More Chris Bosh Rumors

February 9th, 2009 | by torontosportsmedia

Say what you want, but there is certainly a lot of chatter about Chris Bosh playing elsewhere:

“The Warriors put in their bid for Chris Bosh, according to a team source. Haven’t confirmed if it was just talks, or an offer was made. But unlike Phoenix, who is trying to dump salary, Toronto is looking for some ballers in return, but only if they are convinced they will lose Bosh, who can opt out after next season.
The Raptors, according to an insider, aren’t likely to move Bosh until this offseason. Though they are last in the Atlanta Division, the Raptors are one move away from competing for the eighth spot in the East. They are only 5 1/5 games behind N.J.
They’d prefer to find someone to put next to Bosh (I’ve heard they want Biedrins next to Bosh), but could end up moving him. Again, all this is just what I’m told.
Obviously, nabbing Bosh would require the Warriors to move a big name — Biedrins or Ellis — and some young talent to help Toronto rebuild. So this just shows that they are willing. The fact that they are throwing their name in the hat for these big players, even if futile, is a change in pace. These two were untouchable. Now, the Warriors are willing to play all their cards, even though they haven’t seen everyone healthy for a significant length of time yet.”

Add to that this from Ira Winderman of the Sun-Sentinel:

“Q: Enough drama. Pull the trigger on O’Neal. It is a win-win situation, especially if you can dump Banks’ contract. — Peter.

A: Not if there is any chance to land either Chris Bosh or Amare Stoudemire. In this case, there is little penalty for caution. Plus, the All-Star break would make for a far easier transition.”

    If Bosh wants out, so be it. No athlete should be allowed to hold an organization, fanbase or city hostage. Sure, they can always try, but we’ll have none of it.

    The NBA will surive in Toronto with or without Chris Bosh.

    I’m with you Norm….Bosh is a great player but not a #1…would be a great #2…perhaps with Lebron somewhere. If the Raps can’t get their hands on a true #1/leader, adios Bosh…

    Once again the cry baby is out in Toronto and they are going to lose another superstar. Maybe this time they will get more back than they did for Vince Carter.
