Keep believing that. O'Neal is the oldest 29 year old in the game. He hasn't been healthy in 4 years and he's no longer a franchise altering talent. He'll be serviceable for another 2-3 years. Bosh will bolt Toronto for a bigger market. I'm not saying that market will be Miami, but he's out of there.

Yah, also very out of the blue. At least reference the article that says the Heat are preparing for the summer of 2010 where free agents such as .... Bosh.... are going to be available.

I still give it 50/50. He has shown no indication of wanting to leave. If the Raptors stay competitive and consistently work to improve, I think he would be fine to stay. It is not like Bosh has a huge ego to feed by going to NY or a more marketable city. If the Raptors show no progress before 2010, then I wouldn't be surprised if he bolts. He won't leave for more marketability though, if he does it will be because he thinks he has better shot at a title somewhere else. There is too much time between now and then to guess though.

You can say that about any NBA star, just look at whats going on now. $$$ is the key, Carter before he left Toronto had the whole canadian market and the us and overseas( #1 in all star voting) , leaving a small market to a larger market doesnt necessarily transalte to more popularity or exposure. I'm sure every NBA player would love to play with the Lakers,Miami...but i also think NBA players want to go to a team and win irregardless of market...hopefully Toronto will be a top tier team when 2010 comes and i would't be shocked if Chris resigns and Toronto adds 1 of the free agents available at that time... Time will tell....

You're right. Bosh doesn't seem like the kind of guy that needs to be in a big market, so there is really no telling. Only time will tell.

The only thing your doing is assuming. Thats it. You assume he wants a bigger market yet there is no indication that is even on his mind. He is beloved sports figure in Toronto and Canada for that matter. He has one of the best GM's in the league behind him, a rising star pg in Calderon and they just got Jermaine O'neal. Your assumption is just as bad as the person that started this thread.

Not to mention, he is coming back from a torn meniscus. Not a torn ACL or MCL. I have had the exact surgery he had, I had a severe torn meniscus because i cointinued to player varsity ball in university on it. It began with a slight tear and only got worse after a year of playing on it. It only got worse the more you played on it, the same thing happened to JO. This injury is one that can be recoverd from quite easily with simple Arthroscopic surgery on his knee which he had done. Hell it has been known to improve the quality of your knee and your ability to do more on the knee than you ever could.. This surgery makes for a speedy recovery and one that does not limit your comback attempt in the way in which Amare or Brand dealt with. I gurantee he comes back better than ever. Its not like he broke his legs or something and is trying to make an impossible recovery. Its simple knee surgery. 30-45 mins and you are out of surgery.. JO will really prove all you wrong next season.

if the Raptors do not do anything for the next 3 years he will come to a team with a better city. Toronto is an awesome place but not much to do and its cold. i can see him in a place like New york or Brooklyn with Dwade or Lebron.

and he wont go to a team with d wade or lebron, all of these players (including bosh) will command 20 million a season, if you think 1 team will spend 40 million on 2 players youve got issues... they would have to take big pay cuts for that to ever happen

Yes there is...

Anyway, Bosh is the face of basketball in Canada and IMO he isn't going anywhere.

You make some good points. I dont see Wade, Bosh, Lebron sacaraficing that much money at this point. They all are very young and are in no need to take that pacut to win lile many veteran stars do later in their career in hopes of winning a title.

I personally would love to see him come back to Dallas however I don't see any way the Mavs could pull that off. I wouldn't be suprised to see him end up with the Knicks once he's a free agent. Bosh's numbers would be off the charts in D'Antoni's system.

umm have you heard of the boston celtics? the trio of garnett, allen, and pierce makes 60 mil. hell the combination of gasol, odom, and kobe costs over 50 million and both of these teams made it to the championship.

it's not like teams can't go over the salary cap, a lot of owners just don't want to pay luxury tax is all.

2010 is two years away....That is a LONG time in terms of the NBA. Two short years ago Jermaine O'Neal was considered one of the most valuable player's in the entire NBA. And now listen to what everyone is saying. So within these next two years a lot could change in favor or vice versa in terms of LeBron James, Chris Bosh, etc. staying with their current teams.

The only way Bosh will leave Toronto is if they stop being a contender and go back into the rebuilding stage. Which clearly wont happen with BC as our GM.

As for him leaving to the heat is pretty whack statement especially since they have Beasley and they are the same time of player. Its to early to say Beasley is at the same level of Bosh but from what I'm reading on him from his summer league games it seems he is the top draft pick in the 08' draft.

JO'neil isnt the only guy on the Raptors line up with superstar/ all*star qualities, Toronto has Jose with more playing time he will only prove himself more to the other team in the NBA that he is a player to reckon with. Kapono is the best spot up shooter in the league.

In other words I doubt Bosh will leave Toronto in 2010 as long as they give him max money.

Yeah mailmen jobs are nice...my boy does it he finishes whenever he finishes his route which he can do in 2 hours if he pushes himself or 4 hours and gets paid 70g a year...I would do that in a heart beat plus you staying in shape...or you could do like 6 hours of work and put mail in office buildings, apt, condos and you just stand there and put mail and get paid a little more...Just because the jobs are look down upon they are better then working for a corporation which goes bankrupts and lays you off and you got no pension plan.

Go to the league or stay home and watch!!!!!

ummmm have you ever heard of trades. They would have to have about 40 million in cap space for that off-season. They cannot go over the cap signing free agents. The Celtics had cap space and Traded to get Allen and KG. That is a lot different then signing them as Free Agents. Gasol and Odom...came in trades.

wtf, is every good player going to go to miami?!?! If Rose becomes what everyone thinks he will, and tyrus doesn't develop, i think bulls got a shot at landing him....got hughes contract expiring than and i expect Hinrich/Nocioni to be moved for expirings by than.

the original quote was about how a team wouldn't spend 40 million dollars alone on 2 players in general. there was no reference to how the team acquired the players. now you could assume it would be through free agency but in order for that to happen there would probably have to be a sign and trade a la rashard lewis last year anyway. and btw the celtics had ZERO cap space when the traded for their players. they had to throw in theo ratliffs contract to make the garnett deal work and then szcerbiak for the allen deal. so before you go around looking for ways to be a dick about insignificant details you should actually make sure your dickness is justified.

just saying.

The only reason he'd leave is if Raptors start sucking. That's why we got JO so we could win now and make the situation better for Bosh, which lures him to stay.
