I just hope jj can continue shooting 26% from three point land and having more turnovers than assists..if you combine that kind of offense with his normal great d the Magic will be fine

This hurts Pietrus and the Magic most of all. THey really wanted Pietrus playing efficiently +/-, but only 3-5 weeks means itll happen later rather than sooner. Atleast we solved the logjam at the guards spots haha, I want to see Reddick shoot better % and Lee to just shoot period, Lee needs to play aggressively, not passively. Show us your high scoring college games.

Better to have this happen now, then late in the season, but this is really making the Magic thin. Now they need to hurry up and pick up another guard.

I called this loss folks. I said this is a new year. Last year the Magic were lucky by not having any kind of injury problems. I called the shot. I said they were one or two injuries away from a .500 season. Combine this with the fact that they haven't played any good teams yet. The losses will begin to pile up folks. The Magic will go 5-11 in their next 16 games. They will be 17-15 by the time the injured players begin to return. You heard it here first folks. I called it. I called it.

OK J.J., it's now or never. Should see 30+ mins/game for the forseable future. Hopefully, this will give him a chance to get in a zone. It is tough to shoot well when you know the coach has an itchy trigger finger. I really hopes he does something. He obviously has worked hard based upon how much better he is playing on defense.

Welcome to the '08-'09 season. No one is talking about Wade being hurt b/c he has played every game.

WOW. How about I call this: You are an A-hole. Way to go out on a limb and call the Magic losing some games because 3 of their top 7 players are injured. Any team that loses three of their top players has a chance to go .500. If the Lakers or Celtics lost three of their best players, they would be .500. Why don't you support the team and shut the FU*% up. They need real fans who support them during injuries and losses, not some numbnuts who sits on his couch criticizing. Go eat more turkey you nerd. I hope you choke on it when the magic win tonight, despite your *meaningful* criticism.

This are just role players as long as the big 3 are still playing this team still has a chance to win some games. See we are not just a one player show like you down there in little cuba.
