Chris Bosh's newsletter, "The Last Chip," will recount stories from the Big Three's last championship run.

Former NBA Championship winner and current Austin resident Chris Bosh just launched a newsletter, "The Last Chip," with proceeds from the first month going toward Color of Change, a racial justice organization.


The newsletter will consist of stories and lessons Bosh recounts from the Big Three's last championship run. From 2010-13, the Big Three⁠—Lebron James, Dwayne Wade and Bosh himself—dominated the court, leading the Miami Heat into the NBA Finals for four consecutive seasons, winning the championship twice.

Over 10 weeks, Bosh said in his announcement, the newsletter will go behind the scenes of huddles, parties and an infamous Harlem Shake video.


Bosh posted he was inspired by the latest protests to donate to a Black Lives Matter organization, writing, "I saw millions of Americans—not only in big cities, but in small towns across the country—rise up to fight for change that's long overdue; change my grandfather, Daddy Jack Bosh, who lived his life in Texas at the height of Jim Crow, never could have imagined. And I began to think this might be the moment for which we've been waiting, the moment when we right the wrongs of the past and build a more just and more equal future."

A big announcement from Austonia

Howdy, and happy holidays.

I have some big news for you.

Austonia is now part of 6AM City, a fast-growing network of hyper-local newsletters across the country.

I’m proud to be telling you this, because 6AM City’s mission is very much like Austonia’s — a daily morning update on events, things-to-do and news, with an underlying mission of community building in the cities they serve.

If you’re not already subscribed, 6AM City’s Austin newsletter is called ATXtoday. One of its city editors is Laura Figi, who you’ll remember for her previous great work on Austonia’s newsletter.

I’ve been reading ATXtoday every day since it launched last year.

Starting this week, you’ll receive ATXtoday every morning and I’m confident it will become part of your daily wake up routine. Be sure to add hello@theatxtoday.com to your contact list (how to do that here).

Meantime let me thank you for your readership and support of Austonia, and convey my wishes for a great holiday season for you and those close to you.


Thank you,

Mark Dewey

Austonia CEO
