Chris Bosh on returning to Toronto: ‘I’m not stressed’

“I’m not stressed,” Bosh said in Indianapolis on Tuesday. “At the end of the day, it’s a game (and) when I get out there, that’s going to take over. I don’t stress about too many things. It is what it is and whatever will be, will be.”

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Why would Chris Bosh be stressed about returning to Toronto, his former home for seven seasons?

Yes, Raptor-nation is hostile. Yes, they hold grudges for years, sometimes decades against superstars who leave under less than ideal circumstances.

 
And yes, Bosh left the Raptors to sign with the Miami Heat as a free agent last July.

The masses will be ready with pitch forks and fire Wednesday when Bosh returns to Toronto for the first time since bolting The Great White North. (Just ask Vince Carter about the chilly reception he received.)

This, however, shouldn’t bother Bosh. Leaving was the right decision.

His Heat are contenders. They will be for years, too. Instead of passing out of double-teams to Candice Parker’s brother and Hoffa Araujo, Bosh is hitting superstars like LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.

So let the Toronto boo-birds have their day. Bosh is having the last laugh.
