As much as I love Rashaard Lewis, and I know that most Magic fans have not seen him play to his fullest capabilities, it seems like the Magic made a huge mistake when they passed on Gerald Wallace from the Bobcats, don't get me wrong I have been one of the few supporting Lewis, But Wallace which im not exactly sure if the bobcats would have ever let him go might have worked out better for the Magic given the lack of depth in the front court. He seems tougher, he's a better slasher, what lewis has though that wallace does not is the shooting range, regadless Lewis is now injury free and watch fro his game to start picking up, as he should now attack the basket more often. The Wizards are closing in on the Magic, but the Magic will win their division and advance to the 2nd round. GO MAGIC!!

I'm still holding on to my prediction that the Magic will lose the Southeast Division lead before the All-Star break, but at this rate--maybe sooner. And Otis will not make a trade until nobody is available.

I have just heard through a reliable source that the Magic are in the process of making a deal with the New York Knicks to obtain Zach Randolph and Nate Robinson in exchange for Pat Garrity, Keith Bogans, and J.J Redick.
Right now it is just a matter of dotting the t's and crossing the i's and then this deal will be fully constipated.

Everyone get on board and blast the Magic. Actually they deserve it this time. A good PF is really needed to protect Howard's backside and to cremate guards coming down the middle. Bury this game and go on to the next. I had to make a post so people wouldn't say I was hiding.

Why did Brian Cook not play tonite after having such a good game against Chicago ? And where was JJ ? We needed points tonite and JJ is the point man but for some reason SVG refuses to play him. I'm sure he could have done a better job than Dooling. Wake up SVG, your starters needed a break, they were tired !

THE MAGIC BETTER NOT TRADE JJ !!!! THAT WOULD BE A HUGE MISTAKE !!! SVG needs to play JJ more if we want points on the board.

Wow...just when you think they turned the corner adn BAM!! Here we go again....
We'll, i'm a pro MAGIC fan...so a lose with Bobcats or a 5 game losting streak will not deter me in any way....
This team is much better than last year. I know that for a fact. Someway, somehow...we cannot put teams away....and getting too comfortable. I think we'll find a way soon. Yes, It could be too late but this is the eastern conference...and this is a young team. We should have made adjustements by now but ohh well..I guess its taking a while. so What! Lets hope they get it together quick and SVG can turn this arouund. I think we have figured out the LEWIS issue...now we just need to regroup. I think we played great first half and if we learn to contain a team, we'll be fine. I dont know whats going on..but i'm still optimistic. Learning is progress I call it....Jeez...I thought this was in the bag by the start of 3rd quarter.....I guess i'm immune to this Magic behaviour..:-)
GO MAGIC!!

Zack Randolph would be a great addition, Robinson despite his size has been paying fairly well

I think we all should be "pro" Magic fans. This team is a good team and it can play and win games. We just have to get over that hump of letting below .500 teams beat us. We need to stop playing at their level and play at the Magic level. We almost always play well against the better teams.
Go Magic !

This one hurt. I refuse to believe that Otis is not working on a deal to get a veteran PF that can play D.

I also do not understand why JJ wasn't used. I am not a big JJ fan, but Lord! If we can't shut them down, we better put in someone that can score. Maybe there really is a deal in the works that includes him...

Nanningbob as I notice from your isp you are posting from China so are your US sources.
Otherwise posting such garbage will get you one place laughed off this forum.
By the way didn't use just say that after the Bulls game that the Magic were now on a new winning streak and that you posted that the team would win 50+ games.
Well that should tell us all just how good your sources are considering you are a bust on the winning streak and 50+ win's. ROFLMAO

Sorry Nanningbob you didn't do the normal quote so I thought this stupid post was yours for that part of my post I am sorry, but not the rest.
50+ wins no way not this year..........

I did a little checking and I was told that when you trade players their salaries have to figure out to around the same when you make a trade. That is the reason for some strange trades.
The problem with John Boy's said trade is that there is a six million dollar difference that is not covered by this trade.
So either your just posting what ever comes to your tiny brain, or someone is pulling your leg either one makes you..........
