now more then ever I guarantee there are players who cruise this forum, and the individual team boards. It wouldn't surprise me one bit if Jackson read this board, or some other Pistons as well.

Considering my source is his mother, I believe her.

Great lady. Met her at the Old Miami in Detroit, had a few drinks, and...so forth.

I would imagine a decent amount of players read social media comments and message boards to give them an edge. Like how Kobe and MJ used to create conflicts to up their focus. Probably more so now with the fan access being limited.

Well if that's the case, Josh, slow down, stop rushing. Feel like your on speed whenever you get the damn ball.

I'll try to get word to him but she hasn't been taking my calls lately.

So add Washington to that thread “what franchise would you not change places with”

Not sure why everyone didn’t already have them.

The Magic were NEVER the team with the worst assets.

Well... what can you do? JJ goes nuts, Westbrook manages to make a triple double look bad, and we win.

Beal will probably land 3-4 first rounders and a few pick swaps and younger players with potential as well.

I could easily see teams clearing out all their assets for him. Not sure we're on their level, although the Westbrook trade likely set them back a bit.

No idea what you mentioned.

A lot of people had one team only and it was the Magic (pre-trade deadline).

I don't believe that Beal will be moved. And I don't think you sit him unless you intend to move him. What probably will happen is they'll err on the side of caution with that injury pretty big time.

They have had ample opportunity to do so and chose not to this year even though it's pretty clear they're not making the playoffs.

Ok I didn’t get why you responded with Orlando.
Too lazy to find out, but I’m now thinking I was one of those people.

It'll be a fairly hard gut punch if Washington cruises along their no man's land territory in the W/L columns only to somehow leapfrog us in the draft

I don't think people are prepared with these likelihoods at all

I didn't think a team would be more painful to watch than Rockets and Raptors we faced lately. Wizards did it.

Yeah, the new lottery odds make the lotto more of a slot machine than it ever was before.

Overall I prefer the new system. People just dislike it because we got the wrong end of it last year.

Bummer. I totally missed this game. Nice stat line by Josh there. Any changes in play style? Was he just more on?
Nice assist totals throughout as well. I wish I would have seen the game because I bet there was some good ball movement.

The Wizards are also pretty terrible... but just trying to remain positive :)
