Default Chris Bosh declares himself Hall of Famer.

http://nesn.com/2013/01/chris-bosh-s...all-star-game/



“Hell, yeah, of course. I’ve been a Hall of Famer like four years ago,” Bosh told FOX Sports Florida. “And I say that very serious, though. I’ve talked about it before with my friends.

He's a HoFer guys, he's talked about it with his friends and they agreed.

He was widely considered a top 10 player in he league before he joined Miami.

24 & 10 while leading your team to the playoffs is nice, not hot worthy but it's silly to act like he has no chance especially with they way the HOF works


If he wasn't sacrificing his offense for the sake of Lebron, bosh could be a 22 &10 second option on a championship team

20 points per game, 9 rebounds, 50% shooting, 8 time allstar, Olympic gold medal, NBA champion. If he wins a few more rings he's a lock for the HoF

We understand this, we truly do. It's just bizarre for a player to say such a thing.. inferiority complex or something is in play here. He's a distant 3rd string for his team.. he's trying to reaffirm himself as an integral part to a championship team IMO. Still a decent guy and a HoF candidate, just changes my opinion of him ever so slightly.

Because he knows it's a joke. He's trolling the reporter and he's trolling you too.

This whole thread is more about the fact that he said it. It's a change in the era, the younger players care about stats and awards more than in generations past. They are also breaking that unspoken barrier and talking about their stats and accomplishments while they are still playing, it's just something that traditionalists aren't used to and don't like. We will see more and more of this as the years go on as there has been a huge value (both in dollars and respect) placed on stats nowadays.

BTW, he has a realistic shot at the HoF imo.

He will be, even if he doesn't deserve it and will ride piggy-back to get there. He's an 8-time all-star and I saw a stat the other day that said there is only one retired player in NBA history with that many ASG appearances who isn't in the HOF. Plus, the Heat will probably win one more title at the very least. He's a virtual lock.

24 & 10.8 and missed the playoffs. 22.6 & 10.7 and 22.3 & 8.7 the only two years (out of 7) he led his team to the playoffs, in the East.


He's a great player, he really is. He was never a top 10 player tho. The one season he made the 2nd Team he shouldn't have been 2nd. Carlos Boozer (who isn't as talented) had as good of a year. Carmelo was better than him. He should have made the 3rd Team.


He's got enough talent for the HOF and he's young and already an 8 time all-star (seems too many tho). He's got two Finals trips and a title. He's great, but it's funny to see people agree on him and have doubts on Grant Hill, who has done much more and at a higher level.



Bosh is closer to a top 25 player right now than he is top 15.
