Heat to retire Chris Bosh’s jersey

Chris Bosh

The Chris Bosh-Miami Heat split wasn’t exactly the most amicable, but now it finally appears to have reached a happy ending of sorts.

The Heat and president Pat Riley announced on Tuesday that Bosh has officially been waived by the team and that his No. 1 jersey will be retired.

Bosh, the 11-time All-Star, played six years for the Heat and was instrumental to their four consecutive NBA Finals appearances from 2011 to 2014 and back-to-back championships. But his blood-clotting condition put his playing career to an abrupt halt and triggered an icy saga between Bosh and the Heat.

The two sides are said to have mended their relationship in recent months however, and they reached a special parting agreement not long after that where Bosh’s salary would come off the books completely. Now that the whole ordeal has drawn to a close, the Heat are finally and rightfully free to honor one of the most important players in franchise history in appropriate fashion.
