar'e Stoudemire made an appearance at Dillard Elementary School in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. And while you'd think that that would have made the kids excited to go back to school, there was at least one kid who would have preferred to have Bosh there instead of Stoudemire. The kid approached Stoudemire as he was posing for photos and asked him if he was Bosh and everything:

Stoudemire reportedly laughed it off. But c'mon, little man. Show some respect!

How confused is that kid gonna be when Bosh and Stoudemire are on the floor together for the Heat next season?
