There may not be a better fit for Dwight Howard at the 4 outside of Kevin Love than Bosh. Especially if we are not paying max $$$.

Definitely not Wade. Bosh potentially for the right price.

I'm not surprised people are throwing dirt on wade's career. But I think he will bounce back.

 

Bosh is almost an obvious fit for the right price

As both these guys would have to opt out of a near max deal, I would expect they would want lots of money.  I have seen the show that involves guys over thirty who USED to be awesome.

If Dwight is here Bosh would be an amazing addition!!! 

His mid range game, ability to stretch the floor and his rebounding would be welcome.

He really doesn't get enough credit for his contributions in Miami.

I'd gladly take his mid range game especially next to Dwight, he'll hit that shot more consistently than Pau would, and with Dwight it would make it near impossible to crowd him because Bosh would always be open from the mid. 

Gotta take off the glasses for a moment, Bosh here with Dwight is a deadly combination.

Same guys in here that would probably want Kevin Love on a max wouldnt take Bosh lol.  Bosh is definitely a better player than 10M but not a max level.  Bosh > Love and outside of gaudy rebounding stats I'd like to see someone argue against it.  We know love is younger but dude's raw stats really cover up the deficiencies in his game.

Bosh over Love?

 

I'd love to see an argument FOR it.

Alas .. knowing our front office, the only Miami players they may target are Joel Anthony or Juwan Howard (if available).

For one he's a better overall player in every aspect but rebounding and 3 pt shooter.  Love is very inefficient as well.  Shot 45% from the field at 6 10? Horrible defender in every aspect.  Bosh's stats arent as guady due to his reduced role but he is the more skilled player.  If you dont consider age and want to win in one year Bosh is by far the better choice. 

Bosh over Love?

Wade no .. guy is breaking down at a record rate. 

 

Bosh Yes.. Still young and with Howard theyd be a pretty good 1-2 punch downlow especailyl considering Bosh can spread the floor better than a Pau Gasol.

I once considered that taking Bosh from Miami and giving them Gasol would be beneficial to BOTH teams but giving Miami a center in Gasol playing next to LeBron in the eastern conference would be handing them a finals position as well.

But still both would fit either team better, Bosh would fit better here with Dwight and Gasol would fit better there as an actual CENTER which Miami desperately needs. 

I'm not one for helping Miami though, would rather wait till 2014 and get Bosh for cheaper after getting a FA.

If Miami lose to the Spurs i expect Bosh to be moved for an expiring deal - any expiring deal. They do not want to pay him 20 million/ year for the next 3 years - same with Wade.

If they can't reload their roster this off-season, I could even see them considering moving Lebron this off-season.

HELL NO...On the one hand, Wade is absolutely washed-up, this guy has completely lost his explosiveness and athleticism and he has never been able to shoot the ball so he is just an above-average player in this league right now. On the other hand, Bosh has regressed and he is just a spot-up midrange shooter. His D is atrocious, his post-game is done (has he forgotten how to play back to the basket?). None of these guys are All-Stars any longer. If they want to come to LA for the mid-level exception, they can join the Lakers. 



Arguably the greatest franchise ever

Wade needs to go to Germany so they can pump some Redbull and nuclear waste into his knees, like Kobe did, and Bosh is massively overpaid considering his production. I would consider throwing Pau at the Heat for Bosh though. His skills really complement Dwight and he is a good defender at the 4. The problem is, that he is being paid too much and there is no way he opts out in 2014.
