With the NBA's trade deadline approaching in a couple of weeks, there is a lot of speculation and rumors about Chris Bosh getting dealt. But Bosh isn't going anywhere and here are some reasons why:

1. Toronto Is a Contending Team in the East

With the Raptors at fifth Place in the East closing in on fourth, it seems highly unlikely for them to move their star player. Who would they get for him that can make them a better team. LeBron?


2. Bosh Doesn't Want to Leave

What most people think is that Bosh hates Canada and he's going to bolt to New York the next chance he gets. Well what people don't understand is that Bosh actually likes it here in Toronto. He's happy here. Colangelo is an active GM who wants to win, there aren't many GM's that make better moves.


3. Colangelo is Confident Bosh Will Resign

Colangelo has already done so much to make Bosh stay. From signing former teammate Jarrett Jack to keep the Raptors contending, Colangelo knows that Bosh wants to win so he's giving him what he wants. 


4. Colangelo has Announced Bosh Isn't Going Anywhere

Colangelo has already announced to the media that Bosh isn't going anywhere, and when Bosh was asked if he was expected to move, he said he highly doubts it.


5. Bosh is a Global Icon

When you think of Canada and basketball you think of Steve Nash and Chris Bosh. He's a leader on this team and he doesn't want to be any second banana to any player. He is the face of Canada basketball.

To conclude, the Raptors are playing some of their best basketball ever, and if Bosh moves, I'll eat my hat.
