Anybody racist at all, to whites or ricans, whoever, can go Fu*k themselves. Yea, Carlos Arroyo couldn't be great for Orlando, doesn't mean you lower than scum and dirt ppl have to be racist about it, just say he sucks as a player, done. Just jealous some hispanics are actually growing influence in Orlando and making successful business? Haha, wait a decade or more, we'll literaly have spanish as a second official language and then they'll be telling you to learn to speak our language too.

Back to the topic... Hoopsworld.com says the Dooling deal will be done today and Otis has already offered the trade exeption they get from Dooling to them for Crittenton. MEM is not as inclined to take just a trade exception however, so talks are still ongoing.
NJ is looking to rid Marcus Williams and a PF.. Could be of interest to us?

RL is in his prime and will be incredible until the end of Dwight Howard's contract for sure. And then probably still play great after that if we still have Howard re-extended. So now you only have AJ and TB? Two veterans... who actually add some toughness and experience to us.. sorry and kindly, you don't have any valid point.

We PRs don’t care about the Magic. We are fan of Carlos Arroyo. I am sure if the Magic have a bad year the people that call themselves “Magic Fans” don’t go to support the team. But if Arroyo is on the team and because we are true fans, we are going to follow him. So my point is that it is a bad management decision doesn’t sign Arroyo.

You don't speak for any PRs. Although many are tue fans of Arroyo, many are true fans of teams instead like ORL or MIA. I am one for ORL always been and always be. "Heart and Hustle" We need Darrell Armstrong back!

Yeah, and your point is? RL really added nothing last season, after recieving big bucks. He has been in the league along time and is way over his prime. AJ might be able to bring 12 to 15 minutes of toughness and the remainder of minutes or excuse me "experience" riding the bench soiling towels. And what about all the toughness and experience TB brought to this team last year and will bring the same this season. Man I can barely hold back the excitement of all the "HEART AND HUSTLE" of just TB much less the rest of this geriatic ward(I mean team).
Ohhhh yeah,,,your point was what now?

ExMagicFan, The Magic are so happy to be getting rid of Arroyo and his worthless fans, such as yourself. What do you Ricans have going for you anyway? A third string PG and Ricky Martin. WOW! Bunch of lazy burdens on society. Go back to your overcrowded, crime-filled, polluted island and stick it up your ****!
You don't know anything about PR, you must be an ignorant from who knows where...

Their lies your problem; you are complacent with being lame and lackluster, hell you even admit the Magic are as well. Their is no wonder why you are up Otis' back side, you both have always played small and thought of what it could be down the road.
Play big today and always, and bring the championship to ORLANDO, not to OTIS.

The management can't let a section of the fan base (that doesn't even like the Magic anyway) dictate business decisions. If Arroyo leaves and you don't follow the Magic anymore, I'm sure we will struggle on somehow without you.

Sure when teams win it's mostly because of thier starpower. But when you're at the championships, boht teams have that. So then it's who's smaller, role-players take the edge; and that's called playing small. Something every championship team had to do well and what Otis is doing now. I don't even consider Pietrus acquisition to be small time, Everyone will see when he starts dominating defensively and kicking up his offense on top of that..

Bogans for Crittenden straight up no draft picks. at most a 2nd rounder.
If not then we move on and wait until something comes up.

Mo evans is going to sign with Golden state.

Dwight Howard aka Superman aka the best center in basketball brings the people to the arena. Not Arroyo. He might fill a small portion of the stands, but it's dwight who fills them. 52 wins and 2nd round of the playoffs help bring in a crowd as well. Arroyo has very little to do with the magic's attendance...VERY LITTLE.

For those who threw the Marcus Williams pick-up out there..well that's gone now. And guess where he went, the Warriors. And for what? A future 1st round pick. Otis, you seriously couldn't put that together?!? Granted he's not the best PG out there but good enough to be the back-up we were looking for.

TB and RL are not extremely youthful.Talk about credibility,, you sound as if you are cloned from the SHOT DOCTOR.
Wow you have a brain (round of applause). Someone buy this guy a happy meal. You said Otis keeps signing old players. So I was referring to this year trades, which the only "old" player we signed is Anthony Johnson. So what now? We're not suppose to have veterans on the team? So then I asked who else were you talking about? Try english 1 on 1, and get up on your reading comprehension. You trying to make points with me and other posters as well and sound like an id1ot. So next time you click the post comment button, make sure you reread what you're trying say tough guy.

Exactly. I know that there are some Puerto Rican fans who come because of Arroyo, but he's not the main draw.

Forrest you will figure it out one day, it will come to you about the same time the "english 1 on 1" you speak of.
Please teachers do not teach to the FCAT, Forrest will never learn. He will always be a follower and worship at the alter of the OTIS.

whats the ??? for? What I was saying was,,there are not too many trade options when it comes to Rashard. Not too many players can match his salary. The players that can,,no team will trade those players for Rashard. Not saying it is impossible to trade the dude, just would be hard.
I dont think trading him is or should be in our plans, I was responding to another post.
actually there is but the teams that would trade for him would loose more. not many are to crazy or keen on loosing 2 good players for a sf that can drill the 3 pt and is a little limited on defense. on that asspect your right but the whole pres thing at the end im straching my head about.
