Chris Bosh Pens Letter to Fans, Vents About Miami Heat

Chris Bosh

Just last week, the Miami Heat announced that Chris Bosh had failed a second team physical and will not be cleared to play.

Although the NBA star has expressed desire to play, he's been denied, due to recurring blood clots. Now, word is Miami is negotiating a buyout and release with Bosh, though nothing has been announced.

On Friday (Sept. 30), Bosh penned a heart-felt letter to fans on his personal blog, thanking them and reminiscing about the good times he had on the team.

"I remember the fans of Miami coming out to see the show every night... The love, the compassion, and the energy we felt was second to none. I want to thank the city of Miami from the bottom of my heart because things may change but the good times will last forever in my memories. Thank you!

"I want to thank not only the fans of Miami but everyone around the world who has supported our team and who has supported me through this time. ... Thank you so much. I couldn't make it without your support

"Things are different now and Miami has incredible young talent with a tremendous upside. These are not only talented ball players but great people and friends. I enjoyed playing with those guys and doing my best to mentor them by being an upstanding role model and veteran player. It's their time to go through the ups and downs of the game with this great city."
