ESPN columnist Zach Lowe, one of the best basketball writers in the business, wrote that Chris Bosh is the most “underappreciated player” in the game of basketball in a recent piece about who’s most deserving to be an All-Star this season.

“Bosh has easily been Miami’s best all-around player — and the most underappreciated player in the sport. He is the common denominator in almost all of the Heat’s best lineups, a tribute to his two-way versatility. Millsap gets the final starting spot by a nose after another splendid half-season of trick shots and rip steals, but you could swap him to the bench for Bosh without much of an argument.”

Lowe pegged Bosh as a reserve behind frontcourt starters LeBron James, Paul George, and Paul Millsap. The ridiculously likable Miami Heat big man will likely be headed to his 11th NBA All-Star Game but will need to be voted in as a reserve by the coaches after not getting enough fan votes to be a starter.
