Chris Bosh is one the African Americans who wants to follow suit of the NFL and pursue the banning of the 'N' word in the NBA. Bosh believes all slurs should be banned, but thinks they would have to throw all offensive slurs in a hat and ban them all.
Another concern for Bosh were players who try to use a replacement word in place of banned words. Bosh believes the word is used too much in mainstream America, and also admits to hearing players use the word often on the court. The Miami Heat power forward went on to say it is uncomfortable word to hear, but it is mainly used in a friendly way.
