Chris Bosh Downplays Sale of Miami House

by June 13, 2013

Once the media got wind of Chris Bosh selling his house in Miami, they tried to link it to his ongoing postseason struggles. The Heat’s star forward says he has no intention of playing anywhere but South Beach. Per the Sun-Sentinel: “Following the Miami Heat’s Wednesday practice at the AT&T Center, center Chris Bosh spoke of a possible change of address in South Florida. Hours later, his wife took to Twitter saying the couple wasn’t going anywhere. Earlier, Bosh said he had decided to put his 12,368-square-foot home on North Bay Road on the market, stressing the decision was made with his family in mind, with his wife, Adrienne, expecting the couple’s second child, and not because of concerns about the direction of his playing career. ‘Things change,’ he said before the Heat practiced in preparation for Thursday’s Game 4 of the NBA Finals, with the Heat down 2-1 in the best-of-seven series. ‘It’s looking to see if another spot is open.’ But on Twitter, Adrienne Bosh posted, ‘Our house is def not listed. We are in the middle of building a new nursery.’ […] The All-Star center stressed earlier Wednesday that a potential relocation would be a family decision. He has the right to opt out of his Heat contract following next season, and also could be put into play on the trade market because of the Heat’s tenuous position against the NBA’s onerous luxury tax on high team payrolls. But he brushed off any impending change of addresses as a basketball-related move. ‘I’m in Miami for the rest of my career,’ he said. ‘I plan to be there. I plan to retire there. I plan to win hopefully a lot more championships there. So that’s where home is.'”
