Chris Bosh earned his fifth consecutive NBA All-Star selection this season, solidifying his status as one of the top forwards in the NBA. Bosh, who has led the Raptors in points per game four straight seasons, is scoring at a career-best clip this season (24.0 points per game).
The 6-foot 10-inch Bosh joined the Raptors in 2003, after Toronto selected him with the fourth overall pick in the NBA Draft. He averaged 11.5 points and 7.4 rebounds per game in 2003-04 to garner NBA All-Rookie First Team honors. In 2006-07, Bosh was named to the All-NBA Second Team after tallying 22.6 points and 10.7 rebounds per game while leading the Raptors to their first Atlantic Division title. In 2007-08, he averaged 22.3 points per game to propel Toronto to a second consecutive playoff berth. Last year, Bosh tallied a career high 22.7 points per game and was one of two NBA players to average more than 20 points and 10 rebounds per game during the 2008-09 season.
Bosh came to the Raptors from Georgia Tech, where he led the Yellow Jackets in scoring, rebounding, blocked shots, and field goal percentage in his only season at the school. He became an Internet celebrity during the 2007-08 season after posting a humorous YouTube video in which he trumpeted his All-Star credentials to fans around the world.
