Who is Chris Bosh?

Chris Bosh is an American professional basketball player, currently a free agent eligible to sign with any club or franchise. Playing matches and winning titles since he was in high school, ‘Mr. Basketball’—the title he won in his high school—left his studies mid-way to enter National Basketball Association (NBA) draft, and was signed by the Toronto Raptors. While at 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 Miami Heat, but due to repeated injuries, he was eventually signed off from the organization after a stint of seven years. A family-oriented person, Bosh has started a foundation to promote sports and education amongst the youths in Toronto and Dallas. An avid reader himself, he speaks regularly at children’s groups about the benefits of reading. He also advocates computer literacy in schools.
