    Chris Bosh: 7 seasons, 1 2nd-team All-NBA, 0 All-D's, 5 lotteries. Career: 211-320. Playoffs: 3-8. No more calling him a "superstar" please.
    I knew there was a reason I followed Bill Simmons.

    He was Tweeting. You only have 140 characters.

    still waiting for simmons to run down the list of players he's had beside him. oh wait, that might explain the above.

    when VC went to orlando, simmons let it be heard far & wide that he thought it was a great move because vince had NEVER played with anyone 'decent.' i guess he forgot about kidd & jefferson, two guys with infinitely more skill (at the time they were vince's teammates) than bosh has ever had.

    whatever.

    Maybe... but there's plenty of Miami Heat fans out there just lining up to listen to his b.s.

    Here's what else Simmons's tweeted.

    First
    Superstars guarantee you 45+ wins regardless of their supporting cast. Only 5 superstars right now: LBJ, Kobe, Wade, Durant, Howard.
    then
    PS: I agree Bosh could thrive on a good team (like Gasol did in LA). But we throw "superstar" around too liberally. LBJ/Wade = superstars.
    He has a good point.

    On a positive flipside, no more Hadi to deal with.

    I'm a HUGE Bill Simmons fan... great writer... great podcast... but his statement about: "Superstars guarantee you 45+ wins regardless of their supporting cast. Only 5 superstars right now: LBJ, Kobe, Wade, Durant, Howard." is simply not true.

    Quick check of D-Wade's time in Miami after the Championship with Shaq:

    2006-2007 - 44 wins
    2007-2008 - 15 wins
    2008-2009 - 43 wins
    2009-2010 - 47 wins

    Just sayin'....

    Your support and love kept me going until the all star break when I checked out mentally and until the last few games of the season in the midst of a heated playoff race when I checked out physically.

    Imagine if we hadn't loved and supported him, would he have made it through Christmas?

    Thank you Chris Bosh, your 140 character loving embrace perfectly sums up the inadequacy and disappointment of the last 7 years.

    You are Toronto's second least favorite franchise player in our 15 year history, maybe someday they will put it on a trophy and it can be the lone bright spot in what will be an otherwise empty trophy room.
