Chris Bosh wants to play with stars

I'm probably reading too much into it, but it sounds like Chris Bosh might prefer being a second banana rather than his team's best player:

"Anytime you get a chance to play with a great player, it’s pretty sweet. You know, most of the times it’s like, ‘What if… What if… What if… I wish I could play with this guy, I wish I could play with that guy…’ Very seldom, it’s the reality. That’s something [LeBron and I] talked about with USA and that’s something LeBron said himself, he’s like, ‘I always wish I could play with Dwight Howard. I always wish Chris Paul was my point guard.’ That’s kinda something guys always wish for."

I'm almost certainly taking his words out of context, but it's something to keep in mind when pondering the summer of 2010. Update: NBA Roundtable examines the difference between Bosh staying and leaving Toronto -- it's roughly $35 million over six years. I'm hardly an accountant, but that's a lot of money.
