All I can say is 'Wow'.
Does anyone else feel bad for the former Magic players who are now languishing on the Nets? I was a big fan of Courtney Lee last year. I also felt Rafer Alston did an admirable job last year piloting the team to the finals - only to have Jameer come in at the last minute. I'm sure he was traded because he voiced his displeasure with the way things went in the Finals - and which of you wouldn't be pissed? Tony Battie put in some quality minutes for the team for several years. But this post wasn't about last year, or any other year. This post is about how I actually feel bad for a couple of guys I have never met, and who make millions of dollars doing something they love. I guess I feel bad because I have no idea how it would feel to go from virtually the top of your profession in going to the NBA finals to going to the absolute bottom.
Everyone knows New Jersey is a hellhole... it always has been. Maybe with new ownership things will improve. I hope so - if only for our former Magic players. Courtney Lee has a bright future, but I dont think it will be realized until he gets off that terrible team.
