    Highly, highly doubtful that it's true. If the Raptors were that weary of Bosh's body, they would have traded him when they had the chance, either last summer or before the trade deadline. Why take such a huge risk on a player like that when you can get something back for him now? Especially since they will not only risk losing him to injury, but to another team. The smart thing to do would have been to simply trade him.

    Besides, isn't the RealGM forum one of the worst places for making stuff like this up?

      I don't know whether you follow politics or not but tons of stuff is redacted and just wiped clean on the internet all the time. Sometimes people get lucky and are able to save it in cache. I am sure that it happens in other areas all the time.

      Stuff gets out there on websites that people don't want out there and then it gets redacted or just wiped clean.

        Just being a Bosh lover is all.

            Here is more about it

            Also someone wrote that Bosh changed his location on his Twitter account from Toronto to Everywhere. I don't use Twitter but for those that do this comment can be easily verified.

              Take it for what its worth, but I just read this via the RealGM where the OP claims to have a legit inside source. I know we've heard of these inside sources before, but if it is true it is certainly interesting.

              Timely find, Doc! I'm glad you posted this because I was worried we'd have nothing new to talk about this week.

              I'll naively believe this rumour, but it doesn't change my pre-existing opinion of Bosh.

              IMO, Bosh is a super-talented athlete who could make several existing playoff teams much better and eventually into title contenders.

              I also think that Bosh's work ethic and personality will enable him to overcome his rumoured "medical MESS" until he at least turns 30, which won't be until the 5th year of his next contract.

              I don't think the Raps are the right team for him at this stage of his career, and I also don't think it's worth it for the Raps to give him max deal given the personnel on their current roster. However, I do believe that Bosh is worth max money in the present NBA free agent market.

                According to the original poster that shared the news, he himself asked the mods to remove the post for fear that it would "out" his source. So, maybe its just me but his "source" doesn't seem that obvious.

                  Ripp is right...

                  BTW, this sorta doesn't make sense. If you have knee problems, the right thing to do is to lose weight, not gain it. Additional weight makes things worse, not better..
                  Adding all the upper body muscle isnt gonna help the knees?? So Im not sure if this makes any sense, he would need to strengthen the muscles around his knees, but we all saw him doing squats and running sprints in his video, not really knee saving movements?

                  Either way, a less mobile CB4 is relatively useless, he doesnt have the savvy of JO or Mcdyess to work-around any potential knee problems, his strength was his quickness and it thats gone, so is his game.

                      Regarding and earlier post, he changed his location from Toronto to everywhere, and his website is also "under maintenance"

                        Well if Raptors fans weren't paranoid enough by now, they'll likely read into this and jump to more conclusions regarding Bosh.

                        Oh well, its a nice way to kill time during a normally slow and boring off-season.

                          Wow, is CB4 the next T-MAC?
                          Bosh has gotten a bit better every year since his rookie season, but I personally don't think he has much more improvement left in him, and I think if we've seen the best Chris Bosh..that there's no reason to invest the next 5 -6 years of the franchise in him.

                            this is probably just a whole bunch of BS. So does this mean that other players with thin frames such as durant will encounter the same problems...I'm just not buying this

                              Not to add fuel to the fire, but it reminds me a little of Shareef Abdur-Rahim. He had a similar body as Bosh, and the injury bug hit him after his eighth year. Three years later he was done due to knee problems. The strange thing was that Shareef missed very few games during his first 8 seasons (only 1 season did he miss more than 2 games). But all that eventually caught up with him.

                              I am suspicious of the original post, though, and him asking for it to be deleted does nothing to change that. He knew it would just add fuel to the fire. The best way to spread a rumour is to start it and then try to cover it up.

                                I love CB, he is my favorite player in the league, but that post scared the hell out of me. As did the rapid deletion and following coverup by the RealGM Raptors staff.
