The three-time NBA Shooting Stars Champion Chris Bosh has recently severed ties with his basketball team for six fruitful years - Miami Heat. Bosh got recruited in the team franchise back in 2010 and has helped usher the Heat to multiple championships since then.

Dubbed as one of the team's Big Three from 2010-2013, including Dwyane Wade and LeBron James, Bosh shared two NBA championship trophies to the team.

Also one of the strongest power forwards of his generation, Bosh was admitted to a Miami hospital due to a blood clot on one of his lungs after playing in 2015 All-Star Game. He was ruled out for the entire season until his condition improved. And just recently, Bosh suffered from another blood clot, this time on his legs, which prevented him from playing again for the remainder of the 2016 NBA Playoffs.

With his recurring blood clot problems, and failure to pass his physical exam with his team, Heat's president Pat Riley expressed great loss for the 11-time NBA All-Star player. But Riley later on clarified to the press that the team is "not working toward" Bosh's return and continued that the former's career with the team is "probably over."

In a statement with Bleacher Report's Uninterrupted new video, Bosh clarified his career isn't over. "I guess my career in Miami is done," explained Bosh. "But my career's not done. I just did not expect that at all." The ace player also expressed dismay and denies receiving texts from the team franchise before Riley went to public saying the former's career is "over".

Long time Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra also expressed his grief over Bosh's health, "I love Chris Bosh dearly. It was tough to watch Bosh and his family go through this the last couple years.

"Your heart just goes out to him," the coach added.

Bosh is Miami's highest-paid player, with $75.8 million assumed earnings over the next three seasons.
