Bosh spent his spent his Raptors career putting up big stats for lottery teams. He was above .500 only once. Then he ran off to Miami for a couple of freebie rings as the 3rd wheel for LeBron & Wade.
He was gifted 11 straight All-Star appearances, because there was hardly any competition for big men in the East. His biggest competition was an aging Kevin Garnett. In the West, it was blood bath. Prime Garnett, prime Dirk, prime Duncan, Amare, Pau, Aldridge, Randolph...
If Bosh had spent his career in the West, he'd have maybe 3 All-Stars in his entire career. And people wouldn't even think of him as a Hall-of-Famer. He'd be on the same level as Zach Randolph.
