You win a trip to see The Rockets whip up on the Magic! All because you said..." Guaranredick!"
You also see the light on AJ...I'm proud of you! Keep up the good work and get Lee to be the PG asap! I will also give you a Big Ratings Boost if we have a "Blossoming JJ"...which by the way would have happened every year he has been in the league except Magic dumba** coachs.

Honestly, I hope Rockets gets whooped. But then again, Artest!!
I dont know man....Unless Yao/Tmac goes down again. I love it when that happens and they come to me for TMAC wisdom. I told you so!!

How about a trade of Hedo Turkoglu, Brian Cook, Keith Bogans,$3 Million Cash Compensation to the Charlotte Bobcats for Raymond Felton and Gerald Wallace. This trade works on the ESPN trade machine and would give the Orlando Magic a big PG and a true defensive wing to go along with Pietrus, maybe even teach MP. This would help Dwight Howard and the Orlando Magic. GO MAGIC!!

So if Redick is obviously a better player than Bogans, why did it take Van Dumby two whole seasons to figure out JJ should be on the court? No doubt he learned how real coaches use shooters in the playoffs.

Assuming JJ could not defend (which is obviously not the case), why is someone like Jammer Nelson -an inconsistent shooter and whose defense is non-existent- get starting minutes? He's not a good passer so why the hell was SVG's obsession with benching a great scorer like JJ who's also plays smart ball, but then running the offense around a "point guard" can't can't pass and can't defend worth a damn?

What's funny is for all the stupdity that Redick can't defend and that he's slow, he seems like one of the more active players on the court, and definitely quicker than Bogans.

If this team wasn't run by Mickey Mouse, Anthony Johnson would be starting ahead of Jameer this upcoming season. He was a good pickup by the Magic. Much better at it than Jameer or Crittenton -who the Magic were looking at- to run the offense.

This team has too many scorers to settle for an undersized PG who can't pass. While not the Magic's first choice, Johnson has turned out to be the better point guard acquisition by the Magic in years.

Because there is more to basketball than shooting. Being able to stop your opponent being a primary example of something JJ could not previously do. Credit to him for his hard work in the offseason.

Jameer is a better defender than he is given credit for, although he is still only average in that department. He is also a much better playermaker than some realise - he breaks down defenses off the dribble pretty well, and his passing is much improved. Amongst all point guards, he was 17th in the NBA last season in PER, which is a good indication that he is a starting quality point, even if he is not elite. But the fact is that you can't have top-10 players at every single position. And where does this assumption come that JJ plays really smart basketball? Because he is white and not very athletic? I'm not saying he isn't a fairly smart player, but I've seen some atrocious decision making on his part in games past. He's hardly the basketball genius some would want to believe, but moreover an average basketball mind.

Now, perhaps. But there is also an important distinction between activity and productivity - put me on an NBA court and I would work my socks off, but it doesn't mean I would be productive.

Crittenton? Seriously? I was (and still am, if it transpires) all for a deal to bring Javaris to Orlando. But what Javaris has is the makings of an NBA guard, with the added caveat that he is a tweener, more of a two-guard who could run the offense at times. Do you really think that if he was ready to run an NBA offense the kid would be struggling to crack the rotation in Memphis? He's talented, but it's all potential at this time.

Interesting that you should point out another reason JJ struggled to get minutes. Lots of scorers. Dwight, Hedo and Shard are good for 60ppg between them, so why would SVG have played Redick when JJ was struggling defensively? As a fourth option, his offensive touches would not have been enough to counteract his problems at the other end. Now that he appears to have improved his NBA D, maybe he is ready to step in and contribute for Orlando. I look forward to it - anything that helps the Magic become a better team and challenge for a title can only be a good thing.
