Yao is tall, but he's not that strong. Maybe he's not as good as he could be with his height, but come on, name me 3 centers that are better than him overall ...
The grass is always greener on the other side.

Bosh is a better scorer, a slightly better rebounder (I'd argue). Gasol's a slightly better defender but neither is that great - Tim Duncan is leagues ahead of both, as is KG. Bosh goes to the line WAY more too.

Plus we all forget that Bosh is only 23 (soon to be 24). He still has a couple years of improvement left in him before he hits his prime. Gasol's 28 later this year...
