Chris Bosh's All-Star Smash Hit Video
Dunno if you've seen Lincoln High School grad Chris Bosh's YouTube sensation, in which the Toronto Raptor begs you to send him to the NBA All-Star Game in New Orleans on February 17. Turns out, some 447,300 have peeked at the video since its posting late last month, and today Sports Illustrated takes notice with a behind-the-scenes look at the Interwebs sensation in which the Dallas native channels "his inner used-car salesman in a pronounced Texas drawl." Here's Richie's terrific piece about Bosh from September '06, and, lookie there, Bosh also has a blog. --Robert Wilonsky
