Heat Bosh: There is No Link to Miami Heat

Even both sounds like he's getting fed-up with all the rumours.

The quotes come courtesy of Fox Sports Radio and an interview conducted with Bosh by host Sean Farnham and Entourage star Jerry Ferrara (a.k.a., Turtle).

Q. Evidently your friends are talking. The Miami Herald reported that a close friend of yours said you apparently had a mutual interest in the Miami Heat and would love to be added via trade this summer or free agency in 2010. Is Miami a destination that you'd like to play in?

Bosh: "As of right now, I'm not sure. I like Miami, don't get me wrong. But I don't know what comes along with being a part of that organization. I don't even have any friends in Miami, which was the funniest part. A close friend of mine hit me yesterday and was like 'Hey there’s another article out' and I was like 'What now?' 'Apparently a friend in Miami said you're going to Miami.' He sent me the article and I read it, and I'm like, 'now they’re just making stuff up.' "

Q. The free agency question...

Bosh: "You know the crazy thing about it is, I got that question a lot this year. I can only imagine how next year is going to be. Its like '2010 is coming up, you are going to be a free agent. Where are you going to go? Come here.' Every city I’m in, they ask me to play for their team. It’s something to deal with, and I think sometimes you just have to set the record straight. What do you want me to do? I don’t know where I am going. I don’t know what the future holds. What might be good today may not be good tomorrow. I guess it's a lot of fun for some people because it's speculation. It's thousands of possibilities because there are going to be a lot of free agents that year."

Thing is, it doesn't matter what Bosh or Dwyane Wade or LeBron James say. It's what they do. Bosh already has said he will not extend with the Raptors this summer. Wade has left the possibility open. James has mostly been mum.

None can become free agents before July 1, 2010, if they become free agents, at all. All are eligible to be traded. The clock is ticking.

Slowly. Very slowly.

I know Stephen A. Smith no longer works for ESPN. One of the major reasons was his claim that Bosh demanding a trade during the trade deadline. Which was completely false when Bosh himself put down that rumor.

Maybe someone in the Miami Herald will be losing his/her job? Where is accountability in Sports Journalism these days?

there's no way they let him go for that
he would sue in a heartbeat. it's impossible to prove either way and without proof, he can't be fired.

if his contract was up, that might be possible, but even then, usually the reason journalists lose their job is because nobody reads them

i also liked vince but look what happend to him,
and chris Bosh will always be my favourite player but Raptors will always be my favourite team. He shouldve just kept his mouth shut because now theres more rumours and more quetions for him to answer and he is loosing his supporters. if he is gona act like vince and want to leave Raptors than i will boo him all i want! but personally i dont believe he will and that comment was just a joke..

I didn't say the Bosh Debacle was the sole reason Steven A Smith was removed from ESPN, but it was one of the few factors:

"But once Shapiro left ESPN, Smith had lost his only major Bristol ally. After his Quite Frankly TV show tanked, and his ESPN radio show sagged in the ratings, ESPN banished S.A.S. to its NBA analysis desk. And even there Smith has been a dim bulb for Bristol, getting mocked by colleague Tim Legler and botching a breaking story on Chris Bosh..........Stephen A. Smith will be gone completely from ESPN at the end of the NBA playoffs."

the Carter situation and the Bosh situation are nothing alike cb4real. vince gave up on the team and forced a trade right after the raps shelled out big bucks to re-sign the players he wanted to the team (ad, jyd, aw). Bosh has given 100% the whole time without a quality supporting cast and has said nothing more than the fact that he will test free agency when his contract is up. he would be a fool not to. this is part of the business and absolutely nothing like the Carter antics.
