Blood clot issues forced Chris Bosh out of the NBA despite being in his prime. He's been out for almost two years now, but he seems to be ready to return to the court anytime.
Recently, TMZ Sports spotted Bosh and asked him if he'll play for Raptors if they call upon him come playoff time. Check the video for Bosh's answer:
As observed, Bosh was high-spirited during the ambush interview. It has been his mindset ever since doctors ruled him out to ever play again. At 34-years-old, Bosh still has a few more in the tank. He himself expressed earlier this year that he's not yet done with the game of basketball.
Bosh was on ESPN's First Take last month. When asked by Stephen A. Smith if he's over and done with, Bosh replied:
“I've been in the gym. I can still play basketball. No I'm not done yet,” Bosh said.
“Yeah, I'm trying to come—man, I see all these guys shooting threes and not playing defense. Man, I mean, I got to get some of it,” he added.
Time can only tell if Bosh can play or not. When he was still active, he was one of the top forward-centers in the league. Back in the Heat's glory days, everybody had their eyes on the Wade-LeBron duo. Little attention was given to Bosh, who not only spaced the floor for the duo but also played elite-level defense.
Chris Bosh last played for the Miami Heat in the 2015-16 season. He owns NBA career averages of 19.2 points and 8.5 rebounds per game.
