Though he hasn't played in an NBA game in two years due to a serious medical condition that involves blood clots, Chris Bosh still refuses to call it quits. He's been adamant about continuing his career on the court since his first diagnosis back in February 2015.
While the decision for Bosh to play ultimately relies upon the opinions of medical professionals, on Thursday the 11-time All-Star went on First Take and said he thinks he could help an NBA team right now. Bosh's words on the matter came after Stephen A. Smith asked him what his status was, and in addition to saying very clearly, "I'm not done yet," he also joked about how he has to get in on this current era of jacking up threes and playing no defense.
"I’ve been in the gym, I can still play basketball," he said. "No, I’m not done yet. Yeah, I’m trying to come back. Man, I see all these guys shooting threes and not playing defense, man, I gotta get some of it. Now it’s like, you shoot threes and you can whiff on a screen and roll and it’s all good. So I think I can do that."
He also said he's not closing the door on playing at some point this season if someone in the playoff hunt were to reach out. It's unclear how serious he is about actually getting back on the court that quickly, but we would lean towards it being more than 50 percent serious.

Hmmm. Highly unlikely, but interesting nonetheless.
