Chris Bosh felt ‘written off’ after second blood clot diagnosis, was told career likely over
Chris Bosh felt like he was “written off” after his second blood clot diagnosis, in which Miami Heat team doctors told him that his career was probably over.
In an installment of his new “Rebuilt” series on Uninterrupted, Bosh described his reaction to the doctors’ verdict after his second scare.
“Seeing the team doctors, they told me that my season is over, my career is probably over and this just happens, this is just how it is,” Bosh said, as transcribed by ESPN’s Brian Windhorst. “I felt right away that I was written off. It was [clap, clap] put it to the side matter-of-factly. If a doctor tells me, ‘Hey that’s it and this is how that is,’ and I don’t buy that. I have the right to disagree with you.
“I know inside me I have a lot talent and a lot of ability. I have it. I know I have it. It wasn’t a matter of if I play again, it was when. So we took the bull by the horns.”
Much to his frustration, Bosh still hasn’t been formally cleared to play. He is working on a solution with the Heat, but you can see where the disagreement stems from. Bosh is certain that he can play. The team, however, still appear to have their reservations.
