Chris Bosh

Christopher Wesson Bosh (born March 24, 1984) is an American professional basketball player in the NBA who plays for the Toronto Raptors. Garnering an array of basketball accolades since his high school days, the power forward left college after one season to enter the 2003 NBA Draft. He was selected fourth overall by the Raptors in a very competitive draft class. Since his NBA career began Bosh has emerged as one of the most established young stars in the league. In the process, he has become a four-time NBA All-Star, been named to the All-NBA team, appeared for the US national team (with whom he won a gold medal at the 2008 Olympics), and taken over former fan-favorite Vince Carter as the face and leader of the Raptors franchise. In the 2006–07 season, Bosh led the Raptors to their first NBA Playoffs berth in five years, and their first ever division title. He is Toronto's all-time leader in rebounds, blocks, double doubles and free throws made and attempted.

The nickname also alludes to a cult movie of the same name. Off the
