Fine forecast for Bosh

Chris Bosh brought some sunshine into Thursday night's CFTO weather picture as a guest meteorologist on the six o'clock news.

Catching a basketball from anchor Ken Shaw, Bosh looked quite at home doing the 'CB-4-Kast', showing viewers hot and cold fronts across North America, telling them to "break out the tank tops" as the temperture moves above freezing this weekend.

He stumbled only once, when pointing to Peterborough and wondering how many people lived there. He toyed with five-day outlook graphics featuring basketballs as little suns and in tribute to retiring weather legend Dave Devall, wrote 'MVP' in the latter's signature white chalk

Rolling the McDyess

The oldest player in last night's game has been generating the most positive press.

The Pistons have been singing the praises of forward Antonio McDyess, who has come through three knee surgeries to give the club's playoff chances a boost. Detroit has won five of the last seven and even though their game prior to the Raptors was an overtime loss to the Knicks, McDyess had 21 points and a career-high 22 rebounds, the first 20-20 game by a Piston since Bison Dele in 1997.

"The ball just happens to be bouncing my way," the humble McDyess told the Detroit News.

Hop on Pops

Raptors coach Jay Triano says newcomer Pops Mensah-Bonsu is just the kind of player the team needs as a template for energy, but he still has to be reeled in a bit.

Mensah-Bonsu has been electric to the point of getting in early foul trouble.

"That's just him trying to understand the NBA," Triano said before last night's game.
