LEBRON James expressed his support for Chris Bosh in his former Miami teammate’s attempt to return to the court while at the same time admitted his astonishment to the Heat’s treatment of the remaining member of the ‘Big 3.’
“I stand behind my brother Chris,” James told Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel on Tuesday (Wednesday, Manila time). “The most important thing is his health. Whatever decision he wants to do, I’m all for it. I support him in every way, shape and facet. It’s a difficult situation for him."
Recurring blood-clot issues have prevented Bosh from joining the team’s training camp. Miami Heat President Pat Riley has gone on record saying the team isn’t working towards Bosh’s return.
James said he was shocked on how the Heat has decided Bosh’s career was over despite the 6-11 forward’s attempts of a comeback.
“I was pretty surprised to hear that the team was just done with him, for them to come out and say that. But it’s not like I’ve been there to know exactly what’s gone on. I’ve only seen it from the exterior,” he said.
“I wish the best for him, he has my support,” added James who returned to the Cleveland Cavaliers three seasons ago after helping the Heat to four NBA finals appearances and two NBA titles. Fellow Big 3 member Dwyane Wade joined the Chicago Bulls in the offseason.
