If the Magic don't sign Hedo, I'm jumping off the 55 West roof. There.

Come on Turk. STAY HERE! Your goofy personality wouldn't fit with any other team like it does with the loosy goosy players on the Magic. Just take a little less, stay here and win some rings in Orlando.

and this is a big reason why I don't like the Magic........

"If the Price is Right" he will stay in Orlando. "What is best for his family". HELLO !! Turko-whatzhis name was making $6 million PER YEAR ! How much more does his family NEED ?!?!

Why not stay in Orlando because you love the city, the local fans who poured out to cheer for you and the Orlando Magic ?

Greed kills sports and in many cases kills people.

Pay the luxury tax and keep Turkoglu. He's worth it.

WTF?
Who cares?
They had their chance. They got farther than they should have and then got their clocks cleaned by LA.
Stay, go, milk the city and taxpayers for more money for another arena. Who cares?

I hope he stays, but seriously - based on his statements you'd think he and his family were going to be homeless if he doesn't get more money.

As I said yesterday the Green light is on...Sorry Aron and the rest. We havin' Turkish delight next season and it can be a good thing for the team. Winning a Championship or even the EC will be a push if we don't play a whole lot more consistently. At least Hedo is a known quantity for better or for worse. It's up to the owners and the GM to make the deal it seems they want it. We could do a whole lot worse and it is a business. Can't hold it against Hedo.

I agree. I wish these sports stars would for once realize how overpaid they really are. They wouldn't know how to live on less than $30,000 a year like a lot of people do, including the workers that serve them. I'm sick of GREED. Love the game, the City and the folks who've supported you! Is that so hard?

Basketball, like all professional sports, is first and foremost a business. I'm sure you would be happy to make $6 million a year, but if you had the opportunity to make $10 million wouldn't you jump at it?

Turkoglu is just being a good business owner, the owner of Turkoglu, Inc. Ask yourself, if he had torn up his knee in the last game, or his skills were gone, would the Magic pay him a decent salary out of "loyalty"? Nope, and they shouldn't. This is a business transaction and nothing more.

Hmmm, not sure why they turned the word "knee" into "****" in the previous post.

Sure he wants to stay, that is why his play was so sterling during the finals. Typical professional athlete, give me more money.

Hmmm, really confused as to why they turned the joint halfway down your leg to "****" in two previous posts.
