NBA Free Agent Rumors: Letting Chris Bosh Walk is an Option for Toronto Raptors

Are you turned off by the way Bosh acts lately?
Bryan Colangelo should be coming dangerously close to shooting down the circus we came to know as 2010 free agency period. Well Bryan, it is about time...
Between tweets, dinners, covert meetings, people popping out of nowhere to pass out unfounded rumors, and worse yet, possible tempering, I don't think we would be able to look back after 10 years and find anything to be proud of.
Toronto Raptors fans were initially shocked to hear that the front office might be fine with getting nothing in return for their franchise player. I am sure their first response did include at least one swear word.
But if one carefully weighs the options and visualizes the possible outcomes, it should be fairly obvious to anyone with average vision why the Toronto Raptors front office has every right to think about standing up for themselves...........
Believe me when I say this, that most of the fans already prefer getting nothing in return for Chris Bosh rather than getting someone to hinder those guys' development. If nothing else, they are tired of overpaid and underachieving players stealing minutes from young talents.
Last but not the least, Bryan Colangelo is refusing to be pushover. He is aggressive and assertive and basically saying, "If we don't get something of value in return, we will not just get something to get something."
He is also letting Chris Bosh know that if he wants the extra year and $30 million, he better start working with the team and help them to create a value of his departure.
Toronto Raptors fans! Today, you should be proud of your general manager and stand by him. If anything, you will walk away with your dignity and self-respect.
