There are players who carry that of being a coach in the genetic code. Normally a professional shows when he has talents and intention to sit on the bench once his career is over. In the current NBA we see cases like Jason Kidd or Steve Nash, who barely hung up their boots and poked their heads out of the coaching staff of a franchise. It is not the case of Chris Bosh, who since the retirement to which his health problems forced him has preferred to distance himself from the game. It has taken five years since his goodbye for the future Hall of Fame member to admit that he leaves the door open to that world. “One day, when I really have time, I will seriously consider that sort of thing. When the time is right. “
What deprives Bosh of the time he mentions are his five children, who range in age from five to twelve. “I don’t want to close doors. But right now I’m totally focused on being a parent and raising my kids. ” When mentioning the possibility of training one day, the former Miami Heat could not help but laugh remembering Udonis Haslem telling him that he did not paint anything as a coach after his career. The veteran center has long been more of a mentor than a player, and it would be weird not to see him in this kind of role.
Anyway, Bosh already has his own quintet which he directs with his wife Adrienne. In addition, he himself says that he has already gone through processes similar to being a technician writing his book Letters to a Young Athlete, in which he provides guidelines to face the first stages of professional sports life and offer advice to those who still see him from afar. “Being able to convey my ideas and, even more important, help young athletes or whoever. That is what I am trying to achieve right now ” declares General money Sun-Sentinel. “I want to motivate all present and future generations.”
