He made his comments Sunday in a telephone interview with The Associated Press from Ghana, where he's been doing some work with NBA Africa in recent days while taking a break from a family vacation.
Analysis: Bosh says he was tempted by an offer to join the Houston Rockets. He says he turned it down because his decision hinged on more than "the business of basketball" and instead revolved largely around the fact that his wife and children are happy in South Florida. He'll soon be signing a five-year, $118 million contract to stay with the Heat.

The Heat are continuing to negotiate with Dwyane Wade, the other member of what was the Miami "Big 3" that went to the NBA Finals in each of the last four seasons.
