8. Chris Bosh - 19.5

This goes without saying, but the Big 3 would never be the Big 3 if not for Chris Bosh embracing a role and transforming from a dreadlocked, low-post scoring machine to a floor-spacing center capable of anchoring a blitzing defense.

Bosh was a cornerstone of the greatest run in Heat history. From 2010 to 2014, the Heat went for four straight Finals and won two. Bosh signed with Miami the same summer as Dwyane Wade and LeBron James, creating the greatest free agent class in league history. (Riley having to share the Executive of the Year award with Chicago’s Gar Forman speaks to the level of league-wide vitriol for the Heat at that time.)

Anyway, Bosh. He averaged 18 points, 7.3 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 0.9 blocks in six seasons with the Heat. It would have been more if not for blood clots ending his career in 2017.

Still, Bosh achieved more in his 13 seasons than most players can dream of: 11 straight All-Star games, two championships, and the lasting image of his rebound in Game 6 of the 2013 Finals that led to Ray Allen’s historic corner 3.
