    I hope that's the case.

      Personally I'd be ashamed if Bosh was booed if he left, then returned while playing for someone else. He's given solid years to the franchise and has put up - with a high level of class - with numerous rebuilds and seasons of failed potential. Options and a potentially more successful future are the very reason a player looks forward to free agency. Vince was annoying long before he left and had - and has - no class and no fighting spirit.

      I recall the playoff series with the Nets a few years back. Close game (forget which one) late in the fourth. Bosh at the free throw line. Carter, just before Bosh lets go of the shot, all of a sudden jerks up and makes a show of looking towards the Jersey bench, as if someone was calling out to him. To me it looked like Carter couldn't deal with the situation and shamefully tried to distract Bosh while shooting a crucial free throw.

      Bosh would never stoop to that. If he left, I'd hope fans appreciated his time here and gave him the warm welcome he deserves. He wants to play for a winner, and if he feels he can't do that in T.O. (personally I hope he stays, as with this core and some minor tweaks I really think the Raps can be awesome in a year or two), then it's within his rights to do so.

        I think it's a near certainty that Bosh gets booed.

        Bosh won't deserve that reaction but I think it'll be the one he gets.

          i honestly don't think he will because i think it's time to move on for both sides. with vince it wasn't time.

          he really had no reason to leave other than out of complete randomness.

            The shoe has yet to drop. If the parting goes off amicably sotospeak where there is a S&T exchange of moderate value coming back I think all will be well. He has been a good member of the franchise while here.

              That’s actually a good point. I’ve considered that aspect of it over these last couple of weeks, but I didn’t think of it today while I was writing the post. But you’re right. How we all feel, in the end, will likely be affected by how it all goes down. If he just walks and we get nothing ... I’ll probably have to write another post on the matter. (Lol.)

                I’ve been thinking about and it’s hard for me to imagine that if Bosh does go, he’ll just walk. It just doesn’t feel likely because, if he walks, he doesn’t get the super-max money. And I think he certainly wants that, whatever he’s going to do. It’d be crazy to leave it on the table ... and no matter how badly he wants to win, if he’s thinking about going elsewhere to do it, he’ll have to agree to the sign-and-trade to get the money. Which means we’d get some return on him ... and we’re back to where we were.

                  too many people perceive that he has "checked out" for him to be perceived as leaving having given it his all. that equals boos.

                    If Bosh just walks out - he will get booed and he'll deserve it. Bosh has had every opportunity to let BC know in advance and permit him the chance to get something in return.

                    On a S&T deal with the Raps getting something of value back, it will be much harder to boo CB4. We don't "own" him.

                    Players come and players go. But its how they go that will get them booed.

                      He would really have to go out of his way to appease the fan base to avoid being booed. Were talking major ads in the newspaper, charity game in Toronto every year, nothing but great things to say about the city, go to a team with actual shot of winning a title combined with a good haul in S and T.

                      If I was in the camp that wanted to resign him and he left I would be devastated 100%. If Bron leaves the Cleveland, he will be booed no matter what happens. Fans take it as a slap to the face and a personal attack against their city.
