Yeah I'm from Orlando and I think we all feel quite betrayed. From what I read in the papers a few months ago, it was Hill's intention to resign with us for the minimum, being how he screwed us over and felt that he owed us. Wonder what happened there...

Orlando should be very competitive in the East too, with another year under the belt for Howard/Nelson and signing Rashard Lewis.

Jameer Nelson isn't a point guard, he's an undersized scorer who knows how to dribble a basketball. He doesn't have good enough court vision to be a great point guard.

I'd like to see them sign Brevin Knight, package Arroyo/Turkoglu for some cap relief to re-sign Darko.

You could go to war with:

Dwight Howard
Rashard Lewis
Darko Make Basket Milicic
Jameer Nelson
J.J. Redick
Human sparkplug Keyon Dooling
The vastly underrated Trevor Ariza
'Ol Reliable Tony Battie

In the wide-open East, that can happen, and they might add Ron Artest? Sure, he's a crazy, but he's an amazing defender, decent scorer, with only 1 year left on a serviceable contract.

I'm still mad the Sixers never acquired Nelson somehow. I loved watching him at the Fieldhouse.

If the Sixers were made up entirely of former Big 5 players, I could care less if they lose. Besides, they'd be losing anyway with guys like Shavlik Randolph and Sammy Dalembert. That would be fun to watch.

Kyle Lowry
Marc Jackson
Tim Thomas
Aaron McKie
Randy Foye
Delonte West
Allan Ray
Mardy Collins
Malik Rose
Dwayne Jones
Lynn Greer
Eddie Jones
Jameer Nelson

There's no way I don't watch that team. No way.

I love how Allan Ray and Ray Allen are now both on the Celtics. One thing Danny Ainge has done right.

My father, for the first two years Allan Ray was at Nova, thought he was Ray Allen Jr. He actually believed that was his name.

I still call Ray Allen "Jesus Shuttlesworth," so I guess it's all relative.

Man, I pretty much like every player on that list. I would root for them as well.

You know what...add Kerry Kittles and Jason Lawson to this team and I might even become a season ticket holder.

I'm wondering what would the starting lineup look like for that team. I honestly barely follow the NBA enough to know how their careers have gone since college, but I know Jameer has done pretty well and Foye can't be doing poorly.

The starting lineup would be Jameer Nelson, Randy Foye, Eddie Jones, Tim Thomas, Marc Jackson (if he's still in the league).

That's a 25-win team at best.

Yup...unless he's a free agent this summer...that I do not know. Last year he was with the Hornets anyway.

Hmm, interesting.

Speaking of free agents, it looks like the Magic are gonna trade Carlos Arroyo, Human Wasteland Pat Garrity, and Keyon Dooling to the Sonics for cap relief to re-sign Darko.

If they switched Dooling with Keith Bogans, I'd be completely sold on that.

And a much more entertaining one than watching Kyle Korver, Sammy Dalembert, and Kevin Ollie every night. All just cause I saw em in college.
