I don't see why that should be the case when they're currently boasting some of the best young talent in the league and have secured themselves an excellent coach.

The Barea decision was a curious one but in the grand scheme of things I'd say that their future looks very bright.

That's the main reason i wad pissed off when Bosh left.

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.
LOL... D12 is telling everyone that he wants to leave NOW. When Bosh left guys like Howard and Melo were turning up their noses at the time, saying how "they would never do that to their team". Howard in particular continued to say how much he wanted to stay and how much he loved ORL... while ignoring the extension put forth by the Magic. And now, in spite of the fact that he's had many good seasons with ORL and gone to the finals he wants to leave for greener pastures. Yeah.... what an angel he is.

Why would Bosh regret anything? He made the smartest decision out of any of those guys by far. Odds are he'll have a ring by season's end this year. Now Melo? Amare? THEY look like a complete idiots IMO.

Fact is Carter turned into a liability, and he managed to trade him without getting a liability back.

Calderon/Bosh/Mitchell/Cap Room.

I apologize Mr. Babcock, you served Collagenlo a tasty dish in stride for a wide open layup and he bobbled the ball horribly.
