It's a shame that Chris Bosh and his glittering career are staring into the abyss right now as all the great times he has had on South Beach appear to be washing away.
Despite several All-Star appearances and two NBA titles, in light of blood clot issues, Heat president Pat Riley is ready to discard Bosh and try and claim back some of the $76 million the forward is set to make over the next three years.
It's an acrimonious and somewhat distasteful way to end the service of such a loyal and giving player, but, from Riley's point of view, this is a business and Bosh's health is in serious question.
However, Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra does not share that opinion.
“My thoughts don’t change. And they won’t change,” coach Erik Spoelstra said Saturday when asked how Bosh’s negative comments on Friday toward the organization made him feel.
“I love Chris Bosh, his family. I said this so many times, Chris was very important to me as a head coach. With those teams, he was somebody I really leaned on. That extended outside the lines. It’s something I really have enjoyed and my hope is that relationship can continue.”
The two wont a pair of championships alongside LeBron James and Dwyane Wade in 2012 and 2013, but it appears there hopes of working together in Miami anymore are all but dead.
