TrueHoop on Chris Bosh vs Pau Gasol--and on LMA?

David Thorpe, writing at TrueHoop, compares the things being written about Chris Bosh today with similar criticisms made of Pau Gasol back in his days as a Grizzly, and immediately after the trade to Los Angeles. Soft. No defense. Doesn't like contact. Nowadays, many consider Gasol to be the best PF in the NBA. I was wondering the same thing--except not about Bosh, but about LaMarcus. His career arc looks quite a bit like Gasol's delayed by five years: A few years of "gosh, this guy could be really good", followed by several of "this guy's an overpaid, overrated wuss". Interesting.
