Not that I want to defend Moon, cuz I certainly don't, but Bosh gave Danny Granger a straight line to the bucket in the final minute of the 4th the other night.

And why do I always hear that Bosh is a character guy who doesn't put the blame on others, rather takes the blame himself (supposedly unlike certain other players)? Not once in 6 years can I ever remember Bosh taking the blame for a loss. Not once.

To be fair, there's no way Bosh is guarding Danny Granger straight up, no matter how much room he gives him.

You don't see him deflecting blame often, but you also don't see him shouldering the blame either.

I am glad Bosh called out Moon. The mentality of this team needs to change. When Bosh effs up too then someone should call his ass out. ACCOUNTABILITY! Clearly the coaches are too soft.

The players need to police themselves. Yet - with Moon I don't see anything helping.

What's the point? I'm sure Moon will jack another ill advised three pointer in the next game...

This could be either a good or a bad thing. Hopefully Triano polices it the right way and uses it as motivation. Good players often call out their teammates. Hello, Kobe anyone??

It is ironic that Bosh has been a matador this season, but he's pulling his weight in other areas. Moon played great for the first while of the 4th quarter, then basically forgot who he is and what his role is. He gave JJ a straight drive to the cup, bit hard on a Bibby fake when he should have kept his feet, and tried to be offensive option #1 on O as well.

Bosh is just venting frustration. If I was on our team, I'd be bitching right now too...

None of these losers have any right to bitch about others... all Raps players suck ass big time... if memory servers me right, only few games ago Bosh let moron like Noah make him look silly while he managed to lose the game for the Raps.

Bosh needs to remember, every time he points a finger he has three pointed back at him, and a thumb pointing somewhere......

Here's the thing about being a leader: It's not just about calling guys out, because anybody can do that. It's about picking your spots. If you're going to call a guy out, do it early in the season so that he understands who's in charge and what his role is on the team. Doing it now won't have as much of an effect, because Moon has already established how he is going to play this year. I guess better late than never, but when a guy says, "I guess everybody's upset, but it was an open shot...anybody can miss an open shot" you have to think that it might be too little too late as far as getting through to him.

Bosh gave Derrick Rose a straight line too. But yes, Moon made terrible mistakes in the crunch time. Nevertheless, you can't blame a 700K contract player but we can blame Bosh for turning the ball over. Giving the ball away in the last minute is not tolerable. I wouldn't mind if he took a shot and missed it.

I dont even care at this point, just do everything opposite of what you've been doing besides letting Andrea start.
