  • Bosh Requested a All-Star Wing to Stay

    This was recently reported in Bleacher Report:



    Is it true that Bosh requested this to stay?

    You need to post the source of your quote. Please provide the URL.

    Those two items seem like fairly obvious choices. He wants them to basically use the full MLE, be willing to take on big contracts if need be and work a deal for a star SG. Not an easy task... Sounds like something that may require Bargnani's involvement to work. Just a thought... I'm sure Bosh would like to see a guy like Amir Johnson re-signed.

    Oh, here's a question. What wings do you think he has in mind? JJ?

      Mayo would be a player they could afford with their assets and come out of it looking better. The Grizz tried to move him for Ellis. Ellis would be a good option too but both these guys are undersized... Maybe they could land Rudy Gay via a S&T?

        This is nothing new Apollo. Doug Smith reported this a couple weeks back regarding Bosh's request for an all-star SG who can create on offense. I don't have the link right now, but I'll check back through Doug's archives and see if I can find it.

          It sounded familiar but I thought I dreamed it or something. Damn my self doubt! And damn my boring dreams!

            Rudy Gay via S&T is interesting. He probably wants the max and isn't worth it at all, but if you keep Bosh and send Jose and number 13 pick for him, that's better than Memphis just letting him walk right?

              This is old news and in my opinion like I have written about before it shows that Bosh has his priorities wrong on how to win in the NBA.

              The Raptors don't need to add an all-star. There are no current players in the NBA who are considered all-stars that don't score. Even Howard scores though his main value is in his defense, including rebounding.

              The Raptors score plenty. They don't need more scorers unless Bosh wants to get Max money for doing less

              Bosh should commit to playing better defense and lead by example. He should be asking the Raptors to bring in players that will upgrade the team defense, not some guy who can score and probably play mediocre defense. The all-stars that score and play defense are far and few in between and most of them are either Max Contract players or close to it.

              Like I said why would Bosh want someone else who can score? Maybe so he can remove the pressure of being a team leader. Max contract for the too oft injured Bosh, what a joke.

                Gay has a qualifying offer of $4.4M. I think you should expect something like Aldridge's deal. That's $65M over five years.

                NBA trends would suggest otherwise. Typically champions have a dominate big man and a dominate guard.

                      Since this is old news, why are people making such a huge deal about Bosh staying or going? If the options have been presented to Colangelo, then its Colangelo's move, not Bosh's decision.

                        sorry buddha, but at this day and age, to at least make the playoffs, you need at least 2 all-stars, and to make the finals, you need at least 3 or even 4. Such as the case with the lakers (kobe, pau, artest, odom) orlando (howard, jameer, VC, lewis) cavs (shaq, jamison, williams, LBJ) celtics (KG, pierce, rondo, allen, wallace, finley) suns (hill, nash, amare, richardson) and even the recently eliminated spurs (duncan, jefferson, parker, mcdyess). I actually admire Bosh for asking for an all-star caliber player to play alongside him, it just shows he is at the stage in his career where he is dead serious on winning, unlike 2-3 years ago, he didnt mind much losing, as long as he can put up numbers.

                        the sad thing is i dont think Turk, Bosh and Jose play well together, so if Bosh leaves, then we will be able to see what Turk is capable of, but if Bosh stays, then it will probably be the same result as this season coz Turk aint going anywhere with the fat contract.

                          I think things are watered down when compared to the past. I would say at least two stars, not all-stars.

                            Richard Hamilton or Tayshawn Prince or both would be a huge upgrade for the Raptors. To get both we're probably looking at Bargnani and/or DeRozan, expiring contracts and/or 1st rounders. However, a lineup of a solid center signed with the MLE, Bosh, Prince, Hamilton and Jack would look very good.

                              It is precisely so. In fact, a team full of good players and scrubs cannot hope to do better than Charlotte did this year. To win in the NBA, you need 3 or 4 stars and the other guys can be one of the roughly 300 scrubs this league has in it now. The trouble with the Raps is, you've got one star, 3 or 4 average players, and a whole bunch of offensive-oriented scrubs. Granted, the club needs more defensive players and long-range shooters. But at least one ball-handling star is a must.
