    Default Bosh or Wade?

    I don't mean whose the better player or the player you would rather build around. I mean who in 6 years (when their current Max deal would finish) would be better. Basically who is the safer player to give the Max to (they both will still get it and the extra 30 mill).

    Wade is already 28 and has already had multiple knee problems (not great for a guy who relies on athleticism as much he does). With all the bumps and brusies Wade has acquired through his reckless playing style and you add that to the amount of mileage in his career (Olympics and Playoffs). I'm not saying Wade will completely fall apart half-way through his new Max contract but he could regress enough to where his contract could burden a team.

    Bosh is not only 2 years younger than Wade, also usually SG's dont outlast PF career unless they completely devout themselves to taking care of their body (see Bryant, Kobe). Plus Bosh is a finesse PF and that would probably cause CB's NBA lifespan to increase.

    Also you have to account for the up-coming CBA coming and how it will tighten up the NBA salary cap, basically not allowing teams to build super teams anymore. Again this is not a slight against D-Wade or anything but how Bosh could be the better sign than Wade this off-season.

    Players need not worry about the upcoming CBA hurting them financially. By the time the Obama administration gets done with it and they will get involved, it will very union friendly. You betcha'

    That's just a silly question. Of course Wade. The guy is up there with LeBron, Kobe, and Melo. "True" franchise player if you will - can take the game over by himself.

    I don't think you guys understand my question, I meant who is the better investment for 6 years. Wade is top 3 player and IMO the only player than Kobe I would give the ball to at the end of game, BUT he is 28 and has serious knee problems, add that to his reckless style and that equals uncertain future into his 30s

    Just put away your preconceived notions of Bosh and just look at through the business side. I would be scared that Wade could regress and be burden for my teams cap flexibility.

    Obama has created a deficit that will never be paid off(Think $57 trillion). He has created more deficit in a year than the entire American history prior combined. He's screwed the American people over with the banker bail outs and what he's doing with health care reform is unconstitutional. If he somehow manages to get reelected(hello, new war? Iran maybe?) then things are not going to look much better long term. By the time the Obama administration gets done the American currency won't be the world reserve currency is more like it. Unemployment is through the roof and he lied about what he was going to do about the war. He lied about transparency, everything of significance is late hour backdoor dealing. I haven't even rolled up my sleeves yet in talking about what's wrong with the Obama administration but I'll leave it there. The players are going to get hosed compared to what they're currently getting and its going to stay like that for some time because people who don't have jobs don't go to basketball games or buy NBA trinkets. People forced to take pay cuts or reduced hours don't either. Just wait a little longer, we might see hyper inflation in the U.S. before its all said and done. Watch out then. I mean they're printing paper money like its going out of style. Paper not backed by gold, paper backed by paper.

    Wade gets my vote. He's going to have to change the way he plays soon though if he wants to have a long
