As part of Raptors Rapture’s “Chris Bosh week” we remember Bosh’s time with the Toronto Raptors, including his five most important moments.

Chris Bosh had a career worthy of entrance to the Hall of Fame before it was derailed due to blood clots. He played 13 seasons combined between the Toronto Raptors and Miami Heat. In that time he was an 11-time all-star (five of which as a Raptor) and a two-time NBA champion.

In his career, he played nearly 900 games and averaged 19.2 points, 8.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists, and 1.0 blocks per game. He was one of the most explosive and important Raptors, not only in his seven-year tenure with the franchise but all time.

Bosh owns a number of Raptors records. He is the all-time rebounds leader. He has the most blocks and even owns the best defensive win shares. He is also second in total points and points per game. His position on these leaderboards speaks volumes to his ability and impact on the organization.

Bosh was a connection between the past and the future of the franchise. He played with two of the other greatest all-time Raptors during his residence with them.

He joined the league and played his rookie season with Vince Carter. Before he departed to join the Heat, he also played with DeMar DeRozan. Bookended by two of the best, Bosh certainly made his time with Dinos memorable.

With Bosh now being honoured by having his jersey retired by Miami, we will look back at five of his most important moments with Toronto.
