Magic roster if they do the Howard/Q-Rich for Noah/Brewer/Gibson/1st rnd draft pick trade:
PG: Nelson, Duhon, Hughes
SG: Richardson, Redick, Wafer
SF: Turkoglu, Brewer, Clark
PF: Anderson, Gibson, Harper
C: Noah, Davis, Orton
How did you take from his comment, that he was referring specifically to the Magic?

But yeah, that team looks kinda scrubby to me

If the Nets trade for howard without a long term extension they are complete fools. That almost goes for any team, but especailly the nets. Give up good young players and a draft pick to maybe sneak in playoffs as a 7 seed? Only to set your franchise back 5 years the next season? Yikes

He's no closer to a championship in that situation.... I think the Bulls make the most logical sense for him, and they can offer a decent package without gutting the team, while not completely leaving Orlando high and dry.

Bill Simmons had a fun idea for the playoffs that would never happen, but sounds amazing:

The idea was to only give out the top 7 playoff seeds, then have the bottom 8 in each conference play a one game tournament for the 8th seed. Obviously no sports league would ever do something this awesome, but how fun would that be?

Why would Howard move from one mediocre situation to another? The only thing wrong with this rumor is that it assumes Dwight is a complete imbecile.

You're assuming that the allure of the big city is more important to him than being in position to win a title. He'd be no closer to winning one in Jersey, and that's with Deron in the mix. If I were the Bulls, I offer Noah, Gibson and a second round pick or something to that effect, creating a potential lineup with Howard, Boozer, Deng, Rip, and Rose.

Oooooh the allure of playing for a .333 winning percentage NJ team! Where do I sign?


P.S. The NY City claim I went round and round with someone else about back when Lebron was going *somewhere*....WINNING brings fame and fortune....not playing in a "big market". The internet follows you anywhere.
