God no ... the Magic rivalry just got a whole lot more intense. Our only trouble now is that the Magic are waaaaaay better than us on paper now with the addition of Carter.

I think we'll narrow the talent gap a little over the summer.

agreed, plus i believe our new rivalry has been orlando since last playoffs constently we have close games against each other and each time either Bosh or howard gets pissed off in a game...plus its always Bosh vs howard and crap but now that vince is here...this rivalry will really start to get going especially when magics come to acc....hoooaaaa the fans will go crazy

we have no real rivalry now ;( because the moves Orlando made where to stem Cleveland and Boston, thats who they have on their minds, its hard to have a true rivalry if you arent the most hated team by the other fans.

Orlando has become our nemesis.

First D12.

Now VC.

It's gonna be some interesting games this season between us...

Orlando is a rival already b/c of the playoff series, I guess
Raps have the Magic's number anyway
Bargs has an advantage over D12, hopefully Bargs improves and takes advantage of his outside game and draw D12 out

It was never Nets/Raptors rivalry. It's just Carter. And yeah, I don't expect things to change with Orlando.

Orlando is going to destroy us next year if we dont have a MASSIVE offseason. They have 3 guys we cant stop at all AND a 18 ppg scorer who takes Bosh away from the rim.

yes, because the rivalry was mainly because of VC and then because of the playoff series with the likes of players like jefferson, kidd
now that none of those players are there and the playoff series was only once unlike the 2 years in a row against the knicks

Damn I'm scared of the Magic.

Starting lineup of a healthy Jameer Nelson, Vince Carter, Rashard Lewis, Hedo Turkoglu, Dwight Howard.

I'd say our rivalry has shifted to the Magic now, lets hope for an amazing offseason baby.

Yea it's over. VC was the only thing keeping it alive and now that he is gone so is the rivalry. I agree with most ppl here and have to say it is now with Orlando. Not justcuz of VC but it was budding even before that

If Turkoglu is gone, I don't see them improving that much
he was the offensive creator of the team , handling the ball and passing
Carter is more of a shoot first player
this is what Wilbon said
