The deal just went down today that will ship 2004 #2 overall pick Emeka Okafor to New Orleans for Tyson Chandler. It's just another point to sit back and reflect on how the course of our franchise really changed on that year's draft night. I'll be the first to admit, I wanted the Magic to draft Okafor. I knew nothing about Dwight and was impressed with what Emeka had done at UConn. But if I had my way back then, who knows where this team would be? Probably less likely that Rashard comes in. We definitely wouldn't have pulled the Carter deal this year. We'd probably still be struggling to get out of the first round of the playoffs. So as the Okafor era comes to an end in Charlotte, let's be thankful it's not us looking to ship the center out of town.
