5 a game? Come on man, let's be realistic. There's just no precedent for a mediocre passing PF like Bosh who averages 2 to 2.5 assists a game to jump up to 5.

Guys like KG (who averaged 21/11/5 for 6 straight years) were good passers out of the gate, and he averaged 3 dimes in his second year, and 4.2 in his third.

Similarly Duncan was up to 3 per game in his 3rd year before he peaked at 3.9 assists per game several years later.

At most Bosh can average around low 3's per game. It's just now how we work, even with the attention he commands.

Besides, if Bargnani is playing well, IMO it means he's attacking the basket on his own, and probably not getting passes from Bosh but instead from guys like Calderon or Parker.
