Whoa, whoa, whoa, when has Bosh said bad things about the city? When has any player said bad things about the city? Typically they're directed towards the team and management, but very rarely the city.

And really, who anointed Bosh a leader? Was it the fan base? Was it the team looking for someone after the whole VC debacle? How quickly did we crown Bosh a franchise guy after VC was traded?

And who said he was supposed to make those around him better? Hell name me a PF/C who makes players around him better? I can think of really only KG while playing for Boston and there's a reason for that.

And this whole idea of running away? How often, in your own life, do you stay with one company? The average time is what, 5-7 years? Why do we hold athletes in this different pedestal?

Hell, I don't even like Bosh and thought he was overrated, but some of the comments directed to him are ridiculous.
