    It means we either won by more than the oddsmakers said we would, won when they said we would lose, or lost by less than they predicted. If they predicted us to lose by 10, and we lost by 7 or won, then we beat the spread. If they predict us winning by 10 and we win by 12, we beat the spread.

    When will you learn not to be so negative? I’m not saying a bad start is positive, but it’s not always the end of the world, either! I’ve seen you say this kind of thing before, only to end up eating your words by the end of the game.Try waiting and watching until at least halfway thru the third before jumping to a negative conclusion. It’s not just you, but the mood swings on this board lately is enough to give me whiplash . I think we need some risperidone or abilify prescriptions for all the bi-polar reactions on here.

    It’s all about how you look at it. Dwight had the better Magic career, Shaq the much better “full” career. Frankly, I wouldn’t retire either of their jerseys based on what they did here in Orlando.

    Either that or he has twice as much chance of fouling!

    I’m actually okay with the door hitting him in the a— on the way out! Lol!!

    I would hate to give up on Fultz, but I definitely would do it for the right move. I’m afraid he is never going to be physically right to live up to his potential. I would be okay bringing him back as a cheaper backup. I would also prefer not to give up on AB this soon, as I think there is a lot of untapped potential there as well; and I think he has a chance to be very good; but again, for the right move I would consider moving him. I don’t think Houstan has as much potential, but I wouldn’t mind keeping him for another year to see how much more he can grow as a player. He rarely makes mistakes and seems to play decent defensively.. I honestly think we need to move on from Cole once he is not a “poison pill” contract- this summer once the new contract kicks in. He is too much of a black hole, and his BBIQ seems low. Maybe use him as part of a free-agent sign and trade? If we don’t make a trade at the deadline, then I would like us to move Chuma and/or G Harris to open up a roster spot for another PG. We could possibly elevate Queen to a regular contract and make McClung into a two-way, or vice-versa if there isn’t a better PG to be had. I was surprised we brought back both K Harris and Schofield, and signed Queen to the third two-way; I really thought we needed Mac or another PG with one of those spots. Edit: I would be okay with releasing K Harris or Schofield to make McClung or another PG our third two-way.

    His extension means his outgoing value is about $12M, but you only get about $5.5M In matching incoming

    Unfortunately, Cole has a “poison pill” contract. I honestly think he is the piece that needs to be moved for a Tyus Jones or Brogdan type player.

    Chumas problem isn’t that his shot is broken, it’s his confidence that has taken several hits. When he defers, he thinks too much; but when he gets aggressive, and just plays, everything gets going. I would like to see him down in the G-League for a bit to let him be the alpha. His defense the last few games has been outstanding. He played Trae as well as anyone; and remember he is a PF/SF combo trying to guard one of the quickest PG in the league. Also a shout out to Trevelin Queen. Last night I was hoping Mosley would put him in instead of Cole!

    But it’s supposed to be about what they actually accomplished with the team. I would argue that the Lakers should and the Heat probably should retire his number, but I don’t think we should. I would argue that Dwight did more while he was with the Magic; partly because he was here longer. D12 had a better defensive game, Shaq had a much better offensive game and career.

    Thank goodness, Paolo got re-taped and is back.

    Franz out for the night, G Harris out for the night, Paolo just rolled an ankle and we’re waiting to hear if he’s done for the night. I feel like part of our injury issues is that everyone plays us very aggressively because they know the refs are not going to call anything but the really egregious fouls. The ONLY guy on our team who gets any respect from the officials is Paolo; but half of them don’t because he is only a second year player.

    As I mentioned earlier, his shot looks good, it’s just that his release is really slow.

    I’m not really sure why we don’t find AB more in the offense. He seems to make the right cut or the shot. His shot looks okay. He’s over 50% from the field. Yes, he’s 32% from 3, but it looks good most of the time, just slow getting it off. And he moves the ball well. I think other teams ignore him because we do on that end.
