In the summer of 2010, Chris Bosh and LeBron James joined Wade in Miami. The Big Three was formed and they celebrated before even playing a game together. Four consecutive Finals appearances and two championships would follow, but the team had to suffer a loss to the Dallas Mavericks in the NBA Finals in their first season together and address the elephant in the room: Who was going to be the guy on this team. Pat Riley (Miami Heat team president): I had more conversations with the three of them in the first year than I did in the last three years. I would bring them together, we would meet at my office in Miami, we would sit around in the lobby of a hotel, or we would have lunch. We talked about how this whole thing was going to evolve. In the first year, it was hard to broach the question of: Whose team is it? Nobody wanted to have that kind of ego. Chris Bosh (Miami Heat forward, 2010-2016): With Pat, it’s like when Master Yoda talks to you. You’re not going to understand everything he says. I was like, “What the hell is he talking about, dude.” And then, weeks later, or even years later, it hits you.
“The biggest mistake that I made was not to just recommend that we sign Dwyane and Chris to max contracts as soon as LeBron left, and let’s build around them,” Riley said. “What we wanted to do and what I wanted to do was not to use Dwyane, but to use the opportunity to pay him and at the same time bring in another superstar. “We should have just bit the bullet. He was our franchise guy. We had just been to the Finals four years in a row. They had already played the give-back game, Chris, LeBron and Dwyane to keep Mike Miller and to keep Udonis Haslem. So this was the time now to pay both of them. And we paid Chris and we did not pay Dwyane. If we had done that, he would have been here. He would have never left. This would have been his last year [on the contract], his fifth year.”
Former NBA star Chris Bosh refused to pay his driver overtime wages after the basketball player moved to Austin last summer and expanded the man’s duties to include household chores, according to a lawsuit in federal court in Austin. The lawsuit was filed Tuesday by a lawyer for Michael Ray, who followed the Bosh family from California last June when they moved into a nine-bedroom, five-bathroom mansion along the Colorado River in Austin’s Steiner Ranch community.
Wearing a Heat championship ring on both hands, Bosh watched a giant banner bearing his name and No. 1 raised to the rafters of AmericanAirlines Arena on Tuesday night — then delivered an emotional address to the crowd, part of it even in Spanish as a show of respect to the Latin culture of Miami. “My name, my family name up here, that’s something I used to get laughed at for dreaming of,” Bosh said. “So never let anyone tell you that you can’t accomplish your dream. Those four letters on the back of that jersey are my wife’s name, my kids’ name, my father’s name, my grandfather’s name. We’re not just carrying on for another generation. But now, Daddy Jack, we’re up there forever.”
For a time, he and the Heat were estranged. Bosh wanted to keep playing. The Heat didn’t feel his health issues would allow that. Eventually, the sides reached an understanding and then they finally began talking again. Now he’s back in the Heat family, forever. “I feel like I can officially, officially, officially move on,” Bosh said. “It all happened really fast, but we’re here. I’m so happy. And we get to move on into the next life together.”
