Congratulations to my brotha @chrisbosh for having his jersey retired last night. As a kid you dream about those moment and to see it happen for my man CB I couldn't be happier. I'm fortunate to have competed against you in practice everyday and blessed to have competed with you every game. There's no way I couldn't get better. From the start I've always said that you were the most important piece to our Big 3 run. People will never understand the level of mental toughness, accountability, and efficiency it took for you to be the all star you were in that roll. They don't know how much game you really had bra!!! Lol. 11x All Star, two time champion, Olympic gold medalists, first ballad hall of famer, and a brotha to the end homie!! #og #heatlifer

Haslem, 38, played with Bosh for six seasons with the Heat. During their time together, the team went to four straight NBA Finals and won back-to-back championships in 2012 and 2013.

As Haslem mentioned in his post, many considered Bosh the most important player within the superstar trio which also included LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. While Bosh didn’t take the big shots or average the glaring statistics, the veteran spaced out the floor, sacrificed stardom and was always reliable when the Heat needed him.

In his 13 seasons in the league, the power forward averaged 19.2 points and 8.5 rebounds per game.

Although it’s not official yet, there’s no doubt Haslem will one day have his jersey retired in the rafters next to Bosh’s as well.
