NORTH CAROLINA (BASN) — While everybody is talking about LeBron James, shouldn’t we be wondering were the Toronto Raptors’ Chris Bosh will be heading next season?

After seven years in Toronto, the five-time All-Star, who averaged 24 points and 10.8 rebounds per game, is also a free agent.

Bosh, in fact, with his long and lanky 6-foot-10 athletic body could be the missing piece that would complete the puzzle to some team’s quest for a NBA championship.

With that said, let’s consider some places Chris Bosh could end up playing basketball next season in the NBA.

Could Chris Bosh end up in Bean Town, wearing the glorious Celtic green in order to rejuvenate the aging Boston Big Three of Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen?

With Rajon Rondo at point guard, Paul Pierce at shooting guard, Kendrick Perkins at center, Kevin Garnett at power forward, and Chris Bosh at small forward as the new starting five, the Celtics could still be championship contenders.

Or could Chris Bosh end up in Los Angeles? Where he would join Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol in the triangle offense.

Now, that’s a scary thought.

But if that’s too much for you to comprehend, maybe Bosh should just join the Dallas Mavericks where he could take some of the scoring burden off of Dirk Nowitzki.

With Bosh in the starting line-up, the Mavericks could be blessed with three offensive weapons when you include Coron Butler in the mix.

If you can’t see Bosh’s dreadlocks flopping and dangling from his head in Dallas, maybe you can imagine him in Miami with Dwayne Wade adding a little more “Heat” to the fire as Pat Riley with his hair-slicked back returns to coach the team to the NBA Finals.

If you think, the city of Miami is too fast and too flashy for Bosh, maybe he should go out to Oklahoma City, where he would be the “lightening” for the Thunder as he teams up with superstar Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. This would be a triple threat that no NBA defense could stop or slow down.

The other two destinations Bosh should consider are New York and Chicago.

In the “Windy City,” Bosh would provide the Bulls’ point guard Derrick Rose with a true scorer to dish the basketball to in Chicago. In New York, however Bosh would finally get the opportunity to display his basketball skills on a national level which would feed his ego but want give him a NBA Championship with the Knicks.

But honestly, where ever, Chris Bosh ends up next season, he will be a winner and his new team will instantly become better….
