Heat honour Bosh with jersey retirement, tribute video

The Miami Heat recognised the contributions of Chris Bosh.

Miami retired the forward's jersey during half-time of their matchup against the Orlando Magic on Tuesday.

Team president Pat Riley introduced Bosh in front of the crowd just before his number one was lifted into the rafters.

The team also played a tribute video to honour him.

Bosh, 35, averaged 18.3 points and 7.3 rebounds per game in his six seasons with Miami.

The 11-time All-Star won a pair of NBA championships with the Heat in 2012 and 2013.

Unfortunately, Bosh was forced to step away from Miami in February 2016 after he was diagnosed with blood clots.

He made multiple unsuccessful attempts to return to the league and said last month he was no longer focusing on a comeback.
