NBA News: Chris Bosh Opts Out, Seeking $15-16 Million In Free Agency

Share on FacebookTweet about this on Twitter

After two championships in four straight NBA Finals appearances, the Miami Heat face an uncertain future with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade opting out of their contracts. On Saturday, Chris Bosh followed his teammates as he also opted out of his contract and will become an unrestricted free agent according to ESPN’s Chris Broussard:

After taking a pay cut to join Miami four seasons ago, Bosh is reportedly seeking a five year deal in the $15-16 million range. Although most believe the three players will remain with the Heat, Bosh will likely receive numerous offers since there are very few big men available in this year’s free agent market.

While the Lakers are hoping to land LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony this summer, there were reports throughout the season of Los Angeles having interest in Bosh. The team currently has the cap space to sign a player to a max contract heading into free agency and is looking to possibly shed more salary by trading Steve Nash’s contract.

With the Lakers selecting Julius Randle at Thursday’s draft, the team is looking to add more quality big men as Robert Sacre is the only frontcourt player under contract for next season.

    Rather have Pau back…

    • They call me Pringles

      Although I love to have Pau back too, I really don’t see it happening considering how he was treated by management during trade deadlines for the past 3 years. I see him coming back to Memphis playing with a re-signed Randolph and brother Marc. Pau stills owns a house there currently vacated by his brother.

      • justin

        i’m gonna be a grammar nazi here and give you a lesson.. can’t help myself. If you use the phrase ‘come to’ it means that you are at the place he’s going to. Are you in both Memphis and NY? If so, I commend you on your ability to be in 2 places at once.

        • They call me Pringles

          Thank you for the correction. By the way, please make sure to use capital letters at the beginning of sentences. I’ve also noticed your use of ellipsis is only two dots, which should be three. I can’t help but correct your errors as well Mister “Grammar Nazi”.

          • comrade24

            The guy who proofread Hitler’s speeches was the first grammar nazi. Now, we’ve covered English and history can we move the fuck on to p.e.?

          • They call me Pringles

            Hahaha he probably hated physical education, that’s why he tried to change the subject to English, a class where he obviously used as time to sleep.

          • Lecramps

            LoL bust that nazi ass like we did during WWII. history repeats itself.

          • okLakers

            Really, we do not have english! English is what?
            Palaces and the queen?

            We speak Californian.

        • Tsquare

          Oh shut up

        • okLakers

          I understood Pring. Now what are you saying?

    • TheTruthKills

      Pau won’t come back cheap. His mindset is “why take a pay cut for here when I can take the same pay cut for a contender?”

      • Jim213

        Yes, if Pau decides to return #24 will have some sway on his return. Comparing both stats (Pau’s & Bosh) Gasol could get you a double double a night. Bosh will likely get $15 mil as given Wade’s decline an inconsistency he’d likely take less to bring in more help. Plus, it’d set them back if Bosh left being he’s one of the anchor’s of the team.

        • comrade24

          If we’re going to pay $15 mil a year to someone they have to be a game changer, not a consolation prize. If we can’t get Melo, then we have to patient, bring in good role players and save cap for next year

          • Spitfire

            This…this is what Mitch has said numerous times that it is not necessarily needed to use all the cap space, specially if the Lakers dont get either Lebron and/or Melo. That is for having the flexibility to sign FA in 2015 or 2016.

    • Lakers Fan

      We don’t need Pau back. We need a defensive center to protect the rim and cover up for Randle due to his defensive short comings. I wouldn’t mind Pau coming back if we didn’t draft Randle. But since we did, we need a defensive center to play along side of Randle.

      • Badazztj12

        There aren’t any in the FA beside Monroe and he barely even play rim protecter being so young. Gasol is our only guy right now and he is decent and maybe better if we get Hollins as coach

        • kb

          Gortat

        • Spitfire

          The Lakers dont have to rely on Pau getting better specially on D. I hope you saw him last season on how terrible he is on D. We all love Pau but it’s time to let him go. And besides, Pau’s injuries maybe due to his age as well is has affected his mobility and movement especially on the defensive end. I have enough of Pau manning the middle.

          • Badazztj12

            Why even bother when your team not even going to the playoffs? He even still manage to put 1.5blks per game still

        • okLakers

          Caveman played better than Gasol!

    • L4L

      No, Pau might be a very nice person, but you can’t go by that.

      Bosh would be a superior asset. I dont know if he would be financially attainable though. Also there might be other big names we need to “Go all out for” and need to have that cap space.

      • Badazztj12

        When was the last time bosh got a double-double?

        • TheTruthKills

          His role is to stretch the floor and keep the paint clear for LeBron and Wade. Besides, when the Heat needed a rebound he usually got it for them (see game 6 of the 2013 finals).

          • keenanjen

            That was 2013 what happened this season?

          • TheTruthKills

            He averaged 16 and 6 as the third option on a team that went to the Finals. Meanwhile Gasol averaged 17 and 7 as a top option for our team.

          • Badazztj12

            but Miami ranks last in rebounding and he plays longer min than gasol

          • TheTruthKills

            Bosh is supposed to rebound for his entire team? Also Bosh played 32 minutes per game and Gasol played 31.4 minutes per game. Does 0.6 minutes make that much of a difference? Like I said before, Bosh pretty much matched Pau’s production and Bosh was the third banana on the Heat. Meanwhilre, Gasol was a top option for our team.

          • keenanjen

            Gasol was injured most of the season. What’s Bosh excuse? Also it’s funny how people get amnesia D’Antoni was a outside in coach, Pau was not the top opinion in that offense that’s why he struggled

          • TheTruthKills

            I already told you what Bosh’s role is on his team but you won’t listen. You can have it.

          • keenanjen

            Bosh is not the third option anymore last season he was their 2nd option because Wade couldn’t stay healthy. Even when Wade was on the floor most times, not all, but most times he was a liability he is not the same player he once was look at the finals.

          • L4L

            Perfectly said.

          • keenanjen

            I’m not saying bring back Pau, I don’t want either. Third option his rebounds should be higher that’s my point

          • Optimus

            Actally gasol avreged 9.7 rebounds last year. Get your facts right.

          • jeremy

            who care if it 7 or 9, season stats are very similar and bosh wasnt even the top option and gasol was most of the season

          • Badazztj12

            dude 2 reb does make a difference anywhere and when bosh played the same position with more min

          • Optimus

            Gasol is all around better player then bosh. Almost 18/10/3.5 is great numbers at his age. Plus he was injured.

          • Badazztj12

            Exactly man what are fools taking about? They don’t even respect Pau game even if he did lose a touch but much skilled than bosh even at the age

          • Optimus

            People call Pau soft yet Bosh is hovering around the 3 point line and gets 6 rebounds as their center. Pau had kaman and j hill gobling up rebounds yet he still gets 10 a game.
            Not to mention more asst and more blocks and more rebounds in the same time played.

          • Badazztj12

            Pau was even used wrong by D’antoni and he still got above average stages for his age

          • Optimus

            Yep! I would never pay bosh 15-16 mil a year. I rather get pau for 10 mil and use the rest on another good player.

          • jim2

            I agree!

          • Badazztj12

            He is not a C. He is weaker than gasol. Gasol has better post moves and he worser as a rim protecter Gasol. He doesn’t even rebound. Why you think Miami were last in rebounding for the past seasons?

          • L4L

            Gasol hasnt been Gasol for years now.

          • Badazztj12

            Better than Bosh

          • L4L

            I think Bosh has more upside then he has had at Miami. Hes a real good player and he shares the ball, and is a great play maker

          • Badazztj12

            Do you even watch Gasol play. He is the best passing big man in the league besides Love.

          • TheTruthKills

            And yet Bosh put up similar numbers to Gasol as a third option. Like I said, his role is to stretch the defense and stay out of the paint so LeBron and Wade will have room to work. It hurt team rebounding, but that strategy also took them to 4 straight finals.

          • HAHAHA

            i think its more like LeBron do most of the work but yeah Bosh can put up some number when LeBron had the injury though

          • keenanjen

            What do you mean the 3rd option did you not watch the Heat last season he was the 2nd option. Wade was never healthy even when Wade was on the floor people knew Bosh was the 2nd option because Wade would disappear.

          • TheTruthKills

            When Wade was out Bosh’s scoring per 40 minutes went up. When Wade does play he’s still the second option. Please try again.

          • keenanjen

            You try again. I watched every game I was born in Florida. I know what I’m talking about. When Wade was on the floor for THIS season Bosh was the 2nd option because Wade was not himself and they were saving him for the playoffs. Wade only delivered in maybe 3 games in the years post season. Bosh ONCE AGAIN for this season was the 2nd option

          • TheTruthKills

            “When Wade was out Bosh’s scoring per 40 minutes went up”

            *Ignores point, starts digging a hole*

            “When Wade does play he’s still gets more touches and plays called for him than Bosh does. Sounds like a second option to me”

            *Ignores point, keeps digging a hole*

            We’re done. Don’t bother replying
            .

          • Badazztj12

            I got to reply though. How can a guy like Tim(for his age) still put in work on bosh at I think 38 right. We all talk about the way Gasol doesn’t even try, but why try and you know your team not even close to making the playoffs? Bosh was in the Finals and was lost evey game on defense.

          • keenanjen

            He’s going to make up a stat watch and see lol

          • Badazztj12

            lol

          • keenanjen

            Great point also remember Gasol played with a bad calf muscle.

          • Badazztj12

            Wasn’t he healing from knee ten(some shit) at the beginning of season and then had the flu but STILL was productive?

          • keenanjen

            If I’m not mistaken I believe you are right

          • keenanjen

            What do you mean don’t bother replying you haven’t made any point. Lol I’m never digging holes you know nothing about the Heat except for maybe 10 games you’ve seen in season and the post season. Of course Wade touches the ball more their swing the ball around and he also plays pg at times, he’s not shooting more than Bosh this season. Maybe you are slow maybe you keep thinking about 2013. In 2014 Bosh is the 2nd option why is that so hard for you to believe. Oh yeah maybe because you’re trying to drive home a point and you don’t want to admit you’re wrong. Now once again I’ll say it for you slower. This
            ……Season….. Bosh…. was …. The … 2nd…. option. If this was 2013 I would agree with you, but this is not that season. So use your own advice don’t bother replying. However I know it will be too hard for you not to, you’ll come back with factless stats lol

        • L4L

          Good point, but are you suggesting hes a has been? I think hes just in the wrong environment. We could put his full potential to good use here.

          • Badazztj12

            Just because he was on a team where wade and bron was doesn’t mean he wasn’t playing good. I’m just saying he isn’t that good for the Lakers right now and I believe Gasol is better who put up 17pts/9reb/4asts/1.5blks last season just in 31 min.

          • L4L

            Remember these Gasol stats are without Kobe in the mix and with a weaker Laker team. If Gasol was that good, he should’ve been in the 20+ average with this Laker season. He was designated to carry the team without Kobe, he dissapointed there.

          • Badazztj12

            Remember Gasol has been playing hurt and mostly was injuired the past two years. Last season Dwight was getting all the touches the paint and came back in the playoffs and dominated adding a triple double vs Spurs. Yes he was doing this even when kobe was playing if you even watch the Lakers play for the last I think 6 years

        • They call me Pringles

          It’s unfair to compare Bosh to Pau. Pau averaged around 17 pt 9 rbs per game as the number 2 guy on the team. Bosh averaged 16 pt 6 rbs per game as the number 3 guy on his team.

          Has anyone noticed how delicate Pau’s hamstrings have become the past couple of years? He doesn’t jump as high anymore. I’ve noticed every time Pau’s in the paint and jumps to shoot with a defender on him, he forms into a semi fetus position and not like before, he used to jump straight up and doesn’t crouch. It looks like he’s protecting his hamstrings when he lands. I’ve also noticed he doesn’t run that well anymore. Under Dumbtoni’s run and gun offense, Pau takes days off after games.

        • Tyrone

          Get a clearer picture it’s blurry can’t see you the flash is in the way bro.LOL anyways Chris Bosh is a soft SOB and he can’t bang down low.I think he was getting like under 4 rebounds when Uncle Timmy was taking him to the wood shed during the ass whooping the Cheat got.They got bitched and shitted on in the finals it was lopsided as fuck.

          • Badazztj12

            LOL

        • justin

          good point. I assumed he got mad rebs, but upon investigating I notice he’s only had 8 double doubles all of this past season. Weak.

        • Spitfire

          You are looking on the stats sheet only and not what Bosh can bring to the table. Before he joined the Heat, he is a double double machine in Toronto.

          • Badazztj12

            Why would you even take a chance him anyway. We don’t know if he even gonna go back his double-double ways but anyway it looks like he may take a paycut to stay with Heat

      • Kevin Castaneda

        Man, let’s not forget that pau had the worst season of his career and a big reason for that is #1 he was injured #2 mike (no) D antoni

    • LakersHeatBeef

      Strengths: As a 7-1 big man, he has perfect size for the center position, combined with great coordination, mobility and good athleticism by European standards …7’4” wingspan and 9’4” standing reach gives him tremendous size, with a frame that could easily allow him to add muscle without losing balance or mobility … He has a good footwork and lateral speed, which makes him really effective in Pick and Roll situations on both ends of the court … Furthermore his mobility makes him really effective in the open court, being an effective offensive weapon both on primary and secondary transition situations … He has soft hands (ambidextrous) and range also with hook shot, and the ability to hit in catch and shoot situations even from a range … Overall he has remarkable shooting skills for a big man, showing the ability even with the jumper and the floater from outside the paint … Good game comprehension for his age, he’s able to use cuts and screens to receive the ball with good timing in the painted area … With his size and instincts, he’s also a good offensive rebounder … Defensively, his lateral mobility allows him to guard wing players after the switch during pick and roll, granting his team defensive flexibility …

      Lakers got a different option than Chris Bosh as they have signed 20 year old Russian Big Man Artem Klimenko yes he will be on the Lakers Summer League Team in Las Vegas.Artem speaks no English and he uses a translator to communicate in English.I love his potential.

  • TheTruthKills

    15-16 million is just about right, but he’s staying in Miami along with Wade and LeBron. I wonder what Mitch’s game plan is beyond the Melo/LeBron or Bosh pipe dream; because it’s looking like he’ll miss on all of them.

  • Lakers Fan

    The Lakers would be smart to look past these big name FAs. If they can get a center with a defensive presence, a defensive SF(Deng/Ariza), and a PG that can play defense and score when needed, they should be fine. We had a lot of players from last year prove they are worth keeping, so filling the bench with good players should not be an issue. With the Lakers letting Bazemore become an UFA, this either means they are trying to bring back Young or they are making cap room for a big name FA. Seeing what’s going down in Miami, I think it’s safe to say they are planning something huge. If they are able to retain the big 3 and get some good role players, it’s RIP to the rest of the NBA.

    • TheTruthKills

      There’s a good chance Deng and Ariza are out of our price range. The FO doesn’t want to tie up too much money in FAs that aren’t really worth it. They want to keep flexibility for future FA chases like Love, Aldridge, and Durant. The Lakers will never stop chasing big name FAs. That’s how past championship teams were built, and Jim and Mitch are convinced that future champions will be built the same.

      • Badazztj12

        He already said he is going all out but he did say he will try his best to get one big name besides melo and bron

        • TheTruthKills

          Going all out doesn’t guarantee success in that endeavor. The Mavs tried going all out for the past 2 summers and look what it got them. They’ve been chasing ghost and it will be the same story this summer for them.

          • Badazztj12

            We aren’t the Mavs or are you a lakers fan?

          • TheTruthKills

            I’m a Lakers fan just pointing out an example. That “we aren’t (insert team here)” mentality won’t get us anything but a temporary ego boost. The league has changed.

          • Badazztj12

            Ok man I just see you lack confidence In Mitch. End of discussion.

        • HAHAHA

          if we cant get melo or bron we need to save up the cap to get next year FA

          • Badazztj12

            need to get a guy like Lance

      • Lakers Fan

        We have Randle. There is no need for Love or Aldridge. The big name FAs they are chasing right now are dream scenarios. Durant is a pipe dream as well. LeBron, Wade, Bosh, and Haslem has opted out of their contracts to clear 55 million in cap space. They are all likely taking pay cuts, and Riley will build another championship team around LeBron. Like I said, the Lakers need to look past them because FAs will be salivating at the opportunity to play in South Beach with LeBron. Thats the reality of the situation. Kobe’s contract killed their chances of winning a ship this year and possibly next.

        • L4L

          Randle is too inexperienced as of now.

        • TheTruthKills

          You made some great points, but what are the Lakers supposed to do? The Nash and Howard trades took up just about all of our assets. If the FO wants to compete immediately their only chance is to close their eyes and swing in free agency. It’s either that or rebuild from the ground up while Kobe does his 2 year farewell tour. Kobe’s contract is a killer, but there’s nothing we can do now. It’s either gamble in free agency or complete rebuild.

          • Lakers Fan

            I completely agree with everything you said, but just because we gamble in free agency it doesnt mean we will get any top FAs to come play for us. They can try, but with Kobe’s contract, Nash’s contract, and the new CBA we are limited in the amount of money we can throw at FAs which has always been our advantage over other teams. I want to see us win another championship and see kobe get number 6. But unless mitch pulls off a miracle i dont see it happening.

          • TheTruthKills

            Excellent points. I don’t see Mitch pulling off a miracle anytime soon. I think the best course of action would be to target young free agents that can play well now and most importantly into the future. Guys like Eric Bledsoe and Gordon Hayward have their best years ahead of them. They’re young, can contribute now, and can be good pieces for future Lakers teams. Kobe may not like it (and he may not get #6), but he made his $48.5 million bed and will have to sleep in it.

          • Lakers Fan

            I would love Bledsoe, but we would have to pay too much to get him. Phoenix will match practically any offer thrown at Bledsoe. I just want a young aggressive PG that can be a good piece to the future of the Lakers. But like you said, Kobe might not like it but he may be going out without that 6th ring.

  • HAHAHA

    No please no rather have melo or bronbron

    • TheTruthKills

      Neither are coming.

      • HAHAHA

        yeah i know… at least dont try to pursue for bosh he is too expensive

        • L4L

          If not Bosh, nor Lebron, nor Melo, then Who?

          Usually, you get what you pay for. We need star power to compete in the new NBA.

          • HAHAHA

            try to save for next year it better… we need someone who can carry us to the next banner

          • L4L

            Who?

          • HAHAHA

            someone who can play defense and/or who can consistently score

          • Badazztj12

            is this same person or two people?lol

          • HAHAHA

            why would i try to create 2 guest just to engage in a discussion? lol

          • TheTruthKills

            Jim and Mitch will probably save money for next year. If they miss out next summer they’ll save money for the year after that and so on and so forth. This could get very bad very fast.

          • lakers72

            mbenga for cheap…. then bring luke back ? lol

  • nash gots to go

    It would be really funny if they used Wade’s cap money to sign Carmelo instead, just sayin’

  • © The One and Only GOAT ™ ©

    Bosh please stay the f*** away from the Lakers!! Thanks!!

    -GOAT

  • jeremy

    base off stats bosh and pau are the same player difference is bosh is 3 years younger

  • Al Haldie

    5 yr contract 15-16 mil pr yr —the LAKERS would not do that-what a JOKE…

    • jeremy

      lakers did that with pau and pau and bosh are about the same player

    • DO SOMETHING

      I would jump at that deal and get mello , kobe will have to take less money so we can still keep gasol or sign and trade for rondo keep Jordan hill stretch provision with nash its possible team:
      CENTER: Gasol / Hill /Robert S.
      POWER FOWARD: Bosh / Randle /Kelly
      SMALL FOWARD: Mello / Johnson /
      SHOOTING GAURD: Kobe / Nick Young / X Henry / Bazemore
      POINT GAURD: Rondo / Farmar / Marshal
      COACH: BYRON SCOTT
      could be somewhere close to this and kobe off the book in 2 yrs go get durant and kobe would play for min. on 3rd and 4th yr

      • Badazztj12

        One thing his nick name is melo and second why would bosh start over randle, when we haven’t even seen Randle play yet.

      • Al Haldie

        Kobe already got his money up front – paid a short timer after he resigned – and in the bank – that was part of the deal…

      Someone with some smarts! What are people smoking? 15 million for bosh???

  • Anwar

    I would take bosh over gasol this stage in their career. Neither can big enough to guard centers but aleast bosh can keep up with athletic pfs

    • jeremy

      plus we would get bosh who 4 years younger. there wouldnt be much of a drop off if any. we cant say pau won rings because bosh did to. so if you want either we have to go base off who better for the lakers at this stage in their career

    • Badazztj12

      Why would we want we bosh at 4 anyway when we have “Bully Ball” player in Randle

  • Ciribicorbo

    Another stupid rumor, if you believe this Lakers are interested in all the Miami’s free players…

    • jeremy

      how is it stupid , i believe there was stories in the past even before this stating if bosh hit free agency lakers might want him

      • Optimus

        Look the only reason miami big 3 opted out is to resign for less money so they can brimg one more piece. We dont need these cry baby foos that need to gang up and have 4 superstars to win mentality. Here is my senerio!
        Lakers get
        Lowry, and Deng/ariza and resign pau and j hill!
        Along with kobe and Randle and a nice bench thats a good team.
        If thats not enough we get another nice piece or two when nash’s contract comes off next year! Now thats realistic.

        • Badazztj12

          I like the way you think

          • Optimus

            Thx the only thing im worried about is miami snagging Lowry! I really want him in LA! My second choice though would be iseah thomas!

          • Badazztj12

            Yea Isaiah can score pass and get steals but I just don’t think Mitch would take a chance on him

        • Bruce

          You absolutely right, resign for less money to bring in more talent.

      • DDub

        Bosh for 15 million. No no no! Not with the Lakers!

  • Andy L

    Bosh can dream on. Maybe Toronto would pay him this much. Also, PJ has a hard on for Bosh but the Knicks don’t have the cap room so there you go…

  • They call me Pringles

    2015 Lakers:
    C Jordan Hill, Chris Bosh, Robert Sacre
    PF Chris Bosh, Julius Randle
    SF Carmelo Anthony, Luol Deng, Nick Young
    SG Kobe Bryant, Nick Young, Kent Bazemore
    PG Jordan Farmar, Kendall Marshall

    DO IT MITCH!

    • DDub

      Hell no don’t do it Mitch! 15 million for bosh!! Hell no! Miami can keep him!

    • Bruce

      Do the math dude, how is the Lakers going to sign both Melo and Bosh at the same time with 2 max deals plus Kobe’s, the math don’t add up unless Lakers want to go over the cap which they are not going to do. We be lucky if we get Melo.

    • Bruce

      and forget to mention also signing Luol Deng at the same time??

      • They call me Pringles

        It’s a long shot signing him as well I know. Hehehe. There’s just so many opportunities we haven’t had in a long time. So many options to consider.

  • DDub

    Let me see, humm? I can sign Chris Bosh for 5yrs at about 75million.He is not a top rebound guy, doesn’t have a good post game and doesn’t protect the rim. But he will stand outside the lane and shoot 3 point shots…He could be a laker! Hell no!!! We need some one named Kick ass Smith under the basket and better not come to the lane! You might leave with one eye or maybe a mangled arm! Thats what the Lakers need on defense, not a player who admits that he don’t want to bang under the basket! 15 million a season!! Hell no! Are you serious ! Miami keep him, he is yours!!

  • http://people.ign.com/ltsjoemama ltsJoeMama

    lol good luck with that, Bosh.

  • Zimmeredge

    Bosh is reportedly seeking a five year deal in the $15-16 million range.

    If that’s true then the heat have a problem because you can only give player a five year contract. It better be your best player aka lebron james. Also, bosh is used a role plaer. If he comes to la play for 4y with 16-18 a year with a dominant role. He might think about it twice. Also playing with Kobe and randle will give the ability to play his natural game: face up, mid range, low post instead of being a spot up for the heat.

  • Jan Rey

    Honestly, Pau may still be a better overall player than CB

  • Lakers4Life

    Once we land LeBron and Melo, there won’t be much need for Bosh as Gasol will likely wanna stay.

    • DDub

      LBJ Is not coming to the Lakers, melo is a long shot, a maybe, people need to quit tripping like both will come.

  • Marck

    Why does this site always say that the Lakers are interested in EVERY FREE AGENT?!?! SMH

  • Bruce

    Get real, the big 3 in Miami are sticking together, no matter which team they go, they will want to be on the same team, so why not all 3 resign with the Heat?? They been to 4 straight NBA finals winning 2 along the way, so I don’t see any reason why they would want to leave Miami. Back to reality, Lakers sign Melo, resign Bazemore, Hill, Kelly, Meeks, Young, resign Pau for discount, DeAndre Kane, and we’re ready to roll !!

  • sena

    he opted out for adding another superstar player to the team can’t u understand? ?miami will be stronger next season however we must add to the our team new faces young players who are cheap not melo

  • metalbass

    please no. please noooooo please noooooo

  • nash gots to go

    fuck the heat
