Wasn't this Pietrus guy supposed to lock the best shooter of the other team? Why SVG never play him and leave the work to Johson and Lee?

Smith is not a good GM. He wants JN to have surgery because he's looking in a future, and yet he doesn't want to trade Turk! Turk's agent showed him all his cards! They will opt out! And now, in my opinion, Turk plays horrible so there will be no interest in him before the dead line! What a F.... mess!!!!! it make me sick to my stomach !!! Smith get a grip, trade Turk, let the team build new chemistry with whomever we get and next year bring it home!!!

That was ugly, and it will continue to be ugly for a while. It is obvious we are going to see if C. Lee can become a PG. That will lead to some ugly moments . In the long run though it will be to our benefit, so its patient time. Sure would be nice if Hedo and Lewis would get out of their scoring slump though. One guy has popped up at PG for the right trade and that is Miller. I didnt think Philly would be interested in moving him but they might. It would take Hedo and another piece to do it but I dont think Philly wants Hedo. Would be an interesting trade though if we want someone with experience. Scratch Nash, Phoenix is going back to run and gun, they will be fun to watch again. Be funny seeing Shaq get to he midcourt line only to turn around and go back to the defensive end again.

I can't believe the Magic won't trade for a decent point guard. They went cheap with Lue. The Magic are going to blow what could be a great season by going cheap. Sounds familiar. Oh yeah, that's how they lost Shaq.

Well make a deal. First the Lue deal was in the works before Nelson was hurt. So that was not a done on the cheap. 2nd Propose a deal then if you think you are so great. Over the last week I have offered two but Phoenix is not going to break up their team now so Nash is gone. Philly is the only team I know that is willing to part with a starting PG right now so what is your source of info saying??????

Hedo must go!! What the heck is he thinking? He plays so sloppy and flops all over the place. His value has dropped severely and Otis needs to move him and another player for a real point guard. The ship is sinking Magic fans. Since the Jameer injury, the Magic have alternated wins and losses and that's not going to help with team confidence. At this rate, Orlando might lose their grip on the division.

That was an awful game, granted that we were playing against the best PG in the league without our best PG, but still. The fact that Hedo and Shard were no factors really has me worried. We need them to step up, not step out.

We have to make a trade for a decent PG thats under 30, I mean, we are going to get toasted on a nightly basis if we have AAPR stars AJ and Lue as our PGs.

Lue trade was bad, we should have saved bogans for something better or at least gone after a younger guy that we keep up with the better PGs.

It was only one game, but we are 3-4 without Nelson in the lineup...

The Magic looked lost, sluggish, and you could easily see they gave up by not getting back on defense by the middle of the second quarter. They look like a bunch of high school kids out there playing. If they are going to sit around and feel sorry for themselves over Nelson being hurt then go home. Injuries happen and nothing you can do about it. Either suck it up and play ball or quit. Your season is over if you play like that from here on out. Won't even make first round playoffs.

Ive just tried the trade on ESPN NBA Trade Machine and it's good. OM sends Hedo and B. Cook to Chicago for Kirk Hinrich and L. Hunter.How about ? JN comes back and KH plays 2.

Goodnight Magic. Thanks for the good run first half of season, but you've clearly made this a 3 team race between Boston, Cleveland, and Detroit. Maybe next year or two if you survive free agency...

Good trade, now we have a team full of point guards, Please trade also Dwight for Nate Robinson so we can have anohter point guard.

I enjoyed that game quite alot. The Hornets decided at Christmas that VanGundy "dissed" them just like he did Denver.
I have never been a Chris Paul fan but I'll say he certainly made every Magic player show what a farce they are on defense. This game also showed pretty much ALL the flaws I have posted about forever.
I enjoyed watching that poor JJ Redick that cant play defense being the only one on the floor that PLAYED DEFENSE.
I was sorry he missed those last three 3's. I felt he should have had 23 to 26 points.
Well, onward and upward. BTW, Paul would have made Jameer look just as bad had he played, lol.

If SVG continues to play Turk I will punch him in the face. The guy is terrible and his "creating" is wildly overrated. TRADE him or I will go crazy. The guy has the IQ of a hog and the athleticism of a sloth. I laugh at anyone who truly believes in Turk getting better. We will go NOWHERE with him.
