    I'm actually pleased with T.J.'s game tonight and Troy's early shooting and defense was pretty good.

    Mike's shooting is looking good as well.
    T.J.'s scoring well, he sucks at running an offense though. And all but one of his assists, are bail out assists. *dribble into trouble, pass to a guy who shoots and makes it.*

    however it's a game like this where it feels like T.J. would make a good scorer off the bench for someone. Undersized shooting guard it is..

    I didn't see Tyler's travel's too well, but they didn't seem anyworse than anyone else's travels. In fact, they are significantly less noticable than Lebron's.. But I gotta defend Tyler here. Tyler's game is to score, that's what he knows how to do. He's not gonna figure out how to adjust his game to fit the pro level a month into his pro career. Also, he's a rookie..did we really expect FOUR great games in a row by him.

    Three excellent passes by Hans so far. Yep, he can do that too.

    I've seen some pretty ridiculous pushing in the paint by Magic players in the first half. They are going to get someone hurt.

    Yes. They are also mistakes many rookie NBA players make as they adjust to the way these things are called on the big stage.
    because the NBA is known for its strict interpretation of the traveling rule compared to college?

    Traveling in the NBA is enforced like speeding on the highway. Everyone does it, and you only get nailed if they are looking for you.

    There is one travel they call all the time: The one where you start taking steps before you begin to dribble.

    "I keep wondering the same thing. Last week they had the 4th worst record in the league, had an 11.9 percent chance of winning the lottery and were in line to land a franchise type player like Derrick Favors or DeMarcus Cousins. This week? They have a 1.7 percent chance of winning the lottery, have the 8th worst record and are in line to draft Cole Aldrich or Greg Monroe. Way to go Jim O'Brien. Rest Danny Granger the rest of the season (if it isn't too late) and give Josh McRoberts lots of minutes. That ought to do it." - Chad Ford on winning meaningless games

    Way to go Jim, you may have just put our franchise back another 4+ years.

    God, I hate Troy Murphy. I find myself hoping he misses his shots just so O'brien will sit him...only problem is he won't. During Orlandos comeback in the 2nd quarter Murphy had like FIVE plays in a row where he took either a bad shot, made a ****ty pass, or turned it over. Also, the fact that he has no offense to speak of except for the trailing 3 point shot which often leads to a long rebound/opposing fast break score, makes me freakin' ill. I hate Troy Murphy. I hate TJ Ford no explanations needed. I HATE Jim O'brien because he doesn't recognize when players ar struggling and his substitution logic is extremely flawed. F jim o'brien. F him in his goat @ss.
    Roy Hibbert.... It's the POWER!!!

    Did you see those travels? Not every pro makes those, sorry. I'm not acting like it's something terrible, just making an observation. People are really uptight about Tyler.

    Is it against board policy to criticize Tyler in any way?

    Cant you love his play and criticize as well?

    The travels were bad, but I think his decision making will get better

    I love D. Jones, but god I can't stand when he jacks up a shot without looking for the pass first. He isn't a good enough shooter for me to condone that sort of behavior. I get mad when Granger does it, let alone D. Jones. I want to see more Solo as well. I think I have some ideas for my x-mas list to santa.
