Could Chris Bosh be back in the league someday?
It’s probably not likely, but have a look yourself at evidence that a comeback could be in the cards.
Bosh wrote a letter last week to fans of the Miami Heat where he thanked them for their support throughout his tenure in South Beach.
That’s not the tune he was spitting when recently caught up with on the California streets, though.
In an interview with TMZ Sports, Bosh admitted returning to basketball could be in the works, though it is hard to tell whether he’s serious or not from viewing the footage.
When asked by the TMZ Sports reporter what’s next for him, Bosh replied: “Basketball and stuff.”
The reporter persisted, following up to ask if a comeback is in the works.
“Always thinking about playing, my brother,” Bosh said, although he stayed in stride and generally avoided eye contact with the camera.
The reporter continued the conversation, which took place in Los Angeles, by asking if he could team up with LeBron James and the Lakers in 2018, when LeBron is rumored to be moving to the West Coast.
“Anything is possible,” Bosh said with a shrug. “Health is great, feeling great. Feeling great like you, my brother.”
He later said: “I’m a house dad. I’m a full-time house dad.”
Bosh’s house used to be American Airlines Arena, the home of the Heat.
After leaving in free agency from the Toronto Raptors, where Bosh spent the first seven seasons of his NBA career fresh out of Georgia Tech, Bosh joined Dwyane Wade and James with the Miami Heat, where the group reached the NBA Finals in all four seasons together, winning two championships.
After James left, Bosh and Wade played together for two more seasons, but Bosh was hampered by scary health situations.
Blood clots kept Bosh out of action many nights and led to the apparent end of his career when an independent medical panel determined his disorder was career-ending.
The Heat released Bosh after the findings and were able to escape any cap hit that his contract would have burdened the team with.
If he ever wants to make a comeback, Bosh would then have to receive medical clearance before signing with any team.
For his career, Bosh has made 11 All-Star teams and averaged 19.2 points and 8.5 rebounds per game. A member of the 2003-04 All-Rookie Team, Bosh made the All-Star team in each of his last 11 seasons.
