I do think we can be a beast team with Melo, and STAT. With a PG to run the offense they are centerpieces of, and in the right style of offense, they could be an impossible to stop duo.
But we need to trust our management to make the right call when it comes to keeping the team together and improving through the 2.5 exception this year, and the MLE the next; or if an opportunity to trade STAT comes up, if it's worth pulling the trigger.
Idk if as a franchise we have what it takes to not mess it up, though. Especially with an MDA hot seat, I smell a return of Isiah in some capacity if we make a change.
