Welcome to Franco back tonight at seven game I'm Gianna Franca and am manic again yankees and red edge I guess is that Tosh a call from black sports online she covers the Miami Heat amongst other things the NBA for short. And it's been crazy it's Russia. First right advocates and ask you a little bit and hit it has been I know associate years with the lawyers it's been. On fire but we ask you a little bit about Chris Bosh right out of the gates at thirteen years only. Okay eleven time all star two time champion and obviously his illness did sidelined him the last few years. With Miami and now he's been officially waits a DC we're gonna see him play again in the lead or. Tedious medical issues are going to force him to retire. Prior I think you know I don't think our. Team doctor is gonna give him. The democratic race for me. And you know and as much as it does not regret and apparently they're great people like Egypt. She at all. Let it be activity about it helps protect kids you know am I mean. They are more at. You Al you look back. At looked pretty good. That Mickey though it best interest to not play that by an. We're trying it's equally keen are. Anything like that you see went one they partly eaten about our contracts. Are. Short and I. I'll they're good eventually retired charity nobody everywhere at the ever again. At some and I expect they're gonna happen. A ceremony at that point. Where Crittenton will be there are so. It will there it should be we're really trapped in trying to do what in his best interest and I L. A lot of people. Optic truck rally because the what happened at mount Alito. Play it really they would try to shorthand Chris that it would it's just good at bat and. I can imagine that it's it's more like out of almost protect the player from himself at this point to with. With Miami and everything that's going on there now when you look back on his career what he say about Chris Bosh is tree in Miami what he actually meant to the city. You know don't give Chris box enough credit for what he did and back because it's. You had Rodney. And lately the RU I my. End my needy because it hello your commitment to come out here called degree count didn't get any more iconic and that. How are we have LeBron DG. Chris actually Ali in the shadow but on its box and get that out and kick out it's Ray Allen. That bet is they'll credit cards have won eight notes to. In its of our time recruit by the instrument that eats. Guess. I think people like sacred spot was adequate but actually important that he grant that. Without him. So let's suck free agency anti chat it's been a frenzy everything's been happening so fast it's kind of been on fire which has been really fun to sort of pay attention to and cover. Of course everyone is moving west stars like Jimmy Butler Paul George Chris Paul to the rockets. Miami resigning Dion Waiters that you guys missed out on Gordon Hayward a what's the feel from Miami do they need to do more. You know. They need to do works that they. My duke and who. And elegantly he. I didn't feel I didn't have a bit at court he would ever gonna I actually the Celtics. Even. Old coat right. She Horry. And the IR. A lot of people have a way that he while the Arctic where the number one team east saying that any strategic intent either. And a lot of people that they would give the cat. Work correctly that might opt query I'd get hurt. I don't know what could that happen. But I think he going to topics would probably give a better chance of going to a final. And going to be you know let's say. No matter how close he got there. We we talk about we started out he didn't eat we ended it great play in the heat have now. Yet leader to separate kind of speak out for the seat and they're pretty much solidified that. So I went. And I think he would want to go to that team that would be proper. Eat and eat out and it. You know even with him at it and would did not happen. I asked you as somebody who covers the east and you spend obviously so much time with Miami. Was so many players heading out west it's almost lopsided when it comes to. How many how many calls are coming out west right now do you think a leak should consider reshuffling the playoff system. And maybe it was like the best sixteen teens said doing the whole east course west. I've been me Edgar Edgar and he needs to go to get it will redo our I don't know. LeBron if you were to go to lakers. A a that. Okie. Too happy. The cool and popular going to hear it like beach wrote back that happened. Pretty bad at the end of that day is why the it like you bet that the I hated I can't. Let that you don't. The ticket that seem to get up and bit the eccentric apple back. They probably. Play out here because they can go back in the day. You know it is at it like back. And that we consider it be that may be able this year. That meet the occasion to meet and get where he has got it it's. A it became what you can. Grade I mean the lawyers and what they're doing they've completely changed the landscape of the league. And when you kind of see everything that's been happening in and free agency and teams just sort of in a sense they're panicky ME do you get that as well as I mean. A special teams in the east it's like I mean they they have it be just don't compare to what's happening in the west right now. No they don't and not the end of the day. With the award the top of each but why don't I thought this team and an eight. I. And the match to thank you say no I I but you know with more important and attacked the killer. He'd want he want that they eat and he's willing to act like an hour. And back up. And you get back regret it because he's happy drink and eat act now. But. On that teens are kept taking less money so that our eight. They don't agree pick. The book. Green light in Africa by Everett that he. It. He got in the gay or. The way. They kept. The key players and they add to. That effort that would mean. Great agents on the part. About. Want them from the here that want to honor the crap. Really good at and T Mac and I. Could be or. It yet another. Really peaked later years. The need to be. While my other thing is what's been interesting about the whole idea talking about Kevin Durant taking less money it seems like the media has taken kind of a negative tone on it. On the idea of him taking less mighty keep this team together. Why shouldn't negative vibe when it comes to something that in the past people or praise it. Well because. Our tech team that classes. Potentially given the warriors a record Germany. In the graphic and the here he left that ago oh with a weary team and act or act like people like a little you know it's not. They're gonna get that out for. The only way you know people like Charles Barkley naked talk on the act they want European unity Turkey have hearings. Delegate. That just off of your mind and your match you know he does it for sure. Went to present at bay. And which makes her great great great like EL fire and and stuff to watch and Twitter and social media opposed speed at so I am I how Bob Black sports on minds at the stories you guys are having. A little bit you know it's there's seems to be more of or kind of morbid. Like the forefront of some entertainment news on black sports on line is this something you guys are doing on her prince or what's the what's the what's kind of driving range. I'll point trying to intriguing. Entertainment and in the world where it. By again he'd be Ali attic. I expect in Bartlett I. And it should not see like. People like Craig actually and Beatty meet. Thank you can't help but talk about that because they'd been you know you'd cracked are actually occurred. On page so. When when you. And let our.
