After the jump, Chris Bosh's video adios to his hometown as he leaves for Las Vegas on his way to Beijing, where the Toronto Raptor forward will play for Team USA along with the likes of Jason Kidd, Carmelo Anthony, Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Chris Paul and Dwyane Wade. The video, shot outside during a "beautiful, glorious Sunday morning" in Dallas, isn't really all that exciting -- unless you're wondering what the former Lincoln High School star is taking with him to China, in which case, wonder no longer. Though I'm kinda wondering what's in the "medicine kit" and how many "snacks" he needs. Just a little rambling and repetitive, that's all I'm saying. And rambling. Repetitive also. --Robert Wilonsky
