Chris Bosh says he is a 'lock' for Hall of Fame


While Dwyane Wade and LeBron James receive most of the headlines for the Miami Heat, there is one player who often gets overlooked: Chris Bosh.

The Heat big man is headed to his eighth career NBA All-Star Game next month and already has an NBA Championship under his belt. He boasts a career average of 19.7 points and 9.0 rebounds per game, which includes 17.2 PPG and 7.2 rebounds during this season.

Are those credentials enough to get Bosh into the National Basketball Hall of Fame?

“Hell, yeah, of course. I’ve been a Hall of Famer like four years ago,” Bosh told Fox Sports Florida. “And I say that very serious, though. I’ve talked about it before with my friends.”

Well, there you go, straight from the man himself. The 28-year old certainly doesn't lack confidence.

However, his teammate took a more conservative and humble approach when asked of Bosh's Hall of Fame worthiness.

“He’s on the right path,” said Heat guard Dwyane Wade. “To be in a position where he has a lot of years left, he has a championship under his belt. If we can continue to get more and he can continue to be productive, no question about it.”

Bosh, a native of Dallas, was the fourth overall pick in the 2004 NBA Draft by the Toronto Raptors.

He played in Toronto for seven seasons before joining Wade and James in Miami prior to the 2010-11 season. This year marks the third for Bosh with the Heat.
