I'm with insight. Bosh is easily the most important, and I'd go with his list as well. Jose was much more important when JO wasn't here. Now an average pg that can defend consistently and play good minutes without breaking down mentally or physically, could be more valuable than a Jose that ends up working too hard when defending well, and who is frankly injury-prone (and we're talking non contact injuries over and over, to the point of being carted off on a stretcher with no real contact involved). If Jose could get stronger, then him and Bosh might end up being 1A and 1B. If Solomon gets up to speed, he could end up being more than good enough to start the half-court offense and defend well enough. The question is how long that takes, and I imagine it's mostly mental right now.
