Alston is a great PG to lead the Magic. Cant wait to see the rotation of PGs with All Star Nelson and Street Legend True Point Skip next year too.

Alex, you must be talking about ALL-STAR Jameer Nelson!!!! I'm not sure what drives people to talk about other peole like you just did but it's horrible and shows what kind of person YOU ARE.

Alex, do yourself a favor and crawl under the rock you came from. No one needs to hear your comments.

Alston is doing a lot of good for this team, both on the court and off. Hopefully that translates to playoff success.

Alex, you don't know anything about basketball if you don't see how much Jameer has improved as a player. We have a great point guard duo on the making.

i got to admit i kinda thought rafer wouldnt match with orlando but his doing a pretty good job better than he did with us the rockets. he has so many weapons around him now, orlando could definatley compete for a title this year or some time soon. i cant wait for april 7th when we play the magic rafer should get a big appluse from rockets fans from me anyway. good luck threw the rest of the season magic fans hope your team can stay healthy.
