Chris Bosh is a perennial All-Star who doesn’t demand touches on the offensive end either. He has no problem deferring to other stars, as seen in his run with the Miami Heat. To the causal NBA that may not be that big of deal. I believe it is a key asset because, at the end of the day, there is still only one basketball to go around.

Most NBA stars today carry the Alpha Dog trait. They want the ball, they want to dominate, they want to control the game. “Alpha dogs” are usually extremely successful as seen with Kobe Bryant. But, if you put too many dogs in a cage, someone is bound to get bit.

If players like Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James come to Houston to join forces with Dwight Howard and James Harden, someone would have to get used to sitting in the backseat. They won’t be “the guy” on the team. We’ve seen what can happen to teams that have too many drivers and not enough passengers. It can led to major team chemistry issues and can also split the locker room in half.

With anything, on court chemistry takes time, and I believe team chemistry would get built however, with Chris Bosh the adjustment period would be reduced.
