Lewis is not playing his position. He's not a PF. Thats why his inconsistency. Arroyo needs to be a playmaker. While he has played much better this past games and he had stepped up his game even when JN was still on the lineup, he is not doing what he is supposed to. This is not a racial issue, just BB skills put into consideration. The Magic dont have what they want from a pg, neither in arroyo, nelson nor dooling.

How about trading Redick, Jameer and draft picks for a bid to get Jason Kidd and make a run at a title. Actually throw anything at NJ they want except Rashard, Hedo and Dwight for J Kidd and the Magic would be instant contenders

Contracts do not match up. Not happening.
With a little voodoo economics, anything is possible. If Magic owners truly want a championship banner hanging over the new Amway Arena, they need to stop being so cheap. So what if the contracts don't match? This nation is built on deficit spending.

I was watching the game earlier with the Mavs. All I have to say is that Carlos didn't do bad at all just was he was told. and look at the point differential when Arroyo was in and when he was out and the activity of Howard too.

As far of JAmeer I do think is not fair at all what SVG is doing to him. Specially he(Nelson) coming form a injury.

Everyone wake up. Dallas got spanked by Detroit and there was no way that they were gonna lose, period. SVG can wonder what happened during the loss, but there was really no way that the Magic were gonna win. Now wait till the Nets game tomorrow night. The Magic will make them pay for this loss, that's just the way it goes...
Yeah and before that Dallas won the Pistons for about 16 points. Mavs had a bad night like we did Monday

Why does every Magic conversation end up being about Carlos Arroyo... He STINKS hes just a Half-Baked Player who only excels when he wears hes country's UNIFORM! He plays to pay hes BILLS and thats it. He don't care about championships or anything... If he is so good how come he is so inconsistent. Stop Yapping people from PR don't you get tired of defending a selfish whoozo!

How an you say that this article: "Point guard situation shaky" is not directed to Carlos Arroyo, when he's the one starting and taking all the blame. I can't believe that even an article of this can be made when the team is doing so good and playing so well. So your telling me that Arroyo is being treated fair by Schmitz or Porvat(or whoever they are)? The answer is not. Why not do an article of Turkoglu back-to-back player of the week? Why not make an article of how good is this team compared to last year? This article is not fair, wrongly written and not realistic. If we were the heats or another losing team then it aceptable but this team is 3rd in the East and 1rst in the division and taking the lead everyday.
So why this article? The only reason I could see for this article to go is because of favoritism and not being a neutral person that doesn't let he's feelings or thoughts of one player get in a way (both for Arroyo and nelson)

In the Magic's last game Carlos was the pg officially unofficially Hedo was the pg he is the one with double digit assists not Carlos. Nelson was another no show when it came to playing because of his foot and Dooling is not a pg he doesn't know how to setup his teammates he only knows how to setup himself forgetting that he is playing on a team and he is suppose to be a pg for the game.

The truth is that the PG situation will be solved once management makes up their mind in what they really want.

I believe that both Carlos and Jameer are under extreme and unnecessary pressure. This may be the root cause for the inconsistency; one bad game and you are in the verge of becoming Pat Garity. Once they make-up their mind on what their rotation is going to be and the guys can understand their role only then will things improve at the PG position.

On the other hand I trully believe that they are ok at the PG position, with however 2 they choose. The real improvement for this team will come when they can get consistent PF play that could help Howard with the dirty job.

What????

Seriously, dude, what is your point? Because my point is that this article pertains to the fact that the Orlando (USA) Magic have 3 point guards, none of which is the definitive starter. It has nothing to do with Puerto Rico, speaking spanish (which is NOT the primary language of America)or man crushes. By the way, I'm Portuguese, and I can speak it as well, however I choose not to type it because we are not in Portugal. I am an American citizen, replying to an American newspaper article, so please watch your accusations pertaining to race, racism, or language, MORON!
