    Default Bosh: "Just to be clear. I never said ......"

    He should quit while he's ahead.

    That's not what I heard. This is what I heard:

    "...I'm not considering staying in Toronto."


    (I suffer from selective hearing!)

    Seriously, as much as I like Bosh I'd question his sanity if he decided to come back to the Raps.

    I haven't yet said that I hope the Raptors land Noah and draft picks for Chris Bosh.

    you know i've been doing some thinking(shocking, i know.) and what if this is the best thing that could ever happen to the raptors.


    if bosh really loves this franchise and this city as it seems he wants them to be a winner.
    that's why if he leaves he'll do an S&T. that's why he said he hasn't tooken toronto out of the equation... or so i think...

    As well as him being as smart as I think he is, he's thinking "wow this city is amazing and the fans are amazing and they've embraced me as the face of their city. I'd really like to stay hear and the fans as well as me, ofcourse deserve a winner.

    What's the only or most likely way that can happen...?

    hmm... how about I pressure them into bringing in another star player that isn't past his prime and pressure them into making all the right moves to get a winner or say i'm leaving.

    that's it, it's a win-win situation if they don't do the moves I want I leave. if they do what needs to be done i get to stay in a place that i love and also have a competitive team."

    a bit wacky some of you think ofcourse (there's always some). but, i at least ask you to think about it and think about it hard if you read between the lines of bosh's comments he seems like he has that in the back of his head.

    If Bosh wants to stay the only way to make this team better is by getting them to spend money. We have too much salary tied up in 4 guys (50 mil if Bosh re-signs). If the raptors management team thinks that their big name players is happy with the way things are do you really think that they will spend the extra money to make this team a contender? Not likely.

    Good for Bosh, I think he's keeping the fans that support him and the franchise that has given him so much in mind while he is making his decision. Trust me when I say we need him more than he needs us, If he walks we get 8 mil in cap space and nothing else. How much better can Colangelo make this team with 8mil in cap space and no Chris Bosh.

    Please don't start exiling our best player and only bargaining chip while he is still a Raptor or you just might get your wish.

    OK I don't think I've ever posted here, but anyway...

    I cannot understand how people are "losing respect" for CB and believing that he's suddenly developed this "lack of class", all because he "tweeted" to his "followers" a rhetoric question asking where he should play next year. Oh wait, I forgot, he also edited his bio and changed his location to "Everywhere"! What a jerk!

    Do people realize how silly this whole thing actually is? He's played his heart out as the face of the franchise for the past 4-5 years, and now we're going to beat him down over his Twitter account? Vince deserved it, Chris absolutely does not.

    B..bbb..ut what if the Raps are the only ones to offer him the max!

    His motivations, in my view, are seriously suspect.

    The more he speaks the bigger the hole he is digging himself.

    Seriously I wouldn't be suprised if next week he is going to be spotted wearing a Miami Heat Jersey somewhere.

    Seriously he is a silly kid who posted a simple question on twitter and some people are acting like old ladies on the subject.

    He has always been a classy guy, don't try to make up excuses to hate him so it is easier on yourself when he leaves, It aint his fault his this franchise has done nothing in his time with the Raptors.

    Good luck Chris, I hope you do stay mate, if not I won't hold it against you.

    I know, I wouldn't care much either way. If he leaves, time to write a new chapter in Raptors history, if not, hopefully BC can finally get his shit together. This teasing is making him look really bad, if he actually does come back, he better have an insane season where he finally gets voted into the All-Star team instead of being the good-player-on-bad-team All-Star.

    Co-sign that one. This man played his heart out, and the respect should be there regardless if he's having a bit of an identity crisis lately. This team is better with CB. Period. Those who say otherwise are just afraid of the heartbreak that will come if he does decide to leave.

    Bosh will not sign if Bargnani, Calderon and Hedo are still in Toronto. BC will have to work some serious magic to move one or more of these players, but I think Bosh is smart enough to see that Toronto is going no where with those three players at its core. Even if BC makes trades for 50 cents on the dollar he has to make some other move to encourage Bosh to stay. Unfortunately, I think that Bargs and Jose are easier to move (relatively speaking) than Hedo.

    Ideally BC could move Bargs and Jose for two servicable defensively minded players at the 2 and 5 spot (and maybe a pick or two) I would make those moves. Leaving Jack, Hedo, and Bosh as starters, with either Sonny and Amir (assuming they resign) or the 2 new pieces.

    Am I the only one who thinks it's kindof cool that someone feels so connected to his fans that he asks for advice on stuff like this? Maybe it was a misstep, but it seems to me like his heart was in the right place.

    Just to be clear, never not using double negatives isn't doing nothing for making nobody not look neither smart nor dumb nowhere!

    Bosh is back in town, just saw him driving around with the beats blaring in his Range Rover. This was at like 9am on Peter.

    Maybe this means he's happy to be back?! Just kidding. It still doesn't mean anything.
