Christopher Wesson Bosh is an American former professional basketball player. A high school "Mr. Basketball" in Texas, Bosh left Georgia Tech after one season to enter the 2003 NBA draft, he was selected fourth overall by the Toronto Raptors in a draft class that included multiple future NBA superstars such as LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Carmelo Anthony. While at Toronto, Bosh became a five-time NBA All-Star, was named to the All-NBA Second Team once, played for the U. S. national team, supplanted former fan favorite Vince Carter as the face and leader of the Raptors franchise. In the 2006–07 season, Bosh led the Raptors to their first playoff appearance in five years and their first-ever division title. Bosh was nicknamed "CB4" by then-Toronto Raptors play-by-play commentator Chuck Swirsky, a combination of Bosh's initials and jersey number, he left Toronto in 2010 as the franchise's all-time leader in points, rebounds and minutes played. In 2010, after seven years with the Raptors, Bosh entered into a sign-and-trade deal in which he was traded to the Miami Heat.
In Miami, Bosh joined fellow stars LeBron James. Bosh spent the second half of his career with Miami, appearing in the NBA Finals each year from 2011 to 2014 and winning NBA titles in 2012 and 2013. Bosh made the NBA All-Star team every year during his time in Miami, his career was cut short by a blood clotting condition that the NBA ruled to be a career-ending illness. Bosh played his final NBA game on February 9, 2016. Notwithstanding the NBA's ruling, Bosh fought to resume his playing career for three years before announcing in February 2019 that he intended to retire. On March 26, the Heat retired his no. 1 jersey in a ceremony before a regular season game with the visiting Orlando Magic. Seeking to promote sports and education amongst youths in Dallas and Toronto, Bosh set up the Chris Bosh Foundation and speaks to youths about the benefits of reading. Born in Dallas, Texas, to Noel and Freida Bosh, Chris Bosh grew up in Texas. A family-oriented person, Bosh played basketball in the house with his younger brother, Joel.
By four years of age, he began learning how to dribble a basketball in the gym, where his dad played pick-up games. Although Bosh was always tall since youth and this allowed him to out-rebound others in basketball games, he only started learning the game around fourth grade at a playground near his grandmother's house. Apart from basketball, Bosh played baseball up until high school, preferring to play as a first baseman. Growing up, Bosh names his parents as the biggest influences on his personality and considered NBA superstar Kevin Garnett as his favorite athlete, modeling his play after him. Academically, Bosh always did well in school, but he began to garner significant attention from college recruiters when he led Lincoln High School in Dallas to the number one ranking in the country and the USA Today National Championship with a perfect 40–0 season; the teenager went on to lead Lincoln High to win the Class 4A state title as he racked up 23 points, 17 rebounds and nine blocks. Bosh was subsequently named High School Player of the Year by Basketball America.
With his combination of grades and basketball skills, Bosh was on a number of college recruiting lists. The University of Florida and the University of Memphis made serious attempts, but it was Paul Hewitt, coach of Georgia Tech, who made the best impression. Bosh felt Hewitt would look out for his best interests and respect his aspirations to play professional basketball. Bosh chose to follow the footsteps of his cousin and aunt and attended Georgia Tech to study graphic design and computer imaging, subsequently, management. There, he led the Yellow Jackets in averaging 15.6 points, 9.0 rebounds and 2.2 blocks in 31 games, led the Atlantic Coast Conference in field goal percentage, joining Antawn Jamison as the only freshmen to do so. Bosh intended to complete his degree, but by the end of the 2002–03 season, his strong performances convinced him that he was ready for the NBA, he entered the 2003 NBA draft. Bosh said in future interviews that although he misses his college days, he believes he made the right decision to pursue a professional career.
He said he intends to obtain a college degree in the future, to fulfill a promise made to his mother. In a strong draft class including future All-Stars LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade, Bosh was selected fourth overall by the Toronto Raptors in the 2003 NBA draft and was signed on July 8, 2003. Prior to his signing, other NBA teams made offers for Bosh as they knew Toronto needed a veteran scorer, Raptors star Vince Carter himself pressed for a trade. General Manager Glen Grunwald turned everyone down. In his rookie season, Bosh was forced to play out of position as the Raptors' starting center after Antonio Davis was traded to the Chicago Bulls. Night after night, the teenager with the "slim frame" battled against opponents who had a significant size and strength advantage over him. Bosh—who cited teammate Michael Curry as his mentor—was praised by his coaches for his heart, willingness to play through pain and injuries resulting from his lack of body strength compared to some of the league's strong forwards and centers.
Bosh's contributions were not unnoticed
