Born Christopher Wesson Bosh on March 24, 1984, in Dallas, Texas, to Noel and Freida Bosh, Christopher Bosh began falling in love with the game of Basketball at around the age of four, having followed and watched his father play pick-up games.
He, however, started learning and playing basketball actively when he was in the fourth grade. He also played baseball but chose to concentrate on basketball when he entered high school.
In 2004, he founded the Chris Bosh Foundation to help the youth in academics and athletics. He is an avid reader, and regularly speaks at children’s groups about the benefits of reading.

Bosh attended Lincoln High School in Dallas where he excelled both academically and in sports. He graduated with honors and also led his school to the No. 1 ranking in the country, by helping it to win the USA Today National Championship with a perfect season of 40 wins and zero losses.
His performances during the season earned him numerous awards including the High School Player of the Year by Basketball America, Powerade Player of the Year in Texas, a first-team All-American by Parade, McDonald’s and EA Sports, and the “Mr. Basketball” title.
Many colleges tried to recruit the upcoming star Bosh. However, he opted to join Georgia Tech to study computer imaging, graphic design, and management.
On the sports side, he admired the school’s basketball team’s transition offense, but most importantly, he felt that its coach, Paul Hewitt, would look out for his interests and help guide him to play professional basketball. It also helped that his cousin and aunt were both alumni of the school.
In his first season as a freshman with the team, Bosh averaged 15.6 points, 9.0 rebounds, and 2.2 blocks in 31 games. He also led the Atlantic Coast Conference in field goal percentage, becoming one of only two freshmen to ever do so.
After that year, Bosh chose to leave college and play basketball professionally by entering the 2003 NBA Draft. He was selected by the Toronto Raptors with the fourth overall pick.
Bosh’s future Miami Heat teammates; Lebron James and Dwayne Wade, and Carmelo Anthony were selected ahead of him.

He also set a franchise record for most rebounds in a rookie season.
His performance did not go unnoticed as he was rewarded by being selected to the NBA All-Rookie First Team for the 2003–04 season. His coaches spoke very highly of him during this time, praising him for his willingness to play despite pain and injuries.
The following year, Bosh became the leader of the team following the departure of Vince Carter. That year, he improved on all his stats which led to him being awarded his first-ever NBA Eastern Conference Player of the Week title. He ended the 2004-05 season as the team’s leading scorer and leading rebounder.
From then on, Bosh grew from height to height; leading the team in different categories and getting selected to start the All-Star games, as well as being included in the All-NBA teams.
By 2010, Bosh had become the Toronto Raptors’ all-time leader in total points scored and in the number of double-doubles in a season.
The following season, Bosh and his teammates got their act together and this time, beat the Oklahoma City Thunder to win his first-ever NBA Championship. He became a consecutive NBA Championship winner the next season after Miami overcame the San Antonio Spurs in the 2012-13 season.
In the 2013-14 season, The Heat again breezed to the finals to face last year’s finalists, Spurs again. This time, they lost the series in five games which led to the end of the Big Three era in Miami.
