    Only generational talent should get in HOF so quickly after retirement. He wasn't even best at his position,let alone in NBA...

    Im a Spurs fan and in the moment that shot happened I was was mad and punched my tv as any sport fan would but looking back at it now I'm glad I witnessed a Legendary moment in Sports History It's surreal seeing both Bosh and Allen as Hall Of Famers now.

    God doesn’t want anybody in hell because He loves us, but you must understand why we deserve hell and why those who refuse to live under His authority will go there. He gave us the law (Ten Commandments) not to make us righteous, but rather to show us our sin (Romans 3:20). We’re not sinners because we sin, but rather we sin because we’re sinners. Sin is the nature of our flesh that we are born with due to the sin of Adam in the garden. For someone to be justified before God they have to be sinless. We’ve all sinned (Romans 3:23), and the the law demands death for those who sin (Romans 6:23). God is righteous, so He must punish our sin, which is what He did through His Son Jesus Christ on the cross. Jesus is Holy and sinless, yet He received our sin when He died on the cross, so that we can be righteous before God (2 Corinthians 5:21). When He died on the cross, He said “It is finished” (John 19:30), which means He paid the full price for all of your sins (past, present, and future) to be forgiven. He was buried and rose again from the dead. God will forgive anybody who puts their full trust in Jesus Christ alone for salvation. We aren’t saved based on our good deeds, but only by the grace of God (Ephesians 2:8-9). His precious blood that He shed is the only reason why we can be forgiven of our sins (Hebrews 9:22). If you confess that Jesus is Lord and believe that God raised Him from the dead, then you’ll be saved (Romans 10:9). You are born-again with the Spirit of Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17), and are not only legally justified before God, but also are accredited His righteous (Romans 4:24). Believers live for Christ now, so get to know Him through His Word. I recommend reading the book of Romans and the gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John), and watching Pastor Joseph Prince’s online videos!

    What an eloquent motivational inspiring humorous speaker Chris Bosh is. I know he is a great person on and off the court but every time I hear him speak he impresses me even more. Got to love his funny skit selling cars with a cowboy hat 😂. Or the "video Bosh (bombs)". It was sad to see him leave the NBA at age 31 after 11 All Stars appearances and 2 NBA Championships with the Heat (2012-2013) due to blood clots. Probably the main reason a Heat dynasty was split up. But like he said, "set backs are just the beginning." With 5 young children, a love of basketball and a flair for entertainment I see no reason why we shouldn't see him more on TV promoting the game he loves. Congrats CB. Much success to you and la familia. 👍

    THIS speech right here... I can't think of one better. Chris Bosh, we salute you!

    when you think of it? this means absolutely nothing. the masses of your people are still in poverty. and getting murdered by government cops and set up black people to put in prison because they look like you. so when you look at the wider spectrum this means nothing.
