For 10-time NBA All-Star Chris Bosh, technology continues to play an important and growing role. Bosh told CNBC on Friday technology not only helps him connect with his fans on social media, but he see's great promise in wearables and its ability to help his game.
"Performance is king for us," he said. "We have to make sure our bodies are rested, that we are doing the proper things to make sure we are performing on the court and there are a lot of different ways you can use your smartphones or now your wearable tech to improve that."
Data-crunching technology has also been a priority for the league, as fantasy sports has become bigger than ever. The NBA has invested heavily in analytic tools that allow fans to gather stats in real-time and provide player tracking technology.
"The stats tell a story. You see similar patterns start to emerge…If you can put yourself in adventitious situations—than its key," Bosh said. However, he warns while it can be an effective tool, you still have to have a feel for the game.
"You have to marry the two for it to be effective," he said.

Bosh also addressed the possibility of one day reuniting with his former teammate Lebron James. "One thing the last year has shown me, is that things can change," he said. "You never know what can happen but at the same time, we have to take care of our own individual businesses and our play."
"If things work out…they work out," Bosh said.
