Default Bosh/Bargnani = KG/Joe Smith?

Seems pretty similar to me. Both #1 picks forced out of their natural position by a star PF, Smith played a couple years in Golden State first but otherwise had the same fate. He actually put up 15/8.7 and 18/8.5 his first two years, but when moved to Minny his numbers playing SF dropped and never climbed again. Bargnani put up 15ppg in the 2nd half of his rookie year and has never approached that level since. Minny ended up keeping Smith for two years, eventually benching him, then lost him in their 3rd go around (albeit in the FA scandal), which is what I think will happen to Bargs. Both Minny and Toronto are cold, hockey dominant low key franchises. Minny ended up being a perenniel 1st round knockout except for '04 when they went all in with Spree, Cassell, etc., which is what BC tried to do with the JO move. That marginally worked and they made the WCF, but have been in hell since

so yeah, random

No KG is a way better defender and has emotion other than Bosh

KG would probably retire if this trade went down.
we'd be the most hated team in the NBA.
