Question Is This The Beginning Of The End For Bosh?

Bosh calling out the fans last night and combine that with a lacklustre season for both him and by the team, does that equate problems here in Toronto on whether or not he has the desire to remain a Raptor?

I mean, seeing how this team as taken a step back from last season's overacheivement, do you think ... and dare I say ...... Bosh is coasting now? Not "Vince Carter" coasting, but maybe he's losing his zest of playing ball in Toronto and Canada in general.

I mean, he's becoming more and more out going and wants the world to know that .... Is Canada really the market he's looking to exploit? (i.e. his You Tube videos) Maybe his subpar performance this season can but attributed to a lack of interest in continuing his career here in Toronto. I think next season is the deal breaker for Bosh and the Raptors. I think BC knows this and needs to make something happen immediately and find someone that will compliment Bosh's game and make us a team not to reckon with. :mad:

If nothing is done this summer, I see issues come next season. Because right now this team seems to have taken either a step back or plateaued. How much patience does Chris have or am I totally overreacting as a fan?

booooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He's a class act and our best player by far. Sure his comments weren't awe inspiring, but this guy is a monster talent and he's always been happy playing here in canada (cue SJ rant). This is noweher close to Wincie. He may not be playing up to his potential, but he's NOT faking injuries to get out of town.

Bosh could be tougher, but compared to Vince he looks like a gladiator.

I find it hard to fathom the Raptors without him and Chris not being in a market with fans who appreciate who he is, but stranger things have happened.

i would say it's an overreaction, doc.

In the back of my mind i think that you may be onto something, but really this is pretty unliekly. and I refuse to compare Bosh to Vince as they are NOTHING alike.

I think at this point Bosh is jjust frustrated with things. When people get frustrated they sometimes say things in haste. and hell, he's probably frustrated with himself to some degree too! I think Chris still really likes the city and stuff, so i really wouldn't make too much out of it.

but heck yes, this offseason looks like it will be one for the ages.

Yeah, I just know that for some players exposure south of the border is everything to them, and because we get next to nothing for air time down there that if given the opportunity, Bosh would likely want to play with an American team instead.

As much as SJ doesn't think so, Bosh was unstoppable for a period just after Xmas. What has happened since then? Is it really his knee or something bigger like team chemistry and such?

Here's a question that will open up a lot of debate.

Who's more important to the team? BC or CB4?

I can't see CB4 demanding out or the Raptors trading him. He's THE franchise. He's one of the best big men in the league - and he's only 24 to boot.

At this point, he's just frustrated too. Guys aren't stepping up like they're supposed to.

It would take a lot for BC to give him up in a deal. But if he does go, I think he'll be dealt to the West, and in that deal, I'd be looking for a centre, a swingman and a 1st round selection.

Bosh wants to be the solution here.

It's useless and counterproductive to always trade 1 good player for another. The rest of the team just has to step up, or management has to find a way to *add* another good player next to Bosh. Just like the Lakers did when they added Gasol and didn't lose anything. Otherwise, the replacement-of-Bosh will find himself in a similar situation if the surrounding teammates don't produce.

I think it deserved its own thread so I moved everything to Benzos.
