Arroyo needs to solve this whole PR racist talk on this forum by putting up good consistent numbers. Let's see some great passes and some clutch shots. No one would be complaining here if Arroyo hadn't been in a funk all season. I watched the world games last summer and thought that Arroyo played great. Carlos, let's see that same player in a magic uniform please.

GO MAGIC!!!

Some adjustments would most definitely help right now. I'm not talking about trading players, I'm just saying it might be helpful to get some ball movement going, and to get some consistent production out of the small forward spot. We could fix the small forward problem by letting Grant Hill switch back to his old position, and backing him up with Ariza. I think that J.J. and Bogans need to be getting more time at the shooting guard spot anyway. They are both good shooters, which the Magic need to spread the floor. The ball movement problem I think is primarily a result of not having much of an offensive system, but also Jameer's selfishness. The point guard's job is to create open looks for his teammates. If Jameer and Arroyo do not want to pass the ball, put Deiner in. I don't want to see the Magic make the playoffs only to lose in the first round. If they make these adjustments, they have a chance to make some noise once they get there.
we will not win with this lineup that we have a trade must happen IF the magic make the playoffs IF!!!!!!!! it has nothing to do with them being a good team it just means that other teams sucked worse than they do! nelson needs to come off the bench arroyo needs to be traded bogans needs to be traded turk needs to be traded what this team needs is Mike Bibby and Vince Carter add those to players and i can bet anything the magic make the playoffs!

I was glad to see Carlos get into the game and be a contributor to the outcome as well. I will also say this..When Carlos is on the floor and he is playing like he did against New Jersey, the energy level and the excitement of his supporters gets the other fans charged up as well. I must admit that at times being at a Magic game is like being at a tennis match. But Arroyo gets the fans going, and that in turn gets the players fired up too. Not to mention, the guy is a class act off the floor. I think his playing time will increase and he will be a key factor in the Magic making the playoffs.

I read Daily Dime today. It said that according to someone within the Magic organization Brian Hill will be back to start next year, regardless of whether we make the playoffs this year. The reason for this is that the Magic are giving Hill extra slack as a result of how things ended the first time around. I don't like the kind of job security that they are giving Coach Hill. Where is the pressure to perform? While Hill is busy destroying our ball club, should we just sit around and watch because we were mean to him a decade ago? I don't think it matters what happened the first time around, the Magic don't owe Hill anything. They re-hired him to do a job, and if he can't get it done, the Magic have every right to fire him.

Yea, we won the game because of Arroyo. Without Arroyo playing the 9 minutes, we would have been blown out.

Actually, we should dump all the current players that are non-Puerto Ricans and go after all the players on the Puerto Rico team.

That will be the best thing, so I don't have to read stupid comments like this one, and the best of all I don't have to see the Moron ONLYICANDUNK, HAMSTER, IMISSALOT Torku and ALMOSTISCORE REDDICK. At least in another team he could get assist because the other palyers would score and he doesn't need make the same stupid play with ONLYICANDUNK
