I don't have an ounce of hate in my heart for Pascal, but this is easily Bosh.

Bosh was super soft but was by far the better player of the two.

This a joke?
2019 Eastern Conference All Stars

Derozan
Lowry
Ibaka
Valanciunas
Van Vleet
Delon Wright
Lebron
Embiid

There are only 2 teams in the league that rank in the top 6 in offensive and defensive efficiency: the Golden State Warriors and the Toronto Raptors.

Siakam is probably the higher ceiling when all is said and done

Cb4 had better fundamentals but could not be the man on the team and really could not create his own shot

Based on upside defense you pick Siakkam 99 out of 100

Siakam had a lot to do with a championship.

Bosh never had that chance. I think they are similar in talent and ability.

Absolutely no question about it!!!!!

not an ounce of doubt in my mind. Prime Bosh is madness! people forget!

Putting all the other things aside. The way bosh got to the free throw line at will was crazy. Pascal doesn't even go to the line!

This is an absolute no brainer for me!

Miami? hello he was an integral piece for their defense and their 3rd option for a championship team.

but i agree they may be similar in talent and ability at the very best, for Siakam's argument

ya Bosh was an allstar at the age of 21 till the end of his career. Siakam became an allstar at the age 25.

Bosh is the answer right now but only slightly until we see Siakam's career develop

The beauty of Siakam is that he is being drafted outside of lottery, and being an underdog, he proved people wrong.
Therefore, it is not about who is better at the end of their career. Oh wait, Siakam isn't done with his career yet, so how are we comparing?

I'm guessing you were 7 years old when Bosh was drafted

Bosh is better but not by a lot. I think they are in the same tier, good 2nd/3rd option on a championship team.

Prime Bosh would have been a perfect number 2 next to a James or Wade.

Bosh. Not even a knock on Siakam. CB4 is a certified HOF

Bosh and it's not even close. Bosh is pretty underrated as a Raptor. We did a terrible job of putting talent around him. Who was his best teammate? Bargs and the corpse of Jermaine O'Neal? How about Jamario Moon and Hedo "ball" Turkoglu? Sure he couldn't be the guy but he still carried those teams to the playoffs. Give him Lowry/FVV/OG and he probably raises the ceiling of this squad but probably not quite past the elite of the league.

I have watched since the pre vince draft era and will never forget when the raptors beat the knicks 3 - 2 in 01. Do I see Siakam being like Vince no, but I think he does take too much **** and is an all star type guy. he is a bosh type.

The thing about Bosh was he was a good offensive player

Played for stats

But his claim to fame as a reptile was his all star video and getting crapped on by Dwight Howard in the first round

In retrospect he was a flawed player to build around

He could get rebounds but really wasn’t good on defense as an anchor of the team

Pascal isn’t as polished offensively but IS a lot more versatile on offense more Durant like without the consistent midrange yet

He can bring the ball up and doesn’t need to be fed the ball like Ibaka

The eye test says if Pascal can have the game slow down to him like things did for kawhi and you can already see his decision making out of the double team improving —-his natural length and talent could make him a better raptor
Than Bosh ever was

2 weeks ago I would have never held a prayer for this but if Pascal can keep that mojo going he can be more impactful than Bosh because he’s not a pushover on defense

Full court, regular season run and gun flashy type game, Siakam.
Half court, playoff slow down type game, Bosh.

Bosh played Center a lot when big guys were still a thing and got beat up a lot.
