Did Lebron's disrespect of the Raptors make it easier for Bosh to leave?

Does this now look like he went out of his way to disparage the Raptors?

Quote:
In a press conference after the Cavs 96-94 victory over the Bulls to clinch the first-round playoff series Tuesday night, James praised Chicago's tenacity while questioning the Raptors' will to win.

"We knew that this team would push us," James told reporters. "Honestly … we wanted to play Chicago more than Toronto in this first round, because we knew we were going to get pushed a little bit more."

The Raptors were in a race with the Bulls for the eighth and final playoff spot in the East, but Toronto's chances were hampered when star forward Chris Bosh suffered facial fractures in a game against Cleveland down the stretch.

"That's not taking away anything from Toronto," James went on to say. "But with Bosh being out for the rest of the season, and all those injuries, it just didn't seem like they wanted to make the playoffs at the end of the season.

"Especially when you see the game between Chicago and Toronto in Toronto, you can tell they didn't really want to make the playoffs."

I don't know if it had any effect on Bosh. It was a pretty suspicious move in hindsight. He didn't lie about the Raptors lying down and dying though.

I agree with what he said, Bosh being the #1 offender imo, but still a little suspicious considering what happened in the coming months after these comments. Including his subsequent appearing to dog it himself, in the 2nd round.

I was just glad we didn't make the playoffs.
That team kinda had to be put out of its misery.


Here's to the future!

Correct.

It was a mind out of body experience for Bosh.
