it's a simple question. Bosh is paid and wants to be considered in the same conversation with garnett, duncan, nowitzki. Do you honestly think he's playing like that now?

It may take a bit more time for everyone to follow suit, but I feel a lot more confident that Jay T can right this ship than I did last game. Blazers are one of the hottest teams in the league and we had our chances to beat them so I think we have the personnel to play in this league although a better back-up pg would help. These guys gotta get more re's
Exactly. This team gets outrebounded on the offensive glass 16-6 instead of 18-4 we win the game. It wasn't that bad. They just need to become mediocre at rebounding instead of AWFUL. J.T. has only had 1 practice or something absurd to work with. IMO the results have already been impressive, at least compared to the last few games of Smitch's reign of terror. Benching Bosh for taking a dumb 3 = +1.

Things keeps up and they WILL be playing good D and hitting the glass.

And, even if he doesn't get close to an MVP. How about giving the guy some credit for having the balls to annouce his intentions.
I didn't say he IS....if you can read i said he said "I WANT to be MVP"
Wanting and being are two different things!!!!!!

Bosh is NOT a franchise player?!?!?

YO wtf, what honestly do you have against Triano... ? The man has had basically no time to work with this team.

The raps played HIS GAME the first quarter... fast breaks, him yelling run run run... raps up by 16... 2nd-4th quarter raps basically went back to SMITCHS "half court dribbling the ball up the court looking at the bench for the coach to call a play afer a fucking rebound fast break option" game.

You honestly think that last play was made for Bosh only? fuck no... Bosh should of drove and kicked out, who the fuck tries to do whatever the fuck he did past 2 bigs from the top of the 3point line?

If the Raps played Triano's game from the first quarter for the whole game, it would be a different result. Benching Bosh was fucking GREAT... I like a coach with BALLS...

hmmm, he doesnt bring leadership, intensity, defense, he isnt clutch in big games, he never steps up vs elite defenders or teams, he hasnt won a playoff round. He is an awesome number 2.

Bosh was an embarrassment today. He took terrible shots, didn't box out, and his defense was non-existent. Oh and that play wasn't designed for him to take that shot like that. He was supposed to kick out to Jose, would would then either shoot it, or pass it around the perimeter.

But at the same time I'm a Realist!
I Love the Raptors
But my love for them isn't going to make me say everything is nice and dandy!
I don't like sugar-coating things!

Honestly, i feel sorry for any team in 2010 that takes Bosh thinking he will be the man on their team.... on the other hand i envy if a team like Detriot gets him where he can fit into a system and be a 2nd option, but really as far as a franchise player he is Tweener fools gold.

Considering that triano has only been coach for about 4 days now, the team played much better defense than the last 3 games. Yes i know we lost but there was more energy today. As for bosh's last play, well we knew it was going to him. Aldridge had his number today. No need to be a hero when you have jose sitting on the 3 point line. Jose was on fire in the 4th. That was jose's shot.

Grain of salt, either way, you could argue the other 3 teams we played were tougher and we were on the road, after the last two eggs we laid we had better bring something at home.

Right. He's not nearly as talented or clutch as Vince Carter. Everything else about him seems pretty similar, though.

OK, Solid shooting(most nights)

Usually rebounds decently.


On the offensive side, only thing I would like to see him improve on is his speed in decision making

I've been saying it for a while... Bosh is the big man version of Arenas, Iverson, Redd, Martin, etc. There's a reason all the teams with franchise players who score 25ppg but don't play d or improve their teammates, never do well.

Yeah, the only way Bosh is winning a championship is as a #2. For his sake, he should probably go to NY with LeBron.
