Oddly enough, the man who called the initial idea of the “Big 3” teaming up together with the Miami Heat “Pie in the sky,” could easily be on his way out of South Beach just three years after the infamous “Decision.”
Despite bringing Miami three straight Eastern Conference titles, the seven-footer isn’t exactly well liked in his current city and has voiced his displeasure on numerous occasions. For example, during the Eastern Conference Finals against the Indiana Pacers, Dwyane Wade threw out a quote that shows Bosh’s frustration:
“We’ve got to do a good job of making sure me and Chris have our opportunities to succeed throughout the game.”
Wade would not have said something that bitter had Bosh not been feeling the cold shoulder as well. Winning cures all, and if the Heat can pull off the comeback and uproot the San Antonio Spurs then the discontent toward LeBron James will subside. However, with a suffocating win-or-go-home atmosphere in Miami, many feel that No. 1 could be putting that Heat jersey on for the last time come Tuesday night.
With that being said, Bosh is owed upwards of $19 million in 2013-14 and has two player options worth a combined total of $42.7 million from 2014-2016 — if Bosh likes the direction in which the Heat are heading then he could easily retire as a member of the Heat.
Although his numbers have declined since leaving Toronto and going to the Orange State, NBA teams will be lining up at the door if and when Bosh’s name goes on the trade block.
