Dear Chris Bosh,

I am a Warriors fan and humbly submit that you should consider Golden State as a possible destination. I know that you have some concerns, but hopefully I can address them quickly.

First, free agents have been afraid to sign with us because we have one of the worst owners in sports.

Good news on that front. Cohan is on the way out, with Larry Ellison possibly taking his place. Without the bad owner, we are just a place with plenty of nightlife and great weather, and we have a team with tons of talent.

Secondly, people say we don't have the cap space.

However, we do have the talent to swing a sign and trade. This way we can offer you more money for a longer time. Andris Biedrins, Brandan Wright, and Monta Ellis (with a straight-up trade of Corey Maggette for Hedo Turkoglu, since he has not fit in if the Raptors are interested).

Why the Warriors?

The Warriors can offer you more than any other team. We can give the Raptors enough for a sign and trade to give you more money. We can team you with a young big with enormous potential (Anthony Randolph). Chicago can offer the impressive young big, but who is going to spread the floor on Chicago?

They have no shooters.

We have Stephen Curry, Anthony Morrow, Reggie Williams, and Kelenna Azubuike. This is supposed to be a stacked draft, Chicago may have to trade picks with Milwaukee, the Knicks' pick is held by Utah, and Miami is not in the lottery. We should get a top-five pick and we may even land John Wall.

Finally, let me appeal to your legacy.

If you go somewhere with Wade, Durant, or LeBron, you will be Robin to their Batman. The time is here for the Warriors to emerge; we just need a player of your caliber to get us over the edge. When the Warriors are good, you will get the credit for transforming our destiny.

Imagine the endorsements you could get by transforming a major market. (Transforming the Clippers would be the biggest stage, but you saw what happened to Blake Griffin; do you really want to risk that?) I saw you emerging in the All Star Game. Let us provide the platform.

Just imagine getting passes from Stephen Curry, who I like to think of as Nash Jr. Imaging having your assist numbers inflated because when you kick out your shooters will make such a high percentage. You will play with an energetic, athletic, young big who can put his focus on outstanding D with you taking the scoring load. Transforming the Warriors would be just the thing Hall of Fame voters will take into consideration.

Please consider all this during your impending free agency and we wish you the best of luck in recovering from your injury.
