My guest today is NBA Hall of Famer and author, Chris Bosh. Chris fell in love with basketball at an early age and earned the prestigious “Mr. Basketball” title while in high school. After getting drafted by the Toronto Raptors, he went on to become a five-time NBA All-Star before joining the Miami Heat and winning two NBA championships. More recently, he wrote his first book, “Letters to a Young Athlete”. We discuss the book, as well as the obstacles he overcame throughout his career, during this podcast episode.
The 5 questions I ask in this episode:
- How did watching basketball with your father, and playing with your friends, inspire you to pursue a career playing professionally?
- How did you deal with the pressure after losing to the Dallas Mavericks during the 2011 NBA Finals and how did it motivate you to win both the 2012 and 2013 championships?
- Early in your career, you had health issues that forced your retirement. How did you cope with the inability to continue playing basketball and then reinvent yourself?
- What did you learn during your time playing basketball that has helped you with this phase of your career?
- What’s your best piece of career advice?
