Christopher Wesson Bosh (born March 24, 1984) is an American professional basketball player in the National Basketball Association who plays for the Toronto Raptors. Garnering an array of basketball accolades since his high school days, the power forward left college after one season to enter the 2003 NBA Draft. He was selected fourth overall by the Raptors in a very competitive draft class. Since his NBA career began Bosh has emerged as one of the most established young stars in the NBA. In the process, he has become a three-time NBA All-Star, been named to the All-NBA team, appeared for the USA National Team, and taken over former fan-favorite Vince Carter as the face and leader of the Raptors franchise. In the 2006-07 NBA season, Bosh led the Raptors to their first NBA Playoffs berth in five years, and their first ever division title. The following season, Bosh became Toronto’s all-time leader in rebounds, blocks, double doubles and free throws made and attempted.
