I'm very happy that I get to see him in my sweet seats come FEb 13.

They could do some real damage with the schedule they have this month. I just think this will be a huge boost, and it just doesn't matter who starts since neither one can be thought of as the lowly backup.

To me the real comparison will be how well the team does with both in the lineup and with Bosh in top form, as opposed to just one in the lineup. They are going to be that much harder to prepare for. No more gameplans like LA running Jose ragged with Farmar and Fisher handing off the ball and tearing through the lane and cutting back to the top of the key, and then sending him through more screens if need be. That kind of stuff does not work against Ford, and neither one of them will tire out so easily now.
