Chris Bosh is not loved in Toronto. At all. He left the Toronto Raptors cold and the feelings north of the border match it. I mean, check this out. It’s not quite in the “LeBron is not loved in Cleveland” category of outright hated, but that is just because Canadians are too nice.
Canadians love their own. Like Steve Nash. Like Joel Anthony. Like Jamaal Magloire.
Here’s the problem, as pointed out by Chris Tomasson at FanHouse: Bosh, Anthony and Magloire are all on the same team. The Miami Heat. The team everybody outside of South Florida already hates.
“I think they’re more mad at Bosh leaving (but) they’re happy for us,” Magloire said of how Canadian fans look at the Heat.
“That’s just the current situation,” said Anthony, who spent time in Toronto last summer and said “some fans were hurt” by Bosh’s departure. “Obviously, it’s tough for a team like the Raptors to lose someone like Chris.”
Bosh and the Heat do not head up to Toronto until February (because if you’re going to Toronto the dead of winter is the time). We’ll see how the love/hate plays out then.
