In my acceptance, a superstar has to:
- have a 1st team all-nba selection (or multiple selections to the 2nd and 3rd team)
- or seriously be in the running for MVP for more than one season
- or get his team to the finals (as the lead guy)
- or overhyped by the media because of huge offensive numbers (like carmelo anthony or gilbert arenas)
Bosh isn't a superstar yet - all he did so far is post solid numbers year after year - there are many players like him. I think this year he'll make the jump though, if he continues to play well at the olympics. Hopefully it will be deserved - and not just because of that.
