The nice thing about him playing with Reggie is how I remember him saying way back that Reggie showed him what it takes to be a leader and play the right way, and was the guy that held him fully accountable, and that he knows how to do that with other guys as a result. Getting that kind of mentality in this locker room puts them ahead of Orlando in many respects, and brings them up to where some other elite teams are at.

Compare that with guys like Maggette, Frye, Diaw, G Wallace, and you're looking at guys who could add nothing in terms of knowing what it takes to win, relatively speaking. Even if he's just here for two years, that kind of thing could really help so many players on this team much longer than that.
