Chris Bosh Keeping His Options Open

Published

Don’t close the book on the career of former Miami Heat and Toronto Raptors star Chris Bosh just yet.

Bosh hasn’t stepped on the court in over a year and was released from the Miami Heat back in July, but it doesn’t mean that his playing career is over.

“I’m always going to be around the game of basketball” Bosh said on NBA TV’s Players Only night.

“I plan to keep my options open as a player moving forward, but that’s not coaching. Maybe front office work, working with teams and spreading the game, maybe teaching the game to young people, that’s something that’s a very big passion.”

Bosh will find it hard, due to all his health issues, to find his way back on the court in the NBA.

If Bosh is unable to continue his career as a player, he still wants to work close to the game.

“I would want to work with guys that maybe aren’t starters, guys that are the fourth or fifth option” Bosh explained.

“To be honest, I’m looking at today’s game and I put myself in that position and how I would benefit from the faster basketball, more threes, catch-and-go opportunities, attacking the paint with more space, that’s what kind of gets me juiced up and riled up when I watch today’s game.

I would really want to teach someone how to function without having to have plays called for you.”
