    I'd rather have Noah over Bosh when all the mitigating factors are considered. I think Bosh has peaked statistically and shown no real desire to improve the weaker facets of his game. While I love that he added the 3 point weapon to his arsenal, I'd much rather see him show up to camp preaching defense and accountability.

    Offensively Bosh is the perfect piece to add if your team struggles to score points, the raptors don't have that problem. Interior defense is problem 1 and 1a and Noah addresses that problem more than Bosh ever could.

    I would much much much rather go into next season with a front court of Bargs and Noah than Bosh and Bargs. Only way it happens is if Bron/Wade force Chicago's hand by saying they won't come without Bosh. I don't really see that happening, but its not that implausible. As perfect a fit as Noah is for Chicago he isn't so integral that he should prevent Rose, Bron and Bosh teaming up.

    Quite frankly, neither option excites me in the least bit.

    Since the Raptors are in the east why would we help another eastern team load their roster with stars?

    noah would be amazing for the Raptors and a perfect compliment to bargnani, he is a very talented scorer as we all know but does lack toughness which noah brings in boat loads

    What might make this thing more plausible is if Chicago unloaded Deng and his bloated contract to Toronto along with Noah for Bosh. I could see Chicago doing that. Not sure if the salaries work (could someone weigh in on that aspect?), but I'm sure they could make it work. And Deng, while DEFINITELY overpaid, is a good, solid player who would be an upgrade on any of our swing men.

    Ideally, you'd like to trade your star player to the other conference, but sometimes the ideal choice is not the most realistic one. If Bosh decides to sign with CHicago, then the Raptors could say they would only agree to a sign and trade if Noah was involved. That would not only weaken Chicago, but give the Raptors the best return they can get on Bosh. Toronto may prefer Bosh to go to Houston for example, but in the end, it's not up to the Raptors.

    There is as much chance of Chicago including Noah as there is Rose. Noah is more valuable than Bosh for a litany of reasons. He is cheaper, younger, still improving, a defensive minded rim protector, steps up his game in the playoffs, passionate, a leader, plays well with Rose, the perfect compliment to an offensive minded PF and most importantly will be be available for a contract extension post new CBA and likely will be making half of what Bosh makes.

    As delusional as Bosh is, I feel he would veto Chicago if Noah wasn't his front court mate. The guy spent the last 4 years playing with Bargs, I think he recognizes a keeper at center when he sees one.
    noah is a good player but i don't think he is an all star player is offensive game is waaaaaay to raw the bulls would be pure idiots to choose him over bosh
