Free agent Chris Bosh jokes about a reunion with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade on the Lakers team as he seeks an NBA position.

Free agent Chris Bosh demonstrated suggestive humor late Thursday towards joining LeBron James and signing with the Los Angeles Lakers.

"That would be the Laker Show plus the Old-Man Show," Bosh told Yahoo Sports' Ben Rohrbach when asked about the possibility he and fellow free agent Dwyane Wade would join the Purple and Gold.
Bosh, who has not played since 2016 because of blood clots, added he is maintaining hope that a team will take interest in the next season..

"Obviously, if it doesn't happen by February, I'm not stupid, but yeah, I'm still looking forward to that," he told Rohrbach. "I'm still trying to overcome that hump and trying to get something going. I'm looking forward to the challenge. I know I can still play some ball and be a 3-and-D guy for somebody out there."

The subsequent statement echoed one Bosh made to ESPN's Jackie MacMullan in early March. "I'm going to give [playing] one more shot," he says. "That's all it isa shot.

"I'm at a space in my life where I see gifts I've been given, and if it ends, it's been a helluva ride. I did more than I'd ever think I'd do. The next [goal] was longevity, 25,000 points, and 15,000 rebounds, but that's not going to happen. I've accepted that."

Notably, Bosh has been a free agent ever since he was waived by the Miami Heat in July 2017. "He was Wade's teammate for six seasons and James' for fourall in Miami," notes Bleachers Report
