Yeah I understand that.
Let's say he does flop...how is that + the huge cap space in 2010 any less appealing to Bosh
than TJ Ford and Rasho?
Regardless of how Jermaine pans out, I can't see Bosh
sitting down next summer and saying "Damn, I really wish we'd have kept TJ and Rasho"
Sure we take a small risk on JO's health, but even if he were to suffer a career ending injury tomorrow, the Raptors
would still be a mediocre team with boatload of upcoming cap space.
When the reward of the positive outcome far
outweighs the penalty of the negative outcome, how can there be that much risk involved? Especially considering for all we know at this point, the positive outcome is more likely.
And if Bosh
can't recognize this as Raptors
management making a direct effort to build around him, then he's an idiot, and he's welcome to leave us with 35 million to play with in a couple summers. I don't think that's the case though.
