If there is anyone who scares me when it comes to dealing Bosh, it’s Pat Riley. I know Colangelo wont give away Bosh, but Riley squeezed blood out of a stone on that Jermaine O’Neal deal, no telling what he could do on a Bosh one.
I’m not really feeling this moral victory. Denver, fine, I can buy that, after getting killed by OKC and the Jazz that was a good fight against a strong team, but we should’ve won this game.
