Chris Bosh is an American former professional basketball player. Nicknamed ‘Mr. Basketball,’ a title which he won in his high school, Bosh started winning titles when he was in high school. He left his studies mid-way to enter the ‘National Basketball Association’ (NBA) draft, and was signed by the ‘Toronto Raptors.’ While playing for Toronto, he achieved many titles, including ‘Player of the Week’ nine times, ‘Player of the Month’ once, and ‘NBA All-Star’ 11 times. Also an Olympic gold medal winner, Bosh left Toronto as its all-time leader in all major statistical categories—he was one of the three players in the league who had achieved 10,000 points, 4,500 rebounds, and 600 blocks in seven seasons with the ‘Raptors.’ He left Toronto to play for the ‘Miami Heat,’ but due to repeated injuries, he was eventually taken out from the team after a period of seven years. A family-oriented person, Bosh has started a foundation to promote sports and education amongst the youth in Toronto and Dallas. An avid reader, he speaks regularly at children’s groups about the benefits of reading. He also advocates computer literacy in schools.
