I deserve more $$$ than Turk...I had a bunch less turnovers and I actually did play defense.
I'm gonna get close to $4 million this year and hopefully I wont have to do very much to earn it.
If Turk goes I may have to play more and still make the same amount of money. That doesnt sound fair, ya think?

Maybe if you stupid fans all line up and promise to shine his knob and hand over the rest of your paychecks then Turk will give you a facial before earning another several MILLION dollars to play a game at your expense.
Do I smell class envy? I really feel sorry for you.

hey, nurse, you idiot, its all relative, money equals power and respect in the nba, if a guy is making 6, they can easily bench him for a fucker like grant hill even though turk was always better. with a 10 million dollar contract he will always be secure because the magic will always want to make sure their investment pans out, it also makes you less likely to be traded, DUH

Give me a break, he's not that good. OK, maybe 18 to 20 points on a great night, but what about the 5 or 6 turnovers? The great nights are few and far between, the turnovers are every night. It's a business, get someone better for less money.

Sign Turk and the Gortat......trade Reddick for second round draft choices...let Anthony Johnson go.

Folks, the Magic were ahead of schedule this year, which should have been Cleveland's chance or a Celtics repeat.

Next year with a healthy Nelson, lest we forget how good the Magic were prior to his injury, this team is capable of 65 wins. Deep breath, 1995/96 is not going to be repeated.

This has been talked about ALL SEASON... where have YOU been?
Yeah I know it's a no duh type of statement, but I found it ironic that the very night the last game of the season was played, Hedo had the gull to even acknowledge Jon Barry's comments.

We don't have a sales tax and we have a very low state tax becuase we don't blow our taxpayer money on millionaires or their useless arenas. But thanks for playing, retard!
We didn't either. We are getting the tourists to pay for it!

Give him whatever he wants and then divide it by four. Normally the only quarter he actually plays BB is the fourth quarter. The rest of the time he sleepwalks and turns the ball over.
Trust me Gary, I know. I've been busting Hedo's B@@@llsss all season long. Hedo the Horrible. LOL

I want to thank many comment writers for being so stupid. No you will not get a job writing for David Letterman. Even though negative Mike Bianchi should be fired by the Sentinel, you negative writers about the Magic, salaries and Orlando will not get his job. As a season ticket holder Turk is over rated. On offense if a rebound falls into his hands fine but he never moves to block out and get a rebound. Then he makes stupid very weak passes for turnovers. Van Gundy talked during preseason about bringing it down quickly and getting into a transition game. Turk had a turnover in the playoffs when he didn't past half court in 8 seconds. Then when he gets the ball he stands there and when he gets moving he can go inside and miss layups. Yes he has good points but if you take a Steinbrenner approach can we get someone better for similar money. Its a business for Turk and the team.

Again greg, CHRIS BOSH MAKES 14mill/yr. So does odom. There is no feasible way to have either of them on our roster, so why even make that statement? Reality, we have 10mill, we need to sign or replace hedo for that. All of you people, quit throwing random names here that you pull out of your arses unless you have a way of justifying those names with a way to make their contracts work.

He avgd 19ppg reg seas and just under 18ppg postseason. So much for only doing this on great nights that are few and far between. He does this on a consistent basis, look at his averages. As far as getting better for less, thats the gameplan for every team isnt it? Do you have any useful info to contribute here, maybe a better player that we could sign for less, or are you just making random comments from thin air???

JJ is overrated!!! He USED to be good in college but NBA is a whole diff ballgame. He should watch his own instructional video that he made for some tips. Trade JJ, lou, Johnson and those sitting on the bench that NEVER plays and keep HEDO :)

GREED is good! Pay them what they deserve. This whole "hate the rich" mentality is sick! Get off your azz and invent something, write a book, perfect your own golf swing. These guys have worked hard to play at this level as have anyone else whose reached some level of success. You people who sit around complaining about how much other people are paid need to focus on your own life and figure out how to make your own dreams come true!

<quoted text>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?

I would like to say for who ever reads this that my opinion is just one of so many i know but i think Hedo Turkoglu is one of the best players in the league. I enjoy watching him play for the magic and would be very sad to see him go. I feel as even though we don't know each other that he is my friend in a way. Being that he is on the team i have grown up loving he is on my or as you could say our side. So Hedo if you can here me please stay! You are part of us! LIFE IS GOOD IN THE SUNSHINE STATE. I know your looking out for your best interest and i understand that. I feel we should take the appropriate measures to make you happy. I know we brought in some extra change with the playoffs. I do believe you helped out with getting us there as well. So i would say you earned it. Sighing off.... Brandon Peterson..... Hala back....... later.....
