Chris Bosh has finally revealed how LeBron James told him he was leaving Miami back in 2015.

During an appearance on the “All the Smoke” podcast with Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson, Bosh says that LeBron told him via text that he was breaking up the big 3 and going back to Cleveland which rubbed him the wrong way.

“I thought he was BSing, and then about 10 minutes later it’s everywhere. I understand it. I get it. At the time, I didn’t understand it. At the time, in my mind, I was ready to put the team back together because we had just lost. So we wanted to put something back together so we could win, and it really didn’t go like that.

It took months for Bosh to get over LeBron leaving Miami but eventually, the two talked face to face and squashed whatever tension there was.

I took offense to it, to be honest with you, at first. I was only thinking of how I felt about it. Me and Bron talked about it, but I’m a competitor, and to be honest with you, s—, when you back to the locker room and LeBron ain’t in that chair, and then everyone’s looking at you for those 25 points, and looking at D for that 25 points, damn man.

But yeah I was upset, it took some time to get over it, it took months to get over it, we had to be in the same place to talk about it, nothing deep but just talk.
