Why SVG was unhappy with Arroyo? Because of 1 TO? Come on, this coach is not being fair, he is doing the same as BH, same automatic rotations. Bench players know that even if their are palying better than starters they will be benched.

javier, learn proper english.. it's "why dont they trade him" NOT "why they dont trade him".. as far as Jameer, or hamster as javier likes to call him, why the magic just gave him a 5 year $35 mill contract is beyond me. he's a backup at best. His quote proves it,"There is no reason to panic," Nelson said. "I still feel comfortable out there. Why shouldn't I? We've lost two games, that's all. We've struggled lately, but things will work themselves out." Why shouldn't he feel comfortable out there?? WOW!! I got a couple of reasons, Jameer. It has nothing to do with losing 2 straight games. First off, he gets ABUSED every night on the defensive end. It's brutal to watch when the Magic have a game against a team with a premier PG (Detroit,San Antonio,Phoenix,etc). So if he's getting killed on the defensive end, then you must make up for it with some good leadership on the offensive end, which he obviously can only do about every other game. And I'm not talking about scoring, i'm talking about 10+ assists with very few turnovers. I can't stand that comment he made. That kind of attitude is how 2 game losing streaks go to losing 9 out of 10 or 10 out of 12. Jameer needs to get a clue!!

I agree with you 100%. But of course the "loyal" Magic bandwagoners will call us both stupid idiots! "It's only two games!" Nelson's attitude is what has me so ticked off. If that's how he feels, he should not be playing!.It's bad for team morale and fosters the "things will get better even if we do nothing to make them get better" philosophy. Losers are made of this!
