Why not?

Bosh has a nice perimeter game. In fact, he's actually better from the high post where he can use his quickness and skills off the bounce. Most big men in the NBA don't even come close to being able to match up with Bosh's speed out there. Bosh and JO can both play the box and the high post because they bot have respectable mid-range jumpers.

Defensively, JO would play C because he's got the bulk necessary to do so. Offensively, they are interchangeable pieces and WILL be interchanged. This versatility allows them to attack whatever the better match-up is on the block (if a player is a poor defender, short, or too small) or even in the high post (if someone incredibly slow or someone who has a slow sliding mechanic is guarding either).

How so?


To tell you the truth I see Bosh like 5-6 times a year (twice against us, twice against the Clips and perhaps a couple times when he plays LBJ) but I read thru the raptors forums sometimes on realgm and they say the same thing about him that we complain about LO...disappears in the clutch, can be pushed around easily, king of misleading stats, doesn't step up when needed, etc etc (although I look to draft him in my fantasy leagues cuz of his :rock: stats and his PF/C eligibility :D )


there's no question he's an agile guy, can knock down the 17-18 footer with ease but he sure does have his limitations like LO and he is someone who shies away from the spotlight when he's needed to step up

The Lakers lost to the Suns without Amare too.

Nets with Carter, Kidd, and Jefferson are still damn good.

The Nets underachieved that whole regular season.

They were a top 5 team in the east that year.

Bosh had home court advantage

And besides he was guarded by Mikki Moore while Nenad Krstic was in street clothes

Mikki Moore is a better defender than Krstic.

Either way, last year and this year were two COMPLETELY different years for Bosh, he truly advanced his game this season.

Playoffs last year: 18ppg/9rpg 40 FG%
This year: 24ppg/9 47 FG%

This is the reason why I say Ariza is overrated by some Laker fans. :lol:
