    LaMarcus Aldridge
    Kevin Love
    Al Horford
    Amare Stoudamire
    Pau Gasol
    Kevin Garnett

    That $2,488 was nice

    Cause I'd take every one of them over Bosh (except maybe Love). And thats not including the old guys (Duncan and Garnett, but thats only because they old). Bosh is no where near the second best power forward right now. More like 5 or 6th best. And he is getting paid close to max dollars and thats the issue.
    Yes.
    No.
    Yes.
    Yes.
    Yes.

    Bosh averaged 24 and 11 his last year in Toronto and shot 51% from the field.

    I don't think so. Reds44 said he was the second best power forward in NBA. I think he is probably the 4th or 5th best tops. I think Dirk, Amare and Blake Griffin are currently better. I think a strong argument could be made for Randolph and Gasol and Aldridge. Either way, he is in that 4, 5, 6, or 7 range IMO.

    Where are you disagreeing?

    And I said he's not a max player. But in a league with a cap, there aren't many players that I wouldn't give a max contract to, that probably could get one on the open market. Probably leftover from the nightmare of Allan Houston.

    Ahhhhh, the Scott Layden years. Shandon Anderson and Howard Eisley both traded for and owed over 90 million for the two of them. Salary cap nightmares

    Re: NBA Playoffs Thread 2011:

    It's hard to gauge Bosh's value as a third option but as a star player, he is better than Amare (better defense and rebounding)... Randolph? Really? The guy is a cancer. Gasol... stat wise Bosh > Gasol but I think Gasol probably has more impact on a game than Bosh does. Gasol plays alot of C though with Bynum out with his yearly injuries. As for Griffin, the dude is a rookie. Let's see him slump a little and see how he reacts.

    I'm not even gonna debate stuff like Horford > Bosh. Whoever posted that either doesn't watch the NBA or is trolling.

    Re: NBA Playoffs Thread 2011:

    Bosh is definitely top 5 not his fault he is the third option on Miami. In Toronto he averaged 24 and 10 his last season there, and he did perform well the last couple of games in the Finals.



    I still would trade Wade for a big and depth though as I think with the way he plays his body is going to start breaking down with injuries in the next few seasons. He plays with reckless abandon out there, has to catch up to him sooner or later.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    Miami was two 4th quarter meltdowns from sweeping the Finals and not having any of the series go for more than 5 games. This was the worst Heat team we will see. so let's give them a few years before we break them apart.

    That's true. Looking at this objectively, I don't understand the "break them apart" or fire the coach mentality. With all of the constraints, the Heat were not constructed to win it all this season. Granted, the East was not that strong this year due to injuries and questionable roster moves--I'm looking at you, Boston. But still, to come that close to winning it all in year one of Lebron/Wade/Bosh era is actually quite an accomplishment.

    Short of some vets taking less money to play with the big 3 I don't really see how you can do much better considering what restrictions having 3 max (or near max) contracts puts you behind. I think the Heat as long as they employ all 3 of the big 3 are always going to have issues with depth and relying too heavily on the big 3 that will stumble when they face a team legitimately 7-9 deep like Dallas was this year.

    Not to mention the fact that theres already talk with the new collective bargain contract coming up about the league going to a lower HARD salary cap and may necessitate trading one in order to get under the new cap.
