Chris Bosh is going back to Toronto! Only...it's for the NBA All-Star game. Bosh was chosen to be one of 7 reserves for the All-Star game on February 14 for the Eastern Conference. It will be Bosh's 11th straight season with the honor of being on the team and his sixth with the Miami Heat.

Bosh will be joined on the East team with starters -- Dwyane Wade, Kyle Lowry, LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Paul George, and also with the other reserves announced tonight -- Jimmy Butler, Andre Drummond, John Wall, Paul Millsap, DeMar DeRozan and Isaiah Thomas.

Last year, the All-Star Game was the last game Bosh played before being diagnosed with his blood clot issue which ultimately ended his season. He played 44 games. He's already played 46 so far this year.

This season, Bosh is averaging 19.2 PPG and 7.6 RPG. He's also averaging the most assists (2.5) in any year that he has had with the Miami Heat. He's helped Miami to a 25-21 record.

Join us in congratulating Chris Bosh!
