I agree...best move available BC pulled the trigger on. He gave up injury riddled, chemistry cancering backup PG, average C, marginal C prospect, and filler, for an Allstar when healthy, and a solid big prospect who should be developed by the time JO's contract is done.

What this does is shore up our porous D, gives us that big body down low that this team has been missing since conception, and elevates pressure from Bosh. Not to mention opens up lanes for our slashers (I think moon can average 10+ PPG) and open looks for our shooters.

No other trade could have made this impact, we have the best all around frontcourt in the East, and possibly in the NBA...a very solid PG, a SG who knows how to operate, 3 point specialist, and a potentially athletic slasher, not to mention Bargs. The dynamic of the team drastically changes, only worry i have is depth, key injuries to O'Neil or Bosh for long spells will make or brake the season, but if healthy we have a shot at 3 in the east no doubt. Which i think we all agree seemed highly far fetched before this move.
