Chris Bosh: His Last Season in Toronto
Bosh really played like he needed a new contract in his last season with the Toronto Raptors. During that season, he showed his worth as a legitimate number one option and a player teams could use to build towards an NBA Championship. This was the last time we saw the great Chris Bosh be the clear-cut number one option on his respective team while in his prime. Man, was it a joy to behold.
The Raptors would not see the postseason that particular year. However, that was hardly Bosh’s fault. This fact had more to do with the inability to build around Chris Bosh. At the time, it was rather frustrating for Toronto as they did not possess a title at the time, (though it the wounds have certainly healed after last year’s Finals run). Regardless, Chris Bosh will always be considered one of the best Toronto Raptors players in team history.
