Bosh didn't. From the Toronto Star:
Alert observers noted that Bosh, stone-faced, didn't so much as acknowledge the appreciative throng.
He didn't raise a hand in return of the love.
He didn't offer a knowing nod.
And wasn't that as good as waving goodbye?
No, no, no. Nobody's saying Bosh has made his decision to leave Toronto when he has the option to become a free agent in July, although there have been plenty of observers, both inside the team and around the league, who have noted his post-all-star-break swoon and wondered if it indicates the intention of an impending departure.
How dare you, Chris Bosh? How could you not wave to the fans during a close game in the midst of a playoff race? Not cool.
Or maybe, just maybe, he was caught up in "kind of a crappy game for him," and didn't really feel up to celebrating an individual honor. This ranks below LeBron in a Yankees hat in terms of cause for concern. If Chris Bosh leaves, it's going to be because he's extremely frustrated, not because he played with some All-Stars in February.
This summer's free agency is going to make everyone crazy.
