18) Chris Bosh

While Chris Bosh is largely remembered as being the third member of the Miami Heat's Big 3 and more of a high-level role player, he was a big-time scorer during his Toronto days. During his peak, Bosh averaged 24 points per game, scored a career-high 44 points, and was one of the best mid-range shooters in the NBA before joining the Heat.

Even as a third option in Miami, playing alongside Dwayne Wade and LeBron James, Bosh was still a six-time all-star but focused more on defense and rebounding. Still, Bosh was one of the best-shooting big men in the NBA and was one of the first big men of his era to successfully go from being a mid-range shooter to being a stretch five.

Unfortunately, that didn't result in him scoring 50 points in a game, and his career ended prematurely thanks to reoccurring blood clots at the age of 32. That limited Bosh to fewer than 900 games and kept him from putting up big scoring numbers after LeBron left Miami. Fortunately, Bosh had more than enough accomplishments to be selected for the Hall of Fame.
