Chris Bosh

With the awful NBA lockout continuing to destroy humanity, players are likely to start gathering together with friends or teammates to train and keep each other on top of their games. It makes sense for players, sitting around bored, to round teammates up and make up for what they may miss if NBA preseason gets partially or fully wiped out.

Here’s the Associated Press reporting on Chris Bosh and the Miami Heat:

Chris Bosh enjoyed just about every second of his jampacked offseason.

Nonetheless, he’s ready to go back to work.

Bosh said Saturday that he expects the Miami Heat to reconvene sometime soon, even though the NBA lockout has entered its third month with no apparent ending in sight. This would ordinarily be the time of year where most players start ramping up workouts anyway, and Bosh said he will be ready whether training camps begin on time or not.

“We’re going to make some plans. We’re going to plan to do something,” Bosh said in a telephone interview from Los Angeles. “I think just getting around each other, I think it’s important as far as team-building is concerned and just getting something going. We’re pretty much still in the process of doing that.”

I would think that by late September, captains/leaders of most NBA teams should step up and make this happen.
