Chris Bosh made sure to correctly answer the question.

"Not to make him feel old, I might not have been a teenager," Bosh said. "I might have been a preteen."
When the Heat play the San Antonio Spurs and the 36-year-old Duncan Thursday, it will mark yet another vintage yet still effective player they will face.
If last season was the year of the lockout, then this season belongs to the aging veteran. Duncan and the Heat's Ray Allen are among those still playing at a high level despite being in the twilight of their careers.
