You called all these GMs, I’m sure you called the league, the Players Association—I’ve been told there’s almost no hope [for Chris Bosh to continue his playing career]. Jackie MacMullan: I’ve been told there’s no hope, and it’s because the situation is too dangerous, too scary. […] From what I’ve been told, and of course, the records are sealed because of HIPAA laws and because all of his medical records from the Heat have not been seen by other NBA teams, at least that I’m aware of, I should say that, because perhaps someone asked and the Heat obliged, I’m not sure. I didn’t get that sense but I suppose it’s possible. But we don’t really know what else is involved with this. And I get the sense, from talking to GMs around the league, that there’s other things in play here.

Bill Simmons: There’s no chance you play again, right? Chris Bosh: Nah, there’s a chance. BS: There’s a chance? Really? What chain of events would have to happen? CB: Well, I would talk to a team. Which, I’ve talked to guys. And their doctors—because like I said, there hasn’t been a plan. But if a team creates that plan, we can go from there. But we’ve explored those things and it’s a lot of work. We don’t have the resources to do the research and everything. But if it’s important enough to a team to devise that plan and talk on the phone to doctors, insurance and all those things, then yeah, we can talk about it.
Bill Simmons: Something happened to LeBron James in that Dallas series, and it was like, ‘Wow, has he been broken by basketball fans?’ Chris Bosh: Yeah, I mean he had moments. I remember we were shooting [around] one time… and [LeBron] was there too, so I was watching him shoot, and he seemed like something was on his mind. And I said, ‘Hey man, look: We’ve got two games at home to win an NBA championship. We’re good.’ And he said, ‘Yeah, you’re right but everybody wants me to fail.’ And I felt the same way, so we had a conversation and talked deeper. It was just like, tough to beat. Plus, nobody got it like he got it.
The Miami Heat shut down their five-time All-Star, and after exhaustive testing and treatment, announced in September 2016 that Bosh had failed his physical. Miami’s front office, concerned for their player’s future as a father and a husband, not a basketball forward, told him they could no longer risk putting him on the court. Just like that, it was over. No more championship trophies to hoist, no more All-Star teams to make, no more gold medals or endorsements or private jet excursions with the guys. Bosh retreated home to his wife, Adrienne, and their four small children, plunked himself on his leather sofa and asked aloud, “What the hell just happened?” “It’s pretty much like cruising along, going 150 miles an hour in your Porsche — and then you fall into a hole,” Bosh says.
