Chris Bosh has two very different battles going on.
On one hand, the two-time NBA champion and 11-time All-Star is fresh off of failing his physical with the Miami Heat last month due to his ongoing bout with blood clots, which could end his career abruptly.
On the other hand, the veteran power forward is up against some baby mama drama on the other court — the legal kind.
According to one report, Bosh filed a subpoena to the producers of Basketball Wives, requesting that they fork over the raw footage of his baby mama, Allison Mathis, shot on the show. He had previously contended that her being part of the show would infringe on his trademark rights.
The footage never aired, though, as Mathis was released from the show's cast before the third season debuted in 2011.
Bosh and Mathis share a daughter, Trinity, together, and had been entangled in a legal dispute over her until they reached a settlement last year.
What hasn't been settled is Mathis's allegation that Bosh made her lose out on up to $250,000 that she was slated to earn for being on Basketball Wives. Mathis's unresolved lawsuit dates back to 2011.
Bosh's reported subpoena is a counter measure to seemingly help end any chance of their dirty laundry being aired out before the masses.
Hopefully, these two could work things out ... and soon.
