I love that the other day on the TNT after show, they called Bosh out on not being a franchise player, because I've been saying that for... well the entire stay of Bosh in Toronto. Now I will say this... he is a really great player, and probably an all star quality one at most times. But his stats were way inflated playing with the Raptors ... kind of like Shawn Marion back in the days with the Phoenix Suns, also a great player, but not a franchise player. I say if Bosh wants to watch some video on a real post player, he should watch the rookie Blake Griffin, the guys got natural rebounding skillz. (i.e. he understands rudimentary physics.... angle of incidence equals angle of refraction... or in the case of a rim... some time it's straight back at you. And he actually moves into position. Bosh... well, he stands around. Miami, congrats on your big 3... to bad you don't have any post players on that team.

Tis All....

Discuss... your opinions?
So Bosh's stats were inflated playing for a shitty team, yet Griffin's aren't.

Now I love Griffin... LOVE him... but honestly.... they're 2 different types of players.
