Happy Birthday Chris Bosh!
After one season of college ball with Georgia Tech he declared for the 2003 NBA draft and was selected fourth by the Toronto Raptors.
Bosh became a five-time NBA All-Star and played for the U.S. national team and won a gold medal at the 2008 Summer Olympics. Chris led the Raptors to their first playoff appearance in five years and their first-ever division title before he left Toronto in 2010 as the franchise's all-time leader in points, rebounds, blocks, and minutes played.
In 2010, Bosh entered into a sign-and-trade deal to the Miami Heat, where he joined fellow stars Dwyane Wade and LeBron James to became known as the Big Three. Miami, appeared in the NBA Finals each year from 2011 to 2014 and won back to back in 2012 and 2013. Bosh made the NBA All-Star team every year during his time in Miami, before his career was cut short by a blood clotting condition that the NBA ruled to be career-ending. He played his final NBA game on February 9, 2016 and the Heat retired his No. 1 jersey. Chris Bosh was elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame.
