This topic is one that we have talked about on this site in the past multiple times, because it’s seemingly a never ending story.
Chris Bosh, 11x All-Star, 2x NBA Champ, and one of the best Power Forward’s of our generation, has battled blood clot issues for much of the last 3 years of his life, and they have led to his premature retirement from the NBA. However – in Bosh’s eyes, it has never been, and hopefully will not be, a true retirement.
The Heat basically forced Bosh to “retire” so they could attempt to move on from his contract, while still being able to pay him the majority of the money he was owed, because they were truly looking out for Bosh’s best interests.
The NBA declared that Bosh’s health issues were career-ending in June of 2017, but Bosh seems to feel differently. He told Stephen A. Smith he isn’t done yet, but we’ve heard this from Bosh before.
Personally, I think Chris Bosh needs to hang it up and move on, maybe moving into coaching or some other role in the game of basketball if he feels that he has unfinished business. To me, blood clots are not a knee, or ankle injury where maybe pushing it could leave you with a limp or on crutches down the road, but blood clots are not something that I would push, and I think the majority of the NBA is going to agree with me.
Even if Bosh thinks he can make a comeback, he’s going to need a team to take a major risk on him.
