Mitchell would always come up with some sort of series of plays to get them going together, he even had them running a little 4,5 pick and roll at the free throw line which lasted all of 2 games.

Triano has tried stuff with them, but they always end up gravitating to the other three guys on the court.

To be honest, it doesn't really seem like they like eachother all that much.

This is all speculation, but to a degree, Bargnani has always been given things whereas Bosh has earned them, and I'm sure Bosh has a bit of a lingering beef with Bargnani over that.

I know their are a lot of Bosh fans. But the fact is, he gets booed more than anybody when things aren't going well, and at times Bargnani gets some pretty loud cheers for doing some pretty mediocre things on the court.

Their just isn't any chemistry between them and I think the hold up of them working well together probably has more to with Bosh than Bargs. They should be unstoppable when working together.

They should be so unstoppable, that their is no reason for Hedo to be on the team.
Jose and Bosh go out of their way to make sure Bargs is never better than the 3rd or 4th option on the floor.

Jose would rather pass to Bosh in a double-team and Bosh would rather turn it over than pass it back to a wide open Bargs.

The Chemistry issues are all one-way issues.
Hedo and Belinelli tend to be the only ones willing to set Bargs up when he is open.
