Default Truth or Myth: Chris Bosh

Good read where this writer asks himself the question - Can CB4 become the Raptors’ franchise player?

Bosh carries on his shoulders the hopes of an entire franchise, which oddly means also carrying the hopes of an entire country. Chris Bosh is the first player who comes to mind when we think north of the border. And can you believe this soft-spoken dude doubles as a used car salesman?

For all the things right with Bosh, there are persistent murmurs: Is he strong enough? Is he domineering enough? Is he even a franchise player? His body of work – though impressive – leaves him stranded somewhere in the middle on all those questions.

Until proven otherwise, probably not. But thankfully, he’s got a nice frontcourt addition (Jermaine O’Neal, who’s still only 29 remember?), a pass-first point guard (Jose Calderon) whose eyes will be finally fixed forward instead of over his shoulder, and a solid supporting cast that can make noise in the not-so-formidable East. So if you think Bosh is a franchise player, just realize, he doesn’t have to be.
