scipio,

It's a well known fact that it takes big men more time to develop.

23 and 11 is good, not great. Amare was averaging, what, 27+ plus before he got injured, and was younger than Bosh is now. Howard, who is younger than Bosh, is already a better rebounder and shotblocker.

"A well known fact" sounds suspicious. Will Bosh continue to develop? Most likely. But so will Lebron. Most players continue to develop. But as for big men, it didn't take Ewing, Hakeem, D-Rob, Shaq, or Duncan all that long to develop. Those are great big men. Maybe you want to qualify your statement that Bosh can be great. He won't be great like those guys, barring a phenomenal development like Steve Nash (who emerged as a superstar much later than most anyone).

I'm not knocking Bosh. 23 and 11 is fantastic. I would love it if my team, the Pacers, had Bosh. He's certainly better than our best player. But is he elite? I think not.

I'm not debating who's better this year (it's obvious), but this is a weak arguement.

Cleveland will ONLY play those two teams 3 more times (10 to 7). I'm not sure, but if Chicago only played NJ 3 times this year, then that's 13 games against playoff teams in the two conferences compared to Toronto's 11.
