Hollinger: Bosh Is Best Partner For LeBron This Summer
May 17, 2010 5:36 PM EST
Stats guru John Hollinger of ESPN applies a range of criteria for analyzing who would be the ideal sidekick for LeBron James among the other free-agents and players on teams that have enough cap room to sign James.
Chris Bosh ranked the best teammate for James, followed by Dirk Nowitzki, David Lee, Amar'e Stoudemire and Carlos Boozer. Derrick Rose ranks eighth on Hollinger's list and Dwyane Wade ranks ninth.
Hollinger calls Bosh "the perfect companion"
and says Lee is "near perfect," though he notes that neither Lee nor Boozer is adequate defensively.
