Bosh becomes just the third player in Raptors history to make it to the Hall of Fame, joining Tracy McGrady and Hakeem Olajuwon, with his tenure in Toronto the longest among the trio, earning five All-Star selections with the team who drafted him.

Earning 11 All-Star selections, one All-NBA selection (Second Team 2007), and winning an Olympic gold medal in 2008, Bosh's career was cut short in 2016 after he was forced to retire early due to blood clots, but the Texas-native built a stellar resume over his 13-year career.
The 37-year-old helped re-define the power forward position and laid the foundation for the modern NBA big man with his floor-spacing ability and two-way play, a key part of the Heat championship runs.
