It's weird how many of you are attacking Bosh personally because you're unhappy he's leaving for another team?

Calling him a giraffe and other silly **** is downright childish.. he didn't exactly give up on our franchise while he was here.. if you were offered a job elsewhere with better circumstances would it not be awkward if your co-workers started booing you and calling you names because you chose to work elsewhere? Sports landscape..

I think they are doing this because they want Bosh to hurry up and sign. If he keeps listening to other offers he may reconsider. This could leave Miami without him, Stoudamire, or Boozer.

I don't like this trend to full media, global-icon, branding stuff from basketball players. Just play ball

As I stated, I don't blame him leaving I would to. But their is a classy way of leaving.

Well Bosh has made it clear here that he wants to win but maybe 'Miami' doesn't think he is fully worth the max and are looking to see (head games) if he signs for less to have a good shot at winning?? You have to wonder though Wade is a proven winner and will get the max, maybe the JJ & RG signings are putting some perspective here. I remember Shaq saying I do not know how we won that championship with all the partying this team did....are they questioning could he check his ego at the door? Again if this is a legit source!

Smells like BS.

If you are going to say that about Bosh, the same thing must be applied about Lebron. For God's sake, I've heard as much about Lebron's desire to become a billionaire and icon as winning in general. Plus, he is the one who tried to orchestrate a "free-agency tour" and would have done it had he not gotten backlash.

I guess the only reason Miami would really let this info come out would be that they feel he is leaning towards NY or Chicago. This way it doesn't look like they lose out on Bosh if they decide to go in a different direction. Either that, it was a concern that Miami had that wasn't supposed to be leaked but Bucher had an inside source.

Haha from the team that helped name a county after Wade so they can keep him.

This is such an obvious tactic trying to decrease interest from other teams on Bosh and possibly lowball him.

bstein's been known to troll around here before fellas. I wouldn't mind a little confirmation first.
9. Similarly, IF THOU HAST SPENT the entire offseason predicting that thy team will stink, thou shalt not gloat, nor even be happy, shouldst thou turn out to be correct. Realistic analysis is fine, but be a fan first, a smug smarty-pants second.

You can't compare Lebron to Bosh.

Lebron IS a MAX player. Some could argue that CB isn't, I personally don't think so.

I can't wait till Bosh signs somewhere and is a key cog in a winning team. Then people around here will have nothing to do but look at our organization and it's mistakes throughout Bosh's tenure here and not simply blame Bosh for everything and then ripping him as he leaves.

Lebron's on-court performance tells a different story.

And he is probably worth $25 mill/year while Bosh is only questionably worth the max.

Bosh has totally changed his personality over the past 180 days, he's not the same guy anymore.

So I can see the concern that a team would have with him since he's very much about the number of Twitter followers right now.

I wonder if he can really handle top level US media coverage.

That being said, he's still going to get his max. If Miami won't accomodate him then New York or Chicago will.

Agreed. I'm not pissed at the fact that Bosh is leaving. Some people still feel that it's Bosh's fault.

But he is being a total media w*ore and it's pathetic.

"@jadande Good reminders today of why Twitter should be used primarily for entertainment purposes. Some fugazy stuff floating around out there"

LOL i'm not jumping on the bash-a-bosh bandwagon cuz I think its pathetic, but Adande could be referring to Bosh.

:lol:

haven't heard "fugazy" since Jay-z's In My Life Time Vol 1

We get it.....That is like the third time you have told us this much. You are not blaming him for leaving, but don't like the way he is doing it. Point taken :roll:

I'm turned off like everyone else by Bosh's media whoring, but I don't see that as a reflection of him not being focused on winning. Say what you want about the guy, but once the regular season starts, he plays his heart out.
