JJ was a No. 11 pick, not a No. 1

Drop Garrity, Turk and Bogans as soon has humanly possible!

Keeping Keyon is wonderful, he athletic, shots and runs well. He's energy off the bench. No need to look for a shooter, if Reddick is healtty. Give him the green light to shoot early in the season, and let him mature at the 2. With Reddick as a competent shooter, Nelson can become a first-class facilitator. Reshard is just what we need, a player who can make his own offense. Howard MUST become a better post-up player. At center Battie is more than servicable. He had good energy, plays hard on D, and gets out of the break.

There are great possibilities with the Magic. We can still pick up a few pieces out there, let's hope that OSmith can make one more free-agent pick-up, and a nice trade.

Insert Ron Ron into the shooting guard position. Hate to see Turk go. He has been one of our most reliable offense weapons the last couple seasons. Reddick is a back up and one dimensional. We need basketball players and Artest certainly knows the game.

alright, this response is for real, i think ariza has a chance of dominating the 2 guard spot, he can play defense on any 2 guard in the league, which is very important, and even though the magic never really ran plays for him, he had some pretty impressive bursts of offense, including a jumpshot that we saw glimpses of in the end. if we end up keeping darko, and of course we have dwight, lewis, ariza, and hopefully we can get someone who can dish the ball instead of average 3 of 15 with 8 turnovers, lets say smush parker, or mo williams. even dooling should start at pointguard, he's definately fast enough, plays good D, and we can teach him to pass, but i'm tired of other point guards having career nights against the magic because we're too short there. but yeah, ariza has the potential to play 2 guard very effectively, plus with a giant lineup like that, other teams will be wondering how to match up against us for a change. btw, otis is treating the players like they are treating teams, it's a business, by nba regulations, the second lewis ate up the salary cap, they had to dump darko into unrestricted free agent territory, i'm sure otis had intentions of resigning darko, but maybe if darko's crazy agent didn't jump the gun and started screaming we wouldn't even be worried about that whole mess, good job having patience at least otis. the bottom of the team should be gotten rid of, and are you wondering where the subs will come from? well first of all with the draft picks and kasun still around we're stacked with big men for once. but i wouldn't mind if otis and stan trolled the d-league and european leagues to find a few backup guards, i'm sure there is a sleeper out there just itching to get payed at least six figures, let alone seven, give someone a chance who knows how to dribble the ball for once, and get rid of garrity and outlaw.

a lot of people think ariza can blow up but he is not a 2 guard the magic need a reliable 2 guard until jj redick can be a rip hamilton type of player than he needs to remain on the bench we need a big 2 guard someone like a Jason Richardson or a Joe Johnson someone of that type of player.even the rumor of ron artest would be a good fit but with so many holes to fill otis is up to his neck right now to make it all work the need a shooting guard a reliable point guard and 2 big men but thats what he gets for having 4 point guards last season. but its over and done with
what he needs to do is to bring in jamaal maglore and steve blake and like i said make a trade for a good shooting guard but lets see what otis can do

Get D. Stevenson back from the Wizards. The $12mil they offered him for 4 yrs is less than the $10 for 3 we offered him last year.
