Chris Bosh on returning to play in the NBA'That time has passed

Chris Bosh said he will officially retire from the National Basketball Association next month, putting an end to a career derailed by health issues.

"That part of my life is over", he said. I could have kept playing. "I've made the decision not to pursue it anymore".

Bosh admitted that part of the reason why he tried so hard to return to the National Basketball Association after the diagnosis derailed his career was because he saw so many players of his skill set succeeding around the league. He had held out hope he could play again.

A Dallas native, the 6-foot-11 Bosh attended Georgia Tech for one season before being drafted by the Toronto Raptors with the No. 4 overall pick of the 2003 NBA Draft.

The 11-time All-Star and two-time National Basketball Association champion last played with the Miami Heat at 31 years old, but blood clots kept him out.

The charge, which was laid by match umpires, will now be dealt with by the match referee, New Zealander Jeff Crowe. Until the proceedings have concluded, the ICC say they will not comment further.

After seven years in Toronto, Bosh signed with the Heat in the summer of 2010 to form the famed "Big 3" alongside LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.

Bosh played his last game in the National Basketball Association on February 9, 2016 against the San Antonio Spurs as a member of the Heat, dropping 18 points and five rebounds in a 119-101 loss.

After increased pressure from the medical staff to sit out the rest of the season, Bosh returned for his initial physical exam the following season, only to fail to be cleared by the team doctors.

Bosh intends to use the Miami Heat's retirement of his jersey on March 26 as a formal retirement ceremony.
