Bosh tries too hard to turn NBA bball into some sort of entrepreneurship aimed at making him a celebrity. There is no surprise people are starting to question wether he wants to win or not.

Hes an idiot for not thinking a potential employer was going to look into his behaviour leaving here.

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.


Bosh was a media whore long before free agency started and no one had a problem with it then. Its now that the US market cares about his web activity and the fact that he's leaving that's making everyone around here so upset. It's called separation anxiety.

Frank Isola from the New York Daily News was saying the exact same thing about Bosh on
Twitter the other day....

No NBA Free Agent has acted as Silly as Bosh has on Twitter

He's seemed more into the media attention and "brand building" and less concerned with the basketball side of things.


You read this and wonder, if truely they said something like this to someone who they are dying to sign. It just explains why they cant get anyone of prominance to sign with them.
They haven't even inked the guy and they already are pushing him out. Great star and keep up the good work Pat, Zo and Co. hopefully you'll end up with wade and Beasley (if at all) just like you started.

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.

not really, we have heard first hand from bosh. everything we have heard about lebron has been second hand(so we dont know if its true or not), he himself has been very quiet about everything. bosh on the other hand, has hosted radio shows in ny, twittered, gone on espn, and has been very open about what he is doing.

He will end up like them, because of the media and bandwagon fans. If a group of 10 guys boo Bosh, the rest of the crowd will follow, sorta like zombies.

No I mean like them in wanting to leave Toronto to win only to never win a thing and become washed up bums on multiple teams...

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.


ahh..so only max players are allowed to attention whore and focus on the brand more than the game

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..


Just change teams. Don't be a bitch about it.

Bosh's antics may very well be "fugazy", but at the end of the day, the team the adds him to their team that already has another all-star is going to sky rocket up the power charts. Bottom line. That team that signs him just needs to decide whether they are willing to accept a tool in the organization in exchange for a a crack at the NBA finals.

I agree the name calling is a bit much but we are not his co-workers.. Instead Bosh is on the Board of Directors of a company who didn't perform so well and we are shareholders in this organization. And now that he is leaving unfinished business so he can work for a company who in great financial standing with loads more potential.... And he's doing it in an unclassy way.


I actually want Bosh to leave but I can see why people are pissed with him..

Not surprising,

Miami is the smallest market contending for the big 3. If Bosh asked about anything other than basketball their answer would be "um, we have sun". Probably just damage control.

This way if he doesn't go to heat, it's because he wasn't committed to winning, not because Heat wouldn't pay him. Riley needs to realize CB doesn't owe him anything, just becasue he thinks he has a good idea. Riley just trying to get him to take less.

Man, Raptor fans are acting like imature woman. Attacking Bosh because he made you sad :( :cry:

Grow up people.

Bosh busted his ass for this joke of a franchise since he was a rookie. The Franchise let him down, not the other way around. They gave him joke teams to work with and he tried his best. He got NO attention from the American media at all, and is finally getting some, and enjoying it.

I also find it hard to believe this was said on ESPN at all. Considering of all the free agents, Bosh has been the MOST SILENT. The only reason you guys think he has been in the spotlight the most is because you are following him like stalkers.

Wade is filming a documentary, James is plastered all over ESPN. Bosh has tossed out a couple tweets, big **** deal.
