NBA rumors are swirling around Chris Bosh. The All-Star center wants to play again this season, but the Miami Heat are against the idea. The franchise is concerned about the health of Bosh, even though he keeps insisting that he's healthy enough to play. Bosh doesn't want to miss out on competing for a championship, so he is doing something dramatic to try to force the Heat to let him back on the court. According to ESPN, Bosh has asked the NBA Players Association to convince Miami to let him play.
For years, Chris Bosh was the franchise player for the Toronto Raptors. He would frequently put up tremendous numbers. That led to a few appearances at the NBA All-Star Game. The fan base was none too pleased when he decided to take his talents down to South Beach and join the Miami Heat. The two teams are facing one another in the second round of the playoffs right now.
Chris Bosh has been using social media and mainstream media in an attempt to convince the Miami Heat to let him play. Several journalists and analysts have talked about how badly Bosh was missed during the series against the Charlotte Hornets. Bosh made sure to let everyone know of that by posting their tweets on his own timeline. He's even posted videos of himself making outside shots to let the world know that he is capable of playing.
The Miami Heat really could use Chris Bosh against the Toronto Raptors. Their foe is led by one of the best back courts in the NBA. Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan are difficult to stop, so Goran Dragic and Dwyane Wade have their work cut out for them. Bosh could have been the advantage that the Heat need because very few big men in the National Basketball Association can cover him.
The situation between Chris Bosh and the Miami Heat is turning ugly. It's hard to blame either side. Bosh is a competitor. He wants to play, especially since it's the NBA Playoffs. It's also hard to blame the Heat because they need to ensure that players are protected. A bad incident not only gives them a black eye, but it also hurts the entire National Basketball Association.
