Asked yesterday if he felt he was worth a max contract, Chris Bosh didn't hesitate. "Without a doubt. I really don't see any negotiation about that part."
As for taking less than a max deal to allow Bryan Colangelo to beef up the rest of the lineup, Bosh doesn't sound like a guy who would consider that.
"An old school guy told me: 'Take advantage. You can't play this game forever. Make sure you maximize your potential,' " Bosh said.
When it was put to Bosh that he was saying no to a hometown discount, Bosh laughed before replying, "In a nice way." -- Toronto Sun
