saying so doesn't make me underrate bosh, nor does it make me hate him, and it definitely doesn't mean i think Bargnani is better. it just means that he wasn't a critical piece and i do think we are better off changing course.

edit - and the idea of one player carrying a team is the height of idiocy? really?
Basketball is the only sport it can happen, and it happens all the time.
