Chris Bosh no longer thinks about potential NBA comeback
Former Miami Heat star Chris Bosh was forced to end his NBA career early due to blood clots. And while it hasn’t been easy for him, he has learned to accept it.
In an Instagram Live session, Bosh opened up about the thoughts of having a comeback and noted that the basketball chapter of his life is closed, per Ira Winderman of the Sun-Sentinel:
In Instagram Live session, Chris Bosh says there no longer are thoughts about a comeback, "Basketball, man, I did it." Said he worked out as recently a year ago with Juwan Howard and knee swelled up next day. "I have fully expressed myself in the art."

The Heat retired Bosh’s No. 1 jersey last season. He won two championships with the franchise during the Big 3 era with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, defeating the Oklahoma City Thunder in 2012 and the San Antonio Spurs in 2013.
Bosh finished his NBA career with averages of 19.2 points, 8.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.0 block while shooting 49.4 percent from the field, 33.5 percent from beyond the arc, and 79.9 percent from the free-throw line. He appeared in 893 games with the Toronto Raptors and Heat.
Along with being an 11-time All-Star, Bosh made the All-NBA team in 2007 and was on the All-Rookie team in 2004. He was the fourth overall pick of the Raptors in the legendary 2003 draft and was one of the most unstoppable power forwards during his prime.
Unfortunately, Chris Bosh wasn’t named a Hall of Famer for this year’s class that featured the late Kobe Bryant, as well as Kevin Garnett and Tim Duncan. The lefty took to Instagram to express his disappointment when the news came out but vowed to stay positive since he has gone through a lot in his life.
