Larry was the heart and soul of the bench. We shouldn't have to give him up in the trade. Taking IT off of Cleveland's hand was a blessing for them already.

Bottom line is we were winning with what we have. The chemistry was there. The team was jelling. We had to go and make more dumb moves in order to "have a chance" at securing supposedly better players in the future. In that regard, we sacrifice our present in order to have a chance at a brighter future. I really, really hope it works out. Otherwise, Magic's gotta go.

Look at what IT did to Cleveland and Lebron had the front seat to seeing what was happening. Do you think Lebron would even consider coming here if we signed IT??

Thomas is TERRIBLE! OMG I have never seen anything like that on defense. We will lose a lot of games if we continue to give him minutes.


you haven't been watching the Lakers play defense the last few years have you.


You are right! Our improved defense is fragile and IT is a big wrecking ball. He makes Chucky Atkins look like a lock down defender.
