Ric Bucher on ESPN News just said that he's heard from people within the Miami organization is having some "second thoughts on giving Bosh a max contract" because of his behavior since becoming a FA. He's seemed more into the media attention and "brand building" and less concerned with the basketball side of things.

This is the first time the American Media has paid any attention to him since entering the league. Let him whore it up a lil bit. :roll:

I don't work for ESPN and I knew that long time ago. Bosh should STFU , because it's going to bite him on his long giraffe neck one day.

Miami is just trying to get him to accept less money so they can bring in some more players instead of surrounding CB/Wade with garbage.

As a Heat fan, this doesn't surprise me. I had doubts about this before. Can't remember the exact comment it was, but I thought he said words to that effect about 6 months ago.

So they want to low ball Bosh?
Or make other contending team less interest in him?

But I don't feel Bosh fits with Wade. Wade is a tough guy, and I think he might demand everyone to be tough. Still think Boozer is the better fit.

I don't blame Bosh for leaving,neither does 90% of the fanbase.

But the way he is handling it is totally unprofessional.
