Yes - It is a great idea
Yes - However, it would be a stupid thing to do
No - However, They will retire #4 anyway
No - No way that the Raptors will retire #4
Haven't thought about it, will decide later
Haven't thought about it and don't plan to in the future
Who gives a sheet?
I say retire it.
But put a C after the S. BOSCH.
Like the washing machine.
you dont reward mediocrity and losing. plain and simple. bosh led the team into developing a competitive culture that was just not good enough time after time, regardless of the different kinds of players he was surrounded with. he's our poster boy for being just on the cusp, but failing enough to be right below the mediocrity line.
he left town in a fitting manner. he pussed out during a playoff run. totally his character. no need to shower him with more undeserved praise.
i'd vote for retiring Dance Pack dancers sports bras before i'd ever support the idea of giving bosh anything more than a video montage.
#4 will never be retired. MLSE does not retire jersey numbers but they will raise his jersey to the rafters along with VC. Both have been very very good players in their own right with the majority of there time spent here but neither will be a hall of famer and that should be the only way numbers should get retired.
I agree. I still think Vince was the best thing that ever happened to the Raptors, regardless of the way he left, though.
What'd Bosh do to deserve his jersey retired? I believe this thread was just started for controversy.. So, no point in anyone getting heated over it.

If Bosh wants his Jersey retired then let Miami do it. In the 7 years he was here he has lead Toronto to exactly 0 playoff series wins and an Atlantic division title in the weakest division in recent history. Then he admitted he couldn't do it and left the team. How does that warrant him getting his number retired. At least Garnett took his team to the conference finals in a heated west and people were scared to play that Minnesota team. When was the last time anyone was scared to play Bosh and The Raptors.
I would rather Toronto have no numbers retired than have numbers like his retired for the sake of it.
No championships + Not a lifetime Raptor = No retired Jersey
Nah not rly, Vince Carter deserves to have his number retired before bosh does, and im still uncomfortable with VC at the moment, though i do think one day for him. probably not for Bosh
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_LaimbeerAltogether, Laimbeer spent 14 seasons in the NBA, 12 of them with Detroit. Laimbeer became the 19th player in league history to amass more than 10,000 points and 10,000 rebounds. Laimbeer was most effective off the defensive glass: from 1982 to 1990 no player in the league totaled more defensive rebounds. His streak of 685 consecutive games played (which ended due to suspension) is the fifth longest in league history. Laimbeer retired early in the 1993-94 season at age 36, and his jersey number (40) was eventually retired by the Pistons. He remains the franchise's all-time leader in career rebounds.
