Just watching that, i felt for bosh. dude carried Toronto on his back for 7 years. Was no where close to this point in his career. At least james was a 2x mvp, had great chances at a ship but couldnt close the deal. but seeing how bosh conducted himself. Seeing how he came through in these playoffs. You would think he has been here before.

YES! FINALLY A FORUM I WAS LOOKING FOR. I always felt bad for bosh because of all the criticisms he gets. he also doesnt get credit when he deserves it. also people shouldnt judge his looks. he doesnt look that ugly and if you watched the one on one interview with bosh and ahmed (idk his name) you can tell he was rlly hurt by those comments that were made to him throughout the season. Bosh also reads alot of books before games and i think that makes him look like a cute little 6'11 kid lol.. anyways very happy for bosh and hope he wins a ring this year and next 6 years.:):):):):clap::clap::clap: BTW WTH IS WRONG WITH WADE. I KNOW HE CAME UP BIG IN THE THE FOURTH BUT STILL WTHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH:facepalm::facepalm::facepalm ::facepalm::facepalm:

Chris Bosh walks all on the court like he is an All Time Great. He acts like he is just the best after every single dunk. You don't see Dirk doing that. Also, Dirk has carries his team into contention as pretty much the only player for 13 years. No one was giving him probps for 12 years until this year. Now all of a sudden Bosh gets credit for carrying a team, in the East, to the playoffs once or twice?

05-27-2011, 01:55 AM
Why the HELL would anyone feel better for Bosh than Lebron? Lebron has finally ridded himself of all the scrubs back in Cleveland and prove to people how good he actually is. Chris Bosh just happened to tag along and trick Riley into paying him a max contract. And what did he carry the Raptors to? Two first round smackings that's what. He was only the franchise player for them because Carter left... that's how bad the Raptors without Carter were kind of like Cleveland without Lebron. Lebron is the best player in the league, it's no question.

Now with that being said.... GO MAVERICKS!

Dude, what the hell are you on?

What Chris Bosh are you watching? Bosh might have like 6 dunks the entire playoffs, and he doesn't act anything like you are talking about half of the time. Matter of fact, all the celebration post-Celtics and Bulls, this guy has been the calmest on the team.

And to the last part, OF COURSE he carried the Raptors. The second best player/highest scorer on those playoff teams were TJ Ford at 14 PPG. We all see what type of dynamic elite PG TJ Ford is right now in his career at just 1 yr older than Bosh. :rolleyes:

You have one chance in life, better make it count. Those 3 clowns ****ed up... Oh well! If that makes them happy.

I love this post. This is what it really reads.

Id be happy if it was just Wade and Bosh, as I feel the Lakers would be able to beat them with a stacked squad. Yet, when a premier player (the best playing at the moment argueably) decided to join them and i felt it became a threat to my team, it became an issue.

Those 3 players messed up my teams chances off winning multiple titles again (when you should worry about Dallas who swept you)

There cheaters because they decided to not sit around and watch my Lakers (with a a squad composed of possibly 4 allstar and a tirade of former allstars) dominate every year. Damn you for giving me competition.

4 All stars in LA? lol, we have 2 and they are aging, the 3 all stars in the Cheat are in their prime. My only complaint is that Miami has 2 Top 3 players in the league. Wade should be competing vs LeBroom. I used to like Wade and the Heat, but once they brought the 3rd best player in the league to join the 2nd best player in the league. What is the deal with those 2 guys? Join forces instead of compete?
It is just my opinion. They are not man enough to fight by themselves. Again IMO...

Class act? Seriously? I can't count how many times Bosh got upset when he was not recognized for his own individual achievements in a game. When he was not interviewed by the media and Lebron and Wade got the attention, he sulked. I am not happy for Bosh by any means and that is not even because I am a Raptors fan. Bosh is one player I have very little respect for because it is all about him.

bosh is like that attention starved chick in high school. A youtube video site to get attention, I think if a guy was really carrying a team he would get the attention he deserves. VC did. I know very few of you guys outside toronto would of seen this but the documentary he came out with right at the end of his time in toronto, it was a such an attention grab. Long cinematics with him staring longingly at the rafters at the acc. Talking about how no number s are retired yet, followed by a turn to the camera with this big smirk as to say I will be that guy.

The overreactions on dunks are on the regular with bosh, he would do it in Toronto and he does it in Miami. It looks like this for miami fans who have yet to really watch much ball this year http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9kB8xYDhifM . He gets no attention so he acts like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ert30PiBf9E&feature=related .

No, I'm more happy for Lebron than Bosh. I didn't like the way he handled himself near the end of last season and all of free agency. Nor, with some of the comments he made. Congrats to him, though. I'm sure he suffered the most scrutiny out of any Heat member, even from his own "fans" and played well during this last series.

Haha ur anger and jealousy give me great pleasure. But don't be foolish and think we were the first ones to have more than one superstar as ur team traded away scraps for pau gasol. And at one point even had 4 hall of gamers on at the same time (shaq/Kobe/Payton/Malone) don't be mad cause we didn't acquire them when our big 3 weren't old and grey like yours or other teams did in th past. But most importantly don't e a hippocrite as ur tram clearly didthe same thing just not as good as us.

But no single player "earns" a title. A team earns a title. Bosh remains a big part of Miami's team as 3rd option. Did Odom also not "earn" championships because he had Gasol and Bryant? Basketball is a team game.

As a Raptor's fan, I enjoyed Bosh's tenure. I was not disappointed he wanted to leave, but rather disappointed by the manner in which he left. I would have liked to see him be a 2nd option somewhere where he could be more challenged to excel, but I'm happy for him that he is still competing at a high level and arguably played better than Wade in this past round against Chicago.

That said, I still have a hard time cheering for Miami, even though I'm happy for Bosh. I will always feel that players negotiating to play on the same team just to win multiple titles takes away from the sport. I like better league parity.

Just watching that, i felt for bosh. dude carried Toronto on his back for 7 years. Was no where close to this point in his career. At least james was a 2x mvp, had great chances at a ship but couldnt close the deal. but seeing how bosh conducted himself. Seeing how he came through in these playoffs. You would think he has been here before.

LeBron's been here before...don't crown him yet...

I do feel good for Bosh to get here. He carried Toronto on his back for years and then we gave him a lot of **** just over a year ago when he left and it wasn't really deservedly so. He didn't refuse to waive a no trade and he was up front about leaving and wasn't secretive about leaving. He didn't go on TV to say he was leaving either.

Heat look like they are gonna get it but why would anyone be happy for LeBron. He's been here before...

Happy wouldn't be the right word, but LeBron has paid his dues to a certain extent. But, I still don't like how this team came together. It's hard to support them due to how this team came about. In a few years things may be different, but only if they don't win a title until then.

Happy for them? lol, **** them.

I'd be happy if it was only a duo of wade & bosh, but when they brought the Queen they messed up the NBA and their legacy. Sorry Heat fans but the coward ack by those 3 will be remembered forever... You have one chance in life, better make it count. Those 3 clowns ****ed up... Oh well! If that makes them happy.

I hope LA brings DH to LA and then the NBA will have 2 teams with 2 Top 5 players, that would be really bad for the NBA, but the CHeat started it...

LOL You do understand that the lakers have being doing what the heat did forever. :facepalm:

I'm happier for Bosh than James, but I'm happiest for Big Z.

Bosh does have a little more ego than he does talent, and I do think he is over-rated, but that doesnt mean he's not a great basketball player. He is. He is a great power forward, putting him in the list of all time, he'd fall back pretty far, he really isnt even among the top ten in the league right now to be honest, but he is still a VERY talented player, and the PF position is deep in this league. Toronto brought in Coangelo, and obviously would be continuing on their course to disaster had they kept Bosh, because they jsut locked in failure for two more years by giving Coangelo and extension. He was right to leave TO (and this is coming from a Raps fan).

James had something very special in Cleveland. He blew it. No championship will mean as much as it would have meant in Cleveland. Lets face it: anybody can win when they are surrounded by all-stars. Anybody. It takes a special guy, like Dirk, like Thomas, and like Jordan, to stick it out and earn it. It is simply not as much as a challenge when you have an guys from the olympic team and all-star teams playing at nearly every position on the court. Its still a great accomplisment, but it just isnt the same.

If Miami does win, I will have a big smile for Big-Z. that guy deserves it. Bosh, I will be happy for, James and Wade, meh. They are good guys. They both do a lot for charity and their communities, and they obviously both bust their @$$e$ off to be where they are, so they all deserve it, but I this whole thing doesnt sit well with me as a fan.

And for those of you wondering what PFs I'd take over Bosh (since I wouldnt say he is even a top ten PF), in no particular order: Gasol, Griffen, Love, Amare, Zach Randolph, David Lee, Carlos Boozer, LMA, Josh Smith, Garnett, Duncan (I dont care if they are old, if either won of them were on Miami instead of Bosh they'd sweep their way to the finals), Udonis Haslem (that's right, Bosh isnt even the best PF on his team!) and obviously Dirk. You know what, maybe David West too, and a healthy Kenyon Martin for sure. You know what, give me Elton Brand too!

he was clearly the best player, and yes most teams struggle when they lose their best player but they don't usually see a decrease in wins by almost 50 percent. that's a pretty clear indicator of the talent that remained after he left and it also goes a long way to explaining why the team never got beyond solid. they never had a lot of talent and BC never focused much effort on acquiring defensive players to surround Bosh.

bosh is not the type of player u want to surround with talent. in his mind he thinks he's a superstar, the go to guy, the key piece. but we know better don't we jamie?

in his mind he probably thinks he is saying "you have to work hard to put up those kind of numbers, and if working my tail off isn't leadership i don't know what is".

if you want to scrutinize every nugget that shows up in the paper feel free. he made some PR mistakes on his way out. no big deal. the fact that these things became big issues tells you just how much we love to take it personal when athletes decide to leave. it's more telling about us than it is them.

Regardless of that 3rd seed they had , chris bosh couldnt lead them over the nets in the first round. People tend to forget how good guys like calderon, garbojas , peterson , ford , bargani really were as a team in 07(theres others im probably forgetting but whatever). But yeah bosh's role right now is perfect for him as the third guy(nothing more and nothing less). Lets also not forget why his numbers were so good in Toronto .. Number one guy , shot attempts etc.

Without a doubt. He worked his *** off for this team for at least 6 and a half years. I'm not going to let what might have happened in the last two months really affect my opinion of him. He tried to help this team win. When he thought this team was going in a good direction, he signed an extension rather than test the waters (offer sheets). They tried building around him (as a franchise player) but unfortunately he isn't the main man that they wanted him to be (It's not that he he's not a great player, it's just that franchise players are very rare). Sometimes things just don't work out; his departure was in the best interest of both parties. He went to a team that he felt would win, and we are able to start a proper rebuild (we had quite a few bad contracts (Hedo, Banks etc) that basically gave us a low ceiling with him on the team.)

I don't fully understand all of the scrutiny over his comments about Toronto when he left. All he really said is that Toronto was different and he initially didn't like it here. That's not a rare response, many people don't like moving far away from where they live. For example, If I was told that I would have to go live in Dallas (Not trying to insult Dallas residents, just using an example, apologies for anyone offended) after Living in Canada (Toronto) all of my life, I don't think I would initially love it either. He also said that the city grew on him and he started to love it. Again, if he really hated Toronto, he wouldn't have even bothered to re-sign his first deal. I'm sure a team like Miami, or Dallas or LA would have cleared cap space in order to pry him away after 4 years.

My question to my fellow Raptor fans is If Colangelo didn't make those passive-aggressive remarks about Bosh in the off-season, would your opinion of him be significantly different? I honestly believe that he made those comments to save face: He had an expiring, hefty contract that he wanted renewed, and he needed an excuse for losing a MLSE cash cow for a late pick and a trade excpetion.

Lebron, absolutely embarrassed his former team with that show. I don't know how one can argue against it. But I think an argument can come out

But I'm also happy that that disloyal sack of **** Boozer is out. Let's not forget that this is a guy who had promised to resign with the Cavs on a new contract (when they had Lebron) if they declined his option, then ran to the Jazz. Lame *** overrated jack-*** lol

He worked his tail off for the majority of his stay with the team. I can respect that. Management never put a team around him, nor did they realize that he needed a first option to maximize his effectiveness. He is an outstanding player who is a tier below the type of player you want to build a team around. I appreciate a Raptor's fan giving credit where it is due.

That argument doesn't really hold any water if you look at his efficiency stats. People assume #1 options on bad teams have their stats inflated - only the inefficient ones. Guys like Bosh in TOR, Love in MIN, etc. are just great players on bad teams. Their stats are not inflated.

When your a free agent and have the right to go where you want. Thats the wrong way.

I don't know if you can call them great players. They are all-stars without a doubt, but for me, a great player is a person you can build your team around. I'm not to certain you can build a team around Bosh or Love. They are great complimentary players, but not main guys.

You couldn't be more wrong. Bargnani has basically produced the same when he was the number 1 option this year, (besides rebounding because he can't). Chris Bosh was only "good" because he was given the shots and the role of leader.

bosh is not the type of player u want to surround with talent. In his mind he thinks he's a superstar, the go to guy, the key piece. But we know better don't we jamie?

The guy is an attention whore, who cries when they lose regular season games, then *****es about his touches. What a joke. Im glad we dodged that bullet.

no love for bosh.

with that being said, miami wouldnt have gotten this far if bosh didnt play as well as he has in the playoffs. he has stepped up for the heat and you cant deny that.

No I'm not happy for the overrated player who hung on the coat tails of Bron and Wade to get this far.

Bosh is no longer overrated. The amount of criticism, and frankly, crap, he got this year almost shoved him into underrated status. He's been very good when they need him to be. No one thinks he's a top 10 player, but he's definitely top 15-20. Most people rate him perfectly, some underrated him...I don't think anyone overrates him any more.

He is Overrated for what he is being paid. He has a contract of a super star.
Yeah sure, he has had some nice games this season but he is a NBA player, He better be able to muster up a well played game every once in awhile.

He just averaged 23 and 7 on 60% shooting in the ECF finals.

Aside from that he makes $14.5M which only puts him as tied for the 22nd highest salary in the NBA.

If Bosh is overrated for what he is being paid at only $14.5M, what does that make Pau Gasol at $17.8M? The most useless player in the NBA?

really don't like bosh since his comments about people can't expect him to score big every night. i know bosh fans consider it just being sensitive. but i can't question the fact that bosh simply is the reason why the heat are in the finals.

we dropped from 40 to 22. the supporting cast was arguably improved this season over last. injuries? happen to every team every year. fans always have it in their heads that there were extenuating circumstances that are the reason for their results. and yet every team has their own list of issues. it's not unique.

I pretty well agree with your sentiment but can't see eye-to-eye with your argument. The supporting cast on this year's raptors team was barely good enough to come off the bench for a basement-dweller. We traded Bosh and Turk for Barbosa, got rid of our starting pg, plus our only rebounder and starting 3 were both lost to injury for half the season. This team was put together to lose. Dude, I bet Gatorade bought stock in the raptors because of all the 10-day call-ups.

Nobodys problem was with bosh, Nobody had a problem with wade and bosh teaming up, the problem came when James betrayed his home team, who had given him nothing but support over the 7 years he was in the league, to basicaly say im not the guy you thought I was, I need the 2nd best player in the league in order to win. thats where my problem came in. If Bosh and Wade win 7 rings good for them, if James win one, ill still hate his ***.
