Dude, that's obvious. And also they still have one of the best jobs in the world, they play ball and they get paid.
Is not all about money, we are fans, man. He's trash for our team, not trash as a human being, end of story 8-)

Jeryl Sasser was trash.


You know who wasn't? Pat Burke!

Players available when the Magic tabbed Sasser: Gerald Wallace, Sam Dalembert, Jamaal Tinsley, Tony Parker, Gilbert Arenas, Brian Scalabrine, Mehmet Okur, Earl Watson, Bobby Simmons, Loren Woods, Jarron Collins. A suite of interesting players were also left undrafted: Carlos Arroyo, Charlie Bell, Maurice Evans, Linton Johnson, Jamario Moon, Andrés Nocioni.

So in a draft were Kwame Brown went #1 overall, 17 players drafted AFTER Sasser had good to great careers.

Orlando not only got a scrub in Sasser, there were loads of draftable players available. That if Orlando had drafted Brian Scalabrine would be a story line of "a better pick" shows how horrible Sasser was.

The Irishman was a great story. I recall that he was discovered in a YMCA playing Summer pick-up games in Altamonte Springs or Apopka (I cannot recall). He ended up started on opening night that year; the Magic won the game.
