What do you guys think of Chris Bosh saying hes a hall of famer? I don't think he is or even close to being considered. I wonder what Skip Bayless would say? LOL
He already has 8 allstars and 1 championship under his belt. He is probably gonna have 10+ allstars and will probably end up with multiple championships. Sounds like a HOF resume to me.
If Chris Mullen is in the Hall of Fame. Then Chris Bosh is in the Hall of Fame.
I think Bosh may very well be hall of fame bound. Regardless, you have to have a pretty big inferiority complex to have to start begging for it while you are still playing. That is pretty lame.
Just play your game. When you retire leave it up to others to decide if you are worthy.
Dont know about him...but his theme song is.
Bosh wont get in on the 1st ballot,but he'll get on his 2nd or 3rd try for sure..He has the achievements to back it up..........
Bosh said he's a Hall of Famer,nothing wrong with that..But most players want to finish their careers as the best of 1 of the 5 best to ever play their positions....I doubt if Bosh would be listed among the top 10 or 15 power forwards ever.....
I agree with you that Bosh isn't a top 10-15 PF of all time. When I think of a HOF, I think of a player he has the statistics, personal achievements, team achievements, as well as the competitors. His statistics have been consistent throughout the years. He is a regular all star. He has one ring, but would he have gotten it without LeBron and Dwayne Wade?
But the key is the competition? Does Chris Bosh deserve to be enshrined in the HOF with the likes of Tim Duncan, Dirk Nowitzki, and Kevin Garnett? Is he at the same level as Karl Malone or Charles Barkley?
Their needs to be a line as to where a player is deemed worthy of the HOF. I don't know if Chris Bosh is there just yet. He needs to add another ring or two before I think he's in the conversation of HOF.
People quickly forget about how bosh averaged 24 and 11 in Toronto. Yes he's a hall of famer, his stats have taken a dip but he's one of the best third options in the league and is still a franchise caliber player. Too bad he is stuck to shooting jumpers as he had some of the best post work and moves in Toronto
I would say he's the best third option in the league by far.
He's quickly developed into a James Worthy-esque player, insofar that he's perfect in his role, he plays off of the two superstar excellently, he's talented enough to be the best player on a handful of teams, and he absolutely VITAL to the success of his team. The Heat don't win any championships without Bosh.
The stats in Toronto were great and the stats are still good for a third option in Miami. I still think he needs at least one more ring since he did have LeBron and Dwayne Wade to help him. It's not that his ring is any less significant because he won it with LeBron and Wade, but how important of a third option is Bosh is the real question.
Would Miami have won if they spent that money on Amare or another star player? Would Miami have won if they added better role players instead of adding one star in Bosh? And would Bosh have won if he didn't team up with LeBron and Wade?
These are questions, especially the last one, that need to be answered before letting Bosh in. With just one ring with the help of LeBron and Wade, I don't know if he's worthy of being remembered in the same hall as Malone, Barkley, Duncan, Garnett, and Nowitizki. Another ring I think would seal the deal, but without it, I think he's not clearly in or clearly out.
Yeah you could say bosh was more important in the playoffs than DWade, he gives LBJ and wade driving lanes with his great mid range game
Instead of putting up 20 & 10 every night on a bad team Bosh sacrificed his own numbers for a chance to win a title. He's still a great player and if he were to ever leave the Heat and be the main guy he will easily average 20 and 10. You have to remember he is on a team with LeBron James who is a top 10 player ever and D-Wade who can be considered a top 25 player ever for arguments sake. This guy is easily a Hall of Famer and again he sacrificed his own stardom for a chance to be apart of a title contender. He has by know means became any less of a player because of that sacrifice.
IMO he is just not there yet as a sure HOF. Was he ever once considered a top 3 PF for the year? hrmmppppp...
his last year at toronto he was clearly a top 3 PF
one year is not good enough for a sure hof.. y'all turned real soft!!
"Please think I'm a tough guy, even though I'm really not" Hall of Famer. Basketball...
Eventually, he probably will be, with a couple more rings. Not first ballot, but eventually.
He never said he would be a first ballot hall of famer... just expects to get in at some point.
Bosh has the numbers to back it up as well as the personal acheivements.
Bosh was a top 5 pf for the later part of the decade and arguably the best pf for a couple seasons when he was averaging around 24 and 11 and his team was winning. He plays solid D and is a complete mismatch on offense. He has an excellent bball iq and is a great team player. Right now he is a probably 3rd ballot hof, and if the titles keep adding up in the next couple years his argument for hof just gets stronger.
Imo, the heat wouldn't of won the title last year without Bosh. So questioning if Bosh would of won a title without Lebron and Wade can very easily be fired back the other way. Like would Lebron have won the title without Wade and Bosh? Obviously no he wouldn't have.
at some point yes, but as of right now i feel he needs to add more to his resume. The dude pretty much just said yeah im a hall of famer. Never heard the hof locks say that. KB, Tim, Garnett. now on to the next thread PAU GASOL..
He is a hall of famer. He sacrificed his role as a star to win a championship. I think that he would be dropping 23 and 10 if he had teamed up with lebron in cleveland, or just wade in miami and people would be saying how great he is. As of now, people rarely talk about him. I personally would like to see him grab more rebounds, and improve his defense, but he was not really known for either thing in toronto. He is playing a completely different role for miami than he has played his whole life. Every fan says no player cares about winning, all players nowadays want to do is make money, be famous and get stats. He went to miami to win and knowing that he would get little recognition and knowing that his stats would take a hit. Also he would be playing a completely different role too. To me that is a hall of fame player regardless of stats.
People forget Bosh averaged 24 and 11 in Toronto? Really and those stats are completely meaningless because Bosh as a first option did nothing to help Toronto advance in the Playoffs, or in some cases even get his team to the Playoffs, granted his supporting cast was nothing to ride home about, good and great players are supposed to elevate their teams play and be that positive driving force in winning games, Bosh was neither and remains to be either, he struggles to get 9 or 10 boards which he should easily get as the third option on the Miami Roster. He has a talented post game he rarely utilizes and has simply become a jump shooting big man who plays sub par defense and can barely grab a rebound, you guys are giving him far too much credit for little accomplishment. Of course he is reaping the benefits of playing with Lebron who somehow managed to find himself doing everything again in Miami
