Chris Bosh: They Should Ban All Slurs


Miami Heat center Chris Bosh would support the NBA following the NFL’s lead in efforts to consider penalizing players for using the N-word and other racial slurs during games.

Bosh, who is black, said he hears the N-word used by players during games and that it creates uncomfortable situations, although he says it’s used primarily “in a friendly” way.

Bosh was asked about the subject by a Miami-area radio reporter during his session with media after Wednesday’s practice in preparation for Thursday’s game against the New York Knicks.
