I like Bosh but Lew fits way better in this system with his 3 pt range. I tend to like Sweet Lew more than Bosh for our team.

What is great is Orlando is losing impact players in Hedo, Gortat, Lee, Alston and so far you have only got one other player in VC. I am loving seeing all this unfold I can't wait to see what other players you give up that took you to the Championship game last year. Cavs have only gave up Wallace, Wally, Wright, Sasha and those players were not an impact and some hardly ever played. Its fun to see Orlando make some moves especially when they mix up the team that they took to the finals and won the eastern conferance with. Orlando might add one more vet but then you are stuck to at least 2011 with all these huge contracts your sitting on.
Its ok. We will still stomp the cavs ass again next year, just like always.

Not unless you are willing to change your style of play. Until Dwight develops a post move, it's all about spreading the floor.

Blazers are going to. The coach and Hedo are having dinner tonight. The real question is can some Magic fans crash the dinner party!!

Yeah posted this in today's other article. If Houston is going after Gortat, are they going to be able to resign Artest? And if they aren't we could probably offer Artest the same amount of money we offered Hedo the first time. Artest only made around 7 mil, and 8.75 mil would be a raise for sure. Maybe do some kind of sign and trade for Gortat since Gortat is gone too.
Like Otis and everyone has said; we aren't done that's for sure.

I like lewis too, but no one and i do mean no one, is going to take on rashard lewis's not expiring anytime soon contract. He makes too much money. Only reason we did it with vince is because its for only 2 years. Id love to see bosh here, but its not happening.

I can understand why a lot of people actually like Turk, but these are the same people who haven't watched many or all of the Magic games as I have. When you do, or if you have, then I'm sure you've noticed the things that I have noticed, to which I've explained over and over again so I'm not going to repeat it.
Needless to say, Hedo does things that drive me and many other Magic fans insane. I can't/won't let it go, because he is the one doing it and it's on purpose. It's just the type of player he is and/or the type of basketball IQ he has, which is close to little or none. The Magic weren’t a very smart/mental tough basketball team last year and Hedo was a huge portion of that problem. So when he leaves, I would like to think that this team will get smart with the on the court decisions. Of course time will tell on that part, but no matter how you slice it, Vince Carter is an upgrade over Turk.
Totally agree with you. Turk has made some great winning shots for Orlando, but at the same time it was some of his bone headed plays that put the Magic in a position for the last minute shot after squandered leads. I would like to re-sign him, but not at 10 mil. I say sign Wallace (still spreads the floor + rebounds/defends) and move lewis to his natural 3. The rest of the roster can be spent on servicable league minimum guys, because SVG doesn't play the bench much anyway.

Yea Gortat is most definitely going to leave Orlando. If I was him I would go too. He has a very good opportunity to start and get double the minutes he has been getting with the Magic.

As for Turk, he said he's willing to sign with the Magic if it wasn't too less. Maybe Magic low balled him on the first offer. Anyway Turk is going to leave Magic.

I tell you what??
If Rasheed Wallace ends up in Boston, that would be a huge block for us especially if KG comes back 100%.

That would be a scary lineup right there with Pierce/Rallen/KG/RAsheed.
Jeez...

Nice try, you are not very smart, are you. All those guys you mentioned hurt the magic, they did not help. Lee was the exception, but with VC
the Magic are twice as good as last season. Not good for you or your team dude. If the magic can sign a big man like sheed, you might as well not even show up, your team is outmatched.
Way to go Otis!
