This is my 2 cents:
there are superstars in this league who have relationships off the court and want to play with each other but above anything else, they want to win.
If you can get lets say CP3 and D12 to commit to wanting to sign with us in 2012, would you just amnesty amare, free up his cap hold back and sign those 2?
As much as CP3 wanted the stat/melo tandem, im sure he'll get over it in a nyc minute, when he sees he can team up with melo/d12. All this is contingent on ofcourse both NO and Orl not trading them during midseason, which im almost 100% sure they will since they dont wanna b lebroned or boshed.
