Chris Bosh Still Working Out For Possible Comeback

 

After two championships with Miami, Chris Bosh was diagnosed with blot clots in his legs and lungs. This disease as well as blood thinning treatment can cause individuals to stop breathing, or cause significant damage to the heart. Something as small as elbow to a particular area could trigger this to happen, the margin for error is that close. This led to Bosh and the Miami Heat reach an agreement allowing the two parties to part ways.

The eleven time All Star whose NBA career is currently on hold said that he still is working out for a possible comeback.

 

“My health is great, I’m feeling good, still working out and just really still staying ready.”

 

If a comeback would not be possible, Bosh still plans to remain close to the game.

 

“I’m always going to be around the game of basketball. 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.”

 

In the past, players have played through injuries, on heavy medication and basically had no business on the floor. This is obviously different to the Bosh situation, but nevertheless, the later lives of those players were significantly hindered due to the poor decisions they made at the time. It’s hard to say no to the game you love, but it’s even harder walking around with a limp your whole life, or unable to play outside with your children once you have retired, or even worse, die early.

In truth, no amount of money or no supremely significant game should ever come in the way of a player’s health moving forward.
