08:05 AM ET 07.30 | Chris Bosh didn't want to leave comments about giving up on the Raptors without a rebuttal. In an interview on Rogers Sportsnet on Thursday night, Bosh responded to allegations made by Raptors general manager Bryan Colangelo on Toronto radio station FAN 590 that claimed the All-Star was "checked out" late last season and chose not to play some of the Raptors' final games. "I play this game as hard as I can every time I step on the court," Bosh said. "On the back of my jersey it says 'Bosh' ... The Boshes are hard workers. We have a lot of pride in what we do, in our jobs and in life."

Let your actions speak for you, Bro.

Man I wish people would just let this go. Its over. He's in Miami. SO is LeBron. Get over it and move on with your life.

Its crazy how these GM's/owners have all these retroactive negative things to say about guys AFTER they spent so much time and effort trying to throw 9 figure contracts at them....

Cav's and Raptors need to realize that these guys gave them 7 years. a 7 year commitment to winning and the organization didn't give them a supporting cast of players to make them contenders. Lebron helped his team become better players, made Mo an allstar but still it was the Lebron show! same thing in Toronto except I don't think Bosh had the same impact on his teammates.

You can't be mad at these guys because they stayed the duration of their contracts and contract extensions. I would understand if they demanded a trade, but seriously... give it a rest.

Last year he averaged career highs in points, rebounds, and field goal percentage. He even won a conference player of the week award last april. But, Colangelo knows him better than I do, so when he says he was doggin it than Colangelo is either spot on, or emotionally charged from current events and is speaking about Bosh to divert attention from the rest of a fairly pathetic roster.

I am a raptors fan, I didnt like Bosh leaving us to Miami, but lets face the fact, he is already gone. I watched almost all raptors game last season, Bosh played hard late in the season, but he is just not Kobe or James, he couldnt change the game result by himself. He is a 2nd option guy. He is limited, so I dont blame him.

Shut up and play

Hard-working Bosh has a LOT to prove this year...he has to prove he's worth the hype he's building himself up to. If he keeps up at this rate, T&R is going to start posting about his Vegas parties.

I'm just glad he cut those snakes off his head!

Omg, this mess is getting old.

Shaq?

im fine with shaq if they sign him...the difference with him with the celtics than him with the cavs is he is needed to be a force and isnt relied on to be a crucial part of their success....

Not too funny, SHAQ averaged 23 minutes as a starter last year and RASHEED as a sixth man averaged 22 minutes and you know my boy SHAQ, he loves to be SMIGGLE and hunt for that ring....SHAQ is not the same dude that GAVE LAKERLAND a rep with handing over 3RINGS to them....or the BIG FELLA that strapped on his FLASHDRIVE and put it to the MAVS in 7....so if the big dummy can take the bench role....he could also, just maybe, add some new hardware...I don't think he has a SIXTH MAN AWARD ;^)

shaq would be fine on the right team...............but if he is a focal point and a key to the teams success than that team is in trouble

Your it right ACEHOLE....why would the RAPTORS even care, IT isn't like their organization ever did anything to deserve the right to even speak, let alone throw dirt at a player.....hell there in CANADA...they are one step below the CLIPPERS....so get over it and move...EH

Nah that's not even it, Cleveland needs to move on too. Be angry or hurt or whatever for a week and then move on. This all went down on like July 9, that was 3 WEEKS ago...Get over it and stop all this back and forth with players that aren't on your team anymore because it makes you look like a pathetic scorned ex girlfriend....
