Excuse me... Are you paying attention? The Orlando Magic are ahead in their division. Something that the Darko days did not see. They are undefeated on the road. That means that they are a better DEFENSIVE team with Foyle in the middle spelling Howard, and sometimes playing there with him in tandem.Had we kept Darko instead of paying stupid crazy money to Lewis, this wouldn't be happening. Hedo used to play 2 for the Spurs, so we could have played Nelson, TUrk, Lewis, Darko, Howard. Battie coming off the bench for Dwight and Darko, Ariza covering Turk and Lewis, and our 10 point guards coming in for Nelson.
The Orlando Magic are also a better OFFENSIVE team, getting more production out of the middle because defenses can no longer collapse on Howard because the Magic have a consistant outside scorer in Lewis.
Nobody in Orlando is shedding a tear over losing Darko. In fact your bringing him up is the only reminder that he was in a Magic uniform last year since he got released.
Lewis - Money well spent. Foyle - Ditto.
With this trade, the Magic are a deeper, and by the way, where the heck is Darko now?
Never mind, it don't matter!
