This week’s conversation is with Chris Bosh, an 11-time NBA All-Star, 2-time Champion and the NBA’s first Global Ambassador of Basketball.
Chris fell in love with basketball at an early age and earned the prestigious “Mr. Basketball” title while still at Lincoln High School in Dallas, Texas.
A McDonald’s All-American, Chris was selected fourth overall by the Toronto Raptors after one year attending Georgia Tech.
Chris would eventually leave the Raptors to team up Lebron James and Dwyane Wade with the Miami Heat, where he would win two NBA championships, yet had his playing days cut short during his prime by a freak medical condition.
His extraordinary career ended not at a time of his choosing but “in a doctor’s office in the middle of the afternoon.”
Chris was forced to reckon with how to find meaning to carry forward, and that really sets the tone for this conversation.
We discuss what led to his success during his time in the league and how he found meaning in his life post-basketball - something I know many other athletes can relate to.
