Was thinking the same thing when I was watching that. People would be suspended for games for some of the stuff they did back then
And most of the 4th quarter fouls would have been flagrants.

Thoughts on McLemore to the Magic? I keep hearing he isn't a great fit and I just don't understand. Their biggest need is PG, but I don't think they'd take Trey Burke at 2. We kinda have a log jam at SG/SF/PF right now with Afflalo, Harkless, Harris, Nicholson.

Afflalo can play SG/SF
Harkless can play SG/SF
Harris SF/PF
Nicholson PF

I personally wish they'd just trade Afflalo and roll with Nelson/McLemore/Harkless/Harris/Vucevic

Pete, crzy, others...thoughts? I really hope they get the St. Louis kid McLemore

If I read your GMs approach correctly, he's not going to be worried about about fit at this point in time. You worry about fit once your core is in place, and with cheaper players, but in Orlando's position you just draft BPA. You guys are about to start Year 2 of about a 4 year rebuild. McLemore reminds me a bit of a young Jason Richardson. He needs to improve his ball handling, but he's a helluva shooter and great in transition. He'd be a good pickup for Orlando.

That said, I've read that Cleveland is shopping the #1 pick, so he might not be available if a trade is made an another team likes him.

Gotcha. Yeah I've heard Ray Allen and Jason Richardson. Amazing jump shot. I do think Orlando has a core group of guys w/ Vucevic, Harkless, Harris, Nicholson..have an older, but still serviceable PG. I think McLemore would be nice.

Unless they just don't feel confident in Noel, I have no clue why they'd trade. They have a solid back court w/ Irving/Waiters

1) They're not in love with the #1 picks available this year.
2) For some reason they still have faith in Tristan Thompson
3) They want a contributing veteran and want to contend for a playoff spot ASAP.
4) They're the dumbass Cavs.

Orlando has some nice, young talent, but it wouldn't surprise me at all if a couple of them were moved in the next couple of years. Josh whatshisface is in asset acquisition mode right now and will be for the next 2 years, IMO.

Yeah, Cavaliers don't make sense. I'd draft Noel in a heart beat.

Josh Whatshisface? Are you referring to Rob Hennigan? Magic GM? I could maybe see some guys from Orlando be moved if they can get higher picks in 2014 (much better draft)

@ OKC gettin' burned on the Harden trade. Kevin Martin is meh, Lamb is and they landed the 12th pick in one of the worst drafts in recent memory. LOL

They better hit big on that 12th pick, otherwise it would have to go down as one of the worst trades in recent memory.

Only chance it was anywhere near worth it was if they got #3

Magic pursuing Eric Bledsoe
Yea I hear Bledsoe and Caron Butler's expiring contract for Aaron Afflalo.

I think thats a great call for the Clips, and....well it's good for the Clips cuz Bledsoe is just a liability, and I think Afflalo is a much better compliment to that squad than CB. Don't know what it does for Magic unless they plan on courting a high profile FA. Probably gonna need to unload CB to keep CP3, right?
