Bosh, who hasn’t played in a couple years, was a member of those dominant Miami Heat teams and won multiple championships down there with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. (RELATED: Dwyane Wade Reveals If He Will Take Massive Offer From Chinese Basketball Team)

The man was a star back in the day. He was so crispy with his left hand. It was like watching magic when he’d get to work scoring the ball.

Unfortunately, he suffered from blood clots, which cut his career short by several years. It makes you wonder what could have been if he had stayed healthy.

Could he have won a few more rings? Maybe. At the very least, he would have competed for some more. There aren’t exactly a ton of guys in the history of basketball with his skill set.

Massive dudes who are silky smooth don’t exactly grow on trees.

I hope he enjoys retirement because he’s absolutely earned it. Plus, he earned nearly $240 million during his playing days.

It wouldn’t seem like he’ll have to be worrying about money anytime soon.
