Melo is a great player but I don't think he takes the reins with his teammates as much as he should to keep them focused on the task at hand.
I think if you can replace K-Mart and JR, you'll be well on your way to having a strong contender again.
Not K-Mart, the toughness he brings when healthy is hard to replace, just don't know how long his legs have left. Nene has to stop being soft for Denver to get any were. Sent Nene and J.R. to Toronto for Bosh, they would have to be crazy to agree to that, but throw in a first round pick and they might.
