    How Miami got made sucks for Cleveland and Toronto. If a super big 3 came to us, there would be no hate.

    Regardless how Bosh decided to leave since he was a coveted free agent, it was his own decision. He did not do anything wrong. Colangelo should not have bet on his word sorta like the mess what's happening with Orlando and Howard.

    In Orlando, The ex-GM Otis Smith drafted up a contract that he asked Howard to sign if his are intentions was to stay with the team for one year longer (player option) or leave. If Howard did not sign, he would have been traded.

    Colangelo didnt think of this creative idea. He went out on a limb thinking it's all or nothing.

    I do not think Bosh is to blame 100%. Colangelo is just as much to blame if not more.
    Bosh did have a player option (as did Wade and Lebron). They all agreed to opt out of their final year. Colangelo was just the idiot who decided not to trade Bosh.

    Default Haters Republic

    Do I want Bosh to win the championship? Well I guess we should change the name of this site to "HatersRepublic" because I don't want him to, I dont know why, I just want to see the heat lose this year, trade bosh next year, and win then, so Bosh can never win a championship. Is that mean?

    If Howard didnt sign that non-trade contract with Orlando, he would have been traded to the Lakers before the deadline.

    My point is Colangelo should have gotten some contractual reassurance from Bosh. The past is the past and we start from scratch.

    I hope Bosh does win the championship.

    Are no-trade clauses even permitted in the NBA? I don't think they are.

    In your heart, perhaps, but certainly not all of our hearts. For the record, I don't like the booing that is done for the likes of Carter, McGrady, Bosh and Turkoglu, I think it's all pretty childish. However, I would be quite happy to see Bosh never win a championship, as some sort of karmic payback. Plus, as others have said, I'd much rather see a team of young homegrown players win a championship, as opposed to the divas of south beach.

    There are no-trade clauses in the NBA. Kobe Bryant has one for example. I was under the impression that a player could wave it if they chose, and Dwight Howard would have waived his if Orlando presented him with a trade he liked. That was the case for Kobe in 2007 when he was almost dealt.

    It just gives more power to the player when they demand for a trade.

    i actually love it, and wish people would do it for even more players... boo kobe, KD, blake griffin, melo... boo every player who enters the air canada centre not wearing a raptors jersey...

    make them hate the idea of coming to toronto.

    i, for one, don't want our home court to be a welcoming environment for the enemy.

    Nope ... If he was on a team with Steve Nash, or some main players other than LeBron and DWade, I wouldn't have any problem seeing Bosh win it ... but I think this HEAT team has brought so much 'Heat' onto themselves that I don't want to see any of them wearing a ring ... except the ones Wade & Haslem already have.

    Tough few years for the CB4/CB1 ego ... amazing how many columns and articles I read bashing him, questioniong his sexual orientation, calling out his level of intensity or even professionalism ... You want the spotlight? There you go.
    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.

    Absolutely...if three all stars had illegally colluded with our coach or GM so they could sell off all their assets and make it possible to give three players max salary at least two to three years in advance. And at the same time destroy two franchises and set a horrible precedent, basically saying that there should be five or six great teams in the league and the rest should be glorified D league teams...

    Hell yeah I would hate the Raptors. Any REAL fan of basketball should and would.

    If Jordan, Bird, Magic, Phil Jackson, Chuck, Reggie and a host of the other most influential basketball players and coaches say it was bad for the game, it was bad for the game.

    i hate bosh for being secretive about the way he left. I dont think you can blame BC for not trading Bosh, most GMs with a 'superstar' wouldn't trade him if theres a chance to keep them. I don't agree with that but I'm not the GM

    BC did trade Bosh in the offseason, to be clear. If your problem is that they did not trade him during the year, I think I agree with you that you cant blame BC, but in the offseason, we gotta get a little more then what we got. That trade should have set us up for the immediate future like the Melo trade did to Denver. That is what I blame BC for. He put himself in a postion where Bosh opts out of his player option, and Miami has all the leverage in the trade.

    alot of things about the heat winning bother me

    - the way the team was put together is BS
    - eddy curry would have a ring.... EDDY "I LOVE DONUTS" CURRY... f' that
    - as much as everyone else, i enjoy when chris bosh cries, but i dont want his tears to stain the trophy
    - i just watched "more than a game" last night.. and it made me hate lebron even more
    - every year they don't win, they get one step closer to proving dan gilbert right... and who doesn't want that crazy fucker to be right?
    - OKC winning would prove that loyalty and team building are more important than random gatherings of "talent"
    - lebron's hairline
    - i dont particularly like teams who send out their random unknown bench players to head hunt players on the other team that hurt their diva superstar's feelings... i cant even remember that twat's name, he's THAT irrelevant... his only reason for existing is throwing elbows
    - lebron's hairline
    Since Bron's hairline was clearly a sorepoint (you mentioned it twice) I couldn't resist...

    I don't want Miami to win. For me it has less to do with Bosh specifically, and more to do with the whole super-friends collusion. It just isn't good for the game and just the thought of Bosh and LBJ celebrating a championship makes me sick.
    Same here. first of all, if one really believed that those three made their decision hours away from announcing theyre playing in miami, then youre as gullible as those old people who reply to those "im a millionaire, i need help with my money" emails.
    secondly, if they do win, i dont think they deserve the title coz they practically bought the title. they got rid of everybody on the roster to clear cap space to sign those three and basically got scrubs to complete the team. aint no strategy there.

    eventhough they did a complete 360 from their attitude last year, still doesnt get my vote.

    i actually want it to go to game 7, then thunder wins via 30pt margin, just so lebron would feel how bad it hurt again to come that close to a championship and not be able to win it.

    Yeah and they all said it was never planned.

    True. But i think Bosh whispered sweet nothings in his ear too. If Bosh came out and said, I will not be back, this franchise loved me for 7 years so i think i owe it to you guys to let you know so you can do whatever....then all is good. It wouldnt have made a difference. If BC traded him, he still wouldve played with another team, let his contract expire then sign with the Heat.

    But as one poster said, he held the team hostage, trying to see first if Miami will be able to sign all the three of them and when it was confirmed, then he bailed. Ive always doubted that he wouldve moved to Miami if it was only wade and him.

    Technically we James Johnson in return, and also got back our own conditional 1st round pick. Yay us.

    I'm not cheering for Bosh. I'm not mad that he left Toronto but I lost a lot of respect due to how he left Toronto. Kevin Durant has a true heart of a Champion and he in my opinion represents what basketball should be about. I am cheering for KD and that means I am cheering against Bosh.
