    Is it just me or do the claims of JI and Bamba putting on a ton of muscle seem to be legit? I don’t remember seeing any muscle on them last year and they both are looking noticeably swole in this pic.

    Fair enough. I understand your points of view and get why the Magic wouldn’t want him here. I also wouldn’t mind the gamble honestly. With that being said what the Magic really need is 2016-2017 Fournier to come back this year and not suck it up as bad as he did last year. That would fix our scoring issues and if Fultz is healthy that should also help us in the scoring department.

    Realistically who on the second unit would he be taking shots from besides Ross? We don’t know if Bamba will be able to handle extended playing time much less handle Offensive responsibilities. Fultz is a toss up and I’m ok with Ross having a little better shot selection and bringing in another potential scorer/former All Star. It probably won’t happen but would be excited if it did. Plus gives us something to talk about during the dreadful offseason.

    I don’t mind inefficiency in spurts especially if it can turn into big nights on occasion. Let’s not kid ourselves and say Ross didn’t shoot us out of some games last season. If a determined Melo can come in and save his career by playing well for us why not give it a shot? We have nothing to lose bringing him in and taking one of the 15 roster spots. We can gain offense and make up for the lack of D with our superior team defense we will be playing this year. Also I’m not a Melo fan by any means but if he can put the ball through the basket and is a proven scorer why not give him a shot?

    Don’t see a problem with signing Melo at all. He brings instant offense to the second unit and our defensive schemes will hide all the weaknesses he has on D. If it doesn’t work out we waive him seeing as he won’t get more than the minimum vet deal at this point.

    I advocated for this about a month or two ago and am still intrigued by that prospect. Perhaps the organization already sees him as a 2 and that’s why we didn’t address the need in free agency or through a trade. Wes is more than capable defending guards he just needs a consistent shot to stay on the floor.

    Its also the coaches job to run certain plays and sets in order to facilitate those looks for players. If we stop running the offense through Vuc and let AG handle the ball more he will not only score more but also set up his teammates with good looks which will also lead to more wins. AG showed in the playoffs he can handle the ball and score efficiently. Let’s unleash him this season along with the rest of our young guys. I’m tired of relying on Vuc and Fournier every year to come up with the same results. If we want growth we need to put our players in positions to succeed.

    I’m glad you can get a good laugh but when a guy is fighting to stay in the league he will take whatever he can get. Laugh all you want but Melo coming off the bench is exactly what we need with all the defense we have and no legitimate go to iso scorer. Again I’d take a flyer as long as he knows his role is to come off the bench and be a scoring specialist.

    Can he even be invited even though he isn’t on a roster? Either way I’d take a flyer on him seeing as he’s looking for a fresh start and he still has game. We need scoring and having him come off the bench for us would be better than having Jeffries, Melo is a proven scorer and we need to score points. We can stash Jeffries on our G league team.

    He said his preferred option was to play for a contender but if that’s not an option he just wants to continue playing in the league. What better narrative for a comeback than helping the Magic become a better team than last year and still show he can play and help a team win.

    Melo on first take saying he’s willing to come off the bench and be a leader on the court and in the locker room. I wouldn’t mind giving him a chance with our second unit to provide crazy scoring along with TRoss.

    I agree with you about them being leaders in the community. They just set this franchise back far enough all these years to make me want to dislike them with all the boneheaded decisions they’ve made in the past. I hope they have really learned their lesson and let WeltHam do their job and build this team the right way.

    The only draft pick I feel like we missed on and could have gotten better talent was the year we got Mario Hezonja. There were better options available for sure but thankfully for us that management is gone besides the untouchables (Martins and the Devos family.) I agree with you though with the rest.

    I see Isaac more as a defensive force with a respectable offensive game. Now if he can get his offense up to par with his defense (which I can see him doing) he will be in the conversation with those handful of guys you’re talking about. Again the guys is young and already trying to define his career is crazy. Especially considering last year was his first full year of playing time. You can’t tell me a guy so young won’t continue to develop. Will he be a super star maybe not but saying he definitely won’t be is being short sighted and unrealistic. Again let the guy play first and develop before projecting him as staying in the league and getting a couple all star nods. What other people fail to stop and think about his usage is maybe that’s just been his coaches game plans and he hasn’t had a chance to showcase that killer mentality because he plays team ball and wants his team to win. That’s one of the reasons I wanted us not to resign Vuc and somehow trade away Fournier. More touches would become available and we could run more offense through AG and get JI more touches. Honestly he has the most potential on our team besides Fultz and the aforementioned guy hasn’t even stepped on the court for us yet. I see JI taking a big step this year and don’t be surprised if he’s running for MIP next year especially if those 25 pounds of muscle he supposedly put on over the summer rumors are true.

    Coming from a fan just like the rest of us. To say someone is absolutely not going to become something is absolutely ludicrous. The guy is just getting his feet wet and if you watched the games where JI was feeling good on offense you could just see the confidence coming out in his game. If you give the man more touches he’s going to produce more simple as that. To try and say he’s not going to be great in this league based off of nothing more than personal opinion is laughable. Give the guy a chance to at least grow into his body and get consistent playing time and some plays called for him. God forbid we are patient with our players and actually let them develop here instead of on another team. I think too many people are wanting to win the quick and easy way with how the league is trending with all this buddy ball super team garbage. If we are patient and actually develop our players correctly we will be a scary team to beat. I’d rather develop our players and build something the right way than pull these Houston moves and over paying to try and stay relevant.
