Sorry, didn't mean to imply that you're one of the bandwagon jumpers, I know you're not.Gasol is a much better player than Bosh is and I think you're going to be surprised at how weak his defense is and how his rebounding numbers are inflated and he's not a good defensive rebounder because he gets lazy and doesn't block out. Also he doesn't make fast decisions with the ball on offense and is a bit of a black hole who is really poor at passing when he's being defended well. He's going to get a ton of wide open looks playing with LeBron and Wade though and he for sure can hit that open mid range shot.
is very true.I agree with Bob, he didnt look like the same guy in the 2nd half. I didnt know if he was just frustrated with his teammates, or still hurting or what. And I say this because I think the one thing with Bosh is that he generally did put up a decent effort on most nights. So playing like he did stood out for me as something wrong.His D game was always weak though, and I think a big reason why the Raps have been such a poor team with regards to toughness and rebounding was he and Bargnani, and last year Turksonofabitch. But you can live with that when he is so clearly your best player, which he was.Id be a huge supporter this year if they went with an atheletic style of play that was fun to watch and came with a lot of effort. I dont need my team to always win to be happy for watching the product, as long as it looks like they are building towards something. Maybe the Raps will be that, and earn my support.I dont get why winning justifyes everything to a fanbase. If your team is playing a terrible brand of the sport you love, but they win, thats all good? And if they show effort half the time, its fine? Eh, not for me. thats not a shot at the Heat btw!
