Chris Bosh Thanks Miami
Chris Bosh has written an open letter to Miami, thanking the city for supporting him for the past seven years.
Bosh published the letter on his website Sunday, without any mention of his current health or plans for his future. Waived by the Heat last week, he hasn’t been able to play in an NBA game since February 2016.
Bosh’s career has been interrupted by blood clots; one shut him down at the All-Star break in the 2014-15 season, and another shut him down at the All-Star break again a year later. He failed his preseason physical with the Heat in September 2016 and missed all of last season, and it is unclear if he will pursue a return to the court elsewhere.
Under league rules, he cannot play for the Heat again.
But in his letter, Bosh chose to reflect more on the good times he had since joining the Heat in 2010 and playing such a huge role in the team going to the NBA Finals in four consecutive seasons and winning two championships.
“I’ve been reflecting on my time in this great city and want to thank you for being a constant during a period of change in my life,” Bosh wrote. “I’ve experienced a few finals appearances, a couple of championships, several weddings (including my own), the birth of four kids, bonding with an entire community and a ton of ups and downs along the way.”
