Chris Bosh was shocked by LeBron James’ decision to leave Heat

Chris Bosh tongueIf you were shocked by LeBron James’ announcement that he is leaving the Miami Heat to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers, you are not alone. Even LeBron’s ex-teammates were surprised.

Chris Bosh, who also opted out of his contract with the Heat following the season, has been abroad traveling with his family in recent weeks. Rather than the Heat’s Big Three working together to plan the team’s future, LeBron had been working independently of Bosh and Dwyane Wade, who share the same agent. We now know that’s because LeBron was plotting to leave the team.

Upon learning of LeBron’s decision, Bosh said there was a “shock factor.”

Bosh makes out quite well in this whole situation. Rather than taking a pay cut to stay with the Heat, Bosh is going to sign a maximum contract worth $119 million over five seasons. He loves Miami and wanted to stay there with his family, so I’ll bet he never imagined he’d be getting this kind of max money while being able to remain in the city he loves. He also gets a chance to be a team leader again.

Bosh will be the top player on the Heat team, which will still have a competitive core. In addition to Bosh, the team agreed to deals with Luol Deng and Josh McRoberts. They likely are bringing back Chris Andersen and Mario Chalmers as well. They are probably going to sign Dwyane Wade, too.

LeBron’s departure shocked Bosh, but few will benefit from the move as much as he will. Now he gets to be a star again and remind people what he can do.

    So, where does this Heat team finish in the east? I would think 3rd or 4th place.

    I don’t think that high. Cavs, Pacers, Wizards are all better. Toronto and Chicago too. They’ll probably be around Brooklyn and Charlotte – somewhere 6-8 is my guess.

    That’s anyone’s guess. Mine is either 8th seed getting swept by Cavs or 9th and missing out completely. Wade is going to have to play many many more minutes this year if they want to compete.

    Heat will be ok kyrie is their wade ok iam a duke fan he has never played a complete season in college or the nba ok as for the cavs they’re good enough to leave the east now but not good enough to beat any team in the west in a 7 game series and to LeBron its going to be hard to be a coach player gm at the same time ask Jordan how that went

  • FoxTrotWhiskey1

    Wasn’t LeBron really a coach player gm at Miami? You think Spolestra won all those games? Please

  • forget LeBron

    U are right but not a spo fan always thought we needed a new coach when James left to come to Miami but like I said James will be in hot water win he can’t produce a ring hes an idiot he’s chasing talent that’s all he just changed up for a younger team if he was trying to when by himself why recruit love Allen jones really lebolt try seeing if u can win with that team cavs built without u then recruit if u are the best

    He’s doing nothing different than 4 years ago. Was it a problem for you then?
