Our Boy Chris Bosh!!!

I wanna talk about Bosh for a second. I know were all on his throat right now, why shouldnít we be, were fans, were allowed to be fickle. But lets let last evening go away today and move forward, just as Chris Bosh should take what he can from his game, learn from the experience, and move forward.

When we talk about Bosh as an MVP candidate, or as an MVP talent, we need to be clear on one thing. Chris Bosh is an MVP caliber talent in the NBA. His growth has been phenomenal, and his ability to adapt to the NBA and add add a new weapon every offseason has done more to prove his worth than anything else. The guy is doing what the greats do, heís progressing, and heís refusing to settle for ďjust enoughĒ.

Boshís progress and potential are exactly why we get angry however, we see his potential, and we want it al now, just like us, he seeí sit too and wants it al now. He makes mistake sin the media, and he makes mistakes in his preparation for games on a mental level as well. Itís important to understand that this is part of the growth process, or both us as fans, and for Chris Bosh as a budding Superstar.

As a fan who has the luxury of age on his side, I can see the impatience of youth in his game, and in his demeanor, itís why Iím critical of him, and being critical is something that a player can use as a gift. These guys read the papers, the get it. Bosh is a computer nerd, he reads the message boards, guaranteed, maybe even our own. He knows where his gaffs are, and he knows his strengths. The guy is an honest guy, heís a hard working guy, and he wants to help this team win.

I wanted to post this because I can see that itís what is left unsaid that offends some of you, and my intention is never to offend, it makes me sad when I do believe it or not. I just want you guys to know that I love this guy, and that I truly believe his shortcomings, and silly comments are bon from youth and inexperience at being a potential Superstar. It has to be hard for a 24 year old computer nerd kid. All in all, Iíd say heís progressing amazingly, and as a fan, Iím as proud as you can be of a guy I will never meet. I donít doubt heís gonna challenge or that top spot hard and often in the next 10 years, but lets let this kid grow up first. Thatís doesnít mean you should ever stop bitching and complaining, itís a nice outlet for a fan, and it feels damn god to type ďBOSH IS A PUSSYĒ after he sucks it up. Itís our right as fans. But as long we all understand where he is, the rality of the situation, and we respect the hell out of the kid for what he ALREADY gives his franchise at such a young age, then everything is cool.

Chris Bosh is a great fucking player, he is top shelf in the NBA. Heís just young, an incomplete masterpiece, and at times, he says shit that comes out really poorly. Ever met a 24 year old kid that didnít????

Keep on rocking CB4, we love you dawg, lots, just try to simmer down on the MVP talk, and do yourself a favor, stop giving the big dags of the NBA so much respect baby, these cats canít guard you brother, you just gotta believe it yourself!!!!

His biggest problem in big matchups seems to be composure.... he looks rattled. I'm sure that will be something that improves over time.

I definately agree with you SJ about how he plays up to the competition or plays down to it, in that he gives too much respect to "better" players and teams. It's true. Garnett deserves as much respect as what he gives to his opponents. I'd like to see Bosh play every team with the same determination and tenacity wether they are Boston, LA, or Charlotte, Memphis. It's a mental hurddle he must get over.

But yeah - the dude can be scary good and he's still a pup.

This is true. But let's not treat him like he is damaged goods. It's a learning process. He is still young..... but elite all the same. We should be thankful, and should wish that we had others with his skill level.

Yeah, I guess I would agree with the Gremlin comment somewhat - but this team and especially our coaches do not do enough to maximize Bosh's potential.

What I mean to say is this - it's not enough to throw him the ball and clear that side of the floor. Even though he is our best player, it is unfair and stupid to ask him to go one-on-three without giving him enough options and without (apparently) drilling into him what he needs to do to make use of his teammates. The other day someone was comparing the Spurs' setup when Duncan has the ball in the low post with what the Raps are running with Bosh, and last night in LA we had quite a few examples of the same stupidity, with Bosh triple-teamed and noone on his side of the floor ready to receive a pass.

On defence, Bargs has proven that even on the absence of JO, he is capable of handling the heavier defender - so Bosh should have been on Gasol and not on Bynum for the majority of his minutes there. Having to bang with someone 60 pounds heavier on defence while playing extended minutes is not really a recipe for a good offensive game.

I know. What a great post.

Usually there's very few posts after any of my actual real posts...cuz really, once I've spoken TORAP, what more needs be said.
