BC is working for someone else... his job is to make sure we sell enough tickets / season tickets for them to make money.

The Turkoglu signing did that... ppl are excited for next year. He's one of the best in the business lol.

We can focus on grooming Jawai into the greatest SG ever lived.

I for one am excited and am looking forward to watching the games. Hell, I'd say I watched 75 of the 82 games last year which was damn painful at times. I think that signing Hedo was a great move and it's got me that much more excited about the upcoming season...hopefully some other additions are on the way.

If he can work something out great. You gotta admit it doesnt look good at this point.

A bench that'll struggle to score 10pts a game puts a lot of pressure on the starters... Calderon still injured leaves a lot of doubt... Starting a rookie at SG... Nothing of value to trade other then the starters and the max offer for free agents being the BAE for $1.8 Mil doesn't give a lot of hope...

I like Ukic's potential but we already saw what happened when Calderon played injured last season with no depth at PG.

Signing Hedo instead of Marion just looks like a huge gamble. I'm hoping he backs out of the deal.

that will be a douche move, BC is definitly better than that, and its more of Marion's fault. He wanted 10 mil when he doesn't even come close to deserving it. You can argue that for Turk too, but there is another team that is willing to pay him that much. Ive never even heard of anyone out there that would sign marion for a little more than MLE. Marion tried to suck ever single dollar he can from the raps, and ended up with nothing. He deservs what he got, he should just retire and open his own strip club.

Cheap? He wanted 10Mil/yr. It obvious that BC realized quickly that Marion didn't want to stay here.

HEdo Turkoglu can GFH.
Hedo (10Mil)> Marion (10Mil)

And i don't care if we have to renounce most or our shitty players.

I posted the same stuff on "Raptors close to sign Shawn Marion". Totally agreed
He sucks, and now we suck. Turkoglu has torn acl and we're starting quincy douby at the 3...

Don't come telling me that we're not done. Just a sign-and-trade Marion to Orlando would save our souls
