That is the exact opposite of who Bosh is as a person, and what he actually said about the city he proclaimed he would rep til he died.
His (probably true) statement that Toronto "smelled different" was not a knock on the 6. Bosh probably meant it figuratively, and was simply acknowledging that the vibe was different than an American city. Even the black people in Toronto (mostly Jamaicans) were not kin.
Dude has undoubtably matured.
Comments he made while he was here and the ones he made after the fact don’t change the damage he did during his entitled time in Toronto.
Two face Bosh on playing in Toronto:
behind the scenes: “get me out out here”.
In public on YouTube: “I got you toronto” (while laughing)
when In reality he already had made plans over the all star break with wade and bron.
Demar on playing in Toronto: I love it here, forget l.a, I want to retire a raptor.
More bosh =‘s more kapono and Landry fields.
More demar =‘s more ibaka, Lowry and the likes.
Eff bosh 1000.
