LeBron James Was Surprised Heat Moving On From Chris Bosh

LeBron James shared his thoughts on the Chris Bosh situation with the Miami Heat. Bosh has missed time over the past two seasons due to blood clots, and failed his preseason physical. Miami Heat President Pat Riley confirmed that they were no longer working on Bosh’s return to the team.

“We all know it’s probably a difficult situation for him,” James said Tuesday, after the Cavs’ first practice. “(I was) pretty surprised a little bit to hear that the team is just done with him, and then to come out and say it. It’s not like I’ve been there, to know exactly what’s going on in the interior. So I’ve only seen it from the exterior like the rest of us.

“So, um, I just wish the best for him and he has my support.”

Bosh worked out over the summer and seemed very optimistic about his return. In fact he was planning to shoot a mini -doc via LeBron’s “Uninterrupted” entitled “Rebuilt”

Bosh is still owed $79 million over the next three seasons from the Heat. He doesn’t appear to be considering retirement. The Heat would receive cap relief on Feb. 9 if Bosh is declared medically unable to play by an NBA specialist.
