Former Miami Heat big man Chris Bosh is having his jersey retired by the Heat organization during tonight’s game versus the Orlando Magic.

Prior to the game, former Heat star LeBron James took to social media to shower his close friend and former teammate with love and support.

James also spoke about Bosh’s jersey retirement from the Los Angeles Lakers’ locker room.

“Congratulations to my man C. Bosh, C.B. I mean, listen, I don’t win my championships in Miami without him, without you,” James said. “What he meant to that team all those years that he was down there in Miami. When I was there, my four years, or even the couple years that I was gone. He was a true definition of what professional is all about. It was never about him, it was always about the team. Man I wish I could be there, man. To see that No. 1 (jersey) go into the rafters. I’ll definitely be watching, reposting, retweeting, whatever I gotta do to show my support and my love. C.B. forever.”

James and Bosh joined Dwyane Wade and the Heat in the summer of 2010.  Forming what would become known as the Big 3, the three All-Stars succeeded in advancing to four straight NBA Finals, winning two championships along the way.

Now, with his career cut short due to blood clots, Bosh is moving on from basketball for good.

Though Bosh’s career is over, it is great to see that the relationships he made along the way are still thriving.

With Wade set to retire this offseason, soon James will be the only key member of the Big 3 still competing in the NBA.
