As usual, Chris Bosh leaves you wondering just a bit.

In his latest comments about his future, made during a taping of the ESPN Radio's Meet The All-Stars on Thursday in Dallas, the Raptors' all-star forward made no commitment one way or the other about staying with or leaving Toronto after this season when he can opt out of the final year of his contract and become a free agent.

But he does drop a few hints. According to ESPN'S Marc Stein, who was at a taping of the show, Bosh took the opportunity to lash back at some of those in the media who have been speaking for him.

"He's gone, it's over, it's done," Bosh said in a mocking tone according to Stein.

That was Bosh just getting warmed up. Perhaps more important than that little shot, was this one when asked about playing second banana to one of the other two potential franchise-type free agents in LeBron James or Dwyane Wade.

"I was just looking at what people say and it's like: 'Chris is going to go here and play with him or this, this and that.' I'm like: Wait a minute. I feel like I should be built around. And maybe that's just my ego talking, but I feel that I'm a very good player in this league and I'm only going to get better. So ... maybe we should be getting somebody (in Toronto)."

From the what-did-he-mean-by-that portion of the program came this little tidbit from Bosh: "Things you like and dislike change daily," Bosh said, "(which makes it) impossible almost to not only predict the future, but predict your feelings."

DeRozan dunks in
