Soon to be free agent Chris Bosh is asking fans where he should go...and loving it
Raptors forward Chris Bosh is getting ready to get paid big time through free agency. He will be free to sign anywhere this offseason and there will be plenty of teams lined up to go after him. The Toronto Raptors don't have any pieces to entice him to stay, so chances are he will leave. He recently showed that he is prepared to go by posing a question to his Twitter followers.
That sparked quite a controversy and made more people believe his time in Toronto is effectively over. If that wasn't enough, Bosh just made some more changes on Twitter. Gone is his bio that says he is the Raptors captain and his location has changed from "Toronto" to "Everywhere." Bosh was even seen in the stands at the Lakers-Jazz playoff series, sparking the L.A. media to wonder if he will end up in purple and gold (Ron Artest attended a Lakers playoff game last year and now is a Laker).
It is doubtful that Bosh will become a Laker but it is increasingly more obvious he will be leaving Toronto for greener pastures. The Miami Heat or Chicago Bulls could be his next destination.
Meanwhile, Bosh wants to make sure people don't forget about him while the NBA Playoffs is going on. He wants to have his choice of where to go so he is trying to stay relevant. The Twitter thing is a bit immature and disappointing for the fans who have followed him in Toronto. At least they don't have to hold onto false hope that their star is staying. In the meantime, Bosh is enjoying all the attention.
