NBA Rumors: Chris Bosh Willing To Take Pay Cut To Remain in Miami?


NBA Rumors

While the Miami Heat are in a midst of reaching their fourth-straight NBA Finals, it’s only human nature to ask whether or not this train is going to continue past this season. I mean, it’s only human to look ahead when you have a good thing going, right? We all tend to do it.

So let’s do that with the Miami Heat; we’ve pretty much been doing that quietly with LeBron James, anyways. But we haven’t really talked about Chris Bosh‘s future in Miami — and whether or not there is one.

Bosh went on the Dan Le Batard Show on Tuesday, and was asked that very question. He gave an…interesting answer — to say the least. If nothing else, it’s going to be a thought-provoking one.

Dan Le Batard: Chris Bosh is going to take a discounted rate to stay in Miami?

Chris Bosh: If that’s what it takes.

DLB: Si?

CB: Si.

DLB: You’re going to be here, right?

CB: Yea, I mean. I don’t want to go anywhere. I like it here. It’s Miami, everyone wants to come here.

So now that the Heat have that out of the way, will Dwyane Wade take a discount as well? If so, this Heat dynasty (if it was even one) isn’t over yet. Even if Shane Battier and Ray Allen call it quits after this year, they’ll be able to rebuild this team around LeBron (assuming he opts-in or re-signs) and Bosh.

Then again, Bosh could’ve just said that for the sake of the rest of this season. It wouldn’t surprise be at all to see him bolt for money, either.

It would’ve been interesting to see what he would’ve said after struggling through games 1-3.
