LeBron James says he wouldn’t win his rings with Heat without Chris Bosh
Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James says he wouldn’t win his two rings with the Miami Heat without Chris Bosh.
Bosh is getting his No. 1 jersey retired by the Heat on Tuesday. LeBron and Bosh went to four-straight Finals during their time together in South Beach, going 2-2.

Chris Bosh was the third member of the Heat’s Big Three behind LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. The talented lefty was always the media’s punching bag during that four-year run, but everyone — including James — knew how important Bosh was to the team’s success.
Bosh averaged 17.3 points and 7.4 rebounds from 2010-2014, the four years he was teammates with James on the Heat. He made the All-Star team all four years.
Miami defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder and San Antonio Spurs in the 2012 and 2013 Finals, respectively. LeBron was named Finals MVP both times, but Bosh played at a high level as well and he grabbed the rebound in Game 6 versus the Spurs in the 2013 Finals which led to Ray Allen’s 3-pointer which tied the game.
Wade is going to get his No. 3 jersey retired by the Heat one day. James could get his No. 6 jersey retired as well. That Big Three era was a fun time for fans in Miami.
