Ten Reasons Miami Still Loves Chris Bosh

Normally, being told that Chris Bosh would miss the rest of a season would be tough enough for Heat fans to stomach but when we all heard earlier this week exactly why he would be done playing, it completely broke our hearts. What at first seemed like a precautionary trip to the hospital to check out some soreness, turned into a frightening diagnosis nobody expected. This was no cracked-rib or pulled abdomen muscle — Bosh had developed blood clots in his lungs.

Luckily, one of the perks of being an NBA player is that you're constantly surrounded by people looking after your health. Bosh's issue was caught quickly, and after clutch-treatment, reports are he is to be close to being released from the hospital. What has been a tough time for Bosh, his family, and his fans, could have been a lot worse. Now that it seems like everything is under control health-wise with Chris Bosh, we can all breath a sigh of relief knowing that one of Miami's favorite sports personalities people ever, should be OK.

Consider this our get-well card, Bosh.
