Question If You Were Bosh, Would You Want To Stay?

Doug breaks it down in his blog this morning.

Let’s say you’re 24 years old and you’ve been in the NBA for six years.

In that time, you’ve consistently averaged 20 points and 10 rebounds, been chosen to four all-star teams (three times by the coaches) and been a pretty big role player on an Olympic gold medal team many think is the second-best team ever put together.

Now, in those six years you have:

Played for three different head coaches.

Played for two different general managers.

You have seen 48 players come and go in that period, and that doesn’t include your current 12 teammates, at least a few of whom will be gone when the next training camp comes along. So, it’s 60 guys who’ve worn the same uniform as you in almost six season, a startling roster turnover by anyone’s standards.

In those years, of those 60 players, precisely two have been named even the NBA player of the week once and only one has been in the top three of any significant year-end award.

You’ve re-signed once with your current team and saw its win totals diminish in each of the past three seasons.

Tell me, in all honesty, would you stay?

Oh and you live in a place where you are freezing you ass off all season long if you go outside.

I wouldn't stay for that reason alone.

I'm assuming you don't live in Canada then.

I do but I'm not originally from Texas...If I could go get the same job for similar pay in a place with beautiful weather, sign me up!

Wouldn't you? I'm willing to bet Bosh doesn't do ANY winter sports that would benefit him being in climate.

I agree with you for the most part, but to be completely honest I don't think I'd give up Canada's quality of life to live in a place like Miami. I've always figured Miami to be the closest thing to a third-world city not in a third-world country; huge rich-poor divide and what not.

I would live in Australia though - a "warm Canada" as my mom likes to call it.

weather doesnt play a big factor for me
as long as the city is entertaining and the quality of life is good Im good
NYC is cold in the winter but people seem to like it
Id rather live in TO that Orleans or Miami
The heat is annoying after a while
I too have lived in Texas. Toronto is more fun and entertaining.
Texas is more suburban oriented. It really depends on what you prefer.
