Thats very true...I thought i was the only who noticed. The first game Arroyo had here in a Magic jersey, the arena was sold out.

<quoted text>give gordon a break he lost his coach and shortly after injures his wrist and still played every game of the season and he still managed to average 20 points a game and 10 fta per game on an 80% clip. not that i am trying to belittle what dj white did for that team because he was amazing. i am just worried that his defense will limit his potential to a leon powe type player or even worse wayne symien(although that is not likely). i would prefer someoone who wouldn't need any plays run for him to be effective(we have dwight for that and sometimes tony). i would prefer joey dorsey over dj white and even dj white. would you want someone like leon powe or ben wallace with dwight. just my thoughts.
DJ white is very similar to Jason Maxiell, an undersized PF but makes up for it with long arms and athletic ability. He has range a good work ethic, and doesnt mind doing the dirty work. All the big names seem to overshadow these type of players and the teams that sleep on guys like DJ white are the ones that look dumb. I would love to have White here with an early 2nd rd pick from Portland or Seattle.

Dorsey = Bo Outlaw, I know he wants to be like Ben Wallace but I do not see that happening. White is more versatile with his offensive ability.

Its not only that giving him a contract is more cheaper and he is a natural PG he doesnt make to many points but he makes fantastic assists

If the Magic Pick a PF in the first round Preferably Speights or Dorsey even White. Then We should go after Jamont Gordon in the second round, Lester Hudson. Trade Arroyo to the knicks for David lee. Also the most important move of all is getting Corey Magette. Turk at PG, Magette SG, PF(Speights/ Dorsey / Lee) Lewis and Cook at SF and Superman. Battie back up Dwight. Nelson Back up Turk. Reddick back up Magette.
Arroyo for lee? u crazy. Check...Arroyo and Reddick for michael redd.

Angel, the most any player could have won coming out this year is 4 championships. No one has done that lately. Noah and Horford won 2. There are 12 players on a team. So that means there are thousands of players (over 300 college teams) that haven't won anything. This is how absurd your argument is. Might sound good to YOU, but that means you did't think about what you said. I can recite for you hundreds of superstars that NEVER won a championship. You must be kid not thinking things through.

If Orlando cannot land on Speights then we should think about trading up with seatle or the knicks for their pick. I would trade Arroyo, Reddick rights to FranVasquez and the 22 pick. If we can land on Mayo he could play PG for us. Try to get Magette for MLE. In the second round draft White, hendrix or dorsey. It would probably be a reach to get Billups or Davis. I would try to trade for Monta ellis. Worse come to worse stick Turk or JJ at the point if Dooling does not come back. Draft CDR at 22 and Priority have to get Magette.
