I think that if Bosh goes to a team where he is the only big name or a team that that has only one name, we can see him return to his Toronto form. The Wizards are one of those teams.
Top 10 players don't score as many points as you and me in game 7 of the NBA finals... If the Wizards get Bosh they will just be Atlanta. Make the playoffs but never actually make a run or win anything. Plus the Heat won't trade Bosh for picks, they would want a player that could help them win a championship now. They probably will not even end up trading him.

I actually did thing he played well, he just did not play like a top 10 player. There is a huge difference between the two. I think Chris Bosh is a great player. He just is not top 10. Too many other great players. I just wouldn't build a franchise around him. Toronto tried to and it did not work out that well for them. He is a great 2nd option though. You just won't win championships or even make it out of the first round if you try to build around him.

I dont want Chris Bosh anywhere near the Wizards.

Quick note on Timmy Duncan, #1 most boring player of all time.

Alex Len may go #1 overall, with Dipo at 2 to Orlando.

Going to be an interesting draft if it shakes out like this.

I think it's dead in the water... although with Ernie, you never know.

I hope the wizards get a top 2 pick next year. The only way the wizards are going to get a star (which you need in the NBA) is by asking stern or silver to hook them up with a draft pick next year. But I can only hope the wizards get the next Tracy McGrady in wiggins.

I just think you could get a younger 15 point, 6.5 rebounder right now at 3. Deng not gonna sign here after next year. Ernie is an effing fool to do that.

Thoughts?

I'd go with Bennett over Porter since Bennett has always produced. Porter would disappear come tournament time (Big East and NCAA)
Can you start a new thread on this?
