Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh will be participating in his eighth NBA All-Star game after being named an all-star reserve by the coaches. With the eight all-star nods and a NBA championship under his belt, Bosh is starting to realize that his credentials are as good as anyone in the game.
Bosh believes are so good, in fact, that he deserves a spot in the NBA Hall of Fame.
“Hell, yeah, of course. I’ve been a Hall of Famer like four years ago,” the Miami Heat center told FOX Sports Florida after Friday’s 110-88 win over Detroit. “And I say that very serious, though. I’ve talked about it before with my friends.”
The only eligible player in history with eight or more NBA All-Star selections who is not in the Hall is eight-time pick Larry Foust, a center who averaged 13.7 points and 9.8 rebounds from 1950-62.
“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 is certainly one of the top big men at his position in the league and he knows that he is just as good, if not better, than his peers.
It isn’t often that you hear an active NBA player say they deserve to be in the Hall of Fame, but Bosh is no ordinary man and he has the numbers to back up his belief.
