The big difference is that Bosh
told everybody that he will stay, while howard publicly declared he wanted to leave. Colangelo had no choice but to try to keep building around bosh, otherwise he would have looked silly trading his star player based on internet rumours. That's the main reason i wad pissed off when Bosh
Of course, we now know that Bosh
lied about his intentions because he didn't really want to be traded. The only team he wanted to go had nothng to offer.
The reality is we would have gotten shit even if we tried to trade him because any team would have wanted him to sign an extension before surrendering any assets in a trade.
We were all f..ed by bosh, fans and management alike. Hopefully he'll get to regret that decision one day.
