The Blur was as phenomenal as the Magic fans (the booing ones) were awful! He runs like he has power boosters on his sneaker heels.

Jeryl Sasser were are you? Tony Parker, Leonardo Barbosa, Zach
Randolph, Gilbert Arenas were available when the Magic drafted
Sasser in 2001! The Magics inability
to draft non lottery first round picks scares me primarily because we have two max contracts starting next season. The decision to not draft a good second round pick this year(Chris Richard,Demetrius Nicholas) and not cut Bo Outlaw to sign a young quality big(Jackie Butler,Wayne Simien) is a red flag because its hard
to sign quality young bigs without much

So your definition of young "quality" is Wayne Simiens 3.3ppg and 1.9rpg career average? Or maybe Jackie Butler's 5ppg and 3.3 rpg? Let me guess, is it the 7 full minutes of playing time (1 block, 2 fouls) that Richard has played, or the zero minutes that Nichols has logged this season? There are way better players out there. Gortat and Augustine will offer just as much production as any of those 4. Players like Marc Jackson and Mike Sweetney are still available - if you wanted Orlando to sign one of those 2, it might make sense.
