Miami Heat icon Chris Bosh is set to headline Saturday's momentous Hall of Fame ceremony. Bosh has been officially retired from the NBA for four years now, but it looks like he's open to the prospect of returning sometime in the future.
Bosh's playing days may be over, but the two-time NBA champ admitted that he's already envisioned himself taking on a front-office role or perhaps even a coaching position:
“I don’t want to put any closure on it,” Bosh said, via Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel. “Some sort of front-office or coaching situation, I don’t want to throw dirt on it and say, ‘That’s it.’ All I’ll say right now, I’m concentrating on being a father and raising these kids.
“One day if I have more free time on my hands, I would definitely consider some of those things, with the right situation.”
As Bosh stated above, however, his focus right now is on being the best father he can be for his kids. All children grow up eventually, though, and perhaps Chris Bosh might be inclined to get back to work somewhere down the road.
What we can all be sure of is that the Miami Heat organization (and the fans, of course) will welcome him back with open arms. Bosh is one of the greatest players in Heat franchise history, and to have him back in the team's front office would be a welcome development. A coaching role could also be a possibility for Bosh. Perhaps a successor to Erik Spoelstra?
