Any other Magic
fans here fed up with the trolling coming from the Nets
fans over at Nets Daily? I had a couple of them nag me over the fact that I clearly don't want Brook Lopez
on the Magic for a variety of reasons (foot injuries - not good at all for big men / would be overpaid with a 4yr. max salary / 7 footer that's a softie on defense, etc.). Granted, me saying I'd boo him during a game was just frustrated sarcasm coming out... but don't expect me to embrace him either. Yeah, I get it. "Hey, come on. Brook didn't ask for this." Yeah... I didn't ask for the Dwightmare either, but that didn't stop it from happening... Then they drag out their sales pitch on Brook, and how they're just trying to bring about a reasonable discussion on this saga. Is it really a saga for them? Is it really a saga when we give them a top 5 NBA player to team up with Joe Johnson
and D-Will, and O-Town is left with 3 1st round picks that are ultimately garbage anyway, and a few players that'll leave us in mediocre-ville for years? They stand nothing to lose if this trade goes down, so of course to them it's "reasonable discussion"... to me, it's just Nets fans acting like a... well, I won't go there. Anyway, I'm just fed up with them acting so smug over this situation, 'cause I guess to them it's finally "cool" to be a Nets fan again. They're almost as bad as Heat
fans now. Fingers crossed for the Houston deal though. I wonder if they'll still welcome Brook back if the Howard deal falls dead? If Howard does end up in Houston, as tempted as I am, I won't utter a word on Nets Daily. It's annoying dealing with their crap over here, and I prefer to just not deal with them on theirs.
One more thing, just a hypothetical. Remember last season with Chauncey Billups
being picked up off waivers by the Clippers
and he posted a statement saying he's no longer playing nice guy, and basically implying he might blow off Clippers training camp until the NBA threatened to fine him for breach of contract? I wonder if Howard were to be traded to Houston and he pulled a similar stunt, could he be punished as well?
