PLAYERS: Chris Bosh
TEAMS: Miami Heat

Chris Bosh says it still feels strange not to be playing basketball. And the idea of not playing any this season is simply too bizarre for the Miami Heat forward to fathom. Bosh says he's taking a ''wait and see what happens'' approach for now to the labor divide that threatens the NBA season. He's still working out, still staying sharp and hopeful that the Heat get a chance to play again soon. He said Tuesday night he will not consider playing overseas until all hope of having any season is gone. And if USA Basketball asks, Bosh reaffirms that he's more than willing to be part of the team heading to the London Olympics next summer. He just wants to play before then.

Chris Bosh Not Bothered By Shaquille O’Neal’s Criticism

Create-a-Caption: ‘Peace out, NBA’

Oh, sure, Chris Bosh. You tell the hardworking typewriter-hammerer from the local fishwrap international wire service that you're taking a "wait and see" approach to playing overseas while the NBA lockout continues, but any fool with eyes at Tuesday night's Rutgers/Miami game could see you clearly waving two-fingers-and-a-space to the United States and getting ready...

Bosh Says Big Three May Have Caused Lockout

Chris Bosh is as disappointed as anyone that the NBA season has not started yet due to the ongoing lockout, but he hinted this week that he may be at least partly responsible for the owner-instigated lockout.

First real tests of new labor deal will be Howard, Paul, Williams

Chris Bosh is right. Part of what is fueling this hardline stance by owners is about Miami and New York. This is what I mean. What LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Carmelo Anthony did last year shook small market owners to their core. Those guys pay the bills for owners, yet franchise cornerstones moved on…

Chris Bosh possibly overestimates his role in the NBA lockout

The jokes about Chris Bosh, I'm sorry, but he makes them so simple to make. Even if they're not all that funny. The idea that Chris Bosh -- who if you've forgotten, enjoyed the best statistical offensive season of any power forward in the NBA during 2009-10 -- continues to lump himself in with giants like LeBron James and Dwyane Wade is the ha-ha bit. Then there's...

Chris Bosh On Shaq Attack: “I Don’t Care About That Stuff”

Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh is brushing off harsh criticism in Shaquille O'Neal's new book, “Shaq Uncut: My Story.” O’Neal says Bosh has achieved stardom without earning it, is more about numbers than winning, and “is not an elite player.” “I know the thing is entertainment,” Bosh told the Sun-Sentinel. “How are you going to get people to buy your book...

Poll: Where does blame rest in NBA stalemate?

No, Monday was not a good day for the NBA or those with visions of better tomorrows in 2011-12 for the Heat’s Big Three of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. No matter the outcome of the lockout, in what now has become a legal process, any chance of a representative schedule has been lost. Fifty games? Maybe. If any at all. So where does the blame rest?
