Stevey is returning to Orlando, how do you guys feel about that? Would you boo him cheer for him, or just treat him like any other player?

15,000 Ucash to whoever guesses the right score.

Orlando- 109
New York- 96

I'm hearing Darko will be starting, because Howard was late so Hill decided to bench him for the first couple of minutes or so.

Interesting ... after lastnight Brian Hill was talking about changing the starting lineup because he wasn't happy with the starters lastnight. I assumed that meant someone other than Dwight though.

a real interesting dynamic to me is how much darko plays tonight against the larry brown coached knicks, if hill limits his minutes like he did last night then darko may lose whatever confidence he had built up since the trade. i personally would give darko a wink and tell him you're playing 40 minutes tonight unless one you foul out or two collapse from exhaustion. personally i think hill's *** is on the line, i know coaches try to win every game but more so i think he is expected to get this team ready for the future.

Dwight not starting tonight for the first time in his career. It'll be interesting to see how it effects him. Does he have a crappy, pissed off game or does he have a killer, pissed off game.

poor larry brown, thats a shame.

The Knicks are an embarrassment right now ... but Brown isn't helping. I think he's losing his mind. He starts Francis then doesn't start or play him in the 2nd half. And for some ungodly reason he starts Jerome James in the 2nd half.

Dwight needs to get benched more often. He was beastly tonight.

If coming off the bench helped Dwight’s play: “I think it did. I think he was probably disappointed in himself tonight a little bit for being late for shoot-around and if it did motivate him or whether he was upset with me, whatever it was, he can be upset with me every night if he plays like that every night. I was happy to see him come out the way he did. He was very focused, he attacked the basket. He was really active on the defensive end and on the offensive boards and he did an excellent job.” - Brian Hill

Another solid one from Darko

13 pts, 7 rebs, 4 blocks, 2 asts, 1 steal
i think if you play him he will play through a mistake or two and give you good numbers. he looks for sure like he could lead the league in blocks or come pretty close to it, i think the numbers go up over time, maybe in the pau gasol range as far as stats go.

Darko is going to lead the league in blocks at some point. I don't know if I see it in him offensively to be a 20 ppg player, but saying that his shotblocking ability is a cut above the rest is putting it mildly.

As Darko gets his comfort level his offense will come around....Im sure he still hears Larry Brown screaming every time he raises for a shot.
