    What's with Bosh?

    What is it with Chris bosh that makes him effective at times and so ineffective at others. Is it the game plan? The opponents? His conditioning? Or is it mostly mental?

    Take any great power forward and tell them forget the post and just stand in the corner and shoot 3's IF we decide to pass it to you and see what happens.....

    As Charles Barkley pointed out last night after the game: Boris Diaw is what's up with Bosh. An extremely effective matchup by Pop.

    bosh was always a face up guy, never really did anything in the post.

    There's a big difference between facing up in the Karl Malone area and camping out at the three point line.

    Miami basically uses Bosh as a decoy to space the floor for Lebron and Wade.

    He plays the role he's been given.

    but hopefully we can use his expiring, if not at least we unloaded Novak's deal...

    LBJ took his balls from him and made him nothing more than a spot up shooter.

    I guess LeBron prevents him from rebounding and protecting the paint too.
    I think its mostly mental with him. At times I see a really aggressive bosh, and other times he's so soft. Its like one game he can make huge stops at the rim and the next game he's standing there watching.

    I would agree, except its not the first time we've seen bosh be so ineffective. So you're saying he struggles against defenders like diaw? What do you think makes diaw so effective on bosh?

    In games 1 and 2 he had 40 and 39 touches, in game 3 he had 12...

    I don't know what it was in game 4, but it wasn't a lot either. He's shooting .595/.625/.889 in the series. I'd say the biggest problem with Bosh is how often they decide to feature him vs turning him into a decoy.

    Maybe he is mad because he thinks he will have to take another paycut

    If you're not playing in the paint how can you be expected to crash and defend it? Miami is using him like a perimeter player, that isn't his fault.

    Recall the game last series against Indy where they actually made a concerted effort to feed him the ball in his spots? He ended up with what like 27 15? Then we get to the finals and he's back to minimal touches every game, it's a joke...

    I'm not talking specifically this series though, I'm talking bosh in the playoffs since joining Miami. He's gone ghost way too many times. No fight at all.
    Shooting is one thing, but no hustle, rebounding, shot blocking, running the floor. Everything he's supposed to do as a big man gets ignored at times.

    The way you talk abut him its like you think spot told him to go stand in the corner and never move a muscle until he has to shoot. He's not doing a good job protecting the rim. He tries, but too too softly.
