Note to Bosh: Superstar solo acts have better shot at MVPs

MVP Standing + Bosh Article Together

First here is the article.
Quote:
At All-Star Weekend in Dallas, Toronto's Chris Bosh was asked on an ESPN Radio show about the widespread assumption that he not only would be leaving the Raptors as a free agent this summer, but that he would select a team based on where LeBron James and Dwyane Wade land. The thinking behind that view was that two stars always are better than one, which is why the New York Knicks, for example, cleared a staggering amount of cap space last week.

Not so fast, though. Bosh said he already had given some thought to that possibly mistaken notion.

"I was just looking at what people say and it's like, 'Chris is going to go here and play with him, or this, this and that.' I'm like, 'Wait a minute,' " Bosh said. "I feel like I should be built around. And maybe that's just my ego talking, but I feel that I'm a very good player in this league and I'm only going to get better. So ... maybe we should be getting somebody [in Toronto]."

Interesting. Maybe it was Bosh's ego talking. He at least showed self-awareness by suggesting that. Maybe he had just tired of hearing outsiders predict his fate and dictate his thought process. Maybe he believes in the Raptors' and general manager Bryan Colangelo's long-term vision. Or maybe he just wanted to throw a bone to worried fans in Canada.

What Bosh needs to remember, though, is that the one-superstar strategy is better for winning MVP awards than for winning championship rings.

Here is the mvp standing.
Quote:
8. Chris Bosh, Raptors (31-25)

G MPG PPG RPG APG SPG BPG FG% 3P% FT%
53 36.4 24.5 11.4 2.3 0.6 1.1 .525 .375 .790

Last Week's Rank - 6
Bosh was iffy heading into Toronto's game vs. Cleveland on Friday, which would make it four games missed with an ankle injury. At 2-1 while he's out, the Raptors could strengthen Bosh's MVP standing by losing again -- but that's as counterproductive as the one-superstar theory.
so is Steve Aschburner implying he should stay in T.O.? and losing to cavs not a bad thing for mvp race?

Looks to me like Aschburner is saying that TO losing in order to strengthen Bosh's MVP standing, is as counter-productive as trying to chase championships with only one superstar. AKA he thinks Bosh would be foolish to pass up an opportunity to play with LBJ or Wade
