Question Is Bosh Criticizing Sam Again?

Could there be trouble in paradise between Chris and Sam? Maybe I'm reading into this a little too much, but doesn't it sound like Bosh is being critical of Sam's decisions last night?

We ran the cross screen (for Bosh) one time and we got a foul, and we didn't go back to it. We kept doing the same thing."

Hmmm .... For me it looks like Bosh was upset with his overall performance. As Jose said in the post game interview, he had to choose what Boston defense gave him: KG wouldn't leave Bosh alone so Jose had clear path to turn the corners and find the open shooters ... The strategy was working perfectly, but Raptors collapsed in the 4th quarters making too much TOs.

Hey, if Bosh wants to be considered a "franchise' player, he has to step it up against guys like KG and not simply Jared Dudley.

Garnett needs to be beaten up, pure and simple. Use whatever big men you have and all the fouls you can give - maybe with severely bruised arms the bitch will stop the finger wagging and the chest pounding.

I hate sore losers, but I hate sore winners even more. The fuckers have no class and no grace and the fine tradition of dunking on a losing team in a blowout (see Green, G) continues on.

As far as Bosh is concerned - he was being manhandled all night long. So long as the sheep-fuckers known as champs are allowed to do whatever they feel like on defence, it's going to be tough for players like Bosh to break free. JOs of the world, on the other hand, have no problems with this "style" of play, and he's proven it last night. If only the game was called evenly at both ends.... FUUUUUUCKKKKKK!

Yeah, yeah, Bosh is a pussy, Garnett is an emotional leader - shove that crap where it came from! Garnett is given more leeway on defence that medieval Popes on fucking everything that moves. On the other hand, anything remotely resembling a touch foul was called on Pierce. (Truth my ass, he sucked balls for years in Boston without much chest-pounding and roof-wailing).

In short, we have the new thugs, since it looks like Detroit and San Antonio are on the down-slope. Only these thugs are also "emotional" (as in a fucking bunch of classless apes, in my view).

Garnett is an idiot. He can't make a good and meaningful sentence in English. It was very stupid of him going after Calderon. He should be more noble at this stage of his career. That said, Bosh has to step up in big games. That's what he is for. Otherwise we should trade him for a true leader. He is becoming the next Garnett as this team has not passed by the first round in the playoffs yet. He needs a Pierce of his own to carry the team or support him as it seems.

Garnett is a fuckin bitch.
But I know why he does what he does. It gets under the opponent's skin, irritates them to no end. It's exactly what he wants.

He may be a bitch, but he's effective and scared Bosh shitless last night. Class or no class, I'd take a KG anyday on this team.

Where is Rodman when we need him so badly? I guarantee you Garnett punching The Worm before the half-time, getting suspended and blowing his brains out in the locker-room in impotent rage...

What!?! You have to get the ball to play like anything! In the last five minutes of the game he didn't touch the ball! Pierce struggled all game but had the ball in his hands at crunch time. That's what you do with your best scorer. Why is Bosh a pussy? He got virtually no plays run for him all game long. Sam didn't even attempt to get him in that game. You have to know that against boston, your other guys may get you going at the beginning of the game but you need your best player at the end. Awful, awful coaching last night. Disgusting! No one can be blamed for that but Mitchell.

He's a great guy and SO entertaining but SAM HAS GOT TO GO!!!

The day Garnett becomes a Raptor is the day I finally give my nerves and break and stop cheering for this team. I don't care who the classless tool is playing for - I can't support this kind of behaviour. Same goes for Pierce.

Meh ... I'd rather be a winner than mediocre like we are. To each their own I guess. I mean I myself wouldn't be a dick like they are, but if JO and Bosh got cocky like they do I wouldn't be ashamed in the slightest if it meant we were winning. It's the heat of the moment and their pumped. They're just alot more vocal and expressive than most players are.

Take refs' tongues out of their asses and see what cockiness remains.

Do you remember Garnett being that "emotional" in Minny? Or Peirce showing that much cockiness from under the sulk-towel? Exactly. Showboating, Gloating Bitches. QED.
