No ‘different': Bosh treated Toronto like Carter, McGrady, and Stoudamire
Bosh, who left for the Heat earlier this month, responded to allegations made by Colangelo on Toronto radio station FAN 590 that claimed the All-Star was "checked out" late last season and chose not to play some of the Raptors’ final games.
"I play this game as hard as I can every time I step on the court," Bosh said. "On the back of my jersey it says ‘Bosh’ … The Boshes are hard workers. We have a lot of pride in what we do, in our jobs and in life."
"Everybody thinks, ‘Oh, he was gone as soon as the season was over,’ " he said. "It was the hardest decision I ever had to make. As different as another country is, it was still home for me. I had been there for seven years."
