    I for one who really respects villanueva's opinion, hes a class act
    hes obviously close with Bosh
    so this, for me, is as close as it gets to knowing the truth

    I don't know about class act, but I have to admit I loved him as a Raptor. The weird thing is he faded into obscurity AFTER leaving Toronto while it usually happens the other way around. Regardless, I didn't know he and Bosh were close like that

    Look at it this way. Almost everyone else who is informing us on Bosh's destination is someone who won't name their source. Charlie is saying flat out saying that Bosh is going to Miami and it's being shy about it by going through a media channel as an "unidentified source". Unless he's extremely slow, he's not going to go around dropping bomb shells like this unless he's pretty darn sure. Whether or not his information is correct is another story, but I do believe he believes in what he is saying.

    I've never heard of Villanueva being in Bosh's inner circle, nor do I see Bosh as the kind of guy who would let some other random dude make one of the most important announcements of his career. Bosh, or his agent will be announcing his decision. CV has cited no inside source probably because there is none and this is just his heartfelt opinion. Thanks CV, but no thanks.

    Villanueva said months ago via Twitter that Bosh wasn't going to re-sign with Toronto. He's stating his opinion, but since Bosh hasn't even met with any other teams, I don't think anything's a done deal, yet.

    Also, why did Marc Stein and Charlie Villanueva say the exact same thing word for word?

    Who did you hear of being in Chris Bosh's inner circle? I can't name many. He's not as public with that stuff as LeBron is.

    Charlie did say months ago Bosh wasn't resigning and he was right. Now he's saying Miami, let's see if he's right again. I don't know how Charlie got his information so I'm not going to speculate. Right now though, he's one for one and his second attempt is in the air. Won't be too long now.

    God, this Riley guy cant keep a secret at all. I wonder if he has told Wade who is making plans to visit with the Knicks next week....and tada...with Bosh no less. Its all so confusing.

    How was Villaneuva right the first time? Bosh has left yet, and at that time, it was certainly up in the air. When LeBron was drafted, I said something about him eventually ending up in New York. If he does end up there, it doesn't mean I should be relied upon for inside information on LeBron. It means I had no idea, but ended up being lucky with my guess. Same goes for Villanueva IF Bosh ends up leaving.

    There's a big difference between you and a former teammate who may be a current friend.

    Not if we're both just guessing.

    When you say "Bosh wasn't resigning"... if you mean he's not resigning after July 1st, it may very well be true but at least wait for him to sign somewhere else before awarding the "one for one"; if you mean he's not resigning before July 1st, EVERYONE knew that from last summer, so him saying that months ago is hardly ESP.

    From RealGM:

    Henry Thomas, the agent for Chris Bosh, specifically refuted a report that his client has decided to sign with the Bulls and generally denied that Bosh has made any decision about his upcoming free agency.

    "Completely untrue," Bosh's agent wrote in an e-mail to NBA.com. "He hasn't decided anything."

    One report cited an NBA general manager who thought Bosh was certain to follow LeBron James to Chicago. Another GM was cited saying that Bosh had already made plans to sign in Miami.
