Like the blog Scott, and my problems with Bosh have been noted on more than one occassion.

While he is 24 and a 3 time all-star, if he played in the West he would be 0 time all-star.

In Bejing he is playing better defense than we have ever seen him play, now is that SMitch, or the players around him , I don't know...nobody does. He has been terrible on D for us, especially when it matters most. In the playoffs last year, he took 4 3pts in a game I think and has shown a reluctance to get to the hoop when we need him too.

I still think he is better suited to a guy that helps the superstar, much like AJ in Washington is to Gilbert when he is healthy.

Perfect example is when Toronto fans started with the "MVP" chant a few years ago....did we overrate him then...absolutly.

You said it though he is 24, there is hope on the horizon.
