    This. It hurts just reading it :(

    I'd take it. Would really hand the keys over to AG with Wes being a great catch and shoot, and Noel being a defensive specialist. It may not be equal value because of Fournier (Vuc has barely any value, no one wants slow bigs that can't play D). I'm really over Vuc and Fournier, the latter more so. Always loved Noel. I remember in NBA 2K12 (I think) I played a long association mode with the Magic (as I do every year). Someone made a realistic draft class for the following season and put it into the game. We ended up getting the number 1 or 2 pick and I took Noel and developed him into a beast over the next few years, since then I've always liked the guy (I had him into about year 3 in-game before he was even drafted into the NBA).

    I'm sick of Fournier. At the time of the decision to trade Oladipo and keep Fournier I was happy based on the circumstances (Oladipo about to get a massive pay day and knowing we could sign Fournier for less, plus the fact the team needed shooting and Oladipo struggled there). But now with hindsight I would have loved to have kept Oladipo with his much improved 3 ball and general play. That's a fantasy land and there's no going back, but right now I'm just sick of Fournier, I hate his on court demeanor, bad body language and comments in interviews. I hate how he yells for a foul on every drive and complains hysterically with every foul against him. Having said all that I just can't see a way we can get better and get rid of him. Vuch I'm getting sick of having as our starting center and offensive focal point. I'd be happy to have him on the team if he was just sat down and told that the league has gone against the type of player he is and he will be best suited as the first player off the bench. He'd probably not be ok with that so then I'd prefer to just trade him and make it someone else's problem (starting a player that just doesn't fit in today's NBA. Other positions I think you can get away with it more but the center position I just don't think so).
  5. Orlando Magic @ Denver Nuggets

    Cheers. They surely have too much of an advantage in these situations. But I guess it wouldn't be fair to give them 0 home games against teams on a back to back, because if every other team in the league has say 4 of them, then it's not fair for them to have 0. All teams have an advantage at home against teams that are on a back to back (unless the home team is also on a back to back), so it's not fair to give some teams these games and others none. I'm sure the NBA geniuses running the schedule could work out something a little more fair though.
  6. Orlando Magic @ Denver Nuggets

    Does anyone know the record that Denver has at home when playing against teams that are on a 2nd night of a back to back? I just don't understand how the NBA can schedule a team there, especially since they reduced the amount of back to backs teams have.

    Porzingis ruled out.
  8. Official Game Thread: Knicks at Magic

    Payton starting, great news.
  9. Magic vs Celtics

    We're gonna have a hard time the next few without Payton or Augustine, need one of them back desperately. I can see Kyrie dropping 40 tonight, just hoping we can shoot well and if we do we can still overcome a big game from him. Ross is very important tonight I think, if he can get out of his shooting slump he can have a really big one, he's due.

    Yeah I think he's pretty much un-tradeable at the moment. He was given a big contract for two skills, defence/rim protection and rebounding. He would work well with some of our lineups if he did that at the elite level he performed them in the finals series against the Cavs and in other stretches when given time at Toronto. Where is that Biyombo? Did he dissapear when given the money? (I never pegged him as someone that would happen to.. Is it too much focus on other areas like charity etc? (not that that work isn't amazing))
  11. Official Game Thread : Magic vs Nets Part 2

    Haha, yeah that would be good.
  12. Official Game Thread : Magic vs Nets Part 2

    Mario has looked so bad in some plays, like amateur league stuff. I think his only shot at being a legit NBA player is to be just a catch and shoot player on offense. He has to work on his jumper, if he can't get his non-contested catch and shoot 3's to 40%+ he is useless in today's NBA. He needs to work on running around screens and getting open etc (obviously plays have to be run for this to be the case, but I think that's his chance at being a long term NBA player).

    Lol Mauro starting to look like EP If Embiid and Simmons stay fit this season they will be good. If Fultz blends into the team quickly I can see them being 9 games better than us.
  14. 2017 Official Offseason Thread

    Think they gave up too much, especially with that pick thrown in. Imagine if Kyrie walks after the 2 years as well. Cavs probably gotta move Love or TT? If Crowder starts at SF, James PF, Love will have to play center or be moved. Unless they have plans to bring Crowder off the bench.

    Ah, I was unaware. So was it a fake account?
