Default Who Would You Rather Have: Hedo or Bosh?

Who on earth is Maurice Brooks and how in the hell did he get a gig with NBA.com as a writer?

Brooks: Hedo is having a career season for a team that is in first place in its division. Bosh is having a decent season for a team that is losing ground in the playoff race and has no chance of winning its division. Do yourself a favor and check out Hedo's stats, they may surprise you.
I understand Hedo having a breakthrough season, but to say that you'd take Hedo over Bosh is a little extreme don't you think?

Anyhow, I did myself that favour and compared their stats. His point is? Oh ya, Hedo has a couple all-star type players surrounding him in D12 and Rashard Lewis while Bosh has who exactly?

still like bosh. much of what hedo gets is the result of dwight howard's beastliness down low. i know he's capable of creating shots, but frankly, he doesn't require a double team as often.
just to reiterate doc's astuteness on this matter!

Exactly Cling ... we don't have those additional players that attract double teams like those 3 in Orlando do. So when your a good shooter like Hedo is you get a ton more open looks than most would get. Not trying to take anything away from him, but scoring is much easier to come by for those guys than it is for our team.

Bosh is the only one that attracts the double team. We need at least one more player that gets that type of respect and attention on offense. Once we do I can guarantee you the Raptors improve ten fold.

In other news the tandem of Jameer Nelson and Carlos Arroyo is better than TJ and Jose.

Not to mention a really bad attempt at humour.

Hedo wouldnt allow Jared Jeffries to go for 21+10.

Bosh's D is embarrassing.
