Chris Bosh has reportedly set out exactly when he plans to quit the NBA and retire from professional basketball.

According to ESPN reporter Michael Wallace, the Miami Heat star says he will play until he is 36 and then "walk away from the game to do other things."

So don't worry Bosh fans, he only turns 30 in a couple of weeks so for now the player still has a few years to go before he leaves the courts behind.

Bosh is already a 10 year league veteran though, having been drafted as the fourth overall pick in 2003 by the Toronto Raptors, so it seems logical that he will be beginning to plot life after basketball.

And while he may be confident of playing for another 6 years at least, even he is unsure as to where he will be playing as early as next year.

Currently with the Miami Heat, Bosh can opt out of his current contract at the end of this season and may seek pastures new should the right opportunity arise.

Bosh has averaged 19.4 points and 8.7 rebounds so far in his NBA career and has helped the Heat to two consecutive NBA championships.

What he has planned for his post-NBA years remains to be seen, but to date Bosh has been involved in a number of philanthropic initiatives as starring in more eclectic projects such as children's cartoons.
