The Miami Heat are set to open up the 2018-19 NBA season on October 17 against the Orlando Magic. There are quite a few storylines to keep an eye on this season for the Heat, especially when it comes to star shooting guard Dwyane Wade. Wade will be playing his final NBA season and will retire at the end of the year.

Hassan Whiteside is another name to keep an eye on. After being mentioned in trade rumors all offseason long, Whiteside is still with the Heat and is one of the top players on their roster.

In a recent interview with Bleacher Report, Whiteside opened up about one former teammate that he really misses playing with. That former teammate would be veteran power forward Chris Bosh.

“Bosh helped me a lot. I really need to reach out to him, I know he’s going through a lot. I don’t know if he’ll hear this, but I miss him. I miss him a whole lot.”

Bosh has been dealing with a blood clot issue and is still hoping to make a return to the NBA. Unfortunately, doctors have refused to clear him up to this point. That has made teams choose not to sign him, despite the fact that Bosh is still more than capable of making a major impact on the court.

Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News previously reported that Bosh views the New York Knicks as a potential landing spot, although the team has yet to be reported to have interest in signing him.

The last time Bosh played in the NBA was back in the 2015-16 season with the Heat. He averaged 19.1 points per game to go along with 7.4 rebounds.

Whiteside and Bosh had a close relationship during their time as teammates. Bosh may not be able to return to the court, but he could certainly provide Whiteside with some much-needed veteran advice and wisdom.
