  • amnesty Boozer
  • Give Butler, Taj, and Noah expanded offensive duties
  • Hire every German doctor, Voodoo chile, Shaman, Rabbi, Priest, Pastor, Deacon, and well wisher I could find to pray over that left knee!

We don't have to tank, just miss the playoffs.

I would play it so safe, not play to lose, because that messes up our culture, but I'd try to cultivate our younger talents (Asik needs work too) while resting Rose until he is 100% healthy and then some.
This. Although Deng's gonna be out for quite some time considering he busted his wrist in late January right? Olympics are July...and he didn't want to miss that. So that's at best 6 months recovery time. That puts him into February with Rose. Amnestying Boozer for a tank makes total sense. Although if we're flirting with .500 and the playoffs, I'd much rather see us go into the playoffs and "upset" a higher seed.
