    The guy is real old.He should be like Kareem, playing with a bunch of younger All-stars. Instead he has played with scrubs for the last 5 years, plus oft injured Love and Kyrie.

    He should have stayed in college 5 years.

    I know you are talking nba level skills, but I watched every game since he came back. The kid hit the 3, pull up shots and mid range jumpers with nothing but net.He really does look like Barkley. The comparison is justified. I have to remind the youngsters on the forum, Barkley was amazing, he was a unicorn. Don't hold it against him having no championships. He was top 5 in my lifetime and probably my favorite player to watch.

    Last years draft was by far the most painful. Washington really should have won that last game. Also for most of the year it really seemed like Doncic and Young would go top 3. I know things changed a bit before the draft, but seeing them both fall to where we should be picking broke my heart. I was on Trea but my fallback was Doncic and look how good both have become.

    This is always a funny narrative with Weham, it never gets old. Speaking of Gm's it clear to me with this years NFL free agency, some general managers are just bad. Just because you get paid well to do a job does not mean you know what your doing.Some of these guys are truly awful.The NBA is full of the same kind of gm's. So many head scratching moves that look bad before the ink is even dry!

    Why is nobody talking about McW? I was reading about him on another Magic forum. Someone reminded me he had a bunch of shoulder problems. It wasn't just his inefficiency, turnovers or work ethic that derailed his career. Poor guy had big time shoulder injuries after that first year. Sounds familiar, hoping that doesn't continue with another former Sixer. MCW Fun Fact: Played his first career NBA game against the James/Wade/Bosh Heat and had 22 points, 7 rebounds, 12 assists and 9 steals in a win.

    This can't be true. I'm sure the Magic had some huge lead bigger then this that they blew this season. At least it feels that way. LOL!!! Also Zion is a beast. Just goes to show how much the NBA has changed. 25 years ago this guy is Shaq, unquestionably number 1. No doubters, future HOF from the moment he enters the draft. Now, he will still go number one but there will be a million articles explaining why he won't work in today's NBA. Can't shoot the three!!!!!!

    Yes in defense of our front office, most of the insider trade offers i have heard the last two years have been horrible. What i mean is the players rumored coming back to use have been awful. I suspect that teams have not bargained with us in good faith. So our new front office has turned down some really bad trades, which is good. Hopefully now teams will realize the Magic are not pushovers and we can be in on some mutually benificial trades.

    Honestly, i think there were moves to be made and we just didn't do it. Getting a little excited about the playoffs was fun but i'm still pissed they decided to basically keep the same team this year. And the Fultz situation is a little bit of a nightmare. Even if he comes back at 80% of what he is supposed to be, he's a rookie.Our front office has some really big decisions this summer. We need the right pieces somehow, someway.

    The wizards moved Otto Porter.

    Was busy but watching now, it's obvious Isaac has the highest ceiling of anyone on the Magic.

    Yup, the Nets have Dinwiddie,Lavert and Russell as a guard rotation moving forward. This is the reason i thought we had a chance with Russell in December. Dinwiddie and Lavert were balling and he signed that great contract. In hindsight no way they would have traded him. If the Nets can't get Durant or Kawhi, i expect them to go hard at either Tobias or Middleton.
