I guess it's to say that Raptors aren't the US team. That and bigger attention from US people on him.

BTW, it looks like he is getting that attention (maybe this is old, dunno):

Chris Bosh has essentially become the face of the Toronto Raptors, after the departure of Vince Carter from the franchise’s ranks. As a three time All-Star, a member of the gold medal-winning USA Olympic Basketball Team at the Beijing 2008 Olympics, and basically one of the most dynamic young players in the NBA, Bosh is definitely a well-known player. Being such a well-regarded member of the NBA, Nike is now introducing a new colorway of the Hyperdunk based on Mr. Bosh. These sick Hyperdunks come in a nice white, red, and black colorway, giving these futuristic shoes a nice classic look, with a color scheme similar to many of Nike and Jordan Brand’s famous releases from the past. Furthermore, a CB4 label on the tongue, as well as a “4″ on the side of the kicks denotes Bosh’s influence on the design of these Hyperdunks, and adds a nice touch to the overall aesthetic. No word on a release of these as of yet, but Raptors fans should definitely take heart in the fact that Nike is definitely showing their ace some love.
