All indications were that if LeBron James left the Miami HeatChris Bosh would do the same. It was well known that the Houston Rockets had a max offer to Bosh on the table, but apparently Pat Riley and the Heat stepped up their game.

This news is definitely shocking, to say the least. Maybe this was Bosh’s plan all along? He’ll end up with more money and be able to stay in a place he apparently loves.

At the same time, there’s word that negotiations are underway to bring Dwyane Wade back to South Beach as well.

I get this move from a financial perspective, and I get it from the standpoint of not wanting to move again, but I don’t get it from a basketball perspective. Bosh joining the Rockets was the better move for his on-court career. He could have formed a new Big Three in Houston with James Harden and Dwight Howard, and also played alongside a stronger supporting cast.

Maybe Riley has more tricks up his sleeve to make the Heat better? Until free agency is completely in the books we won’t know for sure. But at this time, Bosh’s decision to return to South Beach is a bit of a head-scratcher.
