Chris Bosh now working with Heat players
The Miami Heat are now getting some tips from a familiar (and beloved) face.
Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports that former Heat All-Star Chris Bosh was working with the team’s players on the practice court over the weekend.

The 34-year-old Bosh was also in attendance for both of the team’s home games this weekend and was in the locker room offering pointers following Miami’s loss to Minnesota on Sunday, per Five Reasons Sports Network.

Bosh, a six-time All-Star selection and two-time champion in his six seasons with Miami, has not played in nearly three years due to a blood-clotting issue. The Heat still figure to feel like home for him though, especially since there remain seven players on the current roster (Goran Dragic, Udonis Haslem, Tyler Johnson, Josh Richardson, Dwyane Wade, Hassan Whiteside, and Justise Winslow) who were teammates with Bosh.
There does still appear to be hope from Bosh that he can somehow return to the NBA, but keeping close to the action as a quasi-assistant for his former team has to be the next best thing.
