It didn't really bother me much when Bosh left Toronto, but I felt we were in a better position than the Cavs at the time who were capped out and didn't really have any promising prospects. Fast forward two years: the Cavs have their franchise player along with some good prospects and Varejo has been great thus far. They didn't rush to sign a free agent for the sake of using all their cap space (which many teams do), rather are building through the draft. This is going to put them in line for a lottery pick this year, probably top five wth Irving out. They have a ton of cap space next year to add a free agent or can tank and add another lottery pick for 2014. The multitude of assets they possess will provide them with ammunition to improve their team via the trade market and/or free agency. With no bad contracts, a potential all-star point guard who doesnt get a big extension until 2015, quality prospects, likely a 2013 top 5 pick, and cap space for the next two to three seasons, it's going to be interesting to see how the Cavs look in two years from now.
