Where are they now - Chris Bosh

Nice article on Bosh in the AJC.

However, all is not well with the Raptors. Check out this story about the pressure to win.

More on Bosh

- ".....And rookie Chris Bosh, the fourth pick in the June entry draft, is exceeding all expectations with a steady, mistake-free style spiced with a flourishing offensive side." - The Globe and Mail

- Here are some comments from Bosh after a recent poor Raptors performance.

- Here is a story about the Raptors problems at center and how Bosh has to be the power forward of the future, not center.

- Here's a story mentioning how Bosh has helped build optimism again in Toronto. Here is an excerpt "......Rookie Chris Bosh has given Raptors fans something they haven’t had for a couple of seasons… optimism. The rail-thin youngster may look like Keon Clark but he sure doesn’t play like him. Watching Bosh on the hardwood, it is hard to believe at times that he is just a 19-year-old rookie. He possesses court awareness and basketball knowledge that even many wily veterans lack. Bosh always seems to be in the right place at the right time and has shown the willingness and ability to step up in the clutch (such as the three-pointer that sent Sunday’s game one week ago against Houston into overtime). Once he bulks up a bit, Bosh might look and play a lot like Indiana superstar Jermaine O’Neal. Bosh is not quite as animated and fiery as O’Neal - his demeanor is actually a lot more like that of Tim Duncan - but he has the skills to play just a notch below those two someday. Not bad considering Duncan and O’Neal happen to be the best forwards in their respective conferences. "

- More on the fact that the only 2 players NOT on the trading block in Toronto are Vince Carter and Chris Bosh.

- Meanwhile, Bosh may actually try his hand at acting in the off-season, in a movie that Carmello Anthony will play the lead. Click here for the exciting details.
