Pietrus is the second coming of Horace Grant. (In that he can not stay healthy for more than 5 games in a row.) Reckless abandon is not always a good thing.

Stan might want to substitue a bran muffin for the crispy creams. They should get this guy for the weight watchers meal commercials, He would be a bigger contrast than the before and after Golic commercial.

Good to know SVG is hard at work trying to figure out what to do with the bench players.

Isn't it like 12 days till the Playoffs? Oh well, he and Otis know what's what.
I want the Sixers!

Hmmm, you would think that he (SVG) would know his rotations by now.

And Pietrus needs to get with the program and stop being hurt. I think the sat the other day because he isn't shooting well. But that goes back to the wrist injury. It wasn't because of his knee like the paper said.

You're a fool, get outta here.

And the rest of the season doesn't matter. SVG should rest the starters the rest of the way. We need to have our guys rested enough for a title run, not running out of gas by the 2nd round.

Sure 60 wins is nice, but its not really that important when you think about the grand scheme of things.

When you are 1 game behind homecourt through the 2nd round..yes every game DOES matter...Your Magic didn't win IN Detroit last year..remember???

It goes to show you how ignorant Orlando sports fans are...just don't get dumber than you...and the Rest of the Orlando Fan Base..

Oh Hick, can wait for the Magic to play against your Pistons.

I hope that you have the guts to show up and post when we finally kick your butt.

Yeah this guy is pretty dumb. Not certain he is a pistons fan, but I have seen him in here before. I am with you though, I think I want to face the Pistons now. I know people will think it is crazy, but I have enough confidence the magic can finally win it out.

So pal, which team do you pull for? You talk alot of crap, and I would love to learn from your ever so enlightening ideas and thoughts of what is truly right about the NBA ........
FYI- The magic are only 3 games behind from Home to Road records. Rest, and a good final schedule are important at the same time. That's why the Magic are going for both.

And stop acting like you know a single thing about sports, and the Orlando fan base. But I guess you sure can talk a big game through a keyboard.....

There is just something very comical to me about a person from a town called "Hicksville" calling people ignorant. Lol You're right my hickish friend.. We didn't win in blo-town last year. Key words, in case reading comp isn't taught in your Hicksville school, LAST YEAR. Clean the mud outa your ears and turn on ESPN every once in a while. This is a Magic team that just detroyed the NBA title favorite Cavs on national TV en rout to winning the season series against them as well as swept the season series with the Lakers. It's 2009 pal and this is a much better Orlando team. I say bring on the Pistons!!

you know i was thinking about the off-season because you know i was bored because i wanted the playoffs to start. anyway i was wondering what would happen if gortat decided to bolt to another team such as minnesota or okc where he could get more money and more playing time. then i remembered the infamous fran vazquez and decided to see how he was doing. turns out his contract is expired after this year. if you want to learn more about how he has been doing he is having a great year and you can check this link for more evidence. althouugh i must say that i would much prefer marcin gortat to stay but this would not be a bad second option.

ithink our lineup would look like this next year if all of this were to happen:
pg-jameer, rafer
sg-courtney, jj
sf-michael, hedo
pf-rashard, fran
c-dwight, tony
go magic!!!!!!

You are talking about last year buddy... Last year was step 4 in the grand scheme of things...

Step 1: Draft awesome franchise player (Dwight) check

Step 2: get rid of dead weight (Tmac, Francis) check

Step 3: Build team around Franchise player by:
draft (CLee, Gortat sort of... drafted by Phoenix traded to Orlando), trade for (Battie, Alston) and or sign some role players (Johnson) and scorers (Hedo and Rashard) and coach that will fit around franchise player... check and a half....

Step 4: Get franchise player and core members of team some playoff experience... check

Step 5: this years advancement to ????? championship????? The finals???? ECF????? we will see!

Stay tuned folks... This offseason will be special...
