Justise Winslow eventually wants his own team.

That day may be here.

LeBron James is with the Cavaliers. Dwyane Wade is with the Bulls. And now Chris Bosh – the last of the Heat’s big three still in Miami, embroiled in a dispute with the team over his health that likely has him moving on from Miami (and he’s not thrilled about it).

That said, Bosh sounds ready to defer to a younger generation led by Winslow and Hassan Whiteside.

In introducing his latest video, Bosh wrote this on his personal website:

I remember just a few years ago when the Big 3 were together and we were having a ball playing the game we love with some of the most professional, talented guys the NBA has ever seen.

I remember the fans of Miami coming out to see the show every night. The love, the compassion and the energy we felt was second to none. I want to thank the city of Miami from the bottom of my heart because things may change but the good times will last forever in my memories. Thank you!

Things are different now and Miami has incredible young talent with a tremendous upside. These are not only talented ball players but great people and friends. I enjoyed playing with those guys and doing my best to mentor them by being an upstanding role model and veteran player. It’s their time to go through the ups and downs of the game with this great city.

Bosh is not accepting that his career is over.

However, he sounds like a guy who likes the Heat’s young stars.
