Lebron is leaving, but to the surprise of many, Chris Bosh is staying. The Heat are finalizing a new contract with Bosh that will pay him $118 million dollars over the next five years. Pretty much if he remains to the end of the deal he will retire as a member of the Heat. The Rockets thought they had Bosh in their grasp after Lebron announced he was leaving Miami and offered Bosh the max they could which was four years/$88 million dollars.
