Has anyone heard anything on Bosh? What are realistic S+T options? Where has he narrowed down playing? I have heard speculation I am just wondering if anyone has heard anything solid regarding where Bosh goes. I think this whole Free Agent extravaganza strongly sways on what he decides to do first, so instead of talking about Lebron we should focus on Bosh for a bit.

1. To Miami with Wade.
2. To NY with Joe.
3. To the Thunder.

Not sure. I see him going to Miami, or possibly OKC. I don't think he wants to play for Chicago, and he's definitely leaving Toronto. Nobody really wants to go and contend in New York right now either, so I'm sure he's ruling that out, unless he's going with some other All-stars.

Listen Chicago makes sense this is why Rose is a star in the making that could even come close to Lebron talent level. Noah a young Center to anchor your defense for years. Deng if u choose to keep him on of the key players needed for a championship team a third scorer. Kirk if u choose to keep him a vet who plays defense and back-up PG who can run the offense while Rose is out less pressure on Lebron to handle the rock when Rose is out. Taj Gibson the Joe Smith or Haslem PF on the team who will stick his nose in the paint and get you rebounds and points. James Johnson the unknown player with ability to become a good player in this league with a good offseason look for him to be a future 6th man who can score, defend, and pass. Brad Miller will most likely resign with the Bulls at the min. You have money left to sign a number of 3pt shooters left on free agency my pick Anthony Morrow cuz i think he wont be with the warriors next year or Mike Miller. And the trade possiblites to get a post player with Deng and Kirk and a 1st round pick. Any way this team would be a good 8 man rotation team. Dnt look at how the team looks when it doesnt have a Lebron player on the team but how it will look after that when u add more players around him. Remeber u jus cant make one splash and be done u have to had on to the splash and make it bigger if u want to win anything. Plus the owner said he would go into the tax if its means team is a championship contender. And Lebron will make u a championship contender its up to u to finish the puzzle.















Bosh is going to Chicago if Lebron isnt. Rumors has it he said he only wants to go to 2 teams Chicago and Miami.

Wherever he goes, it will become more clear how overrated he is...not trying to just throw blind bashes at him, I just don't think his game is conducive to winning.

With that said, I have no idea where he'll go. For LeBron's sake, I hope he doesn't fallow LeBron.

I could definately see this, Gibson is a stud and cheap while Deng can give you offense and a Veteran that has been to the playoffs more then once. I was hoping it would be Deng and hinrich for Bosh, then they look for a 3 point SG and fill out the rest of the bench rather cheaply. Everyone is talking about money and cap tax but Reinsdorf isn't hurting for money, he's in the process of buying his third proffessional franchise and has won championships with the two he already has. My dream scenario would be S+T Deng and Hinrich for Bosh, go after Lebron, then sign a Morrow or Korver type. I don't think it's unrealistic if they can get Bosh first.

Defensively he needs to get better, he's more on the soft side, so don't think he will. I can agree with your argument for now, but he really hasn't had a great team put around him.

you seem to like stats. How about you look at the Playoff stats bud? From the looks of it Bosh has made it twice and played a total of 11 games. Amare has made it 5 times and played more and has quadrupled his amount of games.

Amare's best playoffs

15 G / 29.9 PPG / 10.7 RPG / .616 TS%

Bosh's best playoffs

5 G / 24.0 PPG / 9.0 RPG / .558 TS%

Their careers are practically the same until you count the part of the season that really counts, and then Amare totally rapes him. The sad thing is, Toronto is in the weaker conference.

Have you noticed who has played with Amare down in PHX and who has played with Bosh in Toronto? How are you going to bring up who went to the playoffs more. Outside of 3 players there isn't anyone who can just carry their team into the playoffs without a decent supporting cast.

I've been seeing a lot of stuff that said the Lakers are his first choice. Chicago and Miami are up there too. I think the Bulls are willing to give up more solid players if only to create more cap in a sign n trade then most other teams. Therefore it would make a lot of sense for Toronto to deal with them for say Deng and Gibson, or Hinrich and Gibson, or Hinrich and Deng. But a Bynum to the Raptors straight up makes a lot of sense too.

For some reason, I think Lebron is going to Miami with Wade, Bosh is going to Chicago with Rose, and New York wasted all its time trying to bring in James. New York will still bring in some serious talent though. Maybe instead of two studs, they bring in three serious players for a little under the max? What do you think?

In my opinion, all of the teams' situations work.

no way in hell Bosh is a better option than Amare. He's a good player and all but there's a fine line between them.

Yeah, 1 is younger, a better rebounder, defender, & gets to the line more.

I keep seeing conflicting things. I see people say that he wants to be the star of whatever team he goes to. And I also see people saying he wants to pair up with Lebron.

Which is true?

Listen Chicago makes sense this is why Rose is a star in the making that could even come close to Lebron talent level. Noah a young Center to anchor your defense for years. Deng if u choose to keep him on of the key players needed for a championship team a third scorer. Kirk if u choose to keep him a vet who plays defense and back-up PG who can run the offense while Rose is out less pressure on Lebron to handle the rock when Rose is out. Taj Gibson the Joe Smith or Haslem PF on the team who will stick his nose in the paint and get you rebounds and points. James Johnson the unknown player with ability to become a good player in this league with a good offseason look for him to be a future 6th man who can score, defend, and pass. Brad Miller will most likely resign with the Bulls at the min. You have money left to sign a number of 3pt shooters left on free agency my pick Anthony Morrow cuz i think he wont be with the warriors next year or Mike Miller. And the trade possiblites to get a post player with Deng and Kirk and a 1st round pick. Any way this team would be a good 8 man rotation team. Dnt look at how the team looks when it doesnt have a Lebron player on the team but how it will look after that when u add more players around him. Remeber u jus cant make one splash and be done u have to had on to the splash and make it bigger if u want to win anything. Plus the owner said he would go into the tax if its means team is a championship contender. And Lebron will make u a championship contender its up to u to finish the puzzle.

I'm down in Houston and seriously for the past year all I've heard about is how Bosh is going to come to Houston. He wants to get out of Canada and he's from Texas, and since SA and Dallas already have all star PFs I doubt he'd go there. Also the Raps are pretty desperate to make a sign and trade so they get something out of it. The Rockets have accumulated quite a few good prospects who don't make a lot of money right now, they also have a few draft picks that are pretty appealing. I understand that whichever team LeBron or DWade end up on they'll make them better right away. However if you were to add Bosh to the Rockets and make few changes in the process a starting lineup would look something like this...

Brooks
Martin
Ariza
Bosh
Yao

In Houston we say this every year now, but if everyone stays healthy I can honestly say without being a homer that team is a championship contender. If LeBron goes to the Knicks with any other superstar they still aren't a contender but they will make the playoffs. If the Knicks can swing it and get LeBron and that other superstar the rest of their roster will be depleted and they'll have no bench.

Do some research. If the Knicks can land two big time free agents, not only will their starting lineup be extremely well rounded, they will also have depth. Tony Douglas is the perfect compliment to Lebron. He is not a true PG, so Lebron can handle the ball 90% of the time. Douglas on the other hand is an excellent defender and excels at getting to the hoop. Chandler and Walker coming off the bench will provide an immediate spark. They are both athletic, can shoot from mid-range, and can even stretch the floor with the three-ball. The Knicks are also looking to bring back Earl Barron who had a very solid end to the season. Many people also forget that D"Antoni plays an 8 man rotation on most nights so chances are you are not going to see the 11th and 12th guys very often.

Except your team will have starters who are vets compared to what Jersey was playing. You might as well go in a full rebuild mode if he does leave because Hedo is only getting older. The longer you guys delay moving your older assets, the less value you'll get in the end.

Chris Bosh: Sources who spent time this month with Chris Bosh on the West Coast say Bosh has decided that he will not be returning to Toronto.

That's not necessarily a shock, but the fact Bosh is not even willing to listen to Toronto's plan says volumes about where things ended in Toronto.

Raptors' sources confirmed last week they doubted Bosh returned either.

It seems both sides are at peace with the break up and are ready to move on.

Sources near the situation say Toronto is still likely going to get assets in return for Bosh and with Miami having such interest they could package a Michael Beasley in a deal and reduce Toronto's costs, while giving them a very similar player - Michael Beasley is listed as a 6-10 235 pound forward versus Chris Bosh, at 6-10 245 pounds. Bosh measured in at the NBA Draft Combine in 2003 at 6' 10.25"... Beasley at 6' 7" two years ago... without shoes. Both are face up forwards, that are offensive minded.


The Houston Rockets are said to have Bosh at the top of their board, and with so many inexpensive pieces, Houston could be interesting. The one thing Houston cannot offer is a deal that seriously reduces Toronto's luxury tax exposure, which teams under the cap like Miami, New York or Chicago can.

Bosh is truly the first major name in this free agent class to be truly available, it will be interesting to see how much interest there is league-wide in Bosh, especially when teams can start talking with him in July.

One of the best possible sign-and-trades I've overheard is Bosh to Los Angeles for Bynum and Walton. Toronto doesn't want to lose him for nothing, which makes the deal more likely. Bynum gives Toronto a defensive anchor in the middle. It gives them a similar set-up to Orlando. Finally, Andrea Bargnani can play at power forward, where he is more suited.
The Lakers get the best front court in the NBA. Kobe can become a point guard as he grows older and slower. He can average 15 points per game with Bosh and Pau, and the Lakers will still win championships.

I don't agree with that. If B-Co doesn't see anything useful coming back to us he doesn't have to do a S&T, he can tell Bosh to just sign with them. Then he loses the $30m, Bosh isn't stupid, he won't want to leave that money on the table.

PM ETChris Bosh | Raptors Top Email Bosh's new home?
Chicago. The Bulls desperately need a scorer, be it a shooting guard or power forward, so Bosh figures to hear from the Bulls. It's been reported he could follow LeBron James to Chicago.New York. The Knicks will have room for two max free agents, and he could pair with LeBron James in the Big Apple.Miami Dwyane Wade is looking for a big-man running mate, but that also could be Amare Stoudemire or Carlos Boozer.Los Angeles Lakers. Andrew Bynum could be sent back in a sign-and-trade, something that was rumored at the trade deadline. Bosh also sat courtside at a Lakers playoff game this postseason.Toronto. The Raptors are reportedly on Bosh's list, but it's unlikely he'll return to the team next season.
New Jersey, Los Angeles Clippers, Houston, Dallas and Oklahoma City. All teams with either money for a max free agent or available sign-and-trade chips, but none figures to be in the mix.As we noted Friday and was confirmed by Raptors GM Bryan Colangelo, Chris Bosh's agent has reportedly given the Raptors a list of teams he's willing to play for via a sign-and-trade.

ESPN Insider Chad Ford reported the teams are the Bulls, Lakers, Heat and Knicks. The Raptors also are on the list of teams for which Bosh is willing to play.

The Knicks could re-sign David Lee and ship him to Toronto; the Lakers could trade Andrew Bynum; the Bulls probably wouldn't part with Joakim Noah but could give back Taj Gibson or James Johnson in such a deal.

But the Heat? Well, Michael Beasley could potentially be traded to the Raptors in a sign-and-trade.

Yet, according to Doug Smith of the Toronto Star, the Raptors have little interest in the Heat's roster.

"The Heat have nobody who really interests the Raptors, according to several insiders who've talked privately about it for months, so envisioning something there is difficult," Smith writes.

If the Heat are unable to land Bosh because of this, it might give them more reason to put the full-court press on Amare Stoudemire once July 1 hits.

CHISHOLM: WHICH TEAMS ON BOSH'S SHORT LIST WORK FOR RAPTORS?

Well, go figure that as soon as talk in Raptorland begins gravitating towards the draft, suddenly a list 'appears' to let the world at large know what five teams Chris Bosh will be looking to play for next season, refocusing the attention back on Toronto's lone All-Star.

Clearly, the first thing most Raptors fans did upon coming across the unexpectedly short list was check to see if Toronto made the cut (it did, along with New York, Miami, Chicago and Los Angeles). Then, visions began swirling in their heads as to the ramifications of this sudden revelation.

First off, let's just go ahead and assume that as of right now, this list is legit. While Bosh's agent, Henry Thomas denied giving the Raptors a list of teams, Raptors GM Bryan Colangelo confirmed that he had received one, and Colangelo, if nothing else, has always been rather candid about these sorts of issues in the past, so let's give him the benefit of the doubt. Heck, there is just as good a chance that the Raptors brass actually leaked the list, giving the local and national media an ability to contextualize the Bosh situation, as well as letting everyone know that Toronto remains one of the five teams he's willing to consider at this point.

Of those five teams listed, there are plusses and minuses Bosh will no doubt take into account when selecting where he will sign for the prime years of his career, as well as there being plusses and minuses for the Raptors as it relates to a sign-and-trade, should Bosh prove true to his word by participating in one. Here is a brief glimpse at each scenario.

New York Knicks

We'll get this one out of the way first because it is the easiest to detail and move past. New York has a mountain of cap space, but they are in even worse a place than Toronto is when it comes to winning - and Bosh has said repeatedly that he wants to win.

If the Knicks can get LeBron, things clearly change. If they don't get LeBron (or Dwyane Wade), then there is no reason to give New York another glimpse. Plus, the thought of pairing David Lee (the sign-and-trade target Toronto would probably have to settle for) with Andrea Bargnani would obliterate any hope for the Raptors improving defensively next season or as long as they were a tandem.

If Bosh wants to win there are much better options available to him than one of the most dysfunctional franchises of the last decade, and there are much better available returns for the Raptors elsewhere on Bosh's list.

Los Angeles Lakers

The appeal here is obvious, since the Lakers appear to be on a crash course with a third Finals appearance in a row. That being the case, though, there doesn't appear to be an obvious reason why L.A. would want to muck with the incredible team that they have at their disposal, nor why they would want to take on a tremendous amount of additional salary after balking at Lamar Odom's contract demands last summer.

Basically, as talented as Bosh is, Pau Gasol appears to be a much better fit alongside Kobe and in Phil Jackson's system, so swapping them makes little sense, and a Gasol/Bosh front court (one with Andrew Bynum going to Toronto) offers a lot of duplication in skills (and weaknesses).

While many pundits like the talent swap for L.A. with exchanging Bynum for Bosh, it would balloon an already outrageous payroll ($91 million this season) even higher since Bynum makes only $13 million, versus Bosh who would make just under $20-million. It also takes the Lakers primary defensive force in the post out of the equation for more scoring that they don't really need.

For the Raptors the move makes some sense, in that on paper Bynum would be the ideal partner for Bargnani up front with his size, length and defensive acumen. Plus, it would allow the Raptors to move Bargnani back to his more natural power forward position.

However, Bynum has a checkered past as it pertains to injuries and he has shown a lot of immaturity in L.A. when he hasn't gotten his way on offence, a trait that could become a much larger issue in Toronto without the forces of Phil and Kobe to keep him in check.

If this scenario were to go down, then Bosh clearly wins but it is unclear if L.A. or Toronto improves overall in the transaction.

Miami Heat

This is where things start to get interesting for all parties involved. Obviously pairing Bosh with Dwyane Wade makes a lot of sense, especially since Wade's proven to be a more natural leader in Miami than Bosh has been in Toronto. Bosh would finally give Wade a legit All-Star teammate, one that can relieve some of his scoring burden and can step away from the basket to open up the paint for Wade's drives.

Bosh would likewise finally get to play with a fellow All-Star every night, and he would also be able to play with the best creator he'd have ever been teamed with, making his job much easier at the offensive end of the floor. Miami would still have to fill out the rest of their roster (they have only three players slated to return next season) to maximize a Wade and Bosh tandem, and Bosh would have to swallow being a secondary player for the first time in his career, but the pairing still makes a lot of sense from an outside perspective.

As for Toronto, they'd probably vie for Udonis Haslem as a return piece in a sign-and-trade (he too is a free agent), though it's hard to say if Miami would be inclined to part with him (they LOVE him) or whether Haslem would be amenable to playing in Toronto (he LOVES Miami). If they could make that swap work, then Haslem becomes an almost ideal frontcourt mate for Bargnani as a rugged, defensive big man who rebounds, plays smart defence and has a better-than-expected offensive game (he's like a grizzled, veteran version of Amir Johnson with less athleticism).

The thought of Michael Beasley coming to Canada is a slightly nauseating thought at this point, but the Raptors may be forced to take him on in order to sell this trade to fans since Beasley is still seen as a talented player with lots of untapped potential whereas Haslem is moure of an über-role player. The Raps might also be able to get back the first-round pick they sacrificed to the Heat in the Shawn Marion deal. It's not the ideal situation for Bosh and Toronto, but it's not too shabby should this be the way things turn out.

Chicago Bulls

If Bosh were to leave Toronto, this would be the destination that would make the most sense for all parties involved. Bosh would get to play with one of the league's best point guards in Derrick Rose, Chicago would get the big man they've long coveted and Toronto could net an attractive swath of return pieces. In Chicago, Bosh would still be the team's best scorer and the focal point of their offensive attack and he'd be joining a pretty well-built outfit alongside Rose, Joakim Noah and Luol Deng. In fact, pairing Bosh with Noah may even be comparable in importance at this juncture of his career as pairing him with a guard like Rose, because Noah is such a strong rebounder and energy player he takes so much pressure off of Bosh as a big man on defence and on the boards that Bosh can really focus his energies on the offensive end.

Having a defensive partner he can trust in the post would be a real first for Bosh and the allure of such a tandem is clear. Plus, since the support crew is already in place in Chicago, the Bulls offer a much clearer picture of their future than Miami does, since they'd still have to construct a supporting cast this summer.

For the Raptors, they'd probably ask for Noah and have to settle for power forward Taj Gibson, but that's not all bad. Gibson was a surprise standout in this year's rookie class, averaging 9.0 points and 7.5 rebounds in only 26.7 minutes per game. There is a lot of duplication between him and Amir Johnson, with each nearly matching each other's stats perfectly per 36 minutes, but when their skills are defence, rebounding and hustle beside Bargnani, they are skills worth repeating elsewhere on the roster. Plus, Gibson still has room to grow as a player after only one season in the NBA. His ceiling could wind up being a lot higher than Johnson's when all is said and done (though, many thought Johnson's ceiling might be higher than it has turned out to be, too).

To make the salaries work, the Raptors would probably also have to take back Kirk Hinrich, a 'love him or hate him' kind of player that saw his PER dip to a career-low this season despite playing the most minutes per-game that he has played in two years. While Hinrich is a low-percentage guy, he can play both backcourt positions, he can defend both backcourt positions, and he only has two more years on his deal at a de-escalating salary rate. He is another one of those guards, though, that would give Hedo more opportunities to run the plays while providing the team with help in key defensive areas.

Toronto could probably also get the Bulls to throw in the right to swap first-round picks next season in the deal or if not, Colangelo may push for athletic forward James Johnson, a player he was enticed by in last spring's draft.

Of all the scenarios that can occur if Bosh leaves Toronto, this one appears to be the safest route for Toronto to go in as it pertains to talent they can assuredly get in return, and obviously Chicago wouldn't think twice about pulling the trigger on just about any deal that brought Bosh into the fold for the Bulls.

Toronto Raptors

Let's not forget, Bosh has not turned his back on Toronto. The team as built won't be enough to retain his services, but a few tweaks could compel him to stay. The key would be selling Bosh on why he should believe that there is a reason to think that the next six years will be any better for him than the last seven - and that could be a very hard sell at this point.

However, if the Raptors can import attractive talent, then there are a lot of legacy reasons for Bosh to step up and re-sign in Toronto, if that's something that interests hm. Consider that guys who play their whole careers for one team, who become inseparably joined to the image of their club, tend to carry on a longer legacy than the guys that bounce around (especially the guys who bounce around and don't win a title).

If Bosh stayed, he would be immortalized as THE Raptor, for now and for a very long time. While that may not sound like a very tantalizing prospect given the Raptors history, it creates longevity in people's minds. Consider the career of guys who started their careers strong but fell off the radar after moving around some (Mitch Richmond, Juwan Howard, Jerry Stackhouse, Shareef Abdur-Rahim, Damon Stoudamire) against the guys who stuck with their original club for most, if not all, of their pro careers (Patrick Ewing, Reggie Miller, Gary Payton, Dirk Nowitzki). Staying with one club doesn't ensure anything in terms of a lasting legacy, but it can certainly help play a part in one.

There is an argument to be made - and Colangelo has made it already - that this Raptors team could stay more or less unchanged for another season and have a better overall record by further developing chemistry with a returning core. The thinking being that there wouldn't be the same issues out of the gate creating so many early losses, that Jay Triano and his staff would be that much more familiar with what they has to work with roster-wise and that management would have a better idea of how to augment this group having seen it play one full season together. That would be a VERY hard sell for Bosh at this point, to be honest, but that doesn't mean that the argument has no merit.

No matter how this all shakes out in the coming weeks and months, at least fans and the media have been given some measure of context to view this whole free agency issue through. The Raptors were no doubt given this list so that they could lay the groundwork on trades with some of the teams Bosh showed interest with now, which helps Bosh gauge the interest of those teams without breaking tampering rules while also giving the Raptors a helping hand going into the draft, knowing what kind of pieces they may get in return in a sign-and-trade.

This may only be the earliest stages of this process, but no doubt Bosh and the Raptors are happy to start making headway on it now after having spent the last two years discussing it to death.

Bosh for an offensive-minded, tough, Power-forward, with hustle, and the best Backup center in the league, along with our pick? Doesn't sound good? What about Pietrus?

No, not at all.

Gortat is the only half decent piece in all that, and yet this would be the most lopsided trade ever....

Bass....just no.

The pick is #29...most likely won't have an impact.

And Pietrus is a good defender and a decent guy to have off the bench but no....

3 pine riders and an extremely low pick wouldn't net you Zach Randolph,let alone Bosh.

only orlando wins. the raps give up there best rebounder for a guy who's been proven to be a poor rebounder for his size in rashard lewis. Vince Carter, a guy that pretty much tore our hearts out and jumped ship(he's kinda washed up now). orlando get's our best player and one of our best ball handlers. both teams do not win. Just imagine the rebounding between rashard lewis and andrea bargnani! it would equal about 10rpg. lol

ya no i get it but what do you expect in a sign and trade deal lebron or dwight.... not happening you will get a good player i much rather lewis then bynum or nothing at all just saying

i hate it when teams offer their garbage for all star players.. when you propose a trade it needs to help both teams. think harder before you propose. by underating boshes value its pretty offensive. not even a promising star in your prosed trade? come on radiant.

i wonder what some peopel would offere in a sign and trade for lebron. id at least offer

bargnani
13th pick
derozan

and expirings for jamison ( banks , evans)

the magic would offer gortat, pietrus, the 29th pick, which deal seems better?

its hard to get back half of the value in a sign in trade. it's just that vince carter and rashard lewis arent that trade-able. VC being a lil old and rashard lewis being overpaid. i would rather take bynum over the other 2 from orlando.

I would assume that you would have to offer a pg to make up for the lack in playmaking outside of LBJ.

If i were to do a S&T for LBJ in order for him to land in toronto i would give up:

Jose Calderone
Amir Johnson
Sonny Weems/Derozan
13th pick.

at the minimum. LBJ compiles too many stats, cleve would be lookin to replace about 30 ppg. 7rpg and 8 astpg

I agree with you. He has been having knee troubles since he became relevant. I find that he and jermaine o'neal have the same body type. To me, they seem a bit top heavy. Having heavy upper bodies and long legs with weak joints. As an investment for the future he has more risk then potential return. Let's be honest, on the lakers this guy can coast through the season. On the raps he would have to become a centre piece on the defensive and offensive side of the game. i couldnt see him playing in more then 55-60 games if he played on the raps. All in All, there aren't really that many dominant centre's in the NBA. they are in short supply.

The reason I threw Vince in there is because many of the Raptor fans hate Hedo. Haha, and they want to unload that contract...

Anyway, what about Bosh, for Pietrus & Bass & Pick, or Gortat & Bass & Pick.

lol, vince back on the raptors would be histerical , should cheer or boo, lol.

I would be ok with that if rashard and vince were trade-able for the raps. It's just that rashard lewis is too expensive and not productive enough in todays economy. Also, Everybody in the NBA knows that if vince were to be traded to toronto he would immediately be on the trading block and because of that teams would offer us junk for VC. so the raps would be getting screwed.

You know, i think it's that all of the big men in the NBA are getting hurt all the time. Guys like; Bynum, Oden, Blake Griffin, Camby, Pryzbilla, Robin Lopez, Bogut, Tyson Chandler, Jermaine O'neal...Joakim Noah. I'm sure there are others that i missed, the centres that are considered the best are the ones who stay healthy, plain and simple, the healthiest ones happen to be Kendrick Perkins and Dwight Howard. Brooke Lopez is also a sick centre too.

I think that the raps need to go after one of the Centres. This included in the S&T with chris bosh.

haha so you wouldnt mind perkins ;) lol no but i do agree with you.... on the bynum thing one more thing i would like to add is hes pretty much their forth option i dont think he can be a number one or two option... and if your looking for a good big man to bad memphis isnt on his list they have great big man who have plenty of time to develop... i know thabeet hasnt really had a great season but i feel he can be dominent... but lopez is def going to be the future of centers hes a freak... more recently you have been seeing a lot of pfs going into the c spot guys like duncan, dirk, sheed, jo, etc centers are just hard to come by

Somebody on psd posted a website that is directed towards Bosh signing in Miami. These are the reasons that the site stated. I figured this was relevant enough to post in here.

"1. The state of florida will not have its hand in your money, thats right..NO STATE TAX!

2. Miami is a huge market to play and a massive upgrade from toronto, make yourself a bigger name here in miami and grow your fame in MIAMI'S BIG MARKET.

3. Have a legendary coach in PAT RILEY coach you and lead you to your first ring, riley is a one of a kind coach and has the CHAMPIONSHIP pedigree that is extremely rare.

4. South beach is a beatuiful place to be in THE MIAMI NIGHTLIFE is ideal for any celebrity, have a good time, and never find yourself a dull moment in the BEAUTIFUL CITY OF MIAMI.

5. Last, but not least play along side of DWYANE WADE, one the best players in the league along with yourself, the two of you would make the best ONE-TWO PUNCH IN THE LEAGUE easily."

You're idiots in the sense that :

-You're trying to get rid of Bosh (Which you will later regret)
-You signed Hedo to a massive contract that you now wish, one year in, you wouldn't have.

I know we've made mistakes, but we've done things for the better, you guys have just gone downhill. Hedo and Vince haven't made the difference in us winning Playoff series.
