Like Ive said, Bosh needs a true C next to him, whether its Dalembert or whoever, him and Bargs isnt going to work.

And really, who gives a crap if Dalembert or any center we get doesnt have a post game or cant score on his own, we dont need that. We need perimeter scoring and interior defence, and Dalembert does one of those things well.
JO might not be a center per se, but he can defend centers better than dalembert who is as skinny as bosh. And the reason we don't need scoring from our C is because we have him. Don't underestimate the impact Bargnani has on how Bosh is defended. The only plus with dalembert is that on a few nights every season (when he doesn't foul out) he will give us better interior D. Think about for a second, why would a team almost give away a starting center that only makes 10 millions and blocks a ton of shots? Not to mention that Brand and dalembert were a horrible fit, and brand plays a fairly similar game as Bosh does.
