Raptor Great Chris Bosh Set to be Honoured with Hall of Fame Nod
A member of the iconic 2003 NBA Draft, Chris Bosh was a fourth overall selection of the Toronto Raptors.
Just a kid out of Georgia Tech, Bosh very quickly grew into a superstar, capturing the hearts of Raptors fans all across the country of Canada.
He was intense, he wore his heart on his sleeve, and he was the star that the organization needed after the departure of Vince Carter. In the near 30-year history of the Raptors organization, Bosh is one of the team’s all-time greats, still holding numerous records and having his finger prints all over the history of this young yet exciting franchise. On Saturday evening, he was named a part of the 2021 Basketball Hall of Fame class alongside the likes of Chris Webber, Ben Wallace, and Paul Pierce.

Bosh spent seven seasons with the Raptors, making five All-Star appearances and averaging 20.2 points and 9.4 rebounds per game before moving onto Miami where he would win two NBA championships as part of the Big-3 alongside LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. Before his career abruptly ended due to blood clots issues, he was an 11-time All-Star, a member of an All-NBA team and an All-Rookie team, as well as an Olympic gold medalist.
His number was retired by the Miami Heat and one day, Bosh will surely get honoured by the Raptors organization as well. But until then, Raptors fans everywhere are looking forward to Bosh’s enshrinement in the Basketball Hall of Fame.
