We now have two top 5 offensive scorers & two top 10 overall players in Amare & Carmelo. Thats more than enough to build a strong team around. We're on the verge of being able to compete for a championship for the next 5-7 years.
Look at Miami. They have 2 great players in LeBron & Wade with a really good player in Bosh. Other than that, A bunch of 3rd string players. If the cap really goes down to around 42 million, that franchise could be in deep cap hell with just about no ability to improve.
I enjoy the thought of Paul, Melo & Amare or Melo, Amare & Howard, but with a new CBA, I'd rather see NY go another route. Even if we land Paul, we'll still need a productive C, 2G & solid depth coming of bench because Fields will be looking for a contract extension. It could become next to impossible to improve our team.
I'd rather NY go after either Jordan or Marc Gasol as our future Center, while keeping Fields along with the ability to still upgrade the roster. Gasol is a restricted FA though.
