Sometimes life calls for the bold move.

We need players to build around. Amare is more injury prone, he has the coldest streaks.
Melo's been injured all season.

I'm not saying trade Amare.

That's way to over the top drastic. I'm saying build around them, it's obviously not working out with these players as role players, get new ones fresh feat and players that want to win something not come because they got the best deal in example Bibby.
You could be offering a voice of reason, but I think the nuclear option is more entertaining.

If we look at Miami, each and every single one of those players on there want that ring. They went there for it. Players didn't come here for the ring, they came here for the salary. Correct me if I'm wrong, anyone.
You can't force them to be winners. This problem isn't fixable.

We need players that can score individually. Before we had Gallo, who can score also not from deep alone but was adapting to driving the ball and rebounding. We had Chandler who did a good job putting up points sometime even 20+ point games. We had Felton who would have 10 points and rack up on assists, make smart plays, was a AVERAGE player and did the job. What are we doing wrong now? Well the team probably feels like only 1-2 people can score individually, what about the rest of the team?
We had a better team before. That's a no brainer.

We need players like KMART, JR Smith, players that can go off and do their role even go out of their way.
K-Marts not a scorer though, one who's been sitting around for months not playing. And JR wouldn't help our IQ problems.

And it's all just too Nuggetty.
