We’re sure that many have heard about the heartbreaking situation facing the Miami Heat's Chris Bosh. Bosh was not cleared by the NBA for play this season due to on-going issues with blood clots that he has been battling for a few years.
Many fans are questioning why the NBA Championship winner does not simply retire due to his condition. Bosh provided an answer to this all too familiar question when speaking with news source, “Uninterrupted” recently. “I want my children to know that daddy was a fighter and he just didn't give up very easily," he stated.
Bosh currently has five children. He is still technically a member of the Heat franchise and will be paid $76 million over the next three seasons whether he plays or not. However, the money isn’t fazing Chris Bosh and does not outweigh his desire to continue to play basketball. He went on to state, “What I would say to the people, who just see the money and kind of see my situation and say, 'Hey, just walk away,' I get it. I totally get it. I understand you. I hear you. But I'm not really thinking about money. I'm just thinking about where my heart is. I love the NBA. I love playing basketball every day for a living."
