Surprise surprise, he's ripping our Star player who was one of the better players on the gold medal winning team and is a 4 time All-Star. I wonder if he'd rip a guy in NY that put up 23/10 numbers?

less overated then dirk nowistki who is more of a jump shooter , worse rebounder, worse defender, and somehow gets more FT's with 90% of his shots fading away(oh thats right, jersey sales, germany-america vs canada)

Guess this is as good a time as any for my first post...

this guy always rips the Raps and I think he's looking way too much into some things.
I mean you really can't call KG one of the most overrated in the league because of 2 or 3games. He brings other things like toughness and leadership that he failed to mention in that article.

I don't put too much value in what Rosen says

For saying Bosh grabs a good portion of easier "finesse rebounds"?

For stating he shoot sa tonne of jumpers?

For stating his only real received Kudo's for Defence came as a member of Team USA playing inferior competition?

Why?

Which of those statements is false? None.

He isn't that great. He's damn good, but he hasn't shown he is anything more than that so far.

i can't believe we're still hashing this out again and again.

who qualifies as 'great'? kobe, lebron, wade, paul, maybe a few others. blah blah blah, it's been said a million times.

what are the chances of us getting any of those guys? zero. does Bosh rank in the next tier? yes, clearly. 20/10, leads the team, multiple time allstar, blah blah blah.

so, Bosh is pretty much as good a star as we can possibly get. does that make him top 50 of all time, clearly no. but why do we need to keep saying over and over that he's not one of those guys when it's clear to everyone?

20 or so teams in the league do not have one of the top 10 guys in the league. i'm not too worried if we're not one of those teams. that's just reality.

Charlie Rosen shitting on the Raptors via his mouth yet again? Shocker. Listen, this guy's credibility was lost long ago. I don't pay attention to FoxSports.com anymore. Its a waste of time.

Don't feel too bad though, he also threw Chris Paul under the bus. What a @#$%'in moron.

Good, he's overrated. Now no team will want him and we can keep him at a low cost lol. But of course nobody is that stupid and the other teams KNOW what Bosh is capable of when surrounded by talent.

Because that's what the market will dictate.
