Extremely curious and baffling is the timing that Miami Heat alleged star Chris Bosh chose to announce that he is selling his suburban Miami home. His highly-touted, well compensated Heat team is down 2 games to 1 in the NBA Finals after getting steamrolled by the San Antonio Spurs, 113-76. Worse, not a single member of the Heat team — not even LeBron James nor Dwyane Wade — have scored 20 points in any of the Finals games, a shocking happenstance that hasn’t occurred in over 40 years.
Bosh’s $12.5 million, 12,000-square-foot, 7-bedroom home South Beach home is actually on North Bay Road of La Gorce Island.
Bosh, who’s $17 million annual salary has been increasingly called into question because of his lackluster, unreliable offense as well as a lack of rebounding and void of any rim protection whatsoever, said that he wants to finish his career in Miami. Strange way of showing it.
Bosh stressed the decision was made with his family in mind, with his wife, Adrienne, expecting the couple’s second child, and not because of concerns about the direction of his playing career.
“Things change,” he said before the Heat practiced at the AT&T Center in preparation for Thursday’s Game 4 of the NBA Finals, with the Heat down 2-1 in the best-of-seven series. “It’s looking to see if another spot is open.”
Of course, in April Bosh’s home was burglarized of more than a quarter million dollars in jewelry and momentos and the thought of his wife at home alone with a young child and a soon-to-be newborn is a source of concern.
