Heat to retire Chris Bosh’s No. 1 jersey in March | NBA

Chris Bosh’s legacy will be immortalized in Miami.

The Heat announced Monday they will retire Bosh’s No. 1 jersey in a ceremony during halftime of the team’s March 26 matchup against the Magic.

“I am proud that Chris will have his No. 1 jersey retired and be honored inside the AmericanAirlines Arena with this recognition for the greatness as a player on the court and his tremendous contributions to the Miami community off the court,” Heat president Pat Riley said in a statement. “His name and jersey will hang forever and always.”

Bosh, who turns 35 next month, last appeared in an NBA game during the 2015-16 season. He was forced to step away from basketball as he dealt with blood clots that were believed to be career ending.

The 11-time All-Star was selected by the Raptors with the No. 4 overall pick of the 2003 draft but was traded from Toronto to Miami in 2010. He helped the Heat win back-to-back championships in 2012 and 2013 before re-signing with the team in 2014.

Bosh averaged 19.2 points, 8.5 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 893 career regular season games.
