Big man Chris Bosh plans to officially announce his retire on March 26, when the Miami Heat will retire his jersey.
Bosh spoke with Bill Simmons of The Ringer during his podcast.
Bosh is inactive since the season 2015-2016.
Per hoopsrumors, Discussing his jersey retirement ceremony in Miami on March 26, Bosh acknowledged that he’ll likely get emotional at that event since he knows “that part of my life is over.”
“That has been a tough thing to deal with, but I’m good,” Bosh said, adding that he was “still trying pretty adamantly” to get back into the NBA last year, particularly as he saw the success that stretch fives were having around the league. However, he’s no longer continuing those efforts.
“That time has passed,” Bosh said. “I’ve made the decision not to pursue it anymore.”
