Career: Georgia Tech (USA-NCAA, 2002-03), Toronto Raptors (USA-NBA, 2003-08)
Chris Bosh has quietly emerged into one of the NBA’s top superstars. Selected for the last three NBA Eastern Conference All-Star teams and named a starter in the 2007 and 2008 mid-season classics, Bosh, the number four draft pick of the Toronto Raptors in the 2003 Draft, over the past three seasons has averaged striking statistics of 22.5 points and 9.6 rebounds per game, while shooting 49.8 percent from the floor. A member of the 2006 U.S. World Championship Team that won bronze, he averaged 6.8 ppg. and 4.0 rpg. for the red, white and blue, while shooting a team leading 65.4 percent from the field, the sixth highest among all competitors at the World Championship. He missed playing in the 2007 FIBA Americas Championship because of plantar fasciitis in his left foot, but now back healthy, Bosh’s contributions to the red, white and blue will be a key component in the USA success formula.
