I’m not gonna lie and I’ll get right to it, I’m disappointed I won’t be in the HOF this year, especially with this amazing class of players I have looked up to throughout my career. BUT sometimes things don’t work out the way you want, and you HAVE to move on. You can’t sit around feeling sorry for yourself or blaming other people. You have to put in the work and get moving. Work towards your next goal or your next challenge. We’ve all been disappointed in the past, I know I have, especially when my career was cut short. But you can’t stop living your life. So I’m moving forward, will you? Life doesn’t stop‼️Let’s get it🙌🏿 Also, just wanted to say thank you to everyone who has shown me love the past few days. I’ve read all the comments, much appreciated ❤️
In 893 games with the Toronto Raptors and Heat, Chris Bosh averaged 19.2 points, 8.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists and a block while shooting 49.4 percent from the field, 33.5 percent from beyond the arc and 79.9 percent from the free-throw line.
Bosh made the All-Star team for 11 straight years. He was the fourth overall pick in the legendary 2003 draft and won two championships with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade on the Heat. Along with being an 11-time All-Star, Bosh made the All-NBA team in 2007 and was on the All-Rookie team in 2004.
Bosh was a walking double-double in his days with the Raptors. The lefty had to sacrifice his game with the Heat because of LeBron and Wade, but he was still an elite performer in South Beach.
The Heat retired Bosh’s No. 1 jersey last season. He made a joke during his speech about beating Wade to the punch. Wade, of course, will get his No. 3 jersey retired by the Heat.
It’s sad Chris Bosh had to end his career early due to blood clots, but the most important thing is that he’s healthy and living a great life with his family.
