2. August 14, 2008, vs. Greece
We’re cheating just a bit here, but Bosh’s run to a gold medal with Team USA did happen when he was a member of the Raptors, so it counts for this list. Bosh was one of the more productive members of the “Redeem Team” that made the Americans gold medalists once again.
Bosh was able to show that even with a roster littered with Hall of Famers, his skills can shine through. In the semifinal against Greece, Bosh and Kobe Bryant led all scorers with 18 points, while Dwyane Wade and LeBron James were right behind him with 17 and 13, respectively.
Chris Bosh’s talent shone through on an international stage.
Bosh would follow this performance with a double-double in the gold medal game against Argentina, scoring 11 points while adding 10 rebounds. The 2008 team is one of the greatest Olympic squads ever, and Bosh played a huge role in making them what they were.
Considering the dominance that the Americans have had on the international basketball landscape over the years, it takes a lot to stand out on this stage. Proving that his game translates well to the international stage, Bosh should feel proud of what he accomplished for his country.
