Philly actually came out of that deal pretty well. I would say they got the 2nd best deal behind LA. To get a true center which they never had along with a decent SG in J-Rich who can give you 15 or so PPG is a great deal for Philly. They basically just gave up Iguodala for Bynum and J-Rich. Not bad at all.
I'll bet Philly is wishing they never involved themselves in Howards drama.
I don't why turnup and Flauge feed into your nonsense.I don't know punchline, you'll have to ask them - for some reason, they're hell bent on continuing to bring it up...it's like some warped version of Stockholm syndrome wherein turnip, and to a much lesser degree flauge, seem to have developed this weird, traumatic bond with those that have intermittently but continually harassed, beaten, abused, and/or intimidating them here in the "Heat Haters" clubhouse...and yet they keep coming back for more. Odd, I know.
Orlando is just a dumb team with a terrible front office. As bad as Lopez rebounding and defense have been, he was always a damn good offensive center so instead of taking the Nets deal where you got about 3 or 4 players along with 2 first round draft picks you took the Lakers deal where you got no Center in return and was a much worse deal. God that team is dumb.To be honest, I still can't figure out why Orlando made that deal. They had the most to offer as far as the quality of the players involved, but got the least for it. The only thing I think of is they are just planning to re-build from scratch and that makes it easier to do.
There will be a banner raising 15 days from now, remember?Oh yeah, I forgot, you clowns in Miami are going to break out the pyrotechnics and hydraulics again in order to hoist your little * banner up into the rafters! How freakishly whimsical!
