Safe bet we whiff on LeBron (at which point the media will try to bury us forever given that two major stars turned us down)
I do think there's a chance for Melo to come out, but who knows?
If they miss out, they'll try to gather any younger/lesser tier guys they can get and go for the 2015 class of Rondo, Love, LaMarcus, Marc Gasol etc.
Alot depends on this year too. If we tank and nab a top 5 pick, that's block 1, if we somehow make it close as a 8-9 seed and get the 14th pick, that's a big drop off and changes how agresive they might be without both Bron or Melo.
In the end, I think we're lookin at a top 8ish pick, Melo comes in, Kobe re-signs (maybe Pau too) they stretch provision Nash, and then try to add another Max guy in 2015 or wait in the wings as a sign and trade team like Houston did with Harden.
