Like many Orlando magic fans, I anticipate that the chatter regarding Dwight Howard's trade status is only going to increase. It is, I believe, primarily a function of media-the number of media outlets have increased, but the number of legitimate stories have not. As such, I believe that "sources" will continue to generate more and more stories about where Dwight Howard will be playing next year. And inevitably, with the generation of these stories will come trade suggestions. Some trade suggestions are well-thought out scenarios, with caveats given to respect the personalities that affect the trades themselves, as well as the myriad financial and personnel implications of aforementioned trades.
Many trade suggestions, however, are ridiculous pipe-dreams with no basis in reality. Some like to deride these trades, some dismiss them, I say . . .
. . .well, here's a place to put 'em!
Rather than dumping ridiculous trade ideas in a thread where they don't belong, put them here in this post! Is it silly? One-sided? Defiant of all reason? Now there's a place for it!!
Dwight for Varejao, Gibson, and Hollins? GREAT! Cleveland gets the most dominant center in the league, and Orlando gets Sideshow Bob, a guy whose nickname is "boobie," and . . . well . . . Ryan Hollins (couldn't think of anything funny about him.) And the salaries work! WIN-WIN!
Dwight to the Kings for Jimmer Fredette, Tyreke Evans, Isaiah Thomas, and John Salmons? Why not? Sacramento gets the most dominant center in the league, and I've been saying all along that Orlando really needs to get shorter! And think of all the options we'll have in the 1/2 spot! And we get Isaiah Thomas! Not the late '80s Thomas that played for the Pistons! No, the other guy! You know, Isaiah Thomas?! That plays for the Kings? You don't know?! Well, still: WIN-WIN!
This way, we can all have a laugh instead of weeping and gnashing our teeth. If there's anything missing in Orlando lately, it's smiling (well, besides consistency, hustle, dependable perimeter defense, etc.) Put your suggestions in the comments below. It's all in fun, so try not to take it too seriously.
