Cut Raptors a little slack fellas, because after all we havent done anything meaningful in this league since the Carter days.
BTW, my comment about cutting Bosh a little slack was said in jest. I'm a little annoyed by his video the other day where he mentioned how much he's been looking forward in being a free agent. More evidence that the man just cared about himself the entire time.
And for the record, if Bosh were a smart and strong man he would be able to suppress his weakness and handle this as James is handling it. Professionally and quietly.

Consider, THE MAPLE LEAVES, ARGOS and RAYS ( I mean JAYS) historical records.
Being one round deeper was like the closest thing to LORD Stanely this CITY has gotten.
I Jest DA!
JOOoo Colangelo, Pull the trigger JAA!
Bosh has 2-3 good years left. THE RAPTORS mgmt know this, Bosh knows this.
Both sides need each other to make this work.
For a second, Assume we get nothing in return. Our team pretty much is what you have now.
Maybe a strong role player signing happens....i.e. Mr. Lee. Hedo Sticks around and so does Jose.
So how do you feel about that?
How can someone forget sweet swinging Joe's three run shot to left field?
I can never forget the back-to-back. But that was long ago. I recall being on Danforth the night the jays pulled the first championship. I was waving my Jays flag out my car window.. when some scum ran off with it... right from my hand.
MLSE is no different then the owners of Rangers/Knicks... they want to make money.
Awesome how quickly everyone is finally realizing what a douchebag RuPaul really is. No question at all he was stat padding this year just waiting for this moment, and cost his TEAM a chance to compete and play in the post season because of it. He is and was a selfish, attention whore who padded his stats evry chance he got, even though it meant the team around him would not improve. He has never really cared about the other guys on his team and it has always shown during the games. He rarely ever talks about or to anyone else, but only ever talks about himself. I hope he ends up with the worst deal possible in a situation where he cannot win because he's the MAN, and that we shut him down every time we face that RuPaul pansy. BC should not do anything at all to help this dick, and only accept back pieces or a trade exception that will help the Raptors. If not he should make Bosh sign with someone else for the five year max deal, giving up the sixth year because by then he'll be a sack of shit anyway. If Bosh cannot score a deal he likes Raptors should offer him $10 million a year to ensure he goes.

Also, one could probably argue that he wasn't even that professional (basketball-wise) toward the later years of his Raptors tenure, with his attempt at acting/comedy and his time spent on developing a side business (his web dev venture). Compare that to some of the greats who spent their time mostly analyzing their opponents on video. I'm not saying shame on him for doing all that stuff -- it's his life and he has the right to live it however he wants -- but it's not like he suddenly started showing his "kid" side (as rev20002 suggests).
I'm not trying to absolve Bosh of responsibility for his actions, but people get in the habit of looking up to these athletes and forgetting that most of them are basically spoiled college dropouts. He's got a lot of rich and powerful men kissing his feet, and he's let it go to his head. Yeah, sure, he's being a douche.
But he's also simply acting his age.
The only difference between him, DWade and LeBron is that people have been kissing THEIR feet for YEARS. This is the first time Bosh is really feeling like a superstar, so he's having trouble with it. This b.s. is old news for LeBron.
