I am not huge fan of him...but that team (and most teams) would be better off with Lebron than T-mac. He brings more rebounding, better passing, and bruising physical presence that can create easy baskets.
And T-Mac is not a superstar. He had a Top 2 center beside him last year and still couldn't make it out of the first round. Put Lebron, Kobe, Howard, or Garnett beside Yao and they will go deep in the playoffs.
