The Magic have signed Jason Williams - that's "White Chocolate" formerly-of-the-Heat Jason Williams, as opposed to ended-his-career-on-a-motorcycle Jay Williams or got-accused-of-murder Jayson Williams. Makes sense, since Rafer was traded in the Carter deal, I guess Williams will be the primary back-up to Nelson now, and he's a good passer and a good shooter, he'll fit in with their three-point-heavy offense.

What say you, YLB? or ?

I'm guessing he'll be a third-stringer unless AJ goes back into Van Gundy's doghouse again. He'll be fine.

I really liked J-Will when he first came up with Sacramento. He jumped in there and brought some excitement and changed the way that entire team played ball, for the better. Started seeing more unselfish play and better passing on that team.

Well, yeah, that was obviously like 10 years ago and he's not the same player. But it's not a bad move for the Magic.

Who knew YLB was into the White Chocolate?

Looking like Iverson will be a Bobcat.

Chandler/Diop/Mohammed
Diaw/D.Brown
Wallace/Radmanovic
Iverson/Bell/Henderson
Felton/Augustin

In case anyone was curious how the Dirk saga ended up:

Let's go, Mavs

Change the OutKast to Hasselhoff, and it's pretty accurate.

The Magic are going to wreck some motherfuckers this year. Cannot wait.

They should repeat, no question. If they don't, chalk this season down as a massive fail.

I do think that the Magic have one of, if not, the deepest teams in the league and can play pretty much any style of play now. Jameer's coming back, Dwight's only going to get better, Vince is an upgrade over Hedon't, and Gortat can be traded somewhere down the line for some spare parts if he doesn't work out as a backup for some reason.

They matchup better with a healthy Celtics team and can definitely take the LeBrons like they did last year. Who else do they have to worry about in the East? The Wizards? Maybe the Hawks?

Are you really worried, or are you just randomly italicizing things?

I actually think that this young Portland team with such good talent, can be a potential problem for the West.
There you go.

Yikes, I agree. You should be more worried about the Spurs though.

the celtics will win the nba title as long as KG stays healthy.

in fact, the celtics would be working on their third straight NBA title if KG could have stayed healthy.
