    Exactly you hit it right on the head! It’s all opinions and you asked why I thought the way I did and I explained myself. I would just like to point out he is/was the common denominator from that 2009 finals team up until now. We’ve moved on from plenty of front office personnel yet he still stays with this organization. If we continue to tread in mediocrity who else is to blame besides those who continue to be here during this long asss rebuild and continue to put out the same boring product year after year? So we can’t blame ownership because they are willing to spend money? That’s a little absurd considering they were calling the shots on all fronts until recently. All that brought was terrible decision making and trading future All Stars for short term pieces that never ended up working out for us anyways.

    In all honesty if we could fire the owners that would be ideal because they have tried too hard to dictate the day to day basketball operations from back when Otis was still our GM. I’m glad they finally realized they had no clue to what they were doing and finally hired a President of basketball operations. Now in reference to Martins, if he were employed anywhere else and did the things he was allowed to do he would have been fired more than once already. We blamed other people for his clear short comings (Stan Van Gundy, Frank Vogel, and Rob Hennigan to name a few) and used them as the scape goat when he was always the problem. When we cleaned house in our front office he should have been the first to go but apparently the owners have some sort of foolishly blind loyalty towards him and I’m not entirely sure why.

    Because he was part of the problem for many years and he deserved to be fired a long time ago because of those things.

    I didn’t have to apologize but I did so because my comment was a little out of line. I don’t like attacking people based on their thoughts or opinions and me not apologizing would have made me a hypocrite. Either way it’s all good and hope nobody got offended.

    If HAD said it as a joke then fair enough I just found it amusing he used those choice of words but that’s his prerogative to do so. I do want to apologize for my initial reaction earlier because I had just come back to my room from a heavy day of drinking out in Mexico and shouldn’t have responded the way I did. I still stand by my original post though and the message I was trying to get across I just shouldn’t have responded the way I did and take full responsibility for doing so. We are a medicore team with our current starting 5 and shouldn’t be content with the product we currently put out on the floor. If we run this back next year with the same starting 5 doing the same old things it indicates our front office is a joke and incompetent with doing their jobs which is bring this franchise a championship or at least attempt to compete for one.

    That’s pretty pathetic you would even post that. Obviously if there’s no basketball there’s nothing to talk about. It’s cool you like Fournier but he still is what he is which is an offensive minded player who doesn’t help his team win. There’s no bashing just truth being told by multiple posters on the fact their tired of the same product being put out on the floor over and over again expecting different results. If Fournier was gonna help this team become better he would have done it by now but we still get the same thing from him empty stats that don’t translate into wins.

    Very well put and I agree with this completely. Also let’s not forget the elderly who may not be able to survive from this if they happen to contract the disease. We need to protect the older generation by taking these precautions because they have more to lose than those of us who are younger and don’t have compromised immune systems.

    Correct! Evan would be best used coming off screens for catch and shoot situations or cutting to the basket to finish at the rim. He’s very underrated with that aspect of his game but he’s actually a great finisher around the rim. Too bad he’s so focused on running around the perimeter and shooting I’ll advised 3’s to actually play to his strengths.

    Again Evan Fournier is not a bad basketball player. Sure he can win you a handful of games but how many games does he also shoot us out of? Couple that with the lack of ball movement on the court when he’s out there and it’s easy to see he’s more of a detriment to this team than any positives he may bring. Bring him off the bench as a 6th man and he can probably hold the lead for us or keep us in the game. Outside of that he’s useless to this team because the ball movement stops when he is on the court. Evan Fournier on another team would be used differently and he wouldn’t be the second or even 3rd scoring option. He hurts us because he needs the ball in his hands to be effective but that isn’t winning us many basketball games. I’ll take a lesser known name and great ball movement/team work over the iso/buddy ball he brings any day of the week.

    Exactly this! Evan Fournier the basketball player isn’t horrible but Evan Fournier starting for the Magic IS Horrible. He just isn’t conducive to winning team basketball. If he were alright with coming off the bench as a super 6th man I’d keep him. But we all know his ego won’t let him accept that. We need ball movement and team play which he doesn’t bring on a consistent basis.

    I said it once, I said it twice, and I’ll say it one more time. Iwundu deserves minutes because he plays team basketball and gives good energy/effort every time he steps on the floor. Didn’t get to catch this game unfortunately but I like the stats I saw in the box score for the whole team. Let’s keep this winning streak going!!!

    I get what you were trying to say now. While I do agree with you to an extent I also feel when Fultz starts attacking early in the game it opens up his mid range game. Not sure if it’s the confidence he gets from watching a few go in early but it’s definitely a noticeable difference.

    Good ball movement will always work against good teams. When this team shares the ball we win games. When it stays stuck on the perimeter with guys dribbling the air out of it that’s when we get in trouble.

    When Fultz pushes the ball up the floor like he did last night he is unstoppable. It also gives him confidence to make those mid range jumpers which can be money as well. We need to let this kid loose and let him handle the ball as much as possible.

    Probably not I was just being funny and am happy we won a game finally. I still like how we moved the ball a lot more without him in the lineup though. I’m also still convinced Wes deserves minutes in this rotation.

    Evan who?

    Magic @ Timberwolves - Friday, March 6th at 8:00 P.M.

    So remind me again why Wes doesn’t deserve to be in the rotation? He hustles, plays hard, and is unselfish. He can actually score when he attacks the basket as well.

    I think MF read the message boards last night. Love this aggressiveness he is showing on the offensive end tonight!

    Magic @ Timberwolves - Friday, March 6th at 8:00 P.M.

    Wes already showing his hustle and activity on defense. The guy brings good energy when he is on the floor. Let’s hope he settles down and starts hitting his open shots.

    Iwundu has been freed! Hopefully he shows the coach why he deserves minutes in the rotation. I’m really rooting for the kid tonight.
