So, basically, if every forward overperforms we might have a chance? Ennh. Maybe. Not fond. Granted, it's a heck of a lot better than most of the "Nash + 2nd for X" proposals we get, but I'm still not sure if that's sufficient. We'd still have to do really damn well in free agency, AND hope that our current futures are sufficient going forward.
