    Honestly, this is pathetic.

    Bosh has done absolutely nothing to deserve this level of hatred. After 7 season in Toronto, Bosh has every right and legitimately acceptable reason to leave the Raps to join a better team suited to his all-star talent, his desire to consistently excel and his lifelong dream to win at least 1 NBA championship. And keep in mind that after 7 seasons, Bosh's career is already more than halfway over.

    The worst part about all the negative opinions of Bosh now is the fact that none of us would re-sign with the Raps if we were in his shoes, which makes all of the now negative, hateful critics of Bosh the biggest bunch of fucking hypocrites imaginable.

    Fuck all you pieces of shit that organized and attended this "gathering of hypocrites".

    I can already see Davis as the Bosh 2.0!

    We'll make Bosh regret leaving T.O. when we beat the team he resigns with (Miami or Chicago) come playoff time!!!

    Bargnani, time for you to shine!

    Agree. I rather have a party to dedicate for Chris Bosh.

    This will attract other free agents

    Some people just don't grasp what is going on here.

    Say you were in a beautiful relationship with a significant other and all the members of your extended family and friends loved this person.

    Now suppose one day this person says to you. Your extended family and friends can not provide me with what I need so I am checking out to someone who can.

    Does anyone think for a minute that this person and their extended family and friends would not be really upset at this other person who is now bailing?

    Come on get real people. Bosh is going to jilt, yes he has the right, MLSE, Raptors teammates, Raptors fans and the entire city of Toronto. So of course fans have a right to be mad at him. Geez

    On top of that would any of you want any of this person's clothes in your home after they jilted you? Not if you were emotionally healthy you wouldn't. If this happened to me I would make a big bond fire of whatever they left behind invite all my family and friends over and torch the junk.

    We have a right to be upset. Maybe not jersey-burning upset, but definitely upset. The guy has handled his exit with zero class and deserves to be called on it.

    Wow that's totally ignorant...Bosh has given us some excellent years. He took us to our first division championship and he did it without having half the celebrity status that VC used to command.

    Toronto owes a ton of respect to Chris Bosh. He came in at a gutter rough time for Toronto and won us a division championship. Does that mean nothing to people?

    Ever since VC gave up and forced himself out, people apparently think that if anyone leaves a city they automatically deserve to be boo'ed and disrespected which is ABSOLUTE, COMPLETE AND TOTAL GARBAGE.

    The fans help pay for Bosh's salary like they helped pay for VC's salary.

    Bosh took up the challenge and carved out his own legacy and now you PUNKS think that he deserves to be disrespected? Grow up people...anybody who boos Chris Bosh and thinks he deserves to be disrespected is NOT a Raptors fan. They're just a wanna-be punk who is bouncing along for a ride.

    The guy did what he could for us with the tools available. He never made unreasonable demands, he never threw his hands up and gave up on the team and he never disrespected the fans or the city.

    When he leaves - and more importantly when he returns on his first road game - he deserves applause.

    Nothing more, nothing less.

    Bosh should be booed when he comes back to Toronto. Bosh is the enemy now (all opponents of the raptors on the court). Bosh played hard and is a pretty nice guy. Bosh was given a big opportunity in Toronto. THe Franchise player from the beginning! Everything was done to make Chris the centre of the offense and he did pretty good offensively. He was aloud to grow as a quality mid post player and now may be the best mid post player in the NBA (maybe Gasol is better). The one area that I think is a better measurement of commitment(hustle, heart and unselfishness) to a team is on the defensive end. This is where Bosh let his team down and you can blame ANdrea all you like but Bosh is as bad on the ball defender as the raptors had last year. Secondly his blocks and steals are lower then his first year in the nba. So how could he be a better weakside defender now then when he came in the league at 19. He let the Raptors down on the defense end. He hasn't improved his defense since he was 19 years old. What type of power forward averages .97 blocks and .6 steals a game and plays 38 minutes a night.
    Add in the fact that Bosh didn't stick it out when the Raptors team is the third youngest in the league. The raptors were two years away from being contenders. As the demars, weems, amirs, andreas come into their mid 20's they will be a force to deal with. Either way I think the raptors will be about the same this year as they were last year. Probably 9-11 in the east and if they get lucky 500. Still we should Boo Bosh for not working on his weakness in those 7 great years and leaving before the guys peak.

    i'm confused. why should we celebrate a player who never made it out of the first round of the playoffs?

    7 years of being the franchise player of a shitty team...

    i was unaware that basketball was the game of giving out gold medals for mediocrity

    Thanks for callin B.S. Realizar

    I've said it several times b4, all this hating on CB is undeserved imo. He deserves a legitimate shot at success while he is at his peak. Unfortunately he's not going to get that in TDot.

    I think the better question is why should we boo a player who took NOTHING from the franchise and gave it 7 great years?

    Hell why boo a player that leaves a city for free agency anyways??

    Did Bosh have weak defensive skills? HELL YES. I'm certainly not denying that, but I continue to fail to see why he should be DISRESPECTED.

    Did he do something to the city or the fans of Toronto? Did he give up? Did he insult us or our city? Did he make life unbearably difficult for BC or Sam Mitchell or Jay Triano? Did he stifle the development of another player for his own ego?

    I mean I'm trying to think of reasons why we should BOO a player who set franchise records and did what none of our previous over-heralded "superstars" (Damon, T-Mac, VC) did when they were players.

    Nobody boos Mighty Mouse, and really people never booed T-Mac until the VC fiasco.

    So what is this? Repressed punishment? Do you feel like Bosh owes us something?

    Why should Bosh have to be perfect? Almost all Raptors fans know the man is IMPERFECT. It was a team effort that won us an Atlantic Division chip, but CB4 gave just as much effort as anyone else.

    Why aren't we all booing JO? He cost more and gave us less than CB4 ever did.

    I'm not saying fans can't be upset. But there's a f'ing huge difference between being upset and disrespecting a player that gave us a FAIR CHANCE. He gave us as much of a chance as any other player did.

    heinz57, your comment on "why celebrate a player who never made it out of the first round of the playoffs" is ignorant. I hope you realize that. Do you think we would have even MADE the playoffs without him after VC pussyed out??

    Your mentality is that you "expect" things from him. No offense, but the man is not GUTTING our roster to pay for his salary. He hasn't done anything to PREVENT us from making moves. And, if the rumors are true, he might try to send something our way through a S&T if it comes down to that.

    Is that the mentality and attitude of a player who deserves to be disrespected?

    I'm telling you to treat the man with respect because he took the franchise - whether you like it or not - to places that NO ONE ELSE HAS.

    It may have been with a team effort, but he played right along. He didn't have a prima donna attitude and pout when things didn't go his way. He didn't quit on the team. He fought just as hard for this team as any other of the players we love to cheer for (Alvin Williams, JYD, Oak).

    So WHY are you insisting that we disrespect him? Is it because we don't like the decision he's making? Is it because you think WE as the fans deserve more from him?

    I would love to see the Raptors win and make it out of the 1st round, but it certainly isn't CHRIS BOSH's fault that it didn't happen. But here we are, with you "fans" saying we should crucify him because he didn't do enough.

    HE DID MORE THAN ANY OF OUR OTHER SUPERSTARS DID. And did it with a lot less drama and WITHOUT costing our team anything.

    Think about that.
