    YES! So we can set up a cage match between Bosh and Triano. Hair pulling and kicks to the groin allowed.

    (I would like it to go the distance)

    Actually, this is not a repeat thread.

    I think people are focusing on one part of my inquiry, im not asking if youd welcome Bosh back, im asking if youd welcome Bosh based on the departure of Bargnani and Calderon.

    Try to analyze and not judge right away.
    My apologies ... No, I don't want Bosh back in general ... He's a 3rd fiddle making huge money ... crumbles in crunchtime
    My analysis - I wouldn't get rid of our best scorer, and best distributor to bring him back.

    Of course you do it, and then you flip him to a team in the west for youth and picks. You'd have to be on crack not to make that deal.

    No, when was this? Oh, boy would I have done this. I would have even included a can of spam.

    I would do it right now, but only if Bosh is the second option.

    Nope ... Raptors offered Bosh for the #1 pick that year, Clippers declined.

    Nope, they offered the #1 and Davis for Bosh. They didn't want to eat Davis' massive contract.

    I think Toronto should trade Bargnani, just not for Bosh! I think Calderon could stick around if he would be willing to become Toronto's Mr. Jet Terry: a veteran guard off the bench who can keep the 2nd unit under control.

    Toronto should draft a PG and trade Bargnani and Bayless for a true Center with an emphasis on D.

    Trade Bargnani and Calderon for Bosh, then trade Bosh to Minnesota for their 2018 second round pick.

    How about a three-team deal, with Bargnani and Calderon facilitating Bosh's trade out of Miami? I'd go for that. That would be hilarious, actually. Shoring up defensive liabilities, getting rid of two sub-par (not overly bad) contracts AND getting Bosh out of Miami to play in some NBA backwoods would be too sweet.

    Especially if it were Cleveland since Bosh wouldn't 'entertain' going there.

    I have no problem with bosh, but I feel like PF is our strongest position with Amir and Davis, I don't think either can or should have to move to Center to accommodate bosh. However, i would have no problem w/ a subsequent trade of bosh to elsewhere for young talent/picks,

    Maybe, Bosh to Denver for Felton, Anderson, and a first round pick?

    Did anyone notice how different Bosh handled himself in the playoffs/finals compared to Wade/James. While the latter two were acting like childish goofs, Bosh resembled the mature, intelligent, kid/man he was prior to the 08 Olympic Games. From the time he came back from the 08 Games, he changed. He was a lot more arrogant and full of himself. I gotta believe that Wade/James had a very negative influence on him. This year in Miami may have humbled him. You could almost see as the season went on, that he was distancing himself from Wade and James. Those two don't even seem to respect him as a player. Often times, he was wide open and neither James nor Wade feed him the ball.
