*Beats Kawshen to it*

Orlando gets Steve Francis, Cuttino Mobley and Kelvin Cato. Houston gets Tracy McGrady , Juwan Howard, Reece Gaines and Tyronn Lue. Didnt Grant "The Glass Ankle" Hill used to be apart of this deal at some point?

Houston is looking pretty exciting to me right about now, unless McGrady/Yao turn into the Kobe/Shaq DramaFest II, which I doubt. I may have to become a Rockets fan until my crybaby-ass Lakers can get their act together.

Until the Magic got Nelson, I was beating my head against the wall after they picked D. Howard with Numero Uno. They are buidling, with a solid game plan - getting T-Mac out of town was the last straw. Whatever Weisbrod said to Francis this morning must have worked - J. Howard was nothing but a chump, Gaines and Lue I would pay to get lost, just to have B. Wallace and Darrell Armstrong back...but Mobley pays well, Cato I don't know to much about - but it looks as though he's a big son of a bitch that ain't scared to play defense. I'm liking the plan...

Houston has got it to get. Even with Vlade not sure, Shaq pissed, Kobe in a world of shit and Mark Cuban ready to throw a suitcase full of money out the window, I still rate Houston as out by round 2. The only drama is T-Mac only playing about 54 games becasue of his bad back - I don't see J.Howard picking up the slack...or Yao, unless they get lucky and draw a chump scheduele while T-Mac ain't playing. If he's out in the middle of a 7 game road stretach, bet the other way...

Re: That Albatross Grant Hill. No one will take him. I'm personally hoping he fakes his own death, but a guy like that has too much happening, I suppose.

I think Orlando got the better of this trade. I can't see McGrady accepting Van Gundy's: Play D and Give the Ball to the Center philosophy, and Francis and Mobley give Orlando a good Eastern Conference backcourt to build around. Plus, Houston plays in the death division, Orlando plays in the virtual cupcake division.

damn! forgot to crow about that!

Charlotte Bobcats (haw!r)
Miami Heat (ouch - they will be good)
Orlando Magic (right on)
Washington Wizards (sayonara)

EVERYONE: sorry if I'm being an overeager fanboy, but Jesus - at least you Knicks and Lakers fans have normal turmoil, not "self-inflicted pay the dude $40 million to get off the plane on crutches and then listen to the sugarbaby whine while you made him a somebody" shit I have had to put up with. So I'm happy that T-Mac and his opt-out got the heave-ho...if it wan't for Goose Givens being a pervert, this would have been a very good week...

I've one thing to say (since Frosty is a Thunder Stealer :))



Hopefully Yao and T-Mac won't treat each other like another shooting guard/center tandem that will remain nameless.

This is COMPLETELY off-topic, but does any of the designers around here know the name of that font used in that T-Mac picture?

I too, hope T-Mac and Yao can coexist peacefully in Houston. Ideally, they'll complement each others games and open easy looks for each other.

A quick check of the file name shows it to be someone named Michelle Marsh.

The really big question is - Will they write a song in Houston about T-Mac like they did Yao Ming ?

Orlando looks a whole better now than they did last year provided Stevie can keep the headaches to a minimum. Mobley will be a very viable 3rd option on the floor, Jameer Nelson looks good as a 3rd guard and Cato should be strong enough in the post for the Eastern Conference.

Now where does the next domino fall ?

Who's going to run the point in Orlando? They couldn't have traded for Jameer Nelson JUST to have him sit behind Francis. And I couldn't think of a worse person for Nelson to have to sit and learn from than Steve "shoot first, pass second" Francis.

It's Michelle Marsh, a Brit model I found while flipping through an issue of UK's Loaded magazine.

I'd think they would put Nelson at the one and Francis at the two, like Snow and Iverson in Philly.

But what of Cuttino Mobley?


And yes she is.

Meandering from the topic, so all apologies, but it relates to the Magic, so ....

For Flea or any other Orlando fans, what do you all think of Keith Bogans? Does he have a future in Orlando? As a UK mark, I really hope that he has a chance to be succesful ala Tayshaun Prince in Detroit or Jamaal Magliore in New Orleans.

Thanks and sorry to lean off topic, but I'm wondering how the addition of Francis may impact Keith.

Man that's not cool, this should be the Grizzlies' division which would put them in a pretty good position, but instead they have to be in the death division too.

It looks KIND of like the Price Is Right font...Google for that and it'll come up. Not sure if that's what it actually is though.

It's very, very close to an older version of House Gothic by House Industries (houseind.com). House Gothic is less squared-off and the "W" is completely different, but it's got the same general aesthetic. IIRC the cross stroke of the "T" passed all the way through in older versions; it doesn't anymore.

I think the same theory could be applied to Houston considering who they got rid of...
