The Hammer is a good player and could start for a lot of teams. Until these playoffs, he was a well-kept secret, but not anymore. It would be a shame for the Magic to lose him or Turk, because they are on the cusp of greatness. Win or lose this year, they'll leave this postseason a better idea of what it's like under the national spotlight and they'll be more comfortable next time around - plus they'll have Jameer back at 100% and in the flow of the offense which, with all due respect to Rafer, is a big improvement over the current lineup.

So come on back, Marcin and Turk. We need you. You need us. It's a perfect match.

The taste of a championship is close, if not this year (us in 7)and definitely next year. Marcin and Turk could not be closer anywhere else; they will do the right thing and stay with the Magic.

Lee and Pietrus have a pretty good future at the 2, but of course I'd never mind that guy with the last name of Wade. Hmmm, wonder when his contract is up?

Marcin should play in a weaker team as a starter. I hope he could do it next season.

They will do the right thing that their agents can negoiate for the biggest pay check.

As bad as Hedo is he may stay because no one wants to pay him more than he gets now...but Gortat wont be in Orlando next year.
As far as a Title goes this was the best chance the Magic will see. They dont have the $ behind them to buy the Trophy... like NY and a few other teams will be able to do.

I wouldn't exactly count on the Magic to snag Dwayne. The Heat management will fight tooth and nail to keep him.
