The Los Angeles Lakers had a surprise visit on Tuesday during practice at the team's facility in El Segundo. Two-time NBA champion Chris Bosh was seen at the facility taking in practice while talking to his former agent and currently Lakers general manager, Rob Pelinka.
While talking to the media following practice on Tuesday, rookie Kyle Kuzma was asked about Bosh and what it was like seeing him at the facility. Kuzma spoke highly of the former Miami Heat star.
“It was cool,” Kuzma said of seeing Chris Bosh at practice. “That was one of my favorite players. I've always loved his game. Back when he was with Toronto and Miami.”
Kuzma was also asked whether he spoke to the former NBA superstar.
“I introduced myself to him. I didn't really talk to him too much. He was pretty busy talking to Rob [Pelinka], so I didn't want to interrupt.”
With Bosh being seen at Lakers practice, it's no surprise speculation would start to run rampant about his potential return to the floor. At this point, the 33-year-old hasn't indicated any desire to resurrect his playing career nor have the Lakers shown any desire to sign him or anyone else to the roster.
Bosh last played an NBA game for the Heat back in February of 2016 before issues with blood clots forced him to end his career prematurely. Although not technically retired, Bosh resuming his basketball career seems highly unlikely.
