If he can give us rebounds and toughness, hell i'll take him. Remember the Magic were a team a few years ago, who wanted to pay him alot of money, but he decided to take even more money to stay in Oakland

Starting Five:
1.Pg-Bell
2.Sg-Smith
3.Sf-Lewis
4.Pf-Howard
5.C-Foyle
Subs:
1.Pgs-Nelson/(Reddick)
2.Sgs-Reddick/(Ariza)
3.Sfs-Hedo/(Ariza)
4.Pf-Battie
5.C-Gortat
6.Whoever else!

This team is woeful on defense. Only Howard and Dooling have a presence. With the current roster, seventh is about as high as you could hope for.

I doubt HEDO will start....I think so far JJ is our starting guard after Hill left and his solid performance this offseason. JJ will start for now unless his play says somethign else. Besides, Hedo is much better off the bench and doesnt mind coming off it.
Ok, OK. But what makes us think that JJ will stop a Kobe or Arenas? Who can stop them? no one can. Not Neslon, Not Hedo, Not JJ.

Foyle starting at center? Check the fans reaction to Foyle's departure in the San Jose Mercury-News. Nice guy, does a lot of community work, does nothing in the off-season to stay in shape, has not improved one iota in 10 years, has hands like bricks. All-time Warriors leader in rebounds, but they didn't start keeping track of rebounds until a couple of guys named Nate Thurmond and Wilt Chamberlin (and quite a few others) had already hung up their tennies. I'm all for giving the guy a chance in a new environment with a new coach, but starting center? Get real!

Whoever writes a positive comment about JJ Reddick's game thinks that the NBA is the NCAA, come on people he is far from being an NBA player.

“Orlando Magic........... ......”

Well I agree our defense sucks but it has a chance , Also I think Ariza is an excellent defender.

Very true...but then again its a team sport. NObody can stop Kobe/Arena but then again...they didnt do much this past season anyway. Meaning...Kobe can score 80pts but if we limit everybody else, we can definitely make some noise. I think we have a decent front court to make some noise and our perimeter will make them pay.

That is also possible. I think due to his work ethic and strong summer, SVG might give him a chance and also to make the fans happy. Mostly because HEDO doesnt mind coming off the bench. Again, if JJ get inconsistent, HEDO will take over quick.

Very True.....I think with a little bit of confidence and more minutes, Ariza will be an X factor. I see him as somethign like Corey Magette with some wild defense.
