Miami Heat News: Heat to Bestow Ultimate Honor Upon Chris Bosh on March 26
- Updated: February 4, 2019
Bosh spent six seasons with the Heat (2010-16), where he won two NBA championships and was named to the NBA All-Star Game six times. During those six seasons, the 34-year-old averaged 18.0 points and 7.3 rebounds per game.
Heat president Pat Riley had lots to say about the announcement.
“I am proud that Chris will have his No. 1 jersey retired and be honored inside the American Airlines Arena with this recognition for the greatness as a player on the court and his tremendous contributions to the Miami community off the court,” said Riley. “His name and jersey will hang forever and always.”
The Georgia Tech product hasn’t played in the NBA since Feb. 9, 2016 because of blood clots. Throughout his career, Bosh averaged 19.2 points and 8.5 rebounds per game.
On Twitter, the Heat posted a video to celebrate the announcement and get people excited for the ceremony.
It’s good to see that Bosh’s efforts are being recognized in such a memorable way and that his impact on the organization will be remembered for a long time.
