The last time Chris Bosh was in town, he gave the Nets the brush off when asked if the New Jersey/Newark/Brooklyn Nets held any lure for him. Nope, he said, the record speaks for itself. At the time, Bosh was reasonably happy in Toronto, but times have changed. The Raptors fell below .500 Friday, losing to the Thunder by 26, as Toronto fans booed them off the court. If they make the playoffs--they're in 8th place now, the Raptors will be the worst defensive team in nearly 30 years to do so. Bosh has been temperamental lately, obviously frustrated by another mediocre season that doesn't look much different from the last several in spite of his usual sterling numbers: 24 points and 11 rebounds a game.
For the Nets, catching Toronto on the back end of a home-and-away back-to-back--with everyone healthy--holds some promise. .
