Chris Bosh says he and LeBron James will be on the Miami Heat next season


While the Miami Heat prepare to officially begin their run at the rare three-peat, it’s critical that they eliminate any and all distractions that may take place between now and June. Thus, Chris Bosh took the first step in doing that.

When asked if he and LeBron James would be members of the Miami Heat next season, Bosh gave perhaps the most certain answer that he could’ve given. It was as if he was just trying to make that question disappear from now on.

[Bleacher Report]

Rather than conduct a conventional interview, LeBatard—the long-time Miami Herald columnist—and co-host Jon “Stugotz” Weiner played two games with the Miami Heat forward/center, first asking him to “fill in the blank” and then asking him to answer “true or false.” …

LeBatard asked whether Bosh—who can opt out of his contract after this season—will be in Miami next year.

“True,” Bosh answered.

“And so will LeBron …” LeBatard continued.

“True,” Bosh replied.

Both Bosh and James are expected to opt-out of their current deals after this season, and expected to entertain free agency. However, there hasn’t been much buzz around the duo, mostly due to the fact that most believe that they’ll likely re-sign with the Heat.

Though, if the Heat fail to complete the three-peat, nothing is off the table — or so it seems. And based on their recent struggles, perhaps a divorce is indeed in the near future for The Big Three.

After all, they did admit to an “elephant in the room”. Granted, they said that they’re beyond it but the fact that they admitted that there was a problem should warrant some attention.
