    I hear you, EF is a tough call for his salary, but I do think he is better then he gets credit for; probably a 3rd option on a good team; a little overpaid, but that was the market at the time.

    We got to give Weltmen and company a chance, I remember Alex saying he is no longer in basketball personnel decisions, let’s see what happens and if the collaboration of the Devos family on these decisions keeps producing the same type of product, it’s time for new ownership. I don’t know about you, but this is my last run before I change the channel.

    I definitely think our top priority is going for a point guard. Unless we can pull a trade and picks like when we acquired Penny Hardaway for Chris Webber and picks.

    I’m all for trading Payton. He drives me crazy with his inconsistency; and this hair, I’m sorry and let me preface this that I’m all in for individuality, but I really believe this effects his game. This awning he showcases is constantly bobbing up and down as I watch him move as well as it looks as if it disrupts his shooting motion. Maybe we should start a petition for a haircut. I really like the guy as he seems like a nice shy kind of country boy. I know he’s from Louisiana, but you get the idea. He has really regressed from the eye test perspective. Lots of problems in the Magic Kingdom. On another note, I do think we have the best infrastructure at any point in our history with Lakeland Magic and the coaching staff ect. Unfortunately this is all going to take time. Let the changes begin!!!

    I really do believe a lot of Mario’s problem is mental, you can see the potential.

    Holy Smokes is Hezonja in a zone nice plays offense and D, hope it continues. On a side note Payton is wide open in the corner and know one will pass it to him.

    The only way I would take Hill is if they take the Biz contract; as said in a previous post Hill is just a transitional piece on a shorter deal.
  9. Should we try AG at the 3 again?

    My thinking is we need more length next to Vuc
  10. AG has really stepped up his game. Should we try AG at the 3 again? Augustin, EF, AG, JI and Vuc EP, JSimms, Ross, shooter?, Biz 2nd unit lacks offense a bit probably have to roll with Mario for now maybe see what Payne can bring. Iwundu at the 4 with small ball; he does have a 7’1” wingspan; similar length as Draymond Green - however needs some beef

    If you read my post more carefully I’m stating that I’m rolling with Weltman and company, but if this group can’t turn it around without making gross errors, I’m done. They absolutely deserve a chance to prove themselves and I remain optimistic. Please read carefully before calling others out.

    There is merit in these post as much as it pains me to acknowledge. I have been a fan since inception of 1989 and I’m running out of patience. It pains me to say it but this is my last run with Weltman and company as it’s just too frustrating to watch this mismanagement. Yes, Mr. Stickle I to am contemplating seeing myself out.

    Mario looks looks like a big bust. He has had ample opportunity to show something. Llyasova is just a marginal role player. He wouldn’t even start on most teams. The skill Mario was suppose to bring to the table was shooting and he is horrendous. He fouls a lot and is out of position on D quite a bit. He would probably struggle to start in the G league. I see him back in Europe very soon. I am extremely disappointed as I had high hopes for him, but I just don’t see it. He appears to have the body, hops and his shooting stroke looks good, but he just doesn’t translate. I think a big part of it is mental.

    I agree on passing as well. Unfortunately with Biz and EF salaries we need to find a diamond in the rough or draft a PG; on another note I was impressed with Vuc last night, but we still need rim protection; I wish he would embrace a 6th man role as he would be awesome for that and be worth keeping. Payton needs to go! He’s shooting better, but his perimeter D is abysmal. I would love to find some team to take Biz; he’s worth about 10 mil tops.
