View Full Version : Bosh asks Twitter followers: Should I stay, or should I go?

TORONTO (AP) -- Chris Bosh is asking his Twitter followers to help decide his NBA future.

The five-time All-Star posted two messages to his almost 96,000 followers Friday night, ending a week of silence with a post that read: "Been wanting to ask. Where should I go next season and why?"

About an hour later, Bosh posted a second message that read: "Ok... Let me rephrase the question. Should I stay or should I go?"

Bosh is expected to opt out of the final year of his contract with the Toronto Raptors, leaving more than $17 million on the table, in order to join a free agent class that could also include LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Amare Stoudemire.

The seven-year veteran averaged career-highs with 24 points and 10.8 rebounds this year.

Q1. Where should I play next year?


--correction--
Q2. Should I stay or go?



If people answer his original question, doesnt that take care of his second (revised) question?

First, I am no way a Raptors fan, nor do I even like them.

So with that being said, I find this to be a slap in the face to the Raptors and Raps fans. Seems like he is just thinking about himself (which yes I would do too and everyone on this board would as well:)), but the fact is, he is pushing the team and it's fans' to the side with this question. I know he is the "star" of that team, but dude needs to act like it and don't do stuff like posting franchise changing questions on a Twitter.

Why not? The Raptors' season has been over for a few weeks now. Is Bosh supposed to not think about his decision until July 1st?

Since that is the case, as a GM of the league, I wouldn't offer a huge contract to a guy who can't even get to the playoffs. But good luck to what ever team gets him.:rolleyes:

Ok, you better get started because there is no way he's going back to Toronto. And before you get on me and say "oh a knicks fan who thinks Bosh is going to NY", I actually think he's going to Miami. Especially because it's looking like Amare may resign in Phoenix.

I'm sorry that you're in denial but the first thing you as Raptors fans have to do is accept the fact that Bosh isn't coming back to Toronto. I mean look at his original question, he only rephrased it because he probably realized how it made Raptors fans feel.

Bargs, Derozan, Weems and Amir Johnson.

But I can't see any of them (maybe a little Demar) being a franchise player, and leading this team to victory.

So we don't have a player that's ready, Bargs said he's ready but he's inconsistent. No one wants a inconsistent leader.

But those players do have a load of potential, but we don't know if it's enough :shrug:

You think your team was tanking? hahahahhaaha. Wow, Nets fans are more delusional then I thought. Tanking means you win around 20 games and try to get the worst record in the NBA, NOT PUSHING THE RECORD FOR THE WORST TEAM EVER. Lol. Seriously, you almost witnessed the WORST TEAM EVER. That is not tanking, that is suckage. You think the Nets WANT to be the worst team ever?

Tanking is what the Heat and Celtics did, when they were the worst team in the NBA but not the worst team ever. No one wants that distinction. Your Nets were pretty close, what were they the 2nd worst team ever?

I mean when you tank, you try to have 15-20 wins and the worst record in the NBA. You DON'T try to be the worst team in NBA history. No, that was just suckage.

Besides, tanking doesn't mean you have to lose by 30 points every game.

I'm going to defend the Nets fan stating that the Nets are a better sitution. Although they had a horrible year, they have a lot of cap space and a high draft pick. Therefore, they have a great chance of making the playoffs next year whereas the Raptors cannot really make any big moves to help Bosh. The signings of Calderon, Turk and Bargs have not really worked out. However, if it was me, I would rather play in the city of Toronto than Newark. Honestly, Chris Bosh should be looking at New York, Chicago and Miami.

I think Miami first, then Chicago 2nd. I think Miami would be a little bit better because he will have Wade who is a proven champion/winner and won't have to wait for any young player to improve. He can go there and that team can be an immediate threat. I think they'll need to sign 1 more guy though....Wade and Bosh alone can't lead them to a title.

I think Miami first, then Chicago 2nd. I think Miami would be a little bit better because he will have Wade who is a proven champion/winner and won't have to wait for any young player to improve. He can go there and that team can be an immediate threat. I think they'll need to sign 1 more guy though....Wade and Bosh alone can't lead them to a title.

I agree but if they can get some cheap quality players then yes they could win a title. But that goes without saying.

wow, over analyzing it a little too much, he clearly upset toronto fans with his first tweet and then realized it sounded like toronto was not an option. He clearly made a mistake and fixed it with his second tweet. Do you really think he cares about the attention on twitter. At the end of the day Bosh will have fans wherever he goes, this was not a chance to grab attention or what not.If he wanted attention, he would have said that hes not going back to TO, but hey thats just my opinion.

Heat have Wade.

Chicago has both Noah and Rose.

chicago would definitely be first option over toronto for many reasons anyway

I think Bosh stays.

If he leaves, I will suck each and every single poster on this site.

And you can quote me on that.

You just want to suck some dick ;).

It's ok.

yea just surround them with decent scorers, defenders, 3pt shooters, and tough/gritty guys.
