    Those who are familiar with my (increasingly infrequent) posts know that I rarely, if ever, make personal attacks (except maybe during the Khandor days...ah nostalgia makes things look better).

    That said, this thread is stupid, you guys are a bunch of cry-babies, and you all need to grow up. The Bosh boo-birds will be the stupidest of all. Will I boo Hedo? Damn straight - that man gave us zero, and we (almost) gave him 53 million. Will I boo Bosh? Why in the hell would I? Because he lost focus in at the tail end of the season, where EVERYONE talked about free agency? And that isn't an excuse - it's just that 1 month of mediocrity is not enough to wipe out everything he gave to the Raptors -- even IF couldn't handle a deep playoff run on his own. Can you really blame Bosh for leaving Toronto?

    Look, I am not saying that Bosh wasn't part of why the team failed to advance past the first round. It has become a trite saying that Bosh is not a central all-star who can carry a team with only role players (hell, even Duncan couldn't do that). But he gave us 7 SOLID YEARS. So what, the Raps missed the playoffs. Big deal - they were going to get knocked out by Cleveland anyway, in 4 games.

    -----

    But no, poor Toronto, they got jilted by Bosh. Did we? Didn't Bosh give us 7 years of blood, sweat and HGH? Jeez. Look at all of Bosh's quotes post-Toronto. Has he said even ONE thing where you couldn't interpret it in a way that was more on the side of truth and less on the side of slamming Toronto? He likes media attention...oooh, terrible professional star athlete! I bet he would have had MORE THAN ENOUGH ATTENTION if the Raptors ever put together a team capable of deep playoff run.

    Raps fans, no matter what, will ALWAYS boo a former player provided he a) left in free agency, or b) asked to be traded - regardless whether he is a Hedo or a Bosh. The only guys we cheer are the ones we traded in a pursuit to get better, because we feel like that player never broke up with us.

    Default "classy Bosh"

    Check out the nba.com replay of the Miami heat Philadelphia game. in the first 5 seconds it shows Chris Bosh flipping someone off. Why did we endear this jerk? I'm glad he's gone!

    The only way to bag a classy lady is to give her two tickets to the gun show... and see if she likes the goods.

    Bosh is acting more and more like a fool everyday. Makes me think we should start a petition/facebook movement to just ignore Bosh when he comes to town, no booing, no reaction at all… just the sound of crickets when he’s announced and touches the ball.

    For the heck of it… let’s cheer Vince when he comes to town this year… at the very least he never bad-mouthed Toronto and did WAY more for the community here than Chris ever did.

    I used to be a big Bosh fan but the man’s true colours are showing and it’s not pretty.

    Sleepz,


    You want to talk about teammates? Look at Miami last year. Are you telling me that Wade had better team around him than Bosh did? Are you telling me that they had a better coach than Toronto did? I agree that team results and team success speaks louder than individual stats. i mean look at Zack Randolph over the years/. Great Stats poor team play..... Bosh is a punk. Take it to the bank.

    Be thankful that Bosh is gone because we would have had to put up with another 5 years of mediocrity. Maybe now (even though will will be horrible the next 2 years) we have a better chance to build a contender around someone else (not Bargani)

    KG is a pretty big dude. He's like 7'1" and 260. Bosh is like 6'10", 240.
    Official info from NBA.com:

    Kevin Garnett
    Height: 6-11
    Weight: 253 lbs.

    Chris Bosh
    Height: 6-11
    Weight: 235 lbs.

    KG is more or less the same size as Bargnani and that is no doubt bigger than Bosh.

    Apollo, you know as well as anyone that those stats can't be trusted. Garnett is apparently over 7 feet and I'm pretty sure Bosh is just 6'10. I read numerous articles about the fact that Garnett didn't want to be listed at his real height and why. It really made no sense to me, but there you have it.

    Garnet is at least 7 feet. I know he's mentioned on numerous occasions that he doesn't like to be listed as 7 feet and would rather be listed as 6 feet, 12 inches/13 inches. I don't know the reason behind it.

    EDIT: What Tim W said.

    Just look at him! Garnett is huge. Like Tim Duncan. Apparently he got shorter over time. He was listed at 7'1 in before 07. Now he's listed at 6'11 or 7'0.
