Chris Bosh ended last season collapsed in an AmericanAirlines Arena hallway, dazed and despondent after the devastating Finals defeat to Dallas.

He ended this season smiling with the championship trophy in one hand and his seven-week-old baby in the other, the euphoric culmination of the two most memorable months of his life.

A position shift to center.

The birth of a son, Jackson.

A painful injury that sidelined him nine games this postseason.

A splendid performance in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
