    Good move here to increase attractability of a superstar free agent. What I have read indicates to me that our FO's plan (and I like it) for free agency acquisition will not be next summer but the following summer. Seems to work out better financially and maybe even competition wise. Next summer both Philly and the Lakers and I am sure will have max money that will attract the top FA's before we are looked at. In addition I think it will take a couple of years with B.I.G. playing together to make us look like a possible contender. And maybe we will add another piece to the puzzle in next year's draft. So I am good for the summer of 2020 with regards to FA. I think it sets up better to get a superstar. Kemba Walker would be the one guy I would think about getting next year, if possible. Other than that I wait.

    Finally! I love computers and hate computers. Had to do a full restore mid August and could not access my favorite site until today. Missed a month's worth of info. HP laptop and their help desk was a joke trying to fix it. At one point they had me take a screen picture and send it to them. Then said we give up and take it somewhere. I took out the battery and hit one button and the computer came right back up. Taken a month to fix everything. Thank God it is during the slowest part of the NBA season. Now I am back. Halleluyeh! Will take a while to catch up. Getting ready for training camp. Basketball Insiders preview pretty much has us as 4th (one guy had us third echoing Clifford's "why not us" motto) with lots of good for the future. Anyway time to get back to work reading posts.

    I think if we are competitive and actually in a playoff race our players, doctors and FO will want the players on the floor. The minor dings and sprains do not sideline players as much because of what is at stake. That is the competitive juices flowing. . Obviously major injuries will stop everyone. I like our chances if our guys stay relatively healthy

    Iwundu was a project from the beginning and played point forward in college. I always thought we would not see what we really had until year 3 and hoped he could be a facilitator/ creator type player. My hope is we try continue to develop him and give him a chance. Unfortunately our track record to do that is not very good.

    That is a "plus" comment as far as I am concerned. If we stay major injury free (there will always be some but no season ending type) and if Bamba lasts the entire year like Tatum did (improbable as that seems) we could be that "why not us" team that Clifford discussed. This is a more unlikely scenario but not out of the question.

    Thanks. Yeah, integrity way undervalued in today's society. Looking yourself in the mirror at the end of the day and honestly evaluating whether you treated everyone with respect, honesty, and integrity is a good barometer for life. Overall, I appreciate this board for it's loaded with passionate Magic fans that treat each other respectfully. Strong opinions for sure but that is what makes it lively. Looking forward to an interesting, hopefully "why not us", season.

    It was not me. I did not even know we could. I assume you upvote with the plus sign? I will let others downvote since I have no idea how to do that.

    What a great story. The human side of a game we love. If someone has a Magic connection they should get this story to them. Magic should "give" HeHateMe a Bamba jersey. And I doubt HeHateMe would think that but I do. THat is how you take care of fans.

    SAC = Boston. Celts get the better of a #1 only protected Sacramento or Philly pick. I think it will be the SAC pick. It is why every lottery team needs to let SAC win.

    Probably not but hopefully soon.

    Definition of insanity......doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. I want wins. Time for Isaac at 3.

    Weltman got out at the right time. Raptors=lottery bound even with money. Long rebuild. Who wants to go to Canada.

    You got it!

    That is the problem!
