It would appear that Bryan Colangelo is recruiting some former Georgia Tech stars to make Chris Bosh happy. Reports are circulating that the Raptors have offered former Georgia Tech point guard Jarrett Jack a contract. I guess this is what you do when trying to sell your franchise player that he should stay in the city that drafted him for the long term. It always amazes me that the organizations sell their souls for certain players, when in actual fact it should be the other way around. I imagine when there were fewer professional sports jobs available, players would go the extra mile for the organization and be happy that they were getting paid to play a sport that they loved.
I really should get over this though, this is obviously the way it is and it’s the norm and cost of doing business in the pro sports. I myself would’ve thought the prospects of making 81 million over 4 or 5 years would be enticing enough for someone of Bosh’s ilk? If I were Bosh I would sign in Toronto for whatever they offered me (assuming it was market value and we all know Toronto can pay Bosh the most under the NBA’s zany CBA). I think CB4 would be second/third or even fourth fiddle in any other market than Toronto. I really don’t have any angst towards Bosh, I just don’t believe he’s a superstar. In my opinion he’s a solid player, but not one that will lead a team to title single handedly like LBJ or KOBE. But I guess when he leaves the Raptors next summer we can at least carrying on the Jarrett Jack revolution. Thanks CB4.
