    When asked about what he thinks in their upcoming match up against the Heat?

    Booz said "They’re a very good team.. well-coached.. very athletic…They play fast… They got two great players in DWade and LeBron… It should be a great series…"

    lol… Boozer missing out Bosh..haha

    Ridiculous for Boozer to be saying that.  He struggled against Horford and Hansbrough as he went for 11-9 with 2 free throws a game in this years playoffs.

    While Bosh has been defended by KG and to a lesser extent, Elton Brand to pull out 16-9 while shooting 6 free throws a game.

     

    Not sure why Boozer would do that to a clearly better player.  I’m sure Rose would rather have Bosh than Boozer.

    I wouldn’t call Bosh a great player either.  I think the term "great" is used too loosely.  Don’t get me wrong, Bosh is a good player. But to call him great?  He isn’t a top 15 player.

    Yeah let’s face it, Bosh is clearly not even close to the same level of Wade and Lebron; getting outplayed by some of the Heat role players every so often isn’t a good look. Would have been interesting to see what Bosh and either Wade OR Lebron could have done together with Bosh being more of a focal point.

    I’m not saying Bosh is a great player but put it this way, if Bosh was put on the Bulls, he’d CLEARLY be the 2nd best player on the roster.  Whereas Boozer can sometimes seem as if he’s the 4th option on offense.

    And speaking of players on the same level as Wade and Bron, who is?  But to totally disregard a guy who used to be a franchise player and could be (as well as Stoudemire) the best 2nd option in the L if Wade and LeBron didn’t join together.  Not to mention, he’s been having a good playoff run.  16-9 as the 3rd option on a championship team that has two of the top three players in the league is pretty damn good to me.

    Now, I’m not saying that Boozer should have said "three GREAT players in Bron, Wade, and Bosh."  But he doesn’t even have the decency to say, they have three good players in Bron, Wade, and Bosh.  Garnett and Shaq can talk trash about Bosh all they want, they have rings and MVPs.. but for a guy like Boozer to not even consider Bosh as an effective factor is ridiculous. 

    Especially because he’s the one that’s going to guard him in the next series and Boozer hasn’t been very productive these playoffs.  11pts, 9rebs, and 2 FT attempts as a 2nd option is not acceptable.

    Boozer need to be more concerned with Joel Anthony than Bosh, Anthony is the one that will guard him and he can suffocate him.

    I think you guys are reading too much into this. Wade and LeBron are great players, Bosh isn’t. Endo story.

    Bosh gets no love but he’s better than Boozer, neither is a great player though.

    I’d say Miami wins in 6 games, the Bulls don’t score much as it is but vs. Miami’s defense will even less.

    I don’t think thats even up for debate, Bosh is clearly better. He’s not on the same level with Bron and Wade, but very few are.
