The boys at the home office in Athabasca, Alberta have just faxed this in. The category is Top Ten Reasons Chris Bosh will re-sign with the Raptors.

  1. Money! Raptors will refuse to pull a sign-and-trade forcing Bosh to get his deal in T.O.
  2. MuchMusic will always be glad to have him on, MTV would be like, Who are you again?
  3. This is a great city to underachieve and still get respect.
  4. Only with the Raptors will he have a chance of being the best player on a team.
  5. The less he’s on US national TV, the less the chances of everybody finding out he’s not what he’s cranked up to be.
  6. Colangelo will perform the sell-job of his life and in the process earn himself an extension.
  7. Who in their right mind would give up a chance to play with Marcus Banks?
  8. As part of the deal, Triano will let him call plays and Colangelo will let him make personnel decisions.
  9. Soft media. No one in Toronto will question anything he does both basketball-wise or off the court.

…and the #1 reason why Chris Bosh will re-sign in Toronto…drum roll….

  1. There’s zero pressure to win.
