Chris Bosh
Notes: Second Team All-ACC, ACC Freshman of the Year
The Skinny:


Chris Bosh may be turning pro a little early, but given how he’s developed so far, it won’t be long until he becomes a productive NBA player, if not a star. The first thing one notices about Bosh is his combination of length and skill. Bosh is extremely mobile, and knows how to score either in the post or facing the basket. He is fundamentally sound in many ways, yet still has the athleticism to be explosive offensively. Defensively, Bosh can be an intimidating shot blocker and is solid on the boards. The big question with Bosh is his strength – can he effectively gain weight and muscle to battle the big boys down low at power forward in the NBA.

When Bosh entered high school, he was a gangly kid who essentially used his height to dominate down low. But he has quickly developed his God-given talents to become an extremely smooth, versatile, and skilled player. At best he could be a David Robinson, at worst he could be a Keon Clark. Either way, he’ll be a high lottery pick, likely in the Top Five.

Raptors need help inside and other than Milicic, Bosh is the big man on the board with the most potential. Inside, outside, offense, defense, Bosh has the ability to do it all. In fact, Bosh will remind Raptors fans of a former Raptor, Keon Clark, in many ways. He’ll need to build some muscle, but practicing against Antonio Davis everyday in practice will toughen him up in a hurry.

11/9/03 – Jed Tai – DFW All-Stars
Want the ultimate winner on the high school level last year in DFW? Look no further than Chris Bosh. Bosh was the centerpiece on Lincoln HS’s 40-0 state and mythical national championship team. Add in a 4-0 record in the Global Games in July – he led Team USA past Yugoslavia and New Jersey Nets draftee Nenad Krstic for the gold medal – and Bosh was undefeated on Texas soil. He finished off his busy summer helping USA Basketball to a bronze medal in the FIBA Men’s Junior World Championships in Venezuela. The 6’10” Bosh is a player built in the Kevin Garnett mold – long and lean, yet skilled and athletic – combination of size and skills that has pro scouts already drooling. He can do damage offensively down low or from the perimeter, and defensively he blocks about every shot that comes his way. Expectations are high for Bosh at Georgia Tech, where he should step into a starting role immediately. Starting at either center or power forward, he will compliment last year’s ACC Rookie of the Year (and fellow Global Games alumnus) Ed Nelson very well. Expect to see him average double figures in scoring and anchor the Yellow Jackets defense down low. He is one of the top candidates for this year’s ACC Rookie of the Year and ranks as our top choice for DFW native making an impact on the national scale. Look for him on TV playing against Duke and Maryland with Dick Vitale gushing about his pro potential (and lamenting about how he should stay in school) on a TV set near you this fall. Take a long look too, because if he continues to put some muscle on his bones, he may not be in college long as the NBA is already beckoning.
