Chris Bosh Explains Why He Turned Down Houston


Before Chris Bosh re-signed with the Miami Heat it was widely expected that he would join the Houston Rockets if LeBron James left Miami. When Bosh decided to re-sign with the Heat it initially seemed financially driven as the Heat were offering more than the Rockets. After an exclusive interview ESPN, Bosh shared the reason behind his decision.

According to Tom Haberstroth’s ESPN article on the interview, Bosh believes the Heat have something the Rockets simply couldn’t offer, the option to be number one.

“I think sometimes you miss it,” Bosh said. “You wonder if you can still do it and step up to the challenge. I haven’t had to be that guy. I played with the best player in the world. I didn’t have to be the alpha. But now I get to see if I have it in me and not many people are going to believe I have what’s necessary. But that’s what makes it exciting.

This was a great personal decision for Chris Bosh. As much as I would have liked to see him in a Rockets uniform I am glad to see there are still players in the NBA who want to win without making “super teams”. Early on in this free agency I was getting worried that all the top players would eventually take pay cuts to play with each other, as Bosh had hinted he was willing to do.

      No need for the foul language; grow up and act like an adult.

  • Marvin

    Honestly can’t blame him, but he went to Miami for the money. He’s known as a guy who isn’t the most financially stable guy bc he likes to spend like crazy. I mean, his comments aren’t crazy bc he’s already been the guy in the past for a mediocre Raptors team. He’s a nice player and got the offer of a life time. In no other scenario does Bosh ever get this kind of money. Good for him though, can’t hate the guy for it

    That’s just pure BS. He’s attempting to rationalize. Real reason #1 – Wife wears the pants and calls the shots; Real Reason #2 – $$$$$$; and real reason #3 – He’s a wuss.

      Who’s responsible for a gambler getting outplayed? Almost every single decision of Morey has been a wild gamble or bluff. Once in a while is cool, but almost every time is stupid. You don’t manage a team like you play poker. Actually, the odds are much better at poker if you know what you’re doing.

    It’s going to be a long and painful season.

    Get ready for made-up excuses from Morey, McHale, lapdog media (and fans).

    Real fans hold their teams accountable.

      Bosh says he wishes you well.

    • ForTheLin

      Typical Rockets fan, as we’ve unfortunately had to discover. Maybe they don’t teach sportsmanship in Houston.

    • TJD42

      Keep your childish rant to yourself. You can’t make a point without foul language and name calling. Typical low intelligence in a Teenager.

  • Ken Temporaneous

    No one wants to play for Morey–as you will see down the line.
