EDIT: I think it comes down to this: if you think Holiday was a franchise-cornerstone type, then this deal is really, really risky (or downright bad). If you think he's a great supporting player, just good enough to keep the team mediocre, then this is the kind of deal that's necessary in the NBA.
I think this is the key point. As we've seen the past ~7 or so years, there's no point in being a mediocre team. You either need to be really really good or really really bad.
