Wow, you really couldn't be any more wrong than you are here. The great thing about Bosh's game is that there are a lot of possibilities. Bosh has had success when he has used his athleticism to get to the rim and has shown that he has enough speed on the first step to get an angle and then go up hard. To suggest that he is using the jumper to then work inside is ludicrous. As Bosh has gotten stronger over the years, he has been more physically able to attack the rim, so now that he has the talent and the body for it, he should be doing it routinely. Seriously, who was there to stop him tonight? The Birdman? K-Mart? I'll take Bosh attacking either of those guys any night. Nene plays tough inside, but I'll take Bosh's speed on him too.

As for the other weaknesses the Raps have, those have been well documented. That's why they need Bosh to get inside, so that he can get to the line, get the opposition in foul trouble, score points with the clock stopped and then open things up for his teammates as the D will not be able to be as aggressive.
