Default Would you have rathered....

Since Chris Bosh single-handedly changed the top of the Eastern Conference for nearly a decade... it got me thinking of which my fellow Raptor fans would prefer.

As you all know, LeBron wanted him in Cleveland and Toronto was willing to do a S&T to make it happen.

It would of resulted in a team of LeBron + Bosh + current Cavs roster.
It also probably would of resulted in Wade joining Chicago with Rose, Boozer, Noah.

Now my question is.. would you rather have seen:

1. Cleveland - LeBron/Bosh/remaining Cavs
Chicago - Rose/Wade/Noah/Boozer

or

2. The current Miami Heat - Bosh/Wade/LeBron.

Personally, I'd rather 1. Although Chicago is still a good team currently and definitely better than us, at least 1 gives us a chance to win something in the next decade. Does anyone really think we of all teams have a chance against Bosh/Wade/LeBron anytime soon? I certainly don't.

Anyways, vote away. Not an important thread, just a little curious seeing as this could of changed things, a lot.

Let me clarify. I don't mean see as in for entertainment. I mean which team would you rather see as in the sense of better for the NBA and the Raptors in terms of competing for a championship.

I'd prefer Bosh going to Cleveland while Wade went to Chicago. It's much better to spread out the talent instead of stacking all of them into one team. I'd enjoy seeing a Rose/Wade + Lebron/Bosh rivalry.

I actually would've been happy if Lebron went to the Knicks instead of the Heat. Keep some form of competition within the league!

i says 2, heat for the big three.

cause it needs more motivation during every of their game (miami) to beat every oponent, even toronto.

every team in the league would come to erase this dream team they now hate...
like bosh, wade and lebron do when they decide to assemblate, other wanna to beat them for the same reason. their are all 3 the best at their spot, and so when you fight against a team like that you must give all you have to win a game, and you can only improve your game.

Bosh to Cleveland with Lebron; Wade to Chicago would have made for some interesting basketball.

I like what happened. I'm a hater. Chicago, New York, Cleveland and New jersey (and Toronto) all got screwed. LeBron and Bosh look like tools. If they don't win any titles (and it's possible - shit happens) everyone will be laughing.

The eastern conference is an easier place to play because of what they did. Having Bosh, Wade, and James spread out over the eastern conference would have made for a much tougher schedule. Instead we'll just get blown out by Miami a few times a year and that will be it. Its already bad enough having Amar'e and Boozer move over here.

I thought Lebron would fit really well in Chicago.
They have some really nice pieces to compliment his game.

Bosh and Wade I'm indifferent about. Even together, although really good, are still beatable.

imo, i like the first option, I think Cavs would of been very strong with shaq, bosh, jamison and lebron. I guess Bosh just didnt like the city. After having the NBA’s best record for 2 seasons in a row, adding a solid pf which they needed and someone who can give you 20/10, Bosh would of competed for championship in Cleveland as well. And Lebron would get much more recognition if he had won it in Cleveland with bosh.

To be honest I don't think miami would of been the best team in East if they just had Bosh and wade, I would of still put Celtics and magic up there. But, obviously Lebron joining them strengthen their team tenfold.

Ye I was thinking the same, I thought Lebron was gonna chose chicago because you got rose, lebron, gibson, and Noah. I just dont know how well he would of played along side rose.

LeBron/Rose/Noah/Boozer/Gibson/Deng

Is better than LeBron/Wade/Bosh/Miller/Chalmers/filler/filler/filler/filler

That Cavs team would be molested on the boards if they played the Bulls. The best rebounding team in the league just added another dude who grabs 10+ a game.

I wanted CHI to what they have now(Boozer+solid FA signings), NY to get Lebron, and Bosh with MIA if he didnt go to somewhere unsuspecting. NY/CHI/MIA bringing back the rivalries would have been awesome. Now its just everyone aiming for one team.

I prefer NYK sucking ass some more. There's no way they should have gotten bailed out by Lebron.
