I know the actual depth chart is gonna play out differently.. But man, they need some damn guards. DO IT KAHN.
And a Center. And probably a SF, if I had to venture a prediction.

I know we've been over this before but it kinda helps all the teams since Houston won't be getting either Gasol and desperately need a center.

http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=76yybd9

Hornets roster would be (considering they got Kaman, Bledsoe, Aminu, & Gordon for CP3)

PG: Jack / Bledsoe
SG: Gordon / Bellinelli
SF: Ariza / Webster / Aminu / Pondexter
PF: Beasely / Randolph
C: Kaman

.... The Rockets aren't trading one of the NBAs best scorers for ******* Emeka Okafor. It's not gonna happen. If they want a C that bad, they can offer Martin to another team that doesn't have an aging, declining C with a bad back and a bad contract.

I figured I'd ask here instead of the Xbox thread, I want to get an NBA game. Should I get 2K11 or 2K12?

Kidd
Terry
Odom
Dirk
Haywood

Bench
Marion
beaubois

Rudy Fernandez could possibly start too.

I wonder if we go after a center we can't possibly just rely on Haywood the entire season. Any news of Nene?

That $8.9 Million trade exception is enough for Charlie Villanueva!

Odom won't start over Marion, and they'll probably sign Vince Carter as well.

Marion came off the bench for us a lot, Odom will have better production over Marion. He didn't start until late in the season, I'm thinking he'll go back to coming off the bench.

Odom should start over Marion. He's better at everything. And you don't want him sulking and turning into a little ***** again.

I don't think anyone is arguing that Odom isn't better than Marion, just that he works better coming off the bench. He can still get the majority of the minutes.

I don't buy that 'he gets better because he's sitting in a chair when the starting whistle goes off' logic. Once you start playing starter minutes off the bench, it completely throws that logic out the window because most of your time on the floor you're playing against the opposing teams' starters as well.

Anyone see Dwight speak? He doesnt have the greatest relationship with Otis Smith at all these days. He was really pissed off when we traded away C Lee and Lewis. And he's more recently even more pissed that Arenas got the amnesty clause. Arenas also stated that he's going to sign with whoever lands Dwight. Howard's apparently been asking for trades to get his "friends" to Orlando for years. Otis Smith has not always agreed to these potential moves, however. Saying many of his suggestions were duplicates of players they already had, or just made no sense. So Dwight's just really fed up that he doesnt have more say or power in team personel decisions. hmmm. Dwight even called these buddies of his "nothing special", average guys. He just really wanted to play with his friends. I really do think Howard sounds a little silly in all of this. Even though he denies it, he essentially is looking to have free reign and play GM whenever he pleases. I certainly agree with him, in the thought that Smith should have involved him more on the trades they actually did make...but I also dont really agree with Dwight constantly trying to push the organization to add his buddies to the team, just for the hell of it.

Dwight's a good kid...but he's always come off as an immature dude. Seems like he's just doing a lot of pouting right now.

Howard's apparently been asking for trades to get his "friends" to Orlando for years. Otis Smith has not always agreed to these potential moves, however. Saying many of his suggestions were duplicates of players they already had, or just made no sense. So Dwight's just really fed up that he doesnt have more say or power in team personel decisions. hmmm. Dwight even called these buddies of his "nothing special", average guys. He just really wanted to play with his friends. I really do think Howard sounds a little silly in all of this. Even though he denies it, he essentially is looking to have free reign and play GM whenever he pleases.
I just hope Otis is fired when I wake up in the morning.

Stupid look on his face says it all... "Duhhh.... I like this team."

Yeah, I dont like him either. The whole situation between he and Dwight has been mismanaged. Dwight should probably let him do his job, but at the same time, Otis should have included him in on some of the player movement, that went on to piss him off.

Same thing happened with T-Mac, trading Mike Miller was what got the ball rolling in T-Mac's eventual departure....you should have a firm grasp of player relationship and where your overall chemistry is, before you go reeling off moves. Otis stupidly tore apart an Eastern Conference winner, with fantastic team chemistry, in favor of adding a bunch of over priced pieces that didnt fit together at all.

Otis ultimately doomed the Magic by making far too many moves. Things could have been much better had there been better communication between he and our star player. At the same time, Dwight shouldnt be trying to run the organization.

Well, it's pretty obvious that Dwight did let him do his job, and he did an absolutely awful one. Seriously, just about every move he made the past couple of years were bad. Would it have really hurt this team to throw Dwight a bone and get a few of his friends on the team? It couldn't have possibly ended worse, and at the very least, Dwight would be happy. He may be acting immature, but Otis Smith deserves all the blame here. He had seven years to make a team for Dwight, and he epic failed. Otis Smith will be the reason the Orlando Magic will be in the cellar of irrelevancy for the next decade again.

agreed. i think it's more about the rotation of players you put him with than anything, and how his skill set compliments that group. also, the lakers didn't really have a choice but to make him play 6th man. he's not exactly the ideal guy to guard a 3
