Magic get Afflalo, Harrington, Josh McRoberts, Eyenga, Vucevic, Moe Harkless, three 1st rd & two 2nd rd picks for the best center in NBA
^^^^ officially what the Magic received for the best center in the NBA
Can't believe ORL accepted this deal. It gives them nothing to work with now and probably not in the future. They got 3 first round picks that will most likely be low AND if for some reason they aren't, they're PROTECTED. SMMFH
They traded D12 like he was just a good player. To not get Bynum and the picks was stupid on their part.
someone please tell me how a NY first round pick got included in this deal?
is this James Dolan's "giving it all away for one player" deal for Melo still lingering?
wtf is wrong with the Knicks F.O.? will this madness never stop?
oh yeah, James Dolan... f*cking a$$hole!
Looks like NBA got whiff of the rape Lakeshow was about to put on, and turned this deal into a gangbang.
Everybody made out like bandits, with LA at the clear top.
I don't know how much better this makes Philly, but potentially much better. It's the player they needed, and Iggy is pretty beastly, but his skill set is rather replicable from where the 76 roster is deepest.
Nuggets will be even more fun to watch, and definitely got better, too. They aren't contenders, but will be interesting to see what happens to them over next few years between player development and what other tricks their stud GM has up his sleeve.
This also illustrates the core problems with the NYK which I have been saying for quite some time, but prolly don't say enough:
in this NBA, when you have teams making deals for Howard and giving up what they gave up....juxtaposed with what we give up for someone like Melo,
And when you are paying guys like Amare, the same thing you are paying guys like Howard (and co.)
you are not in a good place. at all.
This is the sad, underlying (and not so underlying) reality of our franchise, that manifests itself from James Dolan in a myriad of ways.
Dolan's meddlesome, ignorant business sense will ultimately overrule anything and everything. one of the biggest shames in the history of sports ownership that Knick fans have had to endure for a dozen years. i pity the fool.
I figured it was only a matter of time for Dwight to end up with the Lakers after the NBA blocked the trade to the Rockets. Stern is so typical. Gotta have an excuse to show the Lakers EVERY SUNDAY as the second game of the doubleheader. Don't throw in the towel just yet tho folks. I think our frontline will be able to match-up with any team out there. Bynum to Philly doesn't concern me much because he is a sometime player. I feel sorry for Doug Collins for sure. Philly gives up thier best player for Bynum??? See this is why I quit messing with Philly two decades ago and became a KNICKS fan because they do dumb stuff. KNICKS/LAKERS/MIAMI will be must-see TV this season for sure.
