Heat Already Unhappy With Chris Bosh?

The NBA season is only 8 games old and at 5-3 the Miami Heat, for all the glitz and glam, have been a bit disappointing.  Remember, these guys were supposed to go 82-0, with LeBron, D-Wade and Chris Bosh.  Something happened along the way, however - the Heat realized what many people already knew - Chris Bosh isn't an A-List player.

It hasn't taken the rumor-mongers long to catch wind that Pat Riley might be ready to cut-bait on Bosh sooner rather than later.  So says sports-gossip site Terez Owens:

word coming from my Miami tipster is Pat Riley is not very impressed with Chris Bosh..Bosh has averaged a measly 14 pts and five rebounds and his interior toughness is in serious question..My source goes on to tell me that Riley would consider moving Bosh if he could get a decent big man in return..someone that plays more like Joakim Noah or Anderson Varejao..a total energy guy to compliment LeBron and Wade’s scoring..

The report goes on to mention the obvious - a player like Noah or Varejao isn't available and I have the feeling the Heat would be the LAST place the Cavaliers would turn if trading Varejao became a realistic option.
