Ken Berger from CBS Sports shared the scoop that Bosh might be hesitant about joining LeBron in Cleveland because the city “doesn’t do it for Bosh.” So here we go, another chapter in the Bosh saga continues.
K.C. Johnson from the Chicago Tribune is reporting the latest from the Bulls camp regarding Bosh. We all know the Raptors desire Noah but the Bulls aren’t biting. Chicago have proposed a package involving Taj Gibson, multiple first-round draft picks and a trade exception.
Chris Broussard from ESPN is reporting that LeBron wants to stay in Cleveland and he wants Bosh to join him. Broussard made the assertion this morning on ESPNRadio’s Mike and Mike in the Morning program. According to him, part of the reason there has been a delay in LeBron’s announcement is because he’s trying to… Read more »
I’ll avoid speculating on anything because I too am guilty of reading too much into things. I’ve sworn that I’ll just shut up about free agency unless something of real substance pops up, not just Chris Broussard sounding a horn on ESPN and using phrases like “could still happen”, “possible scenario”, and “sources close to”, which basically all translate to “Oh crap, it’s time to be on air so better come up with something so I don’t look like I’m out of touch and that nobody returns my calls”.
Changed my mind; I do have something to add: TRoss. I generally doubt that players pay attention to what-all’s being said out there (out here) but I wondered a couple weeks ago when, as the griping-crescendo was building and about to peak towards TRoss, he seemed to break out of whatever low-level of funk he was in, to suddenly play a bit better. So … I’ll throw two cents into the internet-ether to say that TRoss would be a much-much better player and would earn himself many extra-large paycheques come contract time, if he would decide once-and-for-all that he *had* to be better and to start by driving hard to the hoop, and often! I don’t expect to see an ego-maniacal-attitude (can you imagine, tho? Damn, he’d be dangerous). But if he got a little bit angry or impatient (even) at his slow progression, thus far … it couldn’t hurt.
I remember reading a lot of years ago how then-captain Bobby Clarke of the Philadelphia Flyers was pissed at one of his talented line-mates (Bill Barber, I think) who was sleep-walking, so between periods, he yelled at him loudly and whacked him hard with a stick, across his shin-pads … and it worked. (Next period, the guy scored, the team won, etc, etc.) So … maybe a fellow Rap could … you know, wake him up, just a bit more? A stick probably isn’t necessary, but .. maybe throw a shoe at him? Because he’s too talented to not be on his way (yet) to becoming a big star in this league. So c’mon DeMar. Give him a little Compton-style. Get him angry. Without JJ for a bit, you’re gonna need him.
