Miami Heat star LeBron James has congratulated his teammate Chris Bosh for earning a place on the Eastern Conference All-Star side.

Bosh joins the Eastern squad as a reserve, but the 29-year-old is still delighted to be part of the setup.

"It's still a big deal for me," Bosh told the Sun-Sentinel. "Every year it's a question mark for me, to be honest with you. I mean, I had to play a different role and I have to play well in that role, and it's changed every year that I've been here, and I still find a way to kind of get it done."

As well as LeBron, Bosh also joins fellow Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade in the squad, but it was the former who went out of his way to offer his congratulations with a photo collage post on Instagram.

LeBron posted the image alongside the message: "Congrats to my bro @chrisbosh on joining @dwyanewade & myself in N.O. for the All-Star game. I/We thank you so much fans!! You guys are the best! #Big3 #AllStars #StriveForGreatness"

All four of the photographs in the collage featured LeBron's "Big 3" – and the image has so far attracted over 215,000 likes, which isn't bad going at all.

This year's All-Star game takes place on February 16 at the New Orleans Arena in Louisiana.
