Chris Bosh Bio
Chris Bosh is one of the funniest, coolest players in the NBA. He could've been a talk show host, politician or comedian! Remember his video before the 2007 All-Star Game? He pretended to be a used-car salesman who begged fans to vote him onto the team!
Luckily for his fans, Chris chose basketball rather than selling cars for his career! For now, at least, he seems perfectly happy to be the best player and team captain for the Toronto Raptors, who chose him with the fourth pick in the 2003 NBA Draft. The 6-10 forward likes to win the game more than anything else.
Too Cool For School
Few players have the ability to play at a high level and be the leader of their teams, but Chris is one of the exceptions. Born on March 24, 1984, in Dallas, Texas, he was captain for his high school basketball team in his junior and senior teams. In his final year, the team had a 40-0 record and captured the state title. Oh, and he also graduated with honors.
Chris starred at Georgia Tech University before he turned pro. It only took four seasons for him to have more points, free throws, rebounds and blocked shots than any other player in the Raps' history. In the dictionary, the word "consistent" should have his picture next to it. In the last four season,s he averaged 22.7, 22.3, 22.6 and 22.5 points per game.
It usually takes a while for a young player to become a leader, but at 25 years of age, Chris welcomes the challenge.
