The National Basketball Players Association announced Thursday that Bosh will host Friday's social-media presentation of awards voted upon by NBA players.
Bosh, who was waived last month by the Heat after being sidelined the past three seasons due to blood clots, has been making inroads in entertainment, including a recent appearance on CBS' The Late, Late Show with James Corden.
According to the release issued Thursday:
"The National Basketball Players Association (NBPA) announced today that 2017 Players Voice Awards will be revealed exclusively via social media tomorrow beginning at 11:00 a.m. ET.
"The Players Voice Awards are voted on solely by NBA players and feature many unique categories -- Best Dressed, Hardest to Guard, Player You Secretly Wish Was on Your Team, Clutch Performer and Best Social Media Follow -- in addition to MVP, Best Rookie, Best Defender and many others.
"Importantly, there are awards that recognize icons of the game -- the player who has the most Global Impact and the Most Influential Veteran.
"The awards and videos will be revealed via @theNBPA on Twitter, and NBPA.com will curate all of the content throughout the day. Fans can follow along using the hashtag #PlayersVoice."
According to the players' union, "voting took place at the end of the regular season and did not consider postseason performances."
The Players Voice Awards to be announced include:
-- Best Rookie
-- Comeback Player of the Year
-- Best Off the Bench
-- Best Defender
-- Hardest to Guard
-- Player You Secretly Wish Was On Your Team
-- Best Dressed
-- Home Court Advantage
-- Coach You’d Most Like to Play For
-- Clutch Performer
-- Best Social Media Follow
-- Most Influential Veteran
-- Global Impact
-- Most Valuable Player
-- Best Teammate (one per team)
The NBA in late June held its own awards show to name the winners of the league's official awards, many similar to those to be named by the players' balloting.
Instead of "Comeback Player," the NBA's Most Improved Player Award went to Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo.
The NBA's version "Best Rookie" went to Milwaukee Bucks wing Malcolm Brogdon.
The players' union will award "Coach You'd Most Like to Play For," after the NBA named Houston Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni as Coach of the Year.
In the equivalent of the union's "Best Dressed," the winner at the NBA's Award Show of
Best Style went to Westbrook.
