If New York continues to be mediocre next year even with a brand new coach who's way better than D'Antoni...
...then it's time to start all-over again.
If Melo & Amare really won't cut it, then one has to go.
By then, Atlanta might be looking to move Joe's massive contract.
How about taking on Joe's massive contract but also demand big Al Horford?
Given Joe's huge contract, Atlanta might bite even if it means loosing the highly talented Horford.
This might benefit both teams but who's the better player to retain between Melo & Amare?
