Kind of confirming what we already knew, but it looks like Chris Bosh's career is over for medical reasons:

Good career. 11x all star, 2x champ and gold medal. Maybe he can play overseas or something.

Well i hope he doesn't play overseas, especially in some league that may not have his best interests at heart.

It's a shame. He had to retire in his prime. But he's a young guy with great life ahead of him, as long as he doesn't take bad risks.

He has 50 million net worth, he seriously needs to stop ANY notion of playing and take care of his health for the long run.

A hall of fame player and one of the good guys in professional sports.

He's barely a HOFer to me. I hate the basketball HOF process...

At his best as a #1, he was never Kevin Garnett. He was good but was never great as a #1...

As the third wheel in Miami, he was good and more suited to that role, but besides a moment here or there, he was a disappearing act in the postseason. He was basically Kevin Love. Is that enough to be a Famer?

Bosh's greatest achievement was that he made the right choice in joining the Heat and got two rings out of it. He seemed to be matured and playing the best ball of his career post-Lebron, but in those two years he only played 59% of the games available. Not his fault, but not a large enough sampling to solidify a Hall of Fame career...

Anyway, we all know he'll get in. The BHOF is notorious for its very inviting candidacy. I hope Bosh gets well and is able to live a long life outside of the NBA...

Good. As a Chris Bosh fan, I never want to see him on the basketball court again. It's going to sound strange, but we never really got to see the player he could have been. His last season in Toronto, he averaged 25/11 with the third highest PER in the league. One could argue that he was beginning to peak, and then sublimated himself in Miami. In those Heat finals, he was Lebron's best teammate, not Wade.

His neck is way too long to play
