Heat Chris Bosh Believes Hes a surefire Hall of Famer

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO BOSH

Quote:
Miami Heat center Chris Bosh was selected to the All-Star team as a reserve by the coaches, marking the eighth time he’s received the honor in his 10 NBA seasons.

That, along with the championship ring he earned a season ago might mean he’s already assured himself a spot in the Basketball Hall of Fame.

Bosh believes so, anyway. And actually, the numbers are on his side.

From Chris Tomasson of FOX Sports Florida:

“Hell, yeah, of course. I’ve been a Hall of Famer like four years ago,” the Miami Heat center told FOX Sports Florida after Friday’s 110-88 win over Detroit. “And I say that very serious, though. I’ve talked about it before with my friends.”

The only eligible player in history with eight or more NBA All-Star selections who is not in the Hall is eight-time pick Larry Foust, a center who averaged 13.7 points and 9.8 rebounds from 1950-62.

“He’s on the right path,” said Heat guard Dwyane Wade. “To be in a position where he has a lot of years left, he has a championship under his belt. If we can continue to get more and he can continue to be productive, no question about it.”

It’s rare to hear players still in their prime be so brash about their legacy like this, but Bosh is an intelligent guy who likely knows his place in the game.

It’s also worth noting that most players aren’t asked about their Hall of Fame chances this way, and with good reason. Checking in with the obvious choices — i.e., every active player with more than eight career All-Star appearances — wouldn’t make sense, as all of the names on that list are no-brainer selections.

Where it starts to get interesting is when you take a look at the only other active player with eight All-Star appearances, and that’s Vince Carter. Should he be feeling as confident as Bosh is about his own Hall of Fame chances?

if Carter had stayed with us I could have seen him making it as I could have seen us winning a championship if managed right. Bosh put up big numbers for most of his career, in multiple facets of the game, and was the catalyst to the heat winning the championships last season. he deserves it.

He's got a long ways to go, but if he continues to play as he has been until he hits 34 he should be in the HOF. He will likely have a couple of titles under his belt and putting up very good stats as well. But his comments are just plain wrong. HOFer as of 4 years ago? You're not Lebron, Chris.

ball don't lie, do you think lebron should be in talks of best ever if he pulls a couple more titles while playing at such an absurd level for another 5 years or so?

Jack Armstrong said it best, if you have to say this you have an inferiority complex.

It wasn't about him having to say anything. He answered a question. He answered honestly, although stupidly. Could be big ego. Big whoop. Could be an inferiority complex. So what? He plays the right way. He just needs to continue to do that. Which is what a smart answer would have been. But do we really need more cliche answers?

That's true, it certainly makes things more interesting, but when Wade and Lebron wouldn't even answer like that, why is he despite being the worst of the three. For me this just shows why he left, he's petty in a way, wanting the spotlight in a childish way. I could be wrong but I don't think his main reason to go to Miami was in fact a championship. I think he wanted more notority first and foremost.

Like I said, the good answer, the smart answer is also a cliche. I have nothing against the honesty. It doesn't hurt anyone or anything.

Maybe not, but I meant regarding whose getting into the hall of fame. You can be sure that Wade is ahead of him in that regard.

I think he's a hall of famer. Champion, Olympic gold, 8 time all star. Probably not 1st ballot yet but by the time he retires he should be 1st ballot. Another ring in his prime and a few all-nba teams or all star games would do it.

The weak spot is that he has been all-nba only once. Which makes his 8 all star seasons look weaker. But I think he's all-nba this year. Love's out, Pau's not good, Dirk's injured, Aldridge hasn't been great. I think LeBron, Melo, Durant, Blake, Bosh, ZBO will be all-nba forwards this year.

By the time he retires he'll be 1st ballot.

He'll be a HOFer IMO.

10+ all star appearances, championship, likely 20k + career points.
