If one were to exercise any degree of logic, which has gone completely lost in the days and weeks leading up to this momentous period, it’s virtually impossible for any team to get anyone signed on the bottom line with so many moving parts and pieces.
The basketball world was abuzz on the weekend following a report published in the New York Times citing an unnamed club executive who felt Bosh and James were heading to the Bulls.
“A done deal,’’ was how this anonymous executive put it, which is completely foolish.
In time, maybe Bosh and James will join forces on a Bulls team that has the potential to emerge as the power team in the NBA, but anything is possible.
Bosh, if he decides not to accept a max contract with the help of the Rap, can sign with a team such as Oklahoma City that has cap space.
But again, does he turn his back on $30 million by completely eliminating Toronto?
It’s not likely, but it is possible.
As for that Times report, which pretty well sums up these crazy times, Bosh’s agent, Henry Thomas, who also represents Dwyane Wade, refuted it.
“Completely untrue,” Thomas told NBA.com via e-mail. “(Bosh) hasn’t decided anything.”
Of course Bosh hasn’t decided anything, except that it’s time to leave Toronto.
