Dude, you win, you are the biggest idiot on this blog with that post.
CBF,

Stop taking the bait LMAO is feeding you. We all know, well the ones who post on here regularly knows he's an idiot. He has no basketball knowledge. Just continue to ignore him.

This is LMAO life right here:

1. Play with his JJ Redick blowup doll.

2. Then blog on here with sticky fingers.

THE END

His progression has been great. We can't expect to have him all of a sudden jump into a pressure situation and win games. But he is on a rise. It would be wise for the Magic to resign him for the next couple of years if solely because he's also a great backup for D12. I like the guy.

Jeez guys!

its ok to give up a game to Detroit to give Gortat the experience of playing next to Dwight and playing in the high pressure situations!
Fall down 7 get up 8 times!

Pretty much unless there is a catastrophe like Howard going down... Knock on wood hope that dont happen... The magic will make the playoffs and get homecourt in the first round. Now is the time to get Gortat, Lee, JJ (Gulp), and others playing time so that when the playoffs start they will be ready! Throw those guys into the fire and let em get eaten alive on the court... Its the only way they will learn... And last but not least... The magic will be better in the longrun for it!
Go Magic!

Boozer doesnt make sense at all guys. Hes a first option on a team, and a definite first option in low-post. You'd want a Chris Bosh type PF, or just a dirty, tough, rebounding PF who can grab points with putbacks, hussle.

Tiffany, I feel for you. Youd think Battie would be getting more minutes, and not only that, but should be more with Howard also in. But he is very consistently solid, and SVG prolly knows what he gets with him. He may be the guys to see his minutes rise most in this season's playoffs. Gortat has more length and rebounding though, and more potential. I want to see more of the twin tower, but not seeing Battie in a close game like Detroits was suspiscious and SVG is quoted even saying so.

It's about time you guys wake up and see just what a loser at coaching this twerp is.
Gortat will get all of Otis' lies and hopefully he doesnt fall for them. His agent can get him a decent contract in the league. Gortat, Lee, Redick dont belong on the Magic. They hustle, want to win and care about winning. All 3 need to get away from this wussie team with a coach that loves to see 3's bombed everynight and loves to watch StoneHands Howard miss the important shots and turnover the ball in the clutch
Maybe after the Pistons get rid of the Magic again this year the Owners will say... "I wonder how soon the league will give us another $11 mil loan?"

I respect your opinion on our PF needs. Just remember a couple things....

1. Boozer would love to be a second option to win a championship at this point in his career. He got a huge contract from the Jazz and now it's about winning. Plus he built a relationship with Dwight in China this past Summer.

2. Turk is a high quality player in this league.
We need to get as close to equal value as
we can.

3. Gorat can be that bruiser PF/C in reserve. He will get his minutes backing up both starters.

Wrong again clown, you say what you want to believe. Again all you're doing is posting your opinion and making YOUR own statements. Nothing you say is credible. Just admit you're a loser and have always been one. Again you don't know basketball. You remind me of that kid on Dexter's Laboratory. That's what I'll call you Dexter, although not very clever. What have you proven on here, if you're so smart?

"GORTAT MAKE BASKET"!!! I am one of the two big Gortat fans each game at the arena! He has been a solid back up center, but you can't hope he will stop the Pistons by himself! Nobody in our roster has done that for YEARS!!!
Keep up the solid job Marcin! We hope to have you here for a long long time! obs: Yes Stan, you blew that game! JJ guarding Hamilton at the end (instead of Lee) and Gortat at Antonio Mcdaddy KILLED US!!!

Stop taking the bait!!!

LMAO is just here to troll and you guys take the bait every time. Stay focused on the Magic.

I'm hoping that we resign Gortat also. I would love to see more of him and Dwight playing together. It's good to see SVG shaking things up.

Wow..that might actually work. If the numbers add up and both parties agree.
Carlos Boozer is actually dispensible for Utah.

Imagine, their lineup would be:
Okur - C
Millsap - PF
Turk - SF
Brewer - SG
DWill - PG

Coming off the bench:
AK
Corver
Reddick (2nd coming of Hornacek)

Not bad for Utah...

I've liked this experiment. He has looked good at some points during the year. He is a little foul trouble sometimes, but he is only a 2nd year guy so it's acceptable.
