9. Chris Bosh – No. 4 in 2003 (Toronto)
Bosh is famously the forgotten man from the NBA’s 2003 Draft, living in the large shadows of LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Dwyane Wade. He hasn’t enjoyed the same success as Wade and James, but he has quietly become a better all-around player than Anthony.
He won a gold medal in Beijing, alongside Wade, James and Anthony, and has three All-Star appearances and a couple of All-NBA Team selections to his name already. He’s been incredibly consistent over the last three years as well, averaging 22.5 points and 9.5 rebounds in roughly seventy games per season.
The question is, should Bosh

Who do you think should be the #1?
