Bosh, but Michael Redd

Bosh, but Michael Redd would've gave him a run for his money a couple of years back.

I would give Odom the best

I would give Odom the best because on a team where he would be the man he could almost average a triple double and this is a player that could possibly play all position on the floor and defend a least 4 of those.

If Lamar Odom was "the man",

If Lamar Odom was "the man", the team he plays for would probably suck very bad though..

Toronto "sucks" and Chris

Toronto "sucks" and Chris Bosh is the "man" on that team.. I agree with Sheltwon, Lamar Odom is a better player than Chris Bosh... He plays better D, passes better, and he is a winner... Bosh is a better scorer and they are about even when it comes to rebounding but I think Odom BIG edge comes with his uncanny versatility (ability to play all 5 positions)..

Pau Gasol

Who's primarily a right handed player, shoots extremely well with his left. If you were to notice this up close, you would actually think he'd be a southpaw.

Odom is hands down the best lefty in the NBA especially with the way he can dribble the rock. Believe, he had a 10 inch growth spurt in High School (was actually a pg if I recall correctly). I just wish he could be just as effective going to his right, as he is going to his left, because he tends to miss a lot of gimmies when he goes up for right hand layups hah

Are you serious? You think Lamar Odom is better than Chris Bosh??? Odom may have more talent/overall ability than Chris Bosh, but he's not the better player.

I never said he was better than Chris Bosh

I just said he's a better left handed player because of his dribbling ability. If you were to honestly compare overall skill set between Lamar Odom and Chris Bosh, you'd still be willing to bet Chris Bosh is a better overall player than Lamar? Would you like a statistically breakdown?

Well, we can definitely break it down. Let's compare when Odom was a featured player in Miami, and Chris Bosh's best year stat wise.

Lamar Odom (2003-2004) 17 points, 10 rebounds, 4 assist, and 1 block per game
Chris Bosh (2008-2009) 22 points, 10 rebounds, 2 assist, and 1 block per game

Both Lamar and Chris were 24 during these seasons, and Lamar was playing with Caron Butler, and a rookie Dwayne Wade who both had their share of shots. While Chris had Bargnani, and Shawn Marion for a small part of the season.

Stats are very similar, especially when you have to share buckets with volume shooters like Caron, and D-Wade. Chris Bosh will always get the majority of the looks because he's the Raptors franchise player.

It's been said on record that Lamar Odom does not like being the featured player on any team, and he'd rather be the second or third option.

I wouldn't even argue that

I wouldn't even argue that Odom is better than Bosh....that's obviously not true...Odom is more versatile than Bosh in that he can play more positions, but he's not the better player of the 2.

I think if you match up Bosh

I think if you match up Bosh and Odom, Odom would get the best of Bosh head to head... Bosh will put up better numbers over the course of a season but I think Odom could "D" Bosh up.. I dont think Bosh could keep up with Odom's ability to get to the rim and grab offensive rebounds... I think Odom has the ability to gaurd Bosh anyhwere on the court and Bosh couldnt gaurd Odom on the perimeter or in the post...
