    I have had it with all this Chris Bosh Talk, this has been on my mind for about a week. I read this quote from Bill Simmons of ESPN, and it sums up just what I've been thinking. Tell me if we are wrong and why.

    If one more person refers to Bosh as a "superstar," I'm going to scream. His résumé: seven seasons, 11 career playoff games, one second-team All-NBA selection, never played in a big game in his life other than the gold-medal game of the 2008 Olympics. Now he's fleeing frigid Toronto for South Beach, no state income tax, Dwyane Wade, max money and the playoffs … and this makes him a "superstar"? Did we really drop our standards that low?

    Star? Yes. Superstar? No. He's the Pau Gasol of the East. He can't lead his team to anything in the playoffs, but would make one of the best sidekicks in the entire NBA. I still think Bosh is easily a top 15 player in the League, but just not quite in that top, upper tier.

    I wouldn't even refer to him as a star. Seriously the guy is a joke. If Toronto didn't have such a horrible team then he wouldn't have had the roll he had.

    Well i think he is better than Lamarcus! And I'm still happy we didn't get Hedo! That is exactly what overrated means.

    Bosh is the one who's going to get his ego hurt the most. He's clearly the third amigo & wasn't he the one who said he wanted to be the centerpiece and not an addition?

     He's the Pau Gasol of the East. 

    Is he ever! He'll do just enough on that Heat squad to get noticed, yet not be the main focus. Out of the big three in South Beach there's only one legit champion and thats DWade, and honestly has the most to lose from this situation.

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
