Chris Bosh pens thank you letter to Miami Heat fans

NASSAU, BAHAMAS -- Chris Bosh posted a new blog on his website Friday thanking the city of Miami and Heat fans for their support.

Chris BoshIn the post, it sounds almost as if the 11-time All-Star is saying good-bye to the franchise once and for all. On Monday, team president Pat Riley said Bosh's career with the Heat was probably over in light of his recent failed physical and ongoing bout with blood clots over the last 21 months.

"It’s funny how things change," Bosh wrote. "All I have right now associated with basketball are my friends and memories. And I’m so thankful for those things.

"I remember just a few years ago when the Big 3 were together and we were having a ball playing the game we love with some of the most professional, talented guys the NBA has ever seen.

"I remember the fans of Miami coming out to see the show every night. The love, the compassion and the energy we felt was second to none. I want to thank the city of Miami from the bottom of my heart because things may change but the good times will last forever in my memories. Thank you!

"Things are different now and Miami has incredible young talent with a tremendous upside. These are not only talented ball players but great people and friends. I enjoyed playing with those guys and doing my best to mentor them by being an upstanding role model and veteran player. It’s their time to go through the ups and downs of the game with this great city.

"I want to thank not only the fans of Miami but everyone around the world who has supported our team and who has supported me through this time. I see you posting with #BoshRebuilt on social media every day and I receive the love that you give me. Thank you so much. I couldn’t make it without your support.

"I’m just opening myself up and letting you into my life a little bit, which isn’t easy for me, but putting yourself out there is never easy. I hope you guys have enjoyed Episodes 1 through 4 of #BoshRebuilt, available anytime on www.Uninterrupted.com.

"Thank you for taking in this project of mine and making it all well worth it."
