Jimbo, Hedo did not get this time to the finals, he was a piece, but the main piece was Dwight, demanding double teams and freeing up the other Magic players. And how many games did Hedo disappear in? Yes, he had a few shining moments, a couple of those on nights when he was 1-11. If he had made more shots, than he wouldnt need to make a heroic shot at the end. Lets look at some game stats of him in the playoffs.If this trade means they can;r re-sign Hedo (and it likely does) then it s*cks. Who's the forward next to Rashard? Hedo got this team to the Finals. it'll never get back without him. Typical Orlando. Team is so close to winning a championship and knucklehead GM decides it needs a major overhaul. I can already see lotsa empty seats in that new arena. Magic have a soft fan base.
In 4 out of 6 games with Philly, he went 2-8, 3-10, 2-12 and 3-14. Awfully bad numbers.
against boston, he had games of 6-16, 4-14 and 3-13.
Against cleveland, he had games of 4-11, 1-11 and 3-12.
He also averaged almost 3 to's a game. Yes he is a good player, but not a great player, and not worth $10+ a year for any length of time. That money would be better spent on depth.
