The Heat struggled at the start of the season before Joel Anthony found his groove and Wade and Lebron started including him more.

Once they did they won 21 of 22 games and ended up 2nd in the East.
fixed.

Yeah - Miami didn't even really want him. Neither did NY, Houston, LAL, San Antonio, or Chicago. There are a lot of confident opinions based on nothing but a strong desire to see Bosh as some kind of failure. That's entirely obvious at this point.

I disagree about that.... I just think he's not as great as some have made him out to be.... There are several PF's that have passed him over the last year in terms of overall impact and ability in my mind. He's not a failure, but he's certainly not a franchise talent either.

He's averaging 20ppg/9rpg/1.2blks as a third option in Miami, while Randolph is averaging 21.5ppg/9rpg/0.6blks in Memphis as the number one option (since Gay is out) in the playoffs. Yeah, not a top player at all.

I'd be curious to know who those PFs are....

I could certainly understand the argument for Griffin... although he doesn't have half of Bosh's skill. He was flat-out dominant though.

Dirk is still there as well... perhaps KG too (although he's on the decline).

Can't think of another that I'd take over Bosh though.

He still has to prove himself as a playoff performer, but so far so good in that area. There are lots of good players in the league. It's not about individuals though is it. Griffin didn't do so well. A complete and utter failure? Or the biggest failure? Or was that Kevin Love? Oh - I know - it was David Lee!!! And Boozer is absolutely not a failure, but he certainly wilted now didn't he?

Aside from Aldridge I don't see what you are referring to when you talk of so many PF's surpassing him. Oh wait - Aldridge couldn't even put his team on his back and win a playoff series? FAILURE!!!!!

Oh - you didn't say that the failure of the Raptors to advance was on him? My bad. Must've dreamt it. Stop invading my dreams!!!!

No... I said, if he claimed to be an MVP talent as he did, then those failures are on him.... I've never heard Aldridge make those claims. Z-bo? No. Dirk? Nope. Gasol? Don't think so.

I hate that I'm in your dreams.... but maybe it's because of my glutes... I've been working very hard!

I take Alderidge. I think he is better on both ends. He has quicker first step
and can take it the rim more consistently.

I don't get it, he was injured half the series. Either way were talking about a single player not a team no?

Based on one good season as oppposed to Bosh who's been playing at this level for 5+ seasons?

To each their own.
