Nelson needs to come off the bench not run the team fulltime. Trade for Javaris.

It hurts losing Battie, but Nelson should just go away.

Wow...can we just stay healthy, a major reason as to why we won 52 games last year is because most of the team was healthy with the exception of Nelson at times and Battie. Lewis sat out 1 and Hedo played in every game (knock on wood).

And we always have a player injured outside of games...

The Good News is... Jameer has already got his headcase started and worries about his injuries and will no doubt be as useless this year as he was last.
The Good News is they won 52 without Battie so he still makes No Difference.

The Bad News is... They have JJ heading up the School Visits and being the Magics #1 Public Relations Guy again...that means a 4th string Guard on the bench.

I love how the Magic treat their best ticket seller, don't you all? At least he gets paid well.

We need another backup point guard!!! No way Jameer plays every game. Weaker at that position this year.

Who would buy a ticket to watch a guy sit on the bench, besides you?

DumbA** White people buy tickets to see JJ and the Magic know it. Why the H do you all think they gave him almost $3mil more?
They'll make that all back in one game, fools.
And VanScumby tells everyone that JJ is gonna be in the rotation. By the way, to his little speech VanScumby also added..."if the season started today," to that falsehood he was creating. When TODAY comes we'll just wait and see.

JJ sell da tickets...
Magics makes da monies.

You don't have to buy a ticket. You are always there during the games- cleaning the restrooms...

Do you really think anyone buys tickets because of your hero JJ? Carlos Arroyo sold way more tickets than your hero and the Magic let him go and brought in a stiff, and an old stiff at that to be the midget Nelson's backup. The Magic have taken a step forward at shooting guard and two steps back at point guard. Should equal a 44-38 season and a 5 seed. Thanks Otis.

I am so sorry you guys that contradict me on here dont have the education to figure things out like I can.
Just dont worry about all this. The Magic got what they wanted. They signed JJ to the contract...will get their tickets sold and end up in 6th place at best.
I seriously feel they could be an 8th place team, but will give them the benefit of the doubt.

Hey, you guys keep at it ok... maybe by the time the season is over some of my intelligence and BBall knowledge will rub off on you.

ust dont worry about all this. The Magic got what they wanted. They signed JJ to the contract...he will be traded if he has any value or ride the pine and the magic will end up in 3rd place at worst.
I seriously feel they could be an 1st place team, but will be cynical and say 3rd at worst.

Hey, you guys keep at it ok... maybe by the time the season is over some of my down syndrome and lack of BBall knowledge will rub off on you.
