More free agent “news” from Chris Bosh’s Twitter page: “Just to be clear. I never said that I’m not considering staying in Toronto.”
Well then…I’m glad he cleared that up.
Of course, the key word is “considering.” So…he never said he’s not considering staying. Can’t you just feel the love in that statement? I’m sure that’ll put the mind of every Raptors fan at ease.
Other than throwing the Toronto fan base a rather passive aggressive bone, could Bosh have another angle?
Frank Zicarelli of the Toronto Sun believes he does: “Maybe Thursday’s omission [from the All-NBA teams] reinforces the widely held theory that Bosh, while good, is best cast in a subordinate role playing alongside a dominant player. Bosh views himself as a franchise guy worthy of max money, which is why he has expressed a willingness to work side by side with the Raptors in a sign and trade. Regardless of whatever tweet gets posted by Bosh or any misinformation circulated by misguided media outlets, people should not lose sight of the fact that a change for Bosh and the Raptors is what’s necessary.”
I agree with Zicarelli. It’s nearly impossible to imagine Bosh sticking with the Raptors (or vice versa) after all these shenanigans. Besides, after Bosh leaves, the Hedo Turkoglu / Andrea Bargnani era can really get underway!
Sorry, Toronto fans.
