Chris Bosh still has an NBA comeback in his sights.
Bosh attended the Knicks’ game against the Wizards on Tuesday, and he told the New York Daily News that he is concentrating on playing again. He said that he would make a decision about his future before the All-Star break in February.
Currently 34 years old, the center last appeared for an NBA game in the 2015-16 season. He was diagnosed with a blood clot disorder which forced him to step away from the game. At the time it looked as though the effect was permanent.
Bosh said that the situation was ‘complicated’, and that he’d be willing to play for any team who’d sign him.
“It’s up to the team doctors from that team,” Bosh said. “And then we go from there.”
Drafted by the Toronto Raptors in 2003, Bosh reached the peak of his career in Miami where he won two titles. Over the course of his career, he averaged 19.5 points and 8.5 rebounds per game and made 11 All-Star teams.
Just don’t rule out him adding to those accolades. When asked about his current status as a player, Bosh said: “I have to remind people that I’m not retired yet, I haven’t made up my mind.” The two-time NBA champion continued, saying “basketball is still in my heart and on my mind, and that’s one of the main things that I’m trying to get back to. I always have to tell people that I’m still going.”
