Lee's a stud. Hopefully the Magic will keep him around.

Lee isn't going anywhere. He loves the team here in Orlando and he is grateful that we drafted him, let alone have him start.

Hopefully in a few years time, he will continue to play better and get better. He still hasn't found his role with this team, but he will figure it out soon enough.

finally....this is the first real player they have drafted in years outside of when having the #1 pick. Nelson is solid too.

Well it goes to show that most 4 year college kids come into the league and do fairly well. So... STAY IN SCHOOL KIDS!!

Lee, take your time and NEVER EVER rush your shots, KEEP YOUR POISE and they will fall in. Keep working hard and you will continue to impress us all. Good luck for tonight, kid.

If this kid continues to work as hard as he is now, both in games and in practice, the sky's the limit.

clee is such a great young man. he has gone down as one of the best to ever play for the tops. he is willing to work hard to get better, even when he was the best on the floor 99% of the time. he deserved to goto a team like the majic. i knew superman, but i didnt realize how awsome the majic are and how fun they are to follow. clee is going to be known as one of the best shooting guards in the association before you know it. buy your kids an 11 jersey, he is a great role model

lee will not hit a wall,he did not play all season long minutes! he will be fresh even into the playoffs,and he will be confident and better,more mature..so,if he keeps really improving,orlando will become serious title contenders! go magic

im fairly impressed with lee. if they keep him and help him grow i think could be a rip hamilton. can't say a wade b/c wade too me doesn't play much defense.

I have some butterflies about Indiana but I think it should be an easy one.
We'll see....I'm not worried about CLEE but DHOW and Jameer is what i'm not sure about.
Seems like they are till not over boston.

I'll tell u his role, Pietrus will be gone. Lee is a better cheaper version. Don't be surprised to see him moved for cap room to retain Hedo.

Mike Dunleavy is back, so the Magic will have their hands full tonight. Nope. This won't be an easy one -- not by a long shot.
Ummm yeah

OR HEDO could be gone....!!
Could go either way.....CLEE is good....but not there yet....
We cant just keep betting on potential.
We need to have a back up plan. Peitrus/Hedo is that and they are VERY productive right now.
We'll see.

To me Lee is overrated defensively (good hands though) and underrated offensively.

But hey - really nice pick considering he's a late 1st rounder! He seems to have the full package - he has the potential to have a long and great NBA career. Along with his allround-game he has some nice intangibles.

watched lee play all four years of college key player when he is needed and is filling in a much needed spot for the magic and to Mark in Denmark he is good defensively, and has so much potential... clee all the way
