I tend to like that alot better than any 5 we could make with Johnson and Amare unless we trade Curry's contract for a good C. Best thing about this plan is that it doesnt kill our cap going foward, while I think we can contend with our lineup. Maybe i'm completely wrong but I think that this is as good of a winning formula possible without lebron wade or bosh.
