“Thank you Miami” letter from Chris Bosh

“Thank you Miami” letter from Chris Bosh

Miami saw Bosh as a power forward, Bosh saw Miami as an education. Chris Bosh, former power forward of the Miami Heat, thanked Miami for giving him so many rich experiences outside of the basketball world. The letter published in his web site, chrisbosh.com, gives the team and Chris the closure they both deserve. Wow, what a ride! I’ve been reflecting on my time in this great city and want to thank you for being a constant during a period of change in my life.

Today’s critics doubt him, because they lack his visionary genius. The Washington Post writes in an article titled “Otto Porter is...
