That team's only going to get better. They got a nice nucleus with DHoward, Jameer, and Darko.

They still have the rights to Fran Vasquez I believe, and although they will probably not make the playoffs, they will improve in the draft.

have won 7 out there last 10

and are about to defeat the Pistons


seems like they've really improved since the Francis deal
Imagine that... you dump a guard who makes horrendous decisions and dominates the ball wo/ creating for others, and your team improves, despite the fact that you lost the big numbers he produces. Maybe the whole is different than the sum of its parts, after all.

I said it a while back right after the Arroyo, Darko, and Ariza trades that I fully expect Orlando to be a real force at home next year. The crowds there are really growing and everyone seems to love what is going on, especially Arroyo. And if they can be so-so on the road they should be solidly in the playoffs next year.

Darko, Arroyo, Dooling, and Ariza have all been very solid and sometimes spectacular off the bench and have really solidified the team.

Well, he's been really blowing it up with the Kni... err, wait. Nevermind.

It is crazy (and sad) but yes they could. They'd need some help and would need to win most of the rest of their 7 games. Two tough games @ Miami and @ San Antonio. But they do play Philly, Chicago, and Indiana to close out the year. Those could turn into some interesting games.

Unfortunately Hedo Turkeyglue went down with an injury at the very end of tonights game. It didn't look too good. He has been playing fantastic during Orlando's run. If he is out it would be tough.

what the hell is the point of winning games now. there worst position is wing (especially with hedo out). unless they want to suck balls and be mediocre for another 12 months until they can use all that money under the salary cap to sign vince or PP. just throw a few games and get urself gay, carney, foye .... just anyone i like!!!!

the magic look nasty next season if they pick up carney, he'd go great on their team IMO
its always good to get a win, it gets the young players who are there now confidence and experience going into next season.
cant lose just to get a higher lottery pick, because it is a lottery afterall, the pick could still end up anywhere on the board

I want Carney in Orlando, but alas, unless they get into the top 3, it's not going to happen.
