Earlier today, ESPN Insider’s Neil Paine beautifully broke down whether or not Heat center Chris Bosh is worthy of the Hall of Fame. You can either read it (suggested), OR look at the clip above and laugh the heartiest laugh. (After you finish laughing you should probably still read the article. It’s really good.)

This summer held the most exciting NBA offseason since 2010, and one of the biggest changes took place in Brooklyn, where the Nets arrived with a completely revamped roster.
