. NBA star Chris Bosh became the latest celebrity to visit the Dallas Cowboys’ training camp, stopping by Friday after the morning practice session.
Bosh, the Miami Heat forward who played at Dallas Lincoln, offered his thoughts on the DeAndre Jordan saga that wrecked the Dallas Mavericks’ future plans during the off-season.
Jordan agreed to sign a four-year contract with the Mavericks on July 3, only to renege on it days later by re-signing with the Los Angeles Clippers. It was a high-drama episode.
“It’s unfortunate,” Bosh said. “That’s why you always have to be sure of your decision, man. I know for Dallas and the Dallas fans it’s kind of like a blow because they are probably going to build a team that looks a certain way and it doesn’t happen.

“So it’s a difficult part for both of them. I’m sure [the NBA] will probably look into the grace period thing now. It’s an area of interest now, so we’ll see how it goes.”
Bosh says he’s been a longtime fan of the Cowboys.
“I’ve been trying to make it for the last few years. I never get a chance to because my summers have been shorter. It’s been a little longer this year so I was able to come out and spend some time,” Bosh said. “Michael Irvin and Deion Sanders with all their antics, they were the best. You see that a lot in Dez Bryant.”
Bosh knows something about winning too. He’s won two NBA titles with the Heat.
“Play together and take it one week at a time. That’s really the best way to go,” Bosh said. “Give your best out there. Always believe in yourself and the man next to you. Go out there and get the job done.
“I don’t know what it is about being a Cowboys’ fan. I’m sure you guys know, people give you crap everywhere. I’ve been holding on for awhile now.”
