Chris Bosh has chosen to skip the Olympics due to the lingering effects of his abdominal issue during the NBA playoffs. The playoff run took everything out of him and he delivered when it counted.
Chris said the following about the run:
… that was everything to me. It was just erasing all those memories, getting that bad taste out of my mouth. I live with that every time I walk down the hall. I forgot cameras were there last year, but whatever.
But I think it was good for me in the long run because I could watch every single day what we had to go through and what I had to go through. So any time that I was thinking about just taking a play off or taking some time off or not working that day, doing the easy thing, I thought about that moment.
