if Dwight ever develops a low post game then the Magic will be #1

until he does, they will not be the best east team

He probably will most likely. I mean he already gets paid millions and is in the NBA; what else are you going to do? Might as well develop a post game. Got nothing better to do so might as well. :lol:

They are a threat, but I never really liked the makeup of their team. One monster in the center, and 4 guys who settle for perimeter shots all the time.

Meh, I was thinking of including a trade proposal in my article that would bag them a decent interior player. I mean, Hedo and Turkoglu are very good because they really open up space for Dwight with their 3 point shooting ability. However, as I mentioned in the article, they aren't really great rebounders or good in the low post.

Maybe the Magic could look at trading Rashard.

All comments, negative or positive, are extremely welcome.

I didn't know Hedo Turkoglu could divide himself into two. :lol:

Yes he could, because he's THAT good.

:lol:

I meant Hedo and Rashard. They should consider trading R-Lewis.

Haha yeh, I'm just trying to keep this thread alive so everyone can read it. :beers: But I always thought Rashard always got overpaid anyway for what he brings to the table. :bow:

:lol:, thanks man.

Rashard is getting $16,447,871 this season for what will probably be a 16 and 5 season. Those 16 points will most likely come from outside of the paint as well. I think it's safe to say that he is getting paid more than he deserves. His contract lasts for 5 years as well so it's not like they can have him off of the books any time soon. I think the Magic should look at trading him. Plus, Hedo wants a new contract at the end of the year, so they will have to pay Hedo good money as well.

No. Orlando is basically Dwight + a bunch of shooters...

Jumpshooting teams doesn't go far during the playoffs...

That's funny because I'd call the Lakers a jump shooting team.

Do you remember the 40 something 3 point attempts against Denver?

Well exacty, we went to the Finals settling for Jumpshots instead of taking it inside.

There's no evidence that jumpshooting teams can't make it deep into the playoffs. The Magic play in the EAST as well.

Of course, I do believe we will be more physical now that Bynum is back.

Oh well, for us, one year of falling short by 2 games, the inexperienced should be more experienced by now.
