Most people want the King in 2014. now while I disagree with that, I also think it's the least likely scenario.

 

But I do think the Big 3 will be broken up.

 

Now, with Bosh gone and Kobe in his last year, I can see Wade or Bosh having a positive impact on this team.

 

Cons:

Wade is breaking down and by then it can be OVER.

 

Bosh is ultra-soft and regressing as a player.

 

Pros: They could be better players than they are perceived to be. Playing with LeBron has forced both to change their games. Bosh in particular. But even Wade.

 

Think about Kobe in the Olympics. It looked like he was the least great of the elite players out there. But when the season came, he looked as good as any player not named LeBron and truthfully, at times his HEIGHTS were GREATER than LEBROn , this past season.

 

 

Wade is the SAME kind of player. He RISES to the occasion.

 

Bosh could be the best overall power forward in the game, If used in a manner that can show his skills.

 

 

They should NOT be viewed as MAX players by the END of this contract and  You might can squeeze Bosh,Dwight,Kobe,Nash, and an Iggy or Batum or someone like that.

If Wade comes of the bench, he gives only gives a good quarter now, maybe a decent first half at best. I don't think he can elevate his game before, and certainly not for the lenght of an entire game. I mean maybe he is trult really banged up and needs a good healing off season but still it's clearly visible his best years are behind him statistically.

 

As for Bosh really, people rage at Pau who helped go back to back championships just because he isn't as aggressive as we'd like and is considered soft. Imagine the frustration everytime Bosh take a three point shot or fails to get a secured rebound right on top of him.

Neither. Another year under Wade's belt is another year of his body deteriorating. Bosh isn't an improvement over Gasol.

 

I wouldn't want a 30+ year old LBJ either. Where was he last night?

Chris Bosh next to Dwight would be incredible.  Anyone who thinks otherwise is kidding themselves and knows nothing about Chris Bosh other than what he has been reduced to in Miami.

Especially for about 10 million.

 

Put it this way, Pau had to be elevated , with Kobe's presence, to play at the level Bosh was playing at in toronto.

 

He is "SOFT" for a big man, but only offensively.

 

I would say he is the BESt defensive  PF, in the one on one sense.

 

Duncan is a Center in my eyes, and Ibaka is a defensive anchor, so more like a Center,,.

I wouldn't want Wade, since it excludes us from anyone else. His game is quite dependent on his athleticism, but his body is slowly breaking down. 

Bosh, however, i think could be an asset. His individual game is really suffering in Miami and he is averaging 18ppg, 8rpg and a PER of about 20. In Toronto from '05-'10 Bosh averaged around 23ppg, 10rpg, and had a PER of about 23 - easily among the best PFs in the game and in Miami really have improved a lot as a defender. I think he would be a strong fit next to Howard. The only problem is that trading for Bosh would take us out of the free agency of 2014.

Bosh is a solid rebounder for sure, and is at an age where players play their best. 

 

 

He is as good of a defender as there is at the PF position. His long arms and foot speed are  both great assets defensively.

 

 

now, I'm also assuming he is a 9-10 million dollar player NOT a MAX player.

 

 

Wade at his worst( this season) was 20,5,5 on 50% shooting.

 

 

I figure him and Kobe together, would give you great production as a SG, but with his injury risk, I would need a SERIOUS paycut.

 

 

Let's say

 

 

Nash-9 mill(last year)

Kobe-10million

Batum-type(7 million)

Bosh-10 million

Dwight(max)

 

Wade-5-6 million

I'd like to see some real objective answers as to why guys would not want Bosh next to Dwight as piece to building a team? As long as he isnt getting 20 plus million I dont really see how he isnt a great piece to have.
