HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS — That impending feeling of free agent doom looming over our friends in Canada grows stronger by the day.
Cousin Doug (Smith of Toronto Smiths and the Toronto Star) dropped this little morsel in his morning offering.
For those of you that are opposed to link-clicking, here’s Cousin Doug’s brief mention of Chris Bosh being at Game 2 of the Lakers-Jazz series:
Chris Bosh was at the Lakers-Jazz game in L.A. on Tuesday night.
Can only mean one thing, right?
Yep, he’s gone.
Or maybe he’s out there on business. Or vacation. Or some convention of tweeterers or whatever the heck they’re called.
You may remember Bosh sending out a couple tweets last week asking for advice on what he should do in free agency this summer. Maybe he was just trying to get some advice from Kobe Bryant or Ron Artest, who made a similar appearance in LA around this time a year ago. We all know how that turned out.
Of course, this visit by Bosh could simply be the case of a well-known basketball fan visiting with some of his friends …
Listen, we’re not in the business of speculating around here (at least not until free agency cooks up), but if we were, the idea of Bosh playing with the Lakers is frightening … for the rest of the league.
The state of the Toronto Raptors free agency situation has been discussed over and over, by everyone from Bosh to Raptors GM Bryan Colangelo (below), so it’s not like any speculation is brand new.
But every move Bosh makes from now until he has a new contract is headline news.
