Where are they now - Chris Bosh

Since trading Vince Carter, Chris Bosh is emerging as the clear team leader and the primary go-to guy

On the flip side, F/C Chris Bosh was a beast with 26 points, 17 pulls and 4 blocks. The game marked his fifth straight double-dip. Think he loves life without Vinsanity around?

That was a few nights ago. Last night be almost single-handedly beat the Hornets:

Chris Bosh is learning how to dominate games in a variety of ways.

Bosh had 24 points, 10 rebounds and two key blocks down the stretch, leading the Toronto Raptors past the New Orleans Hornets 102-99 on Sunday in Toronto.

In fact, since the trade of Vince Carter, Bosh has had 7 straight double/doubles, averaging 21 points and 12.3 boards a game. During that stretch he has been shooting 55% from the floor, 78% from the stripe, and averaged 2.1 blocks and 2.1 assists. He is coming into his own as a player and it seems that all he really needed was permission.
