    Yeah that line "F*ck you, pay me" is right out of Goodfellas...rappers love to emulate anything from a ganster movie.

    I had no idea that was about Amare, but what he tweeted was in essence exactly the same as what Bosh did, so I think the Simmons' reaction should still apply to CB.

    It would be hypocritical of him for it not to....

    Well, not sure who’s whining and sniveling ... ‘cause I for one, just thought the tweet was foolish and maybe a bit disrespectful in its way, but ... that’s me.

    And don’t know about the rapper - I’ll take your word for it - but that line, for me, is right out of Goodfellas. And if that really was his attitude, it’d be less than clever and I’d be less than impressed.

    Ah, so the point is he also doesn't care if you think he is a dick or not..otherwise he wouldn't do what he is doing. It is quite possible he even enjoys the whining, sniveling, and hurt feelings.

    In any case, money and your career is more valuable than feelings....as a wise man (rapper) once said, "F*ck you, pay me."

    Even if Simmons was referring directly to Amar’e Stoudemire - which I guess he probably was - we all know it also fits Bosh like a glove ... which Simmons would very likely have known (I’d be surprised if he hadn’t seen that Bosh also tweeted that exact thing not long ago - he seems a bit more ‘Raptor-aware’ than a lot of American sports writers, that I’ve seen ... and he’s always on top of the ‘social-media’ stuff of today) ... and Bosh would DEFinitely recognize his own self in there - I mean, how could he not? ... and that’s good enough for me.

    Yeah, this was about Amare, not Bosh. Bill Simmons tweeted Bosh and told him to go to Houston. Would be a bit hypocritical for him to call Bosh a dick for asking if he should leave, and then telling him to do so

    "Dude, you are a tool for asking if you should stay or go. But since you asked, I think you should go to..."

    See, Raptors fans aren't the only ones annoyed at his behaviour of late. If he keeps this up, he'll leave a more sour taste than T-Mac.

    Nah, it was topical last night.

    It was about Amar'e
    , who tweeted the following:

    "I think about Free Agency Everyday. Should I Stay in Phoenix or should I leave? This the question of the Summer. What do you guys think?"
    LOL, thanks for the clarification. You just dissapointed a few people.

    Maybe the critics can get off the CB jockstrap for a minute or two.

    I had a nice laugh at that one, he's a few weeks behind though.

    it's not so much that he watched the games, it's that he did it just to try to grab attention.
    FYI he refused to do an interview for ABC at the game. Ever heard of people called "basketball fans"? I think Chris Bosh is one, he likes to watch basketball. That's why he went to the game.

    And as for "asking your Twitter followers whether you should stay with your NBA team or sign elsewhere", it's called a RHETORICAL QUESTION. It does not denote a serious inquiry. Contrary to popular belief, Chris Bosh is not actually taking a poll to determine where he should play next year... geez.

    This whole situation is very disturbing to me. I could write a novel on how wrong everyone is about Chris Bosh.

    Sorry, I'm in a bad mood. I'll stop now.
