During his recent appearance on the Club Shay Shay podcast hosted by ex-NFL Shannon Sharpe, former Toronto Raptors and Miami Heat All-Star forward Chris Bosh, who was forced to retire after multiple blood clots kept him from being medically cleared to play in the NBA, talked about transitioning to the Heat’s Big 3 and playing a complementary role to LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. 2008 Olympic gold medalist discusses the 3 having to sit down and say to LeBron, “We’re going to allow you to be the best player in the world.”

During his NBA career, Chris Bosh put up 19.2 points, 8.5 rebounds, and 2.0 assists per contest in 893 regular-season games. The two-time NBA champion also appeared in 89 playoff games, averaging 15.6 points along with 7.5 boards.
