Seriously?

I don't think he's gonna retire for 2+ years.

Well, he has 2 years left on his deal. This year and next year. So i wouldnt imagine him retiring earlier. But I dont think its out of the question he does decide to retire after this contract. He has significantly dropped off the last few years so I am assuming he will be even slower in 2 years.

I agree with this. Ben Wallace has dropped since he signed his monster contract and he became even worse when he was traded to cavs (maybe they didn't play him right, I dunno I did not watch many cavs game last season).

But I cant imagine him be able to play more than 1 or maybe 2 years after his current contract is over. If he is going to play those extra 1 or maybe 2 years then its going to be with a contender.

Thats exactly what we need. If Toronto's plans dont work out, Im sure we can make a big run at Bosh...He would fit out style perfectly

Other than the adequately priced Calderon, Toronto has no player with a deal longer than two years (unless there's some player options I don't know about). Don't see why he'd turn down a max offer from them to take one from us.

Unless Toronto has a terrible next 2 seasons, he is not going anywhere. And Indy is going to have to make some huge strides if he is going to consider them.
