Now was that so hard to get an idea out of you? Tomorrow when you wake up you should try to start the day off fresh instead of acting like someone spit in your Corn Flakes.
I was only stating if you are going to just tear apart others ideas then come up with something better yourself. And it took you a half a day but you did it. I am so proud of the progress you have made today.:)
Goodness, you talk as though all I thought about for hours and hours was Orlando Magic trade ideas. I have better things to do on my weekends.

I can't believe I'm giving you the time of day for another response, but this is just another example of the childishness you have been publicly putting on display all day. You remind me of a driver who gives the middle finger or yells out the window when they get honked at for doing something stupid on the road.

All of a sudden, it wasn't the stupid comment -- or trade suggestion -- that was the problem. It was the person (or multiple people, in your case) who correct it or disagree with it who are the problem. If your defensiveness and attempts at searing comments make you feel as though you are accomplishing something, congratulations, but don't be fooled into thinking that the reading public agrees with you.

Next time I see your name on here, I know not to make a joking response to anything you say, because you obviously can't handle the idea that someone might think you are wrong -- especially if they are going to use jest to express that opinion.

...What's next for the Orlando Magic?

...More of the same. High hopes, middling results. Couple of new faces will raise expectations, but then reality will set in. And both scribes and (some) fans will revert to blaming Dwight Howard for not doing enough to win more games, since he clearly is all 5 guys on the floor, and not just one of them...
...This coming season will be just like the last one. Ho hum. Orlando still suffers from the John The Con Gabriel Syndrome--Lottsa BS, not enough substance...

You must be a woman the way you cant seem to understand what i am saying. I have passion in what I say about the Magic and will defend any comment I make. If you cant take the critisim that you are an unimaginative negative soul in life then that is your problem. And as far as the "reading public" disagreeing with me, it seems you were the only one with a problem. Notice everyone else had their own ideas of trades & signings. You were just about the only one that had nothing to add over and over and over again.

Glad you cleaned the sand out of your vagina and learned your lesson though.

best pg on the team?!?! the only way he would be the pg on the team is if you were playing nba live and you had him as a starter. then he MIGHT be the best pg on the team. nothing against him but he's more inconsistent than nelson.

But thanks for the local insight from Atlanta! I would have never guessed that the city felt so attached to Al. I went to two Hawks games in Atlanta in December, and the size of the crowds at both games (Charlotte and Utah) suggested that the city didn't even feel an attachment to basketball in general.
That said, the case seemed entirely different in the playoff series against Boston.
It's amazing what a decent Big man (Al) and PG (Bibby) will do for a franchise!

I know I was at those playoff games, I just got season tickets for the first time in five years. Here's some more insight; Childers is almost as important to the Hawks (he has Hedo potential) as Smith. The rumor here for more than year was that Smith may not be Hawk in 08-09.

I wish we could afford to take him off your hands.
