The contracts don't match up, thus the trade can't happen. They money has to be within about 500k of each other or so. It's something to that affect.

And this offseason SVG should be looking at how to make this team better. HE SHOULD plan on not having Turk. Dwight should be working on his post moves and get better with his free throws.

All of these things are good to note, but the main thing this offseason is what Otis does or doesn't do in free agnecy this year.

I'll just continue to post this info until after the Magic go over the Cap and give Turk 10mil.

Is Turkoglu really worth close to eight figures? John Hollinger's Player Efficiency Rating isn't perfect, but it's probably the best method of comparing players.
Turkoglu's PER this season was less than Travis Outlaw, Marvin Williams, Grant Hill, Rudy Gay, Anthony Randolph and Richard Jefferson. And PER often punishes player who are shut-down defenders -- something Turkoglu is definately not.
Read it and weep Magic Fans.

Yeah we really need to study tape in the off season. The Lakers really trounced us in a few areas of the game that are pivotal to winning. I think in every game in the series they had more shots on goal. Sometimes by a double digit margin. Now some of that is turnovers and giving up offensive rebounds but I think it was game 3, they had 6 more offensive rebounds, TOs and steals were about the same and they had 14 more shots on goal. I dont know how that happened and some of it probably came from fouling dwight before he shot the ball but theyre really good at getting those 2 for 1 opportunities at the end of quarters. They were able to pull that off every time. Its obvious thats something that Phil Jackson preaches and they work really hard on. If we could have limited some of those it might have been enough to turn games 2 and 4 in our favor despite all the horrendous foul shooting and turnovers. Our team just wasnt even aware of those situations and that costs us shots and gave them extra attempts. SVG said experience doesnt matter with players but I think he has a lot to gain from the coaching aspect if he wouldnt be so hard headed and actually take the time to learn, develop, and get better.

I'm with you here. He is not worth it. Maybe the 7 mil he left on the table, but not any where close to 10. Let someone else over pay him and save our cash for next year. No point and over paying now.

Van Gundy is funny. First he says that experience is not important. Then, he wants to use elements of the triangle offense which, most people understand, is very complicated and takes a lot of practice to master. Yup, there's that word 'experience' again.

i think hedo should go as much as he has done for the team i feel the ball moves alot better when he isnt in the game i know hedo is a play maker but and i like the guy but im not the biggest fan of his i would rather see a starting five like this

howard , gartat, lewis,lee, nelson
then the bench will still be very deep as well

"magics"??- you are a complete moron. Nobody says 'magics' unless you're an absolute toolbag - which you obviously are.

Hollinger thinks you can calculate everything in basketball based on a box score. Feel free to actually watch basketball. It helps when forming an opinion about a player. There is no measure in PER for making clutch shots which Hedo does. You're an idiot.

This just came up on Redicks website-Is this guy delusional or what--per him I was reflecting on my season and I think when most young players come into the league they think it’s going to be easy and they are just going to hit the ground running. But I’ve really had to work to really improve. This year was a big step forward for me in terms of my development and my improvement. I think I’ve established myself as a threat in this league. A threat not to be picked up by anyone. He's a joke.

SVG, on Raffer Alston, make a lot of sense , do not trade Alston. I, am not even sure if Nelson, is better than Alston, let them battle in training camp fpr the starting job and Magics will have two outstanding PG.

Is it true that everyone in Ohio is originally from West Virginia and all are not allowed to have anysex outside the family?
Besides, Hedo has already proved he isn't even worth what he gets paid now. He's a born wussy that has sat on benches for 7 years and played one year in his career worth a crap and that wasn't all that great an improvement and this year he hada headache in the big games.
The MAGICS win when Hedo sits down in crunchtime. But the MAGICS are not known to be a crunch time team and have proved they cant hold a lead or win the BIG One!
Hope you and your Sis are doing ok, good luck, and tell ur mammy and all in WV I said Hey!

Well, since I just told you the triangle was complicated and takes a long time to master, go right ahead! Just prepare to suck for most of the next season (or longer) while the coaches learn the system, then teach the players, and then, if you're lucky, they start to see some benefits.

Yay! Its awesome! Lets copy it.

I actually had a feeling SVG would try to incorporate some triangle offense into the Orlando system. Except, since they play in the Amway Arena, they would call it the "Pyramid Offense."

Awwww. Seems like I did pretty good for being an Idiot as you mentioned. We Dukies study hard to be Idiots.
I suppose I shouldn't pick on a WV transplant that had to grow up the way you all did.
Sooooo, I'm sorry that you have so little knowledge and I'm sorry that you never had the opportunity to be schooled by anyone other than the GED folks there in Ohio.
Hey. Comeback when you actually know something about basketball.... promise?

Awww, poor little troll thinks I'm from WV or OH. In fact, I'm from neither! Continue to argue the small stuff though. You obviously have no knowledge of bigger, better topics than to try make fun of where someone is from. Later, clown.
