To be honest I think it's important that bogans can play ,so that we have someone to defend joe johnson who I think is an all-star caliber player. I know we have mo evans but when he gets tired who defends Joe(or gets into foul trouble).Despite Atlanta's record they are a good young squad that can beat most teams in the NBA on a given night. I think this will be a tougher game then most people expect. I also want to give a shout out to My University High School basketball team go out and beat Colonial tonight.

Yep, the Hawks had our number last year as they won 3 of 4. This young Hawk team is very athletic and can sneek up on you.

Dwight needs to touch the ball everytime down the floor to spread the defensive.

FSN game tonight, bummer! FU Brighthouse (and the Magic management for doing this). They have to be accountable for this as well. The agreed to the deal knowing that FSN and Brighthouse did not have a deal!

I give up. No one wants to help a good white player get great and know one wants to admit the fact. It's a shame but true. I said before defense has nothing to do with Redicks playing time. It doesnt really matter I suppose. I had given up on (as many of my friends and coworkers have) the NBA quite some time ago, but I hoped in Orlando the kid had a shot.The only games worth a crap are the final 4 to 7 of the season. Good luck Magic maybe i'll see you again in the summer.

Good white player?Look around the league,if your good you play.White,Black,Yellow,whatev er.You seem to be stuck in the 60's man.Im white and I have a dream,that the magic will put the best players on the floor to win games.Not to please the hood wearing ignorant back country folk like yourself.Would Jesus put a player on the floor because of his color?So next time your burning your cross,remember that jesus is love,and the coach of the magic is White.

Redick sucks at defense and bogans is shooting better than him. Is that hard to understand?

Does the name Steve Nash sound familar to you? It should...he is a two-time NBA MVP...and interestingly enough...a white player. I am white as well and I don't think this issue is even worth discussing, but it was brought up.

Obviously you don't watch many Magic games...and you would see that Hedo Turkoglu (one of our best players) is also white...go figure!!! JJ's race has NOTHING to do with his playing time. The guy is a one-dimensional player...he can shoot..and while he can do that damn well...it takes alot more than that to be a constant force in this league.

Look around before you make comments that have no merit.

Maybe he means White AND American. Hedo is Turkish. Nash is Canadian. Bud is a patriotic racist!

Dude, if you think Hedo Turkalou is white, then you must be green. Turkalou is a persian, noty a white guy. All he needs is a turban :).

Turk a white guy? That is some ignorant stuff, but funny..

Stupid opinion By Dirk boy. This guy makes a great point about white players in the NBA. If you don't recognise it them maybe your the racist or maybe an uncle Tom. Black people always complain about eh lack of black players in Golf, Coaching, baseball, quarterbacks ect... They make false acusations of racism everyday and feel like they are "Owed" a job for being black, meanwhile there are hardly any white players in the NBA compaired to the population breakdown in the country, but not one alagation of racial bias for the NBA? Give us a break dude.
Black so-called leaders complained like hell when there were hardly any black players, but now that there are hardly any white players the same argumant can't be made now? Get off you high horse and look around.
Ignorance is no excuse.

Esteban think before you write. Persians are only in Iran, the rest are Muslims. So in your stereotypical view, Turk would be a terrorist.

Just a small note to assure my detractors that I dont consider foreign players black unless they are. Yao, Ji, Hedo, and others are not Black. Sad fact is the NBA has turned into CNN.

why are racists so stupid?...
Sorry, smart rascist = Oxymoron

The Middle East is mostly Arab, and Sunni. Iraq is the one majority Shi'a majority nation in the Arab world. Persia's name was changed to Iran by the first Shah in the 1920's, as part of a Westerization policy, and none of this has anything to do with Turk, who is Turkish, a member of their national team, and a member of the Turkish national guard.

And Bud? Don't let the door hit you on your way out.
