It has been written that Corey has stated he doesnt want to play for a team that he has More Tattoos than. So far thats the case in Orlando. Otis Smith is considering all players must have no less than 30 each so that should get Corey to re-think his decisions.

He said that perhaps once the Magic Players start looking like NBA players and get at least 2 dozen Tatt's each that he may consider coming to Orlando and shooting the ball a lot.

We hope that things work out for him and he is happy in San Antonio or with the Warriors. I would think that he might go to Denver as Iverson & Carmello certainly are two of the most covered with Tatt's in the league and they could make uo for some of the others that only have maybe 2 or 3 Tatt's.

Adios Corey!

Which mental asylum have you escaped from? What was all that rambling about. Don't need an apostrophe (') to write "tatts" in plural either, although you could have used one when you write "doesnt and thats"

not really we need a defender. thats one thing we have lacked and paid for it. another 18-20ppg play wont be much help if we dont have some defense on the other hand dwight's only a center and can't multiply. hedo and lewis both lack defense and wallace and prince found that out and we were defeated because of those positions plus our pg is a pint size player who got rolled over by a rookie and billups.

Agreed. I would rather have Posey any day.

Yeah...who doesn't want Posey. Not only is the guy a good defender, but the few points he does score are usually huge. I live in South Florida and witnessed him firsthand. O-Town would love to have him. Maggette can go somewhere else...I'm 'blah' about the mention of his name at this point.
