Deron and Dwight is a tasty combo, although like the Knicks, you're awfully thin once you get past that.
I think Deron and Dwight would play off of each other better than Amare and Melo do. Dwight's never played with a point guard anywhere near as good as D-Will and Howard is a huge upgrade over any big that Deron's played with. They've got guys like Morrow and Brooks to spread the floor and a decent backup point guard in Farmar. Brooks could turn into a Jamal Crawford type of bench player. They'll need a solid wing player like Stephen Jackson/healthy Michael Redd to be successful. No team with Travis Outlaw or Damion James as their primary wing threat is going to do damage in the playoffs.
