Gortat in Magic's hunt for big man
“If I go out there and play as hard as I can and still don't play next year, and I'm in the same situation, that's fine. At least I gave it my all.”
Now that Darko Milicic has gone the way of Mario Kasun, Zaza Pachulia, Olumide Oyedeji and Geert Hammink, can Marcin Gortat give the Orlando Magic a foreign-born big man with any staying power? The 23-year-old ... via Daytona Beach News Journal

Make sure you checkout the type of person you are immigrating into our country in the name of building a team. I owned a design company in Orlando when Olumide Oyedeji was there for one year and had the misfortune to be recommended to him to do some work when he bought a new home in Metrowest. He paid the deposit and arrogantly pushed himself ahead of existing customers as he was "an NBA star". We got the work completed in two weeks and then he skipped out on the final payment ($3700)and after a year of trying to collect, I had to write it off, which really hurts a small business like mine. Even though he had just gotten released from the Magic( no wonder at as a .1 percent per game player), he had family staying in that house, but refused to return phone calls. So be careful the type of personality you unleash on the unsuspecting business community, you can be sure I won't be blindly impressed by a professional player next time, although I have worked with a professional baseball player and an NFL player who were most honorable and good clients.
