This has a better chance of working out than any other possible scenario. The risk is almost entirely to do with Jermaine's health. Even if he plays poorly, they're going to get more out of him than they could have possibly gotten out of Ford and Nesterovic.
Im a Rasho fan!! I dont think he is as good as O'Neal if/when he is healthy, but i think we could have got more out of him then we did.

I do think Bryan had to do something to make Bosh feel better in the next couple years. Im just saying imo the big risk is losing him and we start all over again, and i would QQ

The problem was Fords was undervalued due to his injury history, so all we could get was another good player with an injury history aswell. I dont hate the move, but there is definately a risk factor invovled.
