The 2012-13 NBA season has been a breeze for the Miami Heat, but all is not well with one member of the team's "Big Three." According to NBC 6 South Florida, Chris Bosh's Florida home was robbed late Wednesday night, on his birthday no less.
NBC 6 also reports that $340,000 worth of watches, handbags and rings were stolen from the eight-time All-Star's residence.

#BREAKING: Miami Beach Police said Chris Bosh's house was robbed and $340K in watches, handbags rings were stolen4/4/2013, 3:07:21 PM
The robbery allegedly occurred when Bosh and his wife were out celebrating his 29th birthday. When they returned home, they noticed that some things were missing and contacted the police at 12:30 a.m. ET on Thursday morning.
According to the report, police say that there were no signs of forced entry, and big-ticket items such as Bosh's NBA championship ring were left alone, according to the police report courtesy of TMZ.
Bosh's birthday celebration was an extravagant Moroccan-themed affair. Many of his Heat teammates were in attendance, including LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Udonis Haslem and Juwan Howard, according to JocksandStilettoJill.com.
With teammates James, Wade and Mario Chalmers missing the past couple of games, Bosh has been a one-man show for the Heat of late.
He poured in 23 points in a victory over the San Antonio Spurs on Sunday, including the game-winning three-pointer, and followed that up with another 23-point effort against the New York Knicks on Tuesday.
Bosh tends to defer to James and Wade when everyone is healthy, but head coach Erik Spoelstra has to be pleased with the way his big man has been playing with the NBA playoffs quickly approaching.
Bosh will have to refocus his attention on basketball in short order, as he and the Heat will travel to take on the Charlotte Bobcats on Friday.
