Bosh already misses Toronto and hopes he doesn't get booed.

Quote:
Q. Bosh, you haven't had a chance to formally address the city of Toronto. Is there anything you have to say to the Raptors fans?

CHRIS BOSH: First and foremost, I miss Toronto already. That was home for me for seven years. I got there when I was a 19 year old rookie. And I learned to love that city and the city embraced me like I was one of their own.
And I poured my heart and soul into every game I played. And I know this isn't easy. It's not easy for me. It's not easy for Toronto. It's not easy for the organization or the staff or anybody.
But I appreciate every moment I had. I had some great times in Toronto that I'll never forget for the rest of my life. And stuff like that is priceless. So I know they're going to be mad at me a little bit, but I did it for my best interests. And I think if somebody was in my shoes they'd do the same thing. And I'd ask them not to boo me when I go back. I hope they don't.
Dude, rightfully ot wrongfully, you're so going to get booed.

After the LeBron debacle I'm not upset with Bosh anymore. Especially in light of the fact he may have known LeBron was going to Miami. He shouldn't have been such a twat with his incommunicado stunt but w/e.

We all probably agree Bosh can't win a championship as the no.1 guy. If he stayed here what was the probability we got a player here better than him? 5%? 1%?

What's the probability he would have won a title here? 5%? 1%?

Can anyone honestly say they would have stayed here if they were in his shoes?

One day he'll admit that the reason he REALLY left was because the fans booing hurt his widdle feelings.

If he really feels that close to Toronto, then I'm going to enjoy booing him even more. Hope he sheds some tears.

He won't get booed, there's no reason for it. He promised us the s&t and he delivered, none can fault him for finally realizing he can't carry a team and he'd be a better 2nd guy .

Funny thing is that if any of you were Bosh, you'd do exactly the same. :facepalm:

Paying lipservice.

First you tell the whole whole world you felt like a wolf in a cage and then you say thank you when someone almost forces it out of your mouth with a question. I won't boo, but I won't cheer either. I only reserve cheers for a star player who's actually done something, not win a measley 3 playoff games for a span of 7 years. Not a guy who plans for months to join another team without focusing on his team first and foremost. If you were such a good guy then maybe you could have given us a choice of top contenders and netted the team something good in return, even if marginal. Not leave the franchise that gave you your shot at being a star player and did everything to keep you happy, to rot with basically nothing in return. You're not clowning us fans who have supported you throughout the years. Going on twitter and slapping us fans across the face, Running to ESPN and telling the whole world about your decision, or your other possibilities really made us appreciate who you are. Now go try racking up empty stats in Lebron's or Wade's team. Everyone will realize how truly overrated you are.

Everything Chris just said is the truth. You did give your best every night and your love for playing in Toronto did show.

But why the hell did you put on this charade about free agency on twitter? Why did you not even sit down with our team to hear our pitch like LBJ and Dwade did?

You left because you think our Team can't be a contender in the next 6 six years. You may be right. Even in year 7, we might still not make the cut. But in year 8, you better watch out!

He heard the pitch. Toronto talked to him right after Houston.

And he left to win more titles than Kobe. He better, because he gave up a lot of dough to do so.

Alot of dough? He gave up 15Mil over 5 years, considering the tax situation or lack thereof in Miami, that amounts to fuck all.
