    What happens if he has to retire again? Do we get all that cap space back immediately? I wouldn't give him a hefty contract, but I wouldn't mind him coming here instead of Melo, if he can play still.

    If the doc says ok, he'll be better than adding Melo, 1000x...

    For the right price, if he can ball for 15 mins, that's already excellent.

    Someone needs to stop him before he kills himself.

    All fantasy.....

    But imagine if Anthony does end up in Houston when it is all said and done, to play the 4 and the Rockets use their BAE to sign Bosh to man the 5.

    Paul
    Harden
    Ariza
    Anthony
    Bosh

    Gordon/Tucker/Capela/Nene all off the bench with another ring chaser like Diaw or Barbosa

    I don't know that the Rockets would beat GS because the players in GS are so used to playing together.... but it would be close..... and D'Antoni would have a lot of fun offensively with that group....... the starting 5 would all have plus three point range and all could handle the ball.

    You forgot we'd be adding LeBron next year.

    CP3-Harden-LeBron-Melo-Capela
    Wade-Gordon-Tucker-Bosh-Nene

    Not even the most desperate organisation/management would risk it... Imagine the backlash against them if something actually happened to him...

    Chris Bosh's search for that feeling he once had as an NBA star

    _________________________________
    Yet he continues to discuss the possibility of a return next season, provided he can find a willing partner to employ him. Bosh says "a few guys" have reached out to him about playing, but would not name them. Asked how he plans to prove to skeptical franchises that his health would not be at risk if he donned their uniform, Bosh answered, "That's on them.''

    ESPN contacted four general managers to gauge their interest in Bosh. All four said if Bosh was given a clean bill of health, there would be a clamor to sign him. But, as one GM explains, "If he was healthy, he'd be playing for the Miami Heat right now. The fact they determined it was not an option makes me say we're not going there.''

    "The risk is too great,'' says another GM. "We're talking about a life-threatening condition. Who wants to mess with that?"

    The answer, most likely, is no one.
    _________________________________
    Bosh, who turns 34 on March 24, says he trains regularly and still has plenty to offer an NBA team. His condition, he believes, should not hold him back.

    "I'm going to give (playing) one more shot,'' he says. "That's all it is -- a shot.

    "I'm at a space in my life where I see gifts I've been given, and if it ends, it's been a helluva ride. I did more than I'd ever think I'd do. The next (goal) was longevity, 25,000 points (Bosh has 17,189) and 15,000 rebounds (he has 7,592), but that's not going to happen. I've accepted that.''
    _________________________________
    Bosh says he finds it awkward to engage with some of his ex-teammates. They are still in the moment, with the spotlight shining brightly on them, and he is a sobering reminder of how it can all go bad in a heartbeat. Because of that, some of them avoid him.

    "We are so egotistical when we're playing," Bosh says. "We're like, 'This is all about me. They're talking about me on ESPN, I'm making all this money, I'm winning all these games.'

    "Those moments where 20,000 people are watching you, and you hit the game winner? It's an incredible feeling."

    He pauses, wistfully.

    "I would love,'' Bosh says, "to experience that feeling one more time.''
