    Conley is certainly a better option as a starting point guard than DJ. DJ can go back to being a solid backup. MC is also a solid defender. He will make the guys around him better. As for toughness you know I agree with you there. We could use a guy who isn't afraid to drop the hammer down on someone. Unfortunately it seems as though the Magic don't really prefer to have those kind of players on their roster. It's like a softball team I played on not too long ago. I was on first base when a guy hit one into the gap in right center field. I tried to score all the way from first base as the throw was coming home. The ball got to the catcher and he was completely blocking the plate. So I knocked him on his keyster and jarred the ball out. I was safe. When I returned to my dugout one of the guys on the team said "We don't play that way here". I said no worries as I grabbed my glove and took off. Even the catcher said "good play man" as I helped him up and made sure he was ok. It was a good clean hard nosed play. It is funny how some guys/teams/organizations don't go for that even when it is clean.

    How is a high character guy (Conley) going to help the Magic win games. Our entire roster is made up of high character guys (choir boys). We need toughness on this team. Our players are afraid to put a body on someone. Either that or they are afraid to take it strong to the hole to get to the free throw line. Most of the time when Fournier drives to the basket, he misses a simple layup.

    Woah dude!!! Crunch time scoring, really? Best in the league u say? This I seriously have issues with. Since u have all the stats what is his usage % in these crunch time minutes. My guess higher than Hardens.

    This makes a lot of sense to me. Try to get something for Ross and Vuc so they do not walk away for nothing. If nothing materializes on the trade side of things I hope we offer one year deals (you will overpay on one year deals) to them. That is the new NBA so it gives cap flexibility when needed.

    Not a word from Gordon after the game. Interesting. Nobody asked how he felt out there tonight ?

    Idk why this got downvoted. Reality is hard for some people to see I guess. I don’t think we have to trade Ross but since he’s probably our most appealing player (next to Vuch) it makes sense. Someone had a great comment in the game-thread about how the nets haven’t had a first round pick in a decade yet their rebuild went bettter than ours. I’m not pushing to tank. I am however pushing to trade what pieces we do have that might be able to net us good young talent or create a more flexible roster and let our lottery picks run the show more. If those guys can win us games great.

    If this is true then that is very reckless and incompetent from Indiana’s staff. Hope the injury isn’t too evasive and Vic can fully heal.

    When Gordon went back into the game with 21 seconds left he went in for Augustin. For the first 20 games this year fournier was one of the best players in the league in crunch time scoring and it's killed any chance at him not being in there at the end until he screws up enough I guess.

    Bull...final minutes was DJ Fournier Ross Isaac Vuch. Fournier deserved to be in? I saw the last two-three minutes am I missing something?

    We couldn't sub him in earlier. When he did go in he went in for Augustin. Isaac deserved the closing minutes tonight. He earned them.

    So he shouldn't of been playing or he should of been subbed in sooner. Again if he was good enough to go because he is our best defender put his ass in sooner. Not being in rhythm is one thing but not 100% and then to flip flop makes no sense. It's a panic move. It's bad coaching. It's contradicting. If Gordon wants to go you either ride with him or you don't. You most certainly don't say hey you look like **** so we are taking you out and then say are hurt but uuuhhh go in real quick.

    Because he's a better defender than Augustin. We brought Bamba in for vucevic too after he was sitting for an extended period. Clifford said in his post game that they weren't going to give him his regular minutes because he wasn't 100% and he didn't look like he was in his rhythm when he did play at either end.

    Only because he is our best defender and one of the best in the entire league. But I hear you totally

    Conley 31 points tonight on 10/17 shooting.

    Magic @ Nets - Wednesday, January 23 @ 7:30 PM

    I get your point but he is hurt or he isn't. You can't sit him for an extended time because he isn't right and think putting him in for one play benefits you. He isn't right then why have the confidence in one play?

    Realistically it is going to probably take around 40 wins to get into the playoffs. The Magic would have to finish the season with a 20-14 record to accomplish that. Have quite a few teams with losing records left on the schedule. However we are a losing team record wise also. It is going to take some doing to make it. Hopefully a trade is made to put us over the top. Just hope it isn't too late by then.
