When did Bosh quit? I do agree with you that Bc deserves fault for not making moves to protect future of the franchise but I'm not sure he quit on the team a long time ago.
I see players on this team currently that quit or don't give it their all on a nightly basis. Can't say the same for Bosh when he was in a Raps uniform.

agreed, although i'm sure there will be more boos than anything.
I'm just tired of Toronto acting like "The Jilted Girlfriend" with all of these players (Turk, Vince, Tracy, Bosh). For Wednesday, I wish everyone there would put their energy into cheering extra hard for dudes like Ed Davis, DeMar Derozan and Amir Johnson and save their boos for The GM and Triano for assembling this car crash of a team.
(I would also prefer to remember the All Star Chris Bosh that was the best player for this organization, who I enjoyed watching and NOT the guy who craves a headline and the puss he's become over the past year)
Is there another fan base that constantly boos their ex players like we do in Toronto? It's kind of embarrassing, like we don't know much about ball but we know enough to boo. It is exactly what Bosh expects and I can just see him smiling at LEbRON and comparing the booing in Cleveland with what he gets here. I'd prefer silent indifference. Ultimately a win would be better than booing but at least keeping him a little afraid to drive inside would be nice.
If he promised a charity money and left without paying up, he should have fruit thrown at him. If it's just for his Toronto years and leaving like he did, meh, we're not much worse without him.
"Victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road may be; for without victory, there is no survival."
if the fans dont boo thats messed up. he said many times that he wanted to be "the man", the fact that he left to join another star makes him a custy. the fact that he gave up on the team is justification for boos. and now tht i find out he hasnt paid up to the boys and girls club, he deserves boos for sure.
what a fag, should get the vince treatment
play in toronto with jose, andrea, and turk as the core of the team for the next 5 years...
yea bosh is really a douche for not picking toronto...
Don't understand all the hate on for Bosh. After VC left, Bosh was the only reason The Raptors remained somewhat relevant around the league. How many times was he and he alone who kept the Raptors in a ton of games while those around him did nothing. He also did a lot of off court stuff for the community and represented the Raptors with class. Whether or not her quit after last year's All Star break is hard to say. You could argue both ways but it's hard to prove. At the end of the day, if you look at Bosh's body of work in T.Dot over his 7 years, the good far outweighs the so called bad. Yes, the manner in which he left was childish. But you know what, his a 26 year old kid caught up in the Hollywood hype. A lot of people would have had their heads inflated had they got the almost cult like status he got here in T.Dot. I anticipate most of the fans will boo Bosh on Wednesday. Yet, if you really wanted to send a message around the league, to players and fans alike, why not give him an appreciative round of applause when his name is introduced. After that, if you want to boo him because he's a member of the Heat and you want the Raps to win, by all means go ahead and do that. But giving him an appreciative round of applause during introductions would send a message that Raptor fans aren't bitter and jilted fans but rather mature fans who understand that players come and go. T.Dot fans are known to cheer for guys who bust their butts when playing. Bosh did that for most of his time here. Why not cheer that and show the league that we have classy fans here.
I'd clap when he comes on. He gave us a chance to actually be good in the future, by leaving. If he had stayed, signed a max contract. We'd be way over the cap, with a couple guys on long-term. And we'd still just be a 40-44 win team. For now we might have a worse record, but thanks to him leaving we have a chance to become a lot better. So, thank you Chris Bosh, although you could have told the management to trade you or something, but still!

Is it going to hurt Bosh's feelings? No.
Is it going to make him (and his teammates) play harder, which will most likely result in a win for Miami? Yes.
Is it going to make Bosh regret leaving Toronto? No.
Is it going to make Toronto fans seem petty? Yes.
Is silence going to have the effect that Raptor fans want the booing to have? Yes.
So tell me again why you'd want to help Miami win, make Bosh more glad he left and make Toronto seem petty?
And where exactly did you find out that he hasn't paid the Boys and Girls club? From an unsubstantiated rumour on the internet? Are you new to the world wide web?
