Nelson will not be earning 7 million the first year in fact he doesn't get that much until the fourth year of his extension. And Kidd is making 20 plus million a year and wants more in the future. So please before you start shooting from the lip check your facts.
I agree only that Nelson should never have gotten an extension he is not a starter on any NBA team.
When I mentioned 7MM I just use the average for the 5 years, 5.5 MM first but 7.9 MM last. How many teams will give him that amount for 5 years? Regarding KD and CA they should be looking for 2 to 4 in my opinion. Calderon you are rght could get more, but is by far better than JN. Jason Kidd, he is a hall of fame player and you should not compare JN with him at all. But In my opinion nobody should give him an 20 mm or more extension at this stage (35 + years).

The Magic owners have a very weak record in hiring GM. That is partly the reason the Magic overall has a very average record. However, that seems to satisfy the ownership and fans. Have the Magic ever had an exceptional GM? I think not.

Is that someone defending Otis? Or is it someone beating on a trashcan with a stick?

I say you are an Unhappy Fan because you do not care at all about the Orlando Magic. All you care about is your Boy Arroyo.
I was really hoping he'd be traded so we wouldn't have to listen to all the Puerto Rican fans crying about CA and his playing time!
Hey, is not "crying about CA and his playing time", Is just not fare for CA to eat bench when he did a good job when JN wasn't playing. Now I ask everybody. Was Orlando playing better when JN didn't play? or Was the team playing worse?? Come on poeple lets be honest. Is not about nationalities, lets see it as a bascketball team. What's your answer? Now, After answering those questions. Do you think is worth the money the Magic is paying JN?
