"Uh, What Is A Baller?"

What is a baller? Little Jackson Bosh cannot tell you! The youngster was sitting beside his father, Chris, Bosh during a recent basketball game.

Chris was discussing his status as an NBA player with Rebecca Haarlow of MSG Networks when he decided to introduce his son to the camera. “I have to remind people that I’m not retired,” Chris said of his career. “I haven’t made up my mind yet. Basketball is still on my heart and my mind. And, you know, that’s one of the main things I’m trying to get back to. I always have to tell people that I’m still going.”


Bosh turned the spotlight on his son who greeted Haarlow with a smile. The youngster was immediately stumped after Rebecca asked him if he would one day be a baller like his dad. “Uh, what is a baller,” little Jackson asked. Chris Bosh responded to his son’s inquiry by telling him to just answer in the affirmative. “Okay,” Jackson said after getting a bit of coaching from his father.

It was just last year that Chris Bosh wrote a heartfelt letter that many took as an indication of his retirement. “Wow, what a ride,” Chris said in his blog post. “I’ve learned how to appreciate the game of basketball and all the things I’ve experienced even more now,” he explained. “People will always see the trophies and banners and think that’s the whole story. But it’s only a piece, only a moment in time.”

Chris and Adrienne Bosh are the proud parents of four children. Chris also has a daughter named Trinity from a previous relationship. Stay tuned for more celebrity family news!
