Thu Feb 21, 2013 6:31 pm by mbn23

PG - Nelson(for now)/Benu (future?)
SG - AA/Lamb? lol
SF - Harkless/Nicholson
PF - Nicholson/Harris
C - Vucevic/BBD

Not really sure who the back up to AA would be, nor the starting rotation with the SF AND PF positions.

I apologize ahead of time if there is a thread where this should be. I'm trying to be a bigger part of the boards here.

Nelson/Benu
AA/Moore
Harkless/Harris
Nicholson/Harris
Vuc/O'Quinn

for the time being we'll get Moore at the 1, benu backup, maybe Lamb as backup 2.

I would assume Moore will start while Jameer is out, forcing Lamb to play some 2.

Only for the immediate short-term. Udrih is now the undisputed 2nd best PG on this roster. Moore will get more minutes at the SG now, which is good. His spot up three is legit.

I think DJ will be ahead of Lamb in the rotation. DJ will still be called on to play the 2 and 3.

No love for Jones?

I think Warrick will get some minutes at 4 too.

Forgot about Jones, he might get in ahead of Lamb/Harris for a while.

I still haven't seen anybody explain why we traded mcroberts to CHA for nothin...all that means is that we are treated to more playing time for Nicholson who has proven to be decent at 18 ft jumpers and almost downright terrible at anything else. He's E'Twaun Moore with less scoring ability. Am I missing something? From where I stand he's a scientist that makes bone-headed plays on the court.
IMO he's looking like a terrible pick drafted solely on character. How he made it to the rookie/sophomore game I will never understand.

It's not going to be pretty
Basketball is driven by three principles:

1) Movement 2) Application of fundamentals 3) Predictability

We got cash for it and we turned our extended our TPE that would have expired July 9th to one that now expires Feb 20th, 2014.

To answer your question... the trade was made so we could extend our TPE which would have expired.

Secondly, how many Magic games have you watched this season? Serious question.

By 100% design.

Expect more of the same in 2013-14.

I watched every single game this season. I always do. I understand he had some nice games earlier in the year but those performances are starting to look flukey. I may have been a little harsh on him but I'm just really unimpressed by recent performances and I know he's young but I don't see anything about this guy that says he's going to be a piece to build on for the future. Am I totally wrong?

If Jones is playing ahead of Lamb at the end of the season, that's not a good sign. DJ will be out of this league very soon...

Well then you must have noticed he has a pretty nice post game. You didn't give him credit for that. He just needs to gain experience and work on his body.
