Arrow Slam Online: Right Kind of Buzz

Last month, Chris Bosh became the Toronto Raptors’ all-time leading scorer — news to some, old news to others. Keep in mind this article isn’t about the milestone itself, or how it helps bury another trace of VC’s past.

This isn’t about how the milestone proves little in a franchise that’s only 15 years old, or how it’s more meaningful than it is. This won’t boast Bosh or praise a team that, before its hot streak, was becoming one of the worst defensive teams in NBA history. What I will do is map out a player that has been subject to so much criticism in his seven-year career that it takes a RuPaul joke for anyone to take notice.

If you’ve followed Chris through his time in TO you know how much media attention he receives north of the border, and how little attention he attracts from the US. These days it’s different. Bosh gets buzz… so big, he can probably sell a blank disc. Mainly because out on the court this season, he looks more like the brontosaurus he resembles – larger than we’ve ever known. Unlike any other season, Chris has started strong and improved on it. His stellar play must have rubbed his teammates the right way because the Raptors have the L in a vice.

An average of 24 points and 11 boards has him as the only player in the top 10 in scoring and rebounding. And in a season that may be his last as a Raptor, CB4 looks to be at the pinnacle of his game. Some of his skills have flourished, but most of them were always there, just as untapped ability. Bosh’s critics should be making their way back into the shadows unless he shows any sign of slowing down. Listed below are weaknesses that has held Bosh back his entire career. Difference is, are the same criticism he seems to be extinguishing...

I think he does deserve max money, the only argument against that is that he hasn't "proven" he can lead a team but when you're surrounded with mediocrity its pretty hard to do that. Even then, CB4 has been our leader on the court ever since Vince left and we've leaned on him to carry us time and time again.
