Pat Riley Reveals Very Telling, Unexpected Statement About One Of His Own Players



It’s been well documented that Chris Bosh had to miss the second half of the 2015-16 season for the second year in a row due to complications with blood clots. At the time he went down, he was leading the Miami Heat in scoring with 19.1 points per game and was having an All-Star caliber season.

Though Miami made it all the way to Game 7 of the second round in the NBA playoffs, there’s no telling how far they could’ve gone with Bosh on the court. Now that Miami’s season is over, President and GM of the team, Pat Riley, spoke out about what Bosh means to the organization:

“We, all of us, it’s not just the Heat but the doctors and also Chris, are looking to proceed forward to find a way to get him back on the court. I think that’s all we can say right now. We are very encouraged by trying to find a way over the next two or three months to find a protocol and a program that will get him back playing. That’s always been our objective and we’re in this together, so right now that’s where we are. It’s an X-factor when it comes to everything we plan on doing this summer, but I think first things first is to sidle up alongside Chris Bosh and see where we can go right to the end with this.”

Essentially, Riley called Bosh’s health the X-factor for the Heat. It makes sense, too. You simply don’t know what you’ll get from Bosh in the future due to health complications, but if he can remain healthy now and moving forward, the Heat will benefit greatly. Hopefully, for Bosh, the Heat and the fans, that will prove to be the case.
