Where would you rank Chris Bosh, in terms of the other big men of the NBA, and where do you see him playing next year?
David Thorpe (12:18 PM)

He's a top 6 player-haven't I said that before? And it looks like they have things going in Toronto, so he certainly may end up there
An American journalist surmising that CB4 may stay in Toronto?

Should the East just start the playoffs with the top 4 teams (Cleveland, Orlando, Atlanta, Boston)? Do you really think a team like Toronto/Charlotte/Miami will upset one of the big boys in the first round?
David Thorpe (12:19 PM)

Hmm, let's see; Bosh, Wade, Larry Brown. Yep, upsets can be had.

Coach,whats your take on DeRozan's future considering he's one of the youngest guys in the league. Is he a future legit starter on a contender or more likely to end up a bench guy?
David Thorpe (12:23 PM)

He reminds me of Gerald Green in some respects, though I think he's a better player than Green. He's holding his own, and will have every chance at being a long term starter.

When are your ESPN brethren going to write *anything* about the Raptors. Second best record in the NBA over the past two months. 17-6 in their last 23, after a nightmare schedule (and 9 new players) to start the season. They might be a Marcus Camby away from winning a few playoff series.
David Thorpe (12:27 PM)

I'll look into it. But this is what I expected all along.

Jordan (Toronto)

What's your opinion on American Media perpetuating myths about having all this intimate knowledge of Chris Bosh leaving Toronto and guaranteeing he won't return to the Raptors, when local Toronto papers and CB himself saying he hasn't decided?
David Thorpe (12:35 PM)

Go ahead, pile on us Americans. Everyone else is.

Aaron (MUC)

I am confused about this fascination with Bosh. He has spent his whole career in the Weak-East, yet his team has only finished better than .500 one time, and he has led his team to exactly 3 playoff wins. Since when does this make someone a top-6 player. The guy is supremely over-rated,
David Thorpe (12:50 PM)

You mean like KG was?

John (Toronto)

Chris Bosh has told me he is staying in Toronto. What do you say to that?
David Thorpe (12:53 PM)

Then it must be so.

the last answer was pretty clever... and now that you mention it, I kind of shiver at the Gerald Green resemblance..... but only kind of...

Bosh is getting alot of good press lately. Olympic Team, All-Star Team, NBA Player of the Week. Where are all the Haters? Lets close it out with the red-hot sixers. Gotta dominate against Dalembert-Brand-Speights.
