Chris Bosh in the big time
(picture from NBA.com)
21 year old Chris Bosh was on the NBA's biggest stage last night in the 2006 NBA All-Star game and he aquitted himself very well - including a rave review by Doug Collins (even if the David Robinson comparison was a bit ... odd). Bosh finished with 8 points, 8 rebounds and 2 assists in only 17 minutes of play - and more impressively looked completely in place with the best in the world on the court with him.
Watching him last night was interesting for me, I still remember him as a skinny quiet kid who was barely regarded as a top 50 player in the summer before his senior season of high school - and wondering what his impact would be at Tech as a freshman after he commited. It's amazing how much someone can change in 5 years, because he's clearly one of the very best power forwards in the world now, and has a terrific future ahead of him.
Since most college basketball fans don't neccessarily follow the NBA closely, I put together a couple of clips from Bosh in the All-Star game last night, make sure to check out his tomahawk dunk on top of a defenseless Steve Nash. If the embedded player doesn't work, you can use this link.
