Former Heat star Chris Bosh open to broadcasting or front office career
Former NBA big man Chris Bosh is finally deciding to call it a career and has told Bill Simmons of The Ringer that he will officially announce his retirement from the NBA on March 26.
So, what will Bosh do now?
He told Simmons that he is open to broadcasting or a front-office career and has been preparing for both, working with a speech coach and studying the league’s collective bargaining agreement.
Bosh has done some media segments before and seemed to be pretty good, so it’s easy to see him joining a booth somewhere. As far as a front-office job? More power to him. Bosh is definitely an intelligent man, and he should flourish in an executive role.
Of course, given his style of play, it’s also easy to see him flourishing in today’s space-and-pace game.
Unfortunately, persistent blood clot issues would not allow it, as Bosh suffered blood clots during the 2014-15 and 2015-16 campaigns with the Heat, effectively ending his NBA career.
The 34-year-old attempted a comeback, but the same issues re-surfaced, causing the Heat to part ways with the former All-Star.
Bosh, who played his collegiate basketball at Georgia Tech, was originally drafted by the Toronto Raptors in 2003 and spent the first seven years of his career with the Raptors before joining the Heat during the summer of 2010.
Along with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, Bosh went on to win back-to-back titles in Miami in 2012 and 2013. He made 11 All-Star teams and ended his career with averages of 19.2 points and 8.5 rebounds per game.
